Hilton Head Island, pt 3

More beach and landscapes from Hilton Head Island. This series is the first deep dive into my new Nikon z7ii and Nikkor Z 28 – 70mm f2.8 lens. Thus far I have been impressed by the extended dynamic range, low noise and detail as compared to my D720. With the extra resolution, I’m retraining myself to not crop in as close. Not only does it provide more composition opportunities in post, but this also allows squeezing out a little more depth of field when desired.

Toronto Street Photography, pt 3

It’s time to leave Toronto with this final street photography post. I was fortunate to be in such a cool city with a mix of European contemporary flare, old city charm and diverse ethnic character. An excellent recipe for street photography!

South Carolina Backroad Abandoned Building

While deliberately seeking out backroads on a return trip from Sumter, South Carolina, I was rewarded by finding this cool, abandoned structure on North Kings Highway (State Highway 261).  Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find any background info, it does appear to have been some type of manufacturing facility.

I shot with both my Nikon 28 – 300mm and my Tamron 15 – 30mm lens.  There was an abundance of cool light, shapes, textures and patterns.

Street Photography – Toronto, CA

Canada Legal Day One at Saint James

For the past several years, I’ve enjoyed the street photography posted here on WP.  For the first time, I deliberately shot some street photos while visiting Toronto on business a few weeks ago.  Along with the urban landscapes and architectural abstracts, I had a blast shooting in Toronto!
