One of the things that I promised Lennard that I would do while I was visiting him was to show him some photography techniques so today we took the day and went out shooting.  We talked about aperture, shutter speed, as well as how to design a photo.  Certain techniques that help to enhance a photo visually and then we put them into practice.  The day was perfect for a photo lesson too, the sun…

Pictures from My Walk Around Bruxelles

There are so many things to take photos of and the architecture here in Bruxelles is so different than what I have seen in the other cities I have been to.  Mainly it is baroque and gothic though unfortunately a lot of it has been replaced with modern buildings.  There are still quite a lot to see and very interesting things all around the city as well.  Scroll down to the bottom of the page…

A Day at the Acropolis of Athens

The Acropolis of Athens is just an amazing place to take photos that I both my iPhone and my Holga out at the same time trying to capture as many images as I can.  Below is a gallery of the other images that I took today from my trip to the Acropolis.  The Parthenon is currently undergoing some reconstruction although I'm not sure to what extent.  I might also visit the Acropolis Museum as well…

Taking Photos in the Rain

I was just getting ready to set up my camera to take a photo of the prized mango tree in the courtyard of Los Amigos for Ferdinando when it started to rain on Monday night.  It didn't rain hard but each droplet was large and in no time the ground was shimmering.  At first we almost abandoned our attempts for the night, then I remembered the beach umbrella!  It only took a few seconds to…

Monaco

I spent the day here in Monaco and just took in the sites.  There is much money in the country it is unbelievable!  It might be one of my favourite places already and I've only been here for not even a day.  Maybe some day I will have enough money to step inside the Casino Monte Carlo and do some high stakes gambling after showing up in my luxurious super yacht.  Wouldn't that be the…

My friend got hit up to to do an engagement photo shoot for a friend of his and was recruited to help him out and give some advice as well as be his "assistant".  The site that the couple chose was a beautiful area known as Lands End.  However, the weather here in San Francisco is very unpredictable.  Something that is almost certain is fog.  Lets just say, today the fog rolled in HEAVY.  Not…

Film and X-Ray

I know many, perhaps even all, of you don't know that there was a time that people did use something called FILM to take photos.  Nowadays we have it easy.  Digital cameras that weigh next to nothing, even the dSLR cameras are light.  I want a camera that is built like a tank and weighs like one too.  I'll take a Hasselblad over some 12 megapixel dSLR any day of the week.  However, it also…

Welcome!

Welcome to the Where is Ken Today? I will be leaving my beautiful hometown, Vancouver, British Columbia, on August 28th for a whole year!  My first stop will be one of my favourite cities, San Francisco.  I spent almost 7 years there for school and work so it will definitely be nice to visit again.  It is time to catch up with friends, eat burritos, and maybe this time I'll even check out the local…
