datePosted on 13:35, April 25th, 2011 by Many Ayromlou

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a photo post, so here is a newish one from a couple of recent shoots with TSG (Toronto Strobist Group).

First a sample from our Holiday 2010 shoot (Full flickr set can be viewed here).

iPhone Hipstamatic/Lo-Mob samples…..

IMG_0363 These were taken a while back, before I moved to the new house. I thought it might be a good visual review of the Hipstamatic and Lo-Mob Apps for the iPhone. Ofcourse there are literally a bazillion combinations of effects between these two apps. The complete set  is on flickr.

Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks…..

datePosted on 21:56, April 25th, 2010 by Many Ayromlou

Yep, new pics from a recent trip. If you ever get a chance and you’re around Wyoming, you might want to drop by these two parks. They are absolutely awesome. Best time is probably May-September. We were there on April 16th (for 4 days) and some of the roads (actually a lot of them) were closed due to snow. Check their website for road closures…..they are not kidding, there is tons of snow up there :-) The rest of the set is on Flickr as usual.


Back to Pics……

Wow I just realized I hadn’t posted any of my recent photos. I think the last set was from my trip to Portland. Anyways, I guess this will be a combo post. I’ve been busy shooting people for a bit before the holidays (Toronto Strobist Group and a private shoot) and while that was fun, I also gave food a try recently. I have to admit Food Photography looks easy (light from the back, blah, blah, blah), but it’s damn hard to get a good shot. Getting the food to do what’s in your head is another mammoth task, all hail the Food Stylists, they are (potentially) more important than the photographer. Last but not least, was my night out with the Toronto Photographic meetup group. More than a hundred photographers decended on Markham Theater for Performing Arts to photograph Ballet Jörgen Canada’s dress rehearsal for Cindrella.

As always the full photosets are here, here, here and here :-).

It’s been a little while since I’ve posted any pics. I’ve been transfering my workspace from my old Macbook Pro to the new 27″ iMac, so things have backed up a bit. Here are the pictures from a recent trip to Portland Oregon to attend the Super Computing Conference.


As usual the complete set can be viewed on flickr.

Project Pomegranate…..

Had sometime to kill on the weekend and a couple of Pomegranates were asking to be eaten :-). So I decided to photograph their trip to my tummy….complete flickr set here.

Russian Lenses Rule :-)

datePosted on 20:50, October 31st, 2009 by Many Ayromlou

It’s late fall here in Toronto and I thought I give my M42 Russian lens, Helios 40-2, one more test. This time going for colour and as much swirly bokeh as this thing can produce…..

The colour reproduction of this lens is muted. It needs a bit of a kick, but once you kick it up a notch and add some contrast, it rocks. Check out the swirly bokeh in the out of focus leaves. Full flickr set is here.


TPMG Fall Colour drive….

This is slightly old, but it’s still officially fall… here are a bunch of fall colour shots from a recent Toronto Photographers Meetup Group trip to Hockley Valley, Cannings Falls, Hogg’s Falls, Eugenia Falls and Old Baldy Lookout Point. Complete flickr set can be viewed here…..

More fall colours to come…..stay tuned…

Helios 40-2 Test Shoot – Fall Garden

datePosted on 13:14, October 10th, 2009 by Many Ayromlou

I finally had a chance to take my newest acquisition — a Helios 40-2 85mm/1.5 Lens — out for a shoot. Nothing fancy just stuff in the backyard. This lens for those who don’t know has a specific optical aberration that allows it to produce the so-called “swirly bokeh” effect. Check the out of focus shot of leaves below to get an idea of what it looks like. The complete set as usual is on flickr.
