The cameras that make my favorite images

I rebuilt my portfolio pages, putting together four groups of ten pictures each, grouped as Automotive, Dance, Landscape, and People. As I was whittling my favorite images down to a core of top picks, I realized that a ton of the pictures were in square format, which meant only thing — those images were shot by my TLR, the only 6×6 camera I have in the entire collection.

My friend Angela and I decided to celebrate our nation’s birthday by going to Canada during the 4th of July weekend, heading to Montreal where the Swing Riot took place.

Photo shot on a Nikon D7000 with a Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 lens.
