Ohh James…

I had the great opportunity and pleasure of working with my dear old friend James Correa. It was a perfect Spring evening, the light was fantabulous and I was waiting impatiently to try my carl zeiss t* planar 50mm f/1.4 with an FX mount for the X-pro1. Which would be like a 80mm or so on a full frame body. And thus, a love story was reborn!

Some very minor retouching and color correcting were done in photoshop and VCSO film. And I love the manual focus on this cam, I don’t know why so many people bitch about it :)

Thanks for watching!

Stars of Summer

I have to admit this Summer sucked! Most of the time we had rain and  some cold weather… if it wasn’t for our trip in Tunisia it would have been a disaster :) August and September though brought me some nice opportunities to keep shooting. Here are some highlights of what I call “My two weeks of Summer”

Let’s start with Sofia at Chris’s and Annie’s place in Morin Heights

Lily as energetic as always :)

Next stop was at my friend Ian’s and Lynn’s place. I always enjoy taking pictures of Vince… he reminds some much of his father when he was younger, same attitude but with a deep soul.

Believe me, I don’t let just anybody hold my camera… Vince has an eye for pictures!

We had a lovely time! Easpecially the two hour street hockey game we played… I realized I wasn’t 18 anymore! But at least I didn’t feel quilty about having the wine and cheese later on! :)

Last but not least was a pool party at Fred’s place… I always enjoy taking pictures there. I do it so often that I feel like they don’t pay attention to me anymore… and that’s when you get the fun shots, the one’s you can see coming.

Thought it was only appropriate to finish with this shot. :)

Hope everyone is doing great! Thanks for watching!

If you are curious, all the b&w stuff and some color were shot with the Contax 645 / 80mm 2.0 Zeiss glass / Ilford Pan F50 and Portra NC 160… all other stuff with the Canon 5d and 50mm 1.4 or 28mm 1.8

Ciao!
