Behind The Lens


This was taken at Goldstream Park. Across the highway at Niagara Falls.


It was a last minute decision to go here after visiting the salmon run sometime in the early afternoon.


This was my first attempt at a long exposure. Fortunately I came armed with my tripod and was able to get a few shots of the falls. It was a bit overcast as it normally is here in the Pacific Northwest during the fall.


I came with my new to me mirrorless camera the Canon R with a simple but really versatile 40mm pancake lens (very underrated). I came with my tripod as well which I normally don't have with me.


I am into trying different effects and also experiment. I was watching some of the high school kids as they were splashing in the bone chilling water and had taken a few photos of them at a certain point but thought it would be fun to try the long exposure on the waterfall.


Fortunately the settings were bang on so the post processing from the raw was super intuitive and simple with virtually no adjustments nor filters. Just saved as a .jpg. I am really pleased with the metering on the Canon R systems. Most pictures are out of camera friendly.

In my camera bag

Normally I only have my Huawei phone. I have started to get my R6 ready with the 24-105 native lens if I need to get a picture in our yard.


Out here in the Pacific Northwest it is best to just have a camera with a versatile (all rounder) lens ready to go with a full battery (or extra one) and some memory cards. And just grab the opportunity.
