Canada Place and Downtown

Back in March, 2007, I did a lot of shooting to get acquainted with my D50 which I had purchased in October of 2006. It's been a mainstay until 2010 when it got replaced by the D300s. I still occasionally pull out the D50 when I'm practicing new techniques, however it has pretty much retired and is enjoying a rather sedate time in my camera bag as a backup camera. But I hope one of these days, I can replace it with a D400 or whatever replaces that. With the saving up for a wildlife lens and the supports for it, I'll be tight on cash for quite some time afterward.

Canada Place is one of the most iconic and photogenic buildings in Vancouver. Built for Expo 86, the building is 26 years old as of this summer. With the new Vancouver Trade and Convention Center, the area surrounding Coal Harbour and Canada Place has changed considerably from when Canada Place was first built.

Here are some of the photos from back when I was teaching myself how to shoot photography with a DSLR.

Don't shoot towards the sun (or any light source for that matter). Otherwise you blow out a section of the sky and end up fading out your photograph, it's not artistic...and it makes your photo too faded be worth anything.

I hope to make another run up to Canada Place with the 70-200mm VRII, 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 and 50mm f/1.8 to see what other ideas I can come up with. The challenge is finding new ways to present places with photography.

Happy Shooting
