New Name & Domain

Picture 2

Some of you may have noticed the name of this blog has recently changed. After doing a very unscientific poll with my friends on Facebook I have found most people prefer the new and current name “The People of Calgary” over the old “Calgary People” name. I have also registered the domain name http://www.thePeopleofCalgary.com. The old address still works, but this one is a little easier to remember for people who are not on wordpress.

For the Photographers & Curious

Canon AE-1 Program with 50mm 1.4 S.S.C.

Camera used: Canon 7D & 24-70L @ 70mm – Settings: 5sec / f18 / ISO 100 – 1 flash behind & 1 LED to camera left.

Often when I see a photo I like I wonder what camera & lens were used and what settings the photographer had set. With this in mind I have decided to add this information with each photo I post on here. You will find the information directly under the each photo. This information is easy enuf to find if you know where to look, but this will just make it a little easier.

Politely Rejected in Public

I shot this right after being politely rejected once again haha.

Camera: Canon 1DiiN & 50L – Settings 1/125th // f4 // ISO 400

Sorry it has been so long between posts! I just wanted to give you guys an update as to what is going on with the blog. First of all, I went back to BC for Christmas so I wasn’t in town to find any people to talk to and take pictures of. Second, I have tried asking people and have found my self in a “I just asked a girl on a date and she said no” type of situation haha. Only this is happening in front of loads people on public streets and such! Making it even worse lol. It has been quite unnerving to say the least.

The blog will live on! I went out again yesterday to ask some people and only found the nerve to ask one person and yet again she said no. I am sure I would have found some one if I had more than 20 minutes to get it done or I wasn’t such a coward and just asked the people I want to ask when I see them, rather than look at them with a double take and watch them walk past me and out of my life before they enter it. Oh well! haha. I have a little more spare time today, so I am going to take my camera and iphone and make sure I find at least one person downtown willing to talk to me for this blog! 🙂
