Waiting in Gastown


A photograph made in Gastown in Vancouver, British Columbia.  The restaurant is the Water St. Cafe and I love how the subject of the image, the waiter, is separated from the street scene by these large panes .  I photographed this image a couple of years ago with my old Canon XT and converted it into black and white immediately back then. I had not looked at it much since then but it was stored in one of the image portfolios on my phone. This afternoon I was playing with an app (TiltShift) on my iPhone which applies tilt and shift effects to any accessible image.  So, with adjustment of the point of focus and then selecting the amount of blur, I came up with a new version of this archived photo that I quite like.

  4. Gastown is a great place to people-watch, and this is a awesome shot! This is shot with your iphone? Man, cell-photography is really making a big entrance!

    • Hi Tracy,

      I used a Canon XT dSLR to make the original image. The photo was in a gallery on my phone and I used the TiltShift app to do a final adjustment to the image.

      Some people are doing cool things with their camera phones. I still prefer carrying an SLR and using my phone for almost everything else.

      Cheers,

      Chris
