Longing Look.

Echo, echo.

As an aside, this represents the 5th “test shot” taken with my new-old M3.  As you can tell, most of the test shots were made under awful incandescent lighting (after all, I was only interested in confirming focus accuracy).

Still, there’s something about film and the way it renders even poorly lit scenes.

C’s Comics (Bedtime Imprints).

Imprints.

The frame-by-frame play-by-play of life.

Her imprints left on the table, and in my mind.

And imprints #22 and # 23 on a roll of film — click, click.

And the click of a light switch.

Goodnight.

—Peter.

The haircut, revisited.

Prosophos Home-Made Pizza Dough.

My promise to you — as part of your free membership to this site — is that I’ll continue to work hard to stretch your zero dollars.

So from now on, I will not only be doing my best to answer your questions, but I’ll also be sharing my famous home-made pizza dough with you, the viewer, via iPhone images.

That’s right, images of my very own home-made pizza dough shared with you — online.

While other Canadian photo-bloggers claim to provide you with value for your hard-earned zero dollars, I’m the only Canadian photo-blogger sharing authentic home-made pizza dough with you.

And what is better than home made pizza (dough)?

“Pizza dough for zero dough.”

That’s my promise.

Laugh.

I say the silliest things to her…

On another note, the artificial and mixed back-lighting, and the reflections off the red walls, in this scene are very challenging.  Yet, with the proper pre-processing (a term I believe I coined) and post-processing, the technical issues are mostly overcome.

I know that there will be a few individuals who will insist that I should have used flash, but I vehemently disagree:  the spontaneity and ambiance would have been lost.

I’d feel differently if I was trying to produce a formal portrait — but I wasn’t.

The Neptune Duo smart watch.

Neptune Duo

Warning:  This has nothing to do with photography, but I love good ideas.

The nascent smart watch industry has just been turned upside down by a 20 year old from Montreal.  In Simon Tian‘s world, the watch is the central hub, and the “pocket screen” is just a blank interface.

I don’t know how well his smart watch will work, but I believe he has conceptually bested the likes of Google and Apple.

Check out the Neptune Duo.

Am I wrong to want this?

I’ve been wanting to use this lens for a while.

I’m still resisting it.

Ouch, it hurts.
