Supershow Leather FashionsSupershow Leather FashionsSupershow Leather Fashions

The International Centre's 5000 parking spaces were overflowing with visitors to the Motorcycle Supershow. It was minus 10 outside but these gorgeous models in the leather fashion show made it easy to think of warm summer days. Start your engines.

These were shot with a Canon 5D, 70-200 mm lens, f5.6 at ISO 800 with a flash.

George McLean - Canadian Artist

George McLean by George Socka

I interviewed George McLean at the McMichael on the opening of his exhibit of Canadian Wildlife and Landscape titled The Living Landscape. I also shot a few available light and low light stills, which in the gallery is pretty low to preserve the paintings. This was shot in gallery space that was not yet hung, with two umbrellas on video lights at ISO 2500. 1/125 second f4.5.

Eat your heart out Yousuf Karsh!

Green Power @ 2011 Toronto Motorcycle Supershow

Green Kawasaki ZX-14Snow on the ground in Toronto after a January storm, but the Toronto Motorcycle Supershow was full of summer toys. I am referring of course, the motorcycles, eh? This 1350 cc Kawasaki Ninja ZX14 was in the stunt rider's booth.

The bike was shot with a Canon 5DII, 70-200 f2.8 and a 580EXII speedlight. The motorcycle has been composited onto a photo of power panels in a factory being demolished. The factory was shot with a 24-105 f4 lens. This composition was submitted to a photo contest on "power" at fStoppers.com.

Trade show booth video provides great visiblility

The National Yacht Club trade show booth video for the Toronto International Boat Show went live today. Visibility of the short, large, high contrast titles, designed to draw visitors to the booth proved to be excellent. Even more fortunately, the booth is in an area of open display areas, without walls, improving the ability to notice the video from half way across the Direct Energy Centre show floor.
