Ottawa Skyline
Stitched portrait photos are all the rage lately, so I’m practicing a bit with some complex panoramic shots to get a feel for how this works.
I tried one environmental portrait, but that was a complete disaster. This one is 9 horizontal photos at 180mm. It was really windy so I ended up pumping the ISO much more than I would have wanted, but I felt the need for a faster shutter.
It came out with no stitching errors or any weird stuff, so my confidence is up a bit now. I might try a pano on my next editorial shoot.

Waiting for the light to fall a bit to experiment with some *stitched* photos. Using a bunch of tele shots to make a wide angle look.

Hanging at pride, talking to people about saving the environment. The left wing liberal hippie tree hugger kinda lyfe.

Less Cliche Ottawa Photo
This is a pretty weird statue. That’s pretty much all I got. And I managed to squeeze Parliament and the Library into the frame, so that’s cool.
I also just really dig the contrast between yellow tungsten lights and and blue twilight sky, it makes good photos.

Cliche Ottawa Sunset Photo
What else can I say? It’s been done a thousand times. It’s still really pretty though.

Metal Photo Prints
This photo is probably a terrible representation of what I’m trying to explain.
Anyway, I made this “metallic metal” print the other day and I am really stoked about it, so I wanted to tell all the other photographers out there how awesome these are.
Above we have the exact same file printed on wet lab paper on the left and a sheet of metal on the right. I went with the “metallic” finish, which means there is no white base coat on the metal so all the *metallic-ness?* of the sheet is visible through the photo. In real life the metal print has much more dynamic range, mostly shadow detail, and the texture/mid tone contrast is way punchier. And then there is some undescribable aesthetic about the metal that just makes the print look more interesting than paper.
Anyway, I highly recommend trying out some metal prints, I think they are A+.
