Trying Out the New Camera Part 2

It’s late, but here it is! This week I’m posting some pictures of some interesting garbage I saw. I definitely like the second picture better. Kinda looks like some artsy junk with a deeper meaning, but I just liked the composition. And I couldn’t turn down the chance to photograph soemone’s discarded shoes.

Sask Expo Cosplayers!

Last weekend was Sask Expo here in Saskatoon, and on Sunday my good friend Matt and I took some photos and talked photography. Here are some of my favourite costumes from the expo!

Testing out the new camera part 1

My local photography shop has a back to school sale going on and they had a camera on for 50% off that, while not new, was a major upgrade from mine. It was pretty much the only thing within my price range that was any better than my t3i, so now I’m the proud owner of a Canon EOS M 3! It’s my first mirror less camera and it’s got a 24 megapixel sensor,  six more than my old camera, and some faster video recording capabilities. The only bummer was that I had to shell out some extra cash for a lens adapter. Either way, I went out and took some photos around the area of Saskatoon I now live in. The pictures I took turned out pretty well so I’m definitely happy with the M3s photo capabilities. I was surprised to see how large the files were when I uploaded them before realizing that this camera has a setting for even higher resolution raw photos than the T3i did. I may have to lower the resolution setting next time ’cause these ones were pretty huge! I’m not sure when I am going to get out to take more pictures so I’m going to space these ones out a bit. So, here’s part one!

Not far from my apartment is the North Saskatchewan river. In the first photo I used my 50mm Canon lens to take a picture of a building. I don’t know what the building was, and architectural photography is definitely not my usual go to, but I thought I’d give it a shot.  In the second picture I liked how the underside of the bridge kind of framed it. That picture was taken with my Rokinon 85mm and is my favourite of the few I snapped of this specific building.

I found a few other interesting things on my little walk, which I’ll be posting over the next couple weeks! Come back next Wednesday for more!
