Night Mode

S20 Night Mode, no edits

The S20 has several modes, including night mode. I tried it out on a walk last night. This is a challenging photo regarding dynamic range. With the naked eye, I couldn’t see the foreground detail when I took the photo. It’s mind blowing that a cell phone camera can ‘see’ more than the human eye can!

The results of night mode are very impressive. Clean, sharp, good colour, detail… what’s not to love?! 😎

Moving!

Well friends, it has been a slice! After nearly 13 years in Oxbow, the Schultz Clan is MOVING north to the ancestral homeland of Moose Jaw, SK! I want to thank all my photography clients over the past decade! It has been an honour to capture your family memories. I’m looking forward to the photographic opportunities that await in The Jaw.

We shall be in touch! 😎

Back In Action

Well, the main site is back in action after some serious weirdness. Still not exactly sure what happened. But I had to trash and re-upload the entire site. UGGG! Major pain. But at least the gallery is back in the saddle! πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘


Hacked

It appears my portfolio website at http://www.schultzphoto.ca has been hacked. I’m working with my web host to resolve the issue. Not sure exactly what has occurred as I’m using randomized pass-phrases with loads of entropy. Hopefully we will get to the bottom of it soon!


Hallowiener

Every year on Halloween (Or, Reformation Day if you’re really cool), we host the “Hallowiener” at our house. Basically, we sell hotdogs and drink and give all the money to charity. Our neighbourhood comes together and donates all the food so that every dollar we raise goes to the cause. This year, we were very happy to help out our local health centre in their project to buy a new HandiVan. Our one night spooktacular event raised $1073.00 and we sold 160 hotdogs! We had several great donations to the cause that we are super thankful for. Here’s a couple of snapshots really from the event. All with the FujiFilm X-PRO2 and the 23mm f/2 lens. I was cooking hotdogs all night so I didn’t really have time to take many photos. πŸ˜‚ The halloween pumpkin shot at the top of the page was light with the candle inside the Jack O Lantern and a little handheld pocket flashlight (the S1 mini Baton from OLight) feathered just enough to add some shape. That little flashlight never leaves my pocket, I carry it everyday. It’s the most useful item ever. Highly recommend it! 😎 HallowienerCash-1 And I was able to make the presentation to the HandiVan project board today at the hospital. πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘

Unfocused

UnFocused-14

I was out for a little nature walk the other day. I took the D800 and my 105mm Nikkor macro lens which I haven’t shot in a long time. With macro, you need a good tripod to be locked down tight. And, you need cooperative subjects (read: not windy) that stay still. But this particular day I didn’t bring a tripod. In fact, I didn’t even focus. On purpose.Β With most macro and landscape photography, you want hyperfocal focus and even focus stacking to get a big, crisp, tack sharp photo as the end result. But what would happen if you did nature photography out of focus??

It creates a pretty wild, abstract, bokehlicious result! Give it a whirl! πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘
