Upper Canada Village

A friend and I made another visit to Upper Canada Village in May 2017. I've been to the village many times, but this time I wanted to try something a bit different. Instead of taking mainly telephoto shots of details, I challenged myself to shoot with a wide angle lens for the day and specifically to take photos of some of the reenactors (i.e., people). CLICK HERE to judge for yourself how successful you think I was.

I was inspired to try the wide angle people shots because of a presentation that I attended at the RA Photo Club. The travel photographer who gave that presentation had some quite compelling photographs of people from many cultures taken around the world with a 28 mm focal length lens. I figured, why not give it a try! I'm actually pretty happy with how some of my photos turned out, so you can expect to see some more of this in the future. It's always good to revisit a location, but there's a danger that you'll just take all the same photographs over again. So in these instances I usually set out to try something different - a different type of lens, photographing a different part of the site, etc.
