Back in the Kawartha Lakes

The best camera is the one you have, I had left my gear at my parent's place since the drive home last week was a bit crazy with the snow storm.  This shot is just a quick pull-over on the side of the highway as I saw the sun rising through the ice mist on what is supposed to be the hottest day this winter.  The Lumia 950 has a great camera, but unfortunately It just doesn't have the huge sensor a real DSLR has.  Hindsight is 20-20, I let the phone handle the shot in auto mode because I wanted to do HDR, but the results weren't worth it.  Still, it is not a bad photo considering the lack of planning.  I had hoped to start doing some content for Youtube this weekend, but it appears I need to help my parents move things into storage in preparation for them to sell their house.  This is a long weekend, so hopefully there will be some snow left on monday, and hopefully on monday I can take a break and get some shots with my 6D.

Ebay is the best!

12-24 on the cheap!

12-24 on the cheap!

This just showed up at my "Real Job".  Special thanks to Canada Post for marking a shipment 'delivered' and then actually delivering it a full two business days afterwards.  With this Sigma 12-24 which is previously loved, I have all the gear I need to really get into real estate photography.  Checking the local going rates for Pro Photogs doing the same thing around Toronto I see that there's not a whole pile of money in it.  I'm hoping to focus on properties in rural areas, and even northern ontario where I have not been able to find many, if any, working.  On the side, I'll be exposed to many great landscapes in the area to increase my portfolio.  

On the road again

Didn't see much of this guy today!

Today I'm in Lindsay Ontario with my parents who are in the midst of downsizing in preparation to move to their new 'forever home' in Northern Southern Ontario.  I will be taking a few shots with my light box and helping them sell some of the smaller items on EBay that might benefit from a larger audience.  Last night's drive was a bit fun, due to the 10cm of snow that dumped in the period of 3-4 hours, but thankfully my Subaru handled it all like a champ.  As I build this online presence there will be more content and options coming around on a weekly, and maybe even daily basis, so watch this space for updates!
