What’s In My Camera Bag?

We all have different needs and we like to shoot a lot of different things, but we’re always curious to know what is in the other’s camera bag. What gear, what accessory does he use to get these shots? Like some other photographers in our interviews at iLHP, today, I thought I’d share with you a part of my “secret”: the composition of my camera bag.

As a reminder, I mostly shoot macro but I’m starting to do architectural photography and always enjoy shooting lansdcapes, cityscapes and nature photography. My bag is a bag made for hiking, nothing special about photography, I just wanted something inexpensive (I prefer to spend my money into gear and travels) but it needed to be comfortable. Nothing is better than a hiking back-pack with a belt around the hips when you have some weight to carry. I put my lenses into the blue/grey bag to protect them and put it into the big bag. The rest of the accessories are distributed into different pockets of the bag. I use the Capture from Peak Design to attach it easily on the back-pack strap. It’s easy to attach it and to take it off quickly to shoot. I also use the Cuff, also from Peak Design to secure it around my wrist. Continue reading What’s In My Camera Bag?

How To Shoot Timelapse Photography – (Part 1: An Intro)

There comes a time when our creativity reaches a plateau. We want to reach a specific goal, we achieve that objective and we are then ready to move on and master something new and move forward.

I spent a lot of time admiring photographers from my hometown of Toronto who had similar interests to gain inspiration. It would force me to learn new techniques and solve problems I was struggling with. I would see photographers I shot with such as Oscar Flores aka @416shots on Instagram post time lapses and I was immediately impressed. I knew it was something I had to try so I began researching the process.

My First Splash in the Timelapse Waters

There seemed like a lot to learn and take in and I am rather impatient so the quickest and easiest way to try filming a time lapse is on my iPhone 6 and that is just what I decided to do.

Photographing the 2015 Boston Blizzard: Part 2 The Artistic/Macro approach

I know spring is coming but let’s rewind a little bit to this blizzard we underwent during this winter because it offered very interesting things. So how do you photograph extreme conditions in a way nobody does? It depends on the way you look at it.

Part 1 of this series had a common approach winter photography, mostly from a landscape photography point of view. Here, I wanted to explore the situation with a different eye. I wanted to look at perspectives that people wouldn’t see by themselves. I wanted to look at those tiny things that we would forget, but that the camera lens can make us see differently, thanks to the depth of field and bokeh that our eye cannot reproduce naturally.

1 to 1.5 inch for this icicle. The sun gave me this refraction bokeh.

By the way, just imagine one second if we could control our depth of field just with our iris? Wouldn’t that be incredible? Swiss researchers have created the first eye contact lens able to zoom x2.8 just with a blink! Amazing! Anyway, that was the revolutionary high-tech parenthesis.
