Recent Projects

This is one of my favourite shots of the Arctic Shores Pavilion.  When I walked the site with the project architect in advance of taking any photos we talked about including some winter shots in the final selections.  This is almost exactly the vision that came to mind; a photo from an elevated position with loads of snow on a bright winter day.

Canon 5DII with Canon 24mm TSE lens; f14at 1/60 sec.  This is a compostion of two photos; the bottom and the top.  This technique effectively doubles the resolution of the camera sensor; the 5DII is a 21 megapixel full frame camera so with merging the files the file size is 42 megapixels (or thereabouts).  I did this so the file could be printed at very large size with no loss of sharpness.  Lastly, I used the tilt function of the lens to hold the sharpness in the foreground and the distant elements. more thing; there was a Singh Ray 3 stop soft edge neutral density filter over the sky to hold the details and darken it a bit.  RAW files edited in Adobe Lightroom; merging and final edit made with Adobe Photoshop CS5.
