Photography Self-Crit, 2012 – 2013

Another selfcrit, here we go

I didn’t go to a lot of events or take that many pictures in general (read: I’ve been super lazy and haven’t been bothering to write up entries for the things I’ve taken in the past year, not like that they were that eventful anyways) so I’m going to just lump everything together and do another self-crit. More below. Continue reading

Canada’s Wonderland

Canada’s Wonderland

June 16 & 26, 2012

It’s been a long time since I’ve last gone to Wonderland, maybe 5 years or so.

I’ve never been a real roller coaster fanatic so I figured I’d take my camera with me and practice a bit while I had the chance to sit and wait for my friends as they went on rides, so this is mostly going to be a self-critique of some of the pictures I took there.

Leviathan’s Sign. Had some at an angle, but the lighting isn’t that great.

The Invention of Hugo Cabret / Hugo

The Invention of Hugo Cabret

A couple years ago, I came across a DIY magazine known as Make. Their theme that issue was steampunk, and thus featured different steampunk styled works, people and crafts. One of the things featured was a five-hundred thirty-four (I didn’t typo there. It really is 534) page picture book titled The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick.

I suppose I’ll begin with this: To the people expecting to see an action flick – you may find the movie extremely boring.

Nuit Blanche 2011

Scotiabank Nuit Blanche

In which we take artistic photos of art.

October 1 – 2, 2011

There’s a free art event that runs in Toronto from “6:59 pm to sunrise”; according to their official twitter, about 7AM.

I’ve gone twice before, but never with a large group. It’s easy to say that going in bigger groups is more fun, at least, until you lose someone. Or four.

There’s a lot of things I missed pictures of, but I’ve linked all pieces to their respective pages on the Nuit Blanche website, which provides a short explanation and image. Continue reading

Sony Tablet S

Sony Tablet S

It’s… like a Vaio. But even smaller.

Had a total epiphany the other day and wondered, “why aren’t I using Flickr for pictures? So here we go. Please bear with me, I was giddy with excitement and took snapshots instead of actual photos. Continue reading

Centre Island 2011

Centre Island Picnic – June 24, 2011

Got to test new camera. A lot of photos ended up blurry since I’m not used to manual lens.

Less shoot-like pictures and more crack.

Projects Review : 2009 to 2011

So it’s been 2 years since I started to go to OCAD, and there’s been a shitton of projects. Some of them were awesome, some of them were terrible.  Some of them I lost, some I broke, some I never got back.

So here’s a bunch I didn’t trash/lose. Which happen to be a few of my favourites. Continue reading

Nintendo 3DS

Got the 3DS in aqua today; was a bit surprised that it’s more turquoise than I thought it would be. The shimmer gloss effect is beautiful though – if I got a black one I’d really never need to bring a mirror with me ever again. The lineup for it was disappointing; probably because I had it preordered, lining up with my mom for the iPad 2 was a lot more interesting.

Onto pictures, I guess! Continue reading
