Lock 25

I haven’t been to a camera club meeting since last November. Honestly, I thought I was done with the club but started thinking back to all the outings and how they actually got me out shooting – something I’ve been struggling with lately. Last night we went to Lock 25 on the Otonabee River between…

Harley Farms

Two weeks ago, our camera club outing was at a 500 acre farm just north of Keene, Ontario.The black flies were out in full force, but the evening light was awesome, so we pushed through. We were given a guided tour of the property and walked for so long and far, that by the end of the…

I was using my 50mm f/1.8 and was trying to capture the whole scene and draw…

More Peterborough at Night

Tonight our camera club went out downtown Peterborough to shoot night scenes as we’re focusing on low light photography this month. I’ve already been out shooting at night downtown twice in the past week so I was unsure where I was going to go. I ended returning to a couple places I had previously visited…

Deep in Thought

Over the past month, our camera club has been focused (pun intended) on macro or close up photography. Since I have no money, I can’t go out and pick up a proper macro lens, so I found a cheap alternative and bought a set of close up filters which basically just screw on to the…
