toronto rooftopping

Vertigo

Yet another rooftop series, but with a new twist. I recently picked up a 14mm ultra wide angle lens primarily for shoots just like this. I decided to revisit one of my favourite look out points, lucky enough for me I was able to visit this time during the day (which is a first for me). There were several shots I had in mind that I wanted to capture, and there were a few that came along with ideas from some of my friends.

14mm on a full frame camera is beautiful. These are some look down shots I have always wanted to capture but is impossible to do without this lens.

This is a spot I have always wanted to visit during the day as the view is quite breathtaking. Unfortunately with recent events with some younger crowds visiting and damaging the property, this spot is out of question now.

Hope you all enjoy the photos! Hopefully they give you some sort of feeling ;)

 

Lens in the clouds

If you asked me a few months ago to scale these kind of heights, I would say you were crazy. Rooftopping has taken storm over the last year or so in Toronto. Whether being done for photography or just taking in a view of the downtown core, it's quite the adrenaline rush.

Recently, I revisited one of my favourite spots in the city. Usually I wouldn't be so hyped to get back and see the same view, but my from my own personal growth in my photography I wanted to recapture the view.

The plan was to get to the lookout for sunrise, but some hiccups along the way changed the plans. An old saying really holds true "A picture doesn't quite do justice". It's something you really have to see in person.

One of my favourite shots from the shoot. I wanted to get a light trail of the cars on the highway. As you would imagine being up this high creates some challenges in taking long exposures, mainly high winds.

The main reason why this is my favourite spot is because you have a 360 degree view of the city, which allows you to capture everything.

We got lucky to get a pretty nice evening, considering the last time I was at this spot it was about -20 with the windchill. It was a decently warm evening with the beautiful moon behind us, as you can see here!

Hope you enjoyed the read + photos!
