Today was the first day I was able to take my new lens out for a test run. The 50mm Art Lens is very new on the market but it’s a killer. Quite big and heavy for a 50mm, but the quality is robust and the images are here for you to judge for yourself. Many were shot wide open at f/1.4. Although the lens doesn’t tend to flare to easily (because of special coatings) it does resolve extreme backlight very well and this can be seen in the photo of Masha on the pathway looking up. The theme of today’s shoot was business woman gets lost on the way to the office ;)

Light After The Storm - English Bay Timelapse Vancouver. from Alex Kryszkiewicz on Vimeo.

Sept 2nd 2014 was my birthday. When I woke up that morning it was miserable as hell. There was random bad news circling around some of my friends and family and the weather was dire at best. We cancelled our plans for a hike and relegated ourselves to a cozy coffee shop in Kitsilano (Benny’s Bagels). But that evening when we returned to our AirBnB home in English Bay something happened. As we walked down to the beach a fat slab of gold appeared on the horizon and through the spitting rain we started to witness the visual effects of a post-storm sunset. The mountain-rimmed ocean shimmered in purple and orange fire and a rainbow formed over the neighbourhood of English Bay (quite fitting for Vancouver’s Gay district). Luckily I had a few cameras to hand so I did my best to capture it.

The music is Vibrant Scene by Jon and Roy, of Victoria, BC, Canada:

The cameras were:
Wide 270 timelapse - GoPro Hero3 Black Edition
Tight TL - Canon 1DC, 100mm 2.8L Macro
Live Action - iPhone 5S

The photographer in the shot is my friend Morgan Leik and you can see his images here:

The girl is my wife :)

The AirBnB was very comfortable and only 2 short blocks from this beach:
