Wandering in Old Québec

While I was in Quebec City for Festival d’été,  I used the Sunday morning for exploring the old city, especially Chateau Frontenac. Here are some photos taken during my journey:

Camera Lens Mug

IMG_8047For Father’s Day I bought dad a mug that looks exactly like Canon’s 24-105mm lens. I placed my order on eBay but noticed that it was shipped from xcsource.com, so you should check them out if you want your own.
IMG_8048The details of the replica are pretty astounding. The AF and IS buttons actually move. For an extra buck or two you can actually have it say “Canon” where it is supposed to, I just didn’t realize it when I ordered.
IMG_8052We don’t actually have the 24-105 lens, so above is a photo next to the 24-70mm. Close enough eh? Hope dad doesn’t accidentally pour coffee in his real lenses!

Henry’s Exposure Show

Exposure Photo Expo 6/1/2013
On Saturday, I attended Henry’s Exposure Photo & Video Imaging Show. It was camera gear galore but there were also mini stations to practise different types of photography. I was carrying the heavy 70-200mm which I’m not quite used to yet but I was happy with the results.

There was this random couple (or so I think) posing for fake wedding photos. I edited these shots to make them softer and wedding-like.

There was this awesomely lit chair where you could sit and take your own photographs and my parents wanted some photos.

And some more random photos:

It was fun shooting in different styles and I think I didn’t do too badly!

Photographer In Training

Ironically, this photo was taken with an iPhone

For Christmas, I received a brand new Canon 60D and an 18-135mm lens. I’ve already bought a billion filters and accessories for it. As well, I also got a book that explains all the different Canon lenses. I think this is the start of a new addiction. I have tested the camera and the colours on it are amazing even in low light. It is far superior than dad’s Canon Rebel which I have used in the past. I still have yet to leave the house and actually do some shooting though. I hope to share with you my progression as I find my style as a photography. You are warned though, by now you know I’m far too weird and diverse to settle on one thing. Be prepared to witness concerts, food and just the beauty of life through my lens.
