My Hasselblad rejuvenation

About a month ago I decided to buy a whole new photographic system. After renting and experimenting with a digital medium format (DMF) system from Don's Photo, I ended up buying a full system from a local photographer, not just a new camera but a whole new imaging system: a Hasselblad 500c/m including multiple lenses.

The reason I purchased a whole new system, is that over the last year I feel I've lost my photo mojo. Since I spend so much time and effort trying to make a living with commercial photography, I ended up wandering away from the more creative side of my photography including doing any personal photography projects. Even when I'm out of the city exploring new areas, shooting landscapes and starscapes (which are my passion), I always have it in the back of my mind that I could end up using the shots commercially in some way. This has caused me to get away from all the funky angles and different effects like zooming and motion blur that used added a unique edge to my photography.

After noticing this, I wanted a way to get back the magic and fun of photography, my photo mojo if you will! At first, I went out and shot film again, both slides and colour infrared (some of the last colour IR in existence sadly since it has been discontinued) but still wasn't satisfied since it was a very similar system and process to what I was used to. However, this new digital medium format (DMF) system has been a great inspiration.

With a Hasselblad, although there are techniques to shoot faster, you simply don't want to. The system itself makes you want to slow down and take the time to consider your photograph more than you would with the more versatile 35mm format. I'm very happy I've found this new system as it's allowed me to rekindle that "go out and play" side of my photography and even gotten me back to doing the same with my 35mm systems.

The above gallery contains several examples of the more fun side of my photography and also includes resolution tests which are tested side by side with my 35mm digital system. You can find a review of my new equipment including side by side comparisons and resolution tests on my local photography site (In the Reviews section)

Thanks to all those who helped me with this new system including Ben S., Don's photo and everyone at for reminding me with their own photos that you should always keep the fun factor in your photography!

Starscapes and star trails with my new D3.

D3 First photos

My first impressions of the D3 are very good. After shooting with it for just a short time you can already tell that it's well beyond the D300 as it captures much more subtle tones thusly more dynamic range, it handles better, the second CD slot is really useful and the ergonomics of the camera make it so nice to shoot with.

December 4, 2007

Today I was the first person in Winnipeg to take ownership and shoot off a few frames with my new Nikon D3. (Big thanks again to Don's Photo!)

My initial thoughts after receiving the D300 last week where: "Do I really need a D3 as well?" and now with the new camera in hand and after having taken a few test shots with it I can answer a resounding "Yes!" DOF is one of those separators between the cameras as well as high ISO. The D3 is truly in a different league like comparing a Mustang to a Ferrari, both great vehicles but clearly one of them does a much better job!

Thanks to all the models who have contacted me. I'll now be looking to book times with you and any others who want to get in on a free shoot! Just contact me at for more info.

D300 test shots 1

November 27, 2007

Today I was the first person to take ownership of a Nikon D300 in Winnipeg. Huge thanks to Don's photo! I'm also looking forward to receiving my Nikon D3 later on this week or early next week.
After some quick tests with the D300 I realize that it's much more than just an upgraded D200. The body feels more solid and along with the new magnesium alloy grip the whole feeling of the system is more solid. I've also been very impressed with the few tests I've done at higher ISOs all the way up to 3200 which looks like ISO800 on a D200.
More tests and updates to come.

Free portrait and model photo shoots!
I'm looking for a few models to test out some new cameras and you do not have to be a professional. I currently have one of the cameras and will be receiving two more in late November/early December. So if you have ever wanted to have portraits or model photos done and haven't been able to afford them, now is the time since I'll be happy to do it for free as long as I can use the photos on my sites.
Feel free to check out my "Who" gallery for an idea of some of the types of shoots and then contact me at

I just bought a full Hasselblad system including three lenses and a bunch of other goodies. The first is a full view (resized for web) of a full sized 16mp image and the second is a cropped photo.
Shooting in MF is a real challenge and has it's advantages (quality/MP) over DSLR (versatility). More tests to come.

Winnipeg from a helicopter

My ride in a helicopter.

Once in a while I get a really special opportunity that I just have to step back and appreciate, this was one of those cases when I got to ride in a helicopter.
For a long time I've wanted to fly high above Winnipeg however, in a hot air balloon, they can't guarantee that you'll even come anywhere near Winnipeg, small aircraft and helicopters cost about $1000/hr to rent so both of these where out of the question. Until that is I had the opportunity to fly on News1. Huge thanks to all involved, Vic, Colin, Matt, Kristin and others.

Info about helicopters, Matt the pilot gave me the following information. Traffic1 flies 1700ft above sea level. Winnipeg is 700ft above sea level so we where flying about 1000ft off the ground. For comparison, CanWest Global tower is 419ft tall & a football field is 300ft long. In other words we where flying at just over 2 CanWest buildings or over 3 football fields high.
