A Look at the Huawei P10

Advances in smartphone technology has been phenomenal over the last few years. From larger screens to dual lenses on the back, every manufacturer from Samsung to Apple to LG has been pulling out all the stops to attract new customers and gain more market share. So wouldn’t you think it’s crazy for another manufacturer to […]

Alone on the Toronto Islands

With the Toronto Islands officially reopening tomorrow (Monday, July 31), it’s an exciting time for Torontonians who have missed their dose of beautiful views, picnics under the tree, kayaking throughout the islands, and biking around its many paths. The recent increase in water levels here in Toronto started from a constant rainfall that plummeted the […]

Product Review: Oowa Lenses

Mobile photography has become so popular within the last few years thanks to the advances in the technology mobile devices use. With iPhones spitting out billboard-worthy photos, there seems to be an ever-growing trend to see which mobile device can capture the best image. Using just the device, however, may have its limitations—and that’s where […]

Product Review: Sleeklens Workflow

One of the best things about post-processing may also be the worst thing about it. We have so many choices these days—which is great—but if you don’t know what you’re looking for, you can easily get overwhelmed by the plethora of choices you have in front of you.

 Sunrises are a great time to look back and reflect on everything around you. • This is part of my ongoing #TorontoSunriseSeriesByTaku • • • #pixeltheplanet #sunrise_sunsets_aroundworld #sunrise_and_sunsets #sunriselovers #SeeTorontoNow #DiscoverON #DiscoverOntario #ExploreCanada #TheLast6 #TorontoClx #Heatercentral #TotesCanadian #VisualsOfLife #artofvisuals #theOutbound #hypetoronto #canadiancollective #narcity_toronto #6tour #cbviews #exploretocreate #blogto #narcitycanada #torontopfr #nikonca  Somewhere high in the Japanese alps, I came across the thundering sound of this waterfall, which, combined with the rain, made it an even more surreal experience. Needless to say, I got wet. And so did my camera. Happy waterfall Wednesday to you all! . #MoodyGrams #visitjapan #exklusive_shot #folkcreative #peoplescreatives #bestmountainartists #instagramjapan #japanfocus #japantrip #artofvisuals #icu_japan #igersjp #tokyocameraclub #team_jp #agameoftones #ig_masterpiece #neverstopexploring #mwjp #team_jp_ #naturediversity #waterfallsfordays #waterfallwednesday #enroutemag
 It’s mid-October and I was outside in a t-shirt for a photo shoot this morning. This warm weather is great for us, but not so great for the fall colours. I doubt we will see any vibrant colours this year as the leaves have started falling already. . Which would you rather have? Warm weather of brilliant fall colours? . #instanaturelover #macro_freak #top_macro #fingerprintofgod #igglobalclubmacro #flowersandmacro #macroworld #macro_secrets #macro_brilliance #macromood #macroshot #macrolove #macro_highlight #majestic_macros #vzcomacro #macro_spotlight #nikonphotography #nikonca #nikon_photography #rsa_nature #kings_flora #tgif_nature #nature_sultans #floralfix #ptk_flowers #floral_secrets #splendid_flowers #ip_blossoms  I’ve received a lot of questions over the past while about my photos and #TorontoSunriseSeriesByTaku, so I thought it would be nice to answer some of them here for everyone else who may be wondering about the same thing. If you have a burning desire to know what I do with my photography, feel free to DM me and I may answer them here on a future post. Q&A: Do you ever do sky replacements in your photos? A: No. 100% of my photos in my sunrise series are natural skies and clouds that were there that morning. I always strive to showcase the moment as I saw and felt it. If the morning lacked colours, then too bad, it may just not make it into my series. But for vibrant mornings like the above, these are always real moments. • See the rest of my ongoing #TorontoSunriseSeriesByTaku • • • #sunrise_sunsets_aroundworld #sunrise_and_sunsets #sunriselovers #SeeTorontoNow #DiscoverON #DiscoverOntario #ExploreCanada #TheLast6 #TorontoClx #Heatercentral #TotesCanadian #VisualsOfLife #artofvisuals #illgrammers #canadiancollective #narcity_toronto #6tour #cbviews #exploretocreate #blogto #sunriseto #narcitycanada #torontopfr #nikonca
