Junction Triangle Foot Bridge

 

 

 

The Junction Triangle is a tiny neighbourhood located in West Toronto. It is squeezed in between the Junction, Roncevalles and Bloordale Village. The “triangle” shape of the neighbourhood is formed by the three sets of railroad tracks on the north, west, and east sides.

The Wallace Avenue pedestrian bridge was built around 1907 and it connects the neighbourhood to Dundas Street West. You can check out this photo taken in 1916 from the City of Toronto Archives.

 

 

Sherbourne Common

 

 

Sherbourne Common is a 1.5 hectare waterfront park located at Lower Sherbourne Street. It is the first park in Canada to integrate an ultraviolet facility for neighbourhood-wide storm water treatment facility into its design. The architect is Phillips Farevaag Smallenberg.

Sherbourne Common has transformed a former industrial area into much needed public greenspace on the lake. The project won the National Urban Design Award in 2012.

HDR Artistry Workshop

Cimetiere du Montparnasse, Paris, France

I will be teaching the ‘HDR Photography’ workshop on June 23rd, 2012 at Pikto in Toronto’s Distillery District. It is a full-day workshop from 10 AM to 5 PM.

If you like more info, please visit Pikto’s site here.


Here’s the workshop description:

High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) is a process where photographers create images with a wide range of brightness between highlights and shadows to obtain more tonal detail. This can be achieved through software technique by using just one RAW file or multiple fiels with different exposures.

In this workshop you will learn to edit a single image with raw convertor and Photoshop layering to maximize details in highlights and shadows. You will be shown techniques of exposure blending from multiple originals in Photoshop and other current HDR applications like NIK HDR Efex Pro. Tone mapping will also be discussed for creating special effects.

This workshop is recommended for photographers who are looking at producing sylized and dynamic images in a more creative way.

Requirements: DSLR Camera and tripod
