For this weeks photo from the archives I've selected this picture from autumn of 2008. CE Franklin no longer has their name on this building but I still like the photo; particularly the reflection on the water in the foreground.
2018 is the tenth anniversary year of Jim Dobie Photography. From time to time I'm going to post images from 2008 - here's the first. This the Art Gallery of Alberta. It was taken on September 13, 2008 with my Canon 40D using a Sigma 10-20 lens;1/16 of second at f/11; ISO 100. The photo was commissioned by HIP Architects who worked as associate architects on the project with the late Randall Stout Architect of Los Angeles.
Taking photos of groups of people presents all sorts of challenges and in the winter finding a location is one of the most significant. I was able to secure some time at the Fairmont to photograph this family. They have rules in the hotel that prevent using studio lighting and using extension cords so I used 3 battery powered strobes triggered using the flash master and slave settings. This is the first photo taken that day and it's one of my favourites.
