TS lens trials

After being so impressed with the photographs done by Vincent Laforet with the TS (Tilt-Shift) lenses (check the CN Portfolio series), I decided to rent the Canon TS 24mm f3.5 lens for the weekend and try it with my 5D. Although it takes some getting used to, I managed to get some shots I am happy with. If you check Vincent Laforet's blog entry for today, do not miss the HD videos he is making with the new EOS 5D MkII soon to released by Canon. In particular the aerial shot of New York taken with a TS lens.

I am no Vincent Laforet, but here are two of the shots taken on Sunday with the TS lens (click the photo to enlarge):

Early winter shots

Winter is slowly coming. It has been snowing lightly for the past two days and the temperature has been below the freezing point.

Here are two shots taken yesterday in Gatineau Park.

Sunday afternoon stroll launches its experimental website with the project @600

Several photographers around the world have been invited to take part in the @600 project on November 4, 2008 @600 Internet time. The organizers have reserved 25 spots for other photographers. The final selection will be selected by a jury and will be announced on November 21.

All participating photographers will take one photograph at the same moment. These photographs will be joined and archived on the website for a unique document of that special moment.

The organizers are still looking for photographers from Canada and have asked me to pass on the word.
