It’s a regular event, possibly a tradition, that I go down to visit my family in Dundas the weekend before Christmas. This year was no different. We took some time to go into town and do some shopping.
Downtown Dundas is a classic small town with a main street full of small shops. Rarely do we not come away having found something interesting or new treasure. Its the way I like it, unlike in Ottawa in the suburbs where there is no central location like this.
I few shots of the town, all decked out for the holidays. All shot with my Fuji X100T.
A friend is selling her house and moving to the country. She asked me to come by and shoot some of the rooms that she had updated and painted for upcoming showings. No problem. I even retook a few that her agent originally did that I thought could have been a bit brighter. She is thrilled with the new shots, and in her words:
“It’s pretty awesome… makes me want to live there. Wait a minute…”
It was a very easy setup. I retook some outside shots with my Fuji X-T1 and did the indoors with my Nikon D700 with a 16-35 f4. The tripod was a key component to this as the shots were at f8 and most needed at least 1.5 seconds or more to get a good exposure. I popped a flash here and there to light up the darker corners as well.
Here is a sample.
