TRAVEL | CAMERA & TECH GEAR

Everyone wants to capture picturesque moments on vacation and I’m not any different. I want to be able to capture candid moments, grand scenes and textural details that can take me back to any memories of a trip, to evoke the feelings I had in that moment and to share it with others back home. As I’m packing for my trip to Hawaii, I thought I would share with you guys how I pack and take care of my camera equipment.

Shooting equipment wise, I like to take photos primarily with a DSLR. I find it gives you the most versatility with different lens options and a more professional outcome. For more action packed items I like to use my GoPro as it’s more compact and can take on water and impact better than a heavy DSLR camera. For video purposes, I will usually shoot with my phone primarily, but I will also use my GoPro and DSLR to supplement footage, it really depends on what I have on hand in the moment. As it has been said before, the best camera is the one you have on you. All three yield different ย footage quality but it’s good to have similar settings across the board to get smoother transitions.

If you want to know what I have in my camera bag, keep on reading!

WANDER | Montreal Guide #1

Mont Royal Lookout Point

Having moved to Montreal recently for a footwear design internship, its been quite the change from comfortable and homey Ottawa. I secured a place downtown, right off of St. Catherine-Ouest and the ever bustling city is filled with chatter and car noises.

Over the past few weeks the sound of french has become comforting and is bringing back the many hours spent in french immersion during high school, which I still firmly believe I did not learn anything in regards to being bilingual (though I have a certificate that says otherwise). Everything is so new, not knowing anyone in the city but thankfully I have some amazing friends who visit me from Ottawa and over the long weekend we got up to a lot of shenanigans exploring the city together. Never have I walked so much, biked until the pain of the potholes still linger and eat such delicious food.

Travel | Japan 2014 – VLOGs

Pikachu at Tokyo Tower

Wow! I can’t believe I haven’t posted in so long. Very sorry about that!

A lot has changed in the past little while and I’ve sadly neglected this blog but here’s a bit of an update. I completed my 15-month internship and moved back home at the end of last month and then jetted off to Japan with my Dad for two weeks immersing ourselves in the Japanese culture. I have yet to finish going through all my photos but while on the trip I managed to take some video footage on my phone. I’ve upload Part 1 & Part 2 onto my YouTube Channel; Part 3 is on its way!
We started off in Tokyo, took a day trip to Mt. Fuji; spent some time at Nachi Falls in Kii-Katsuura and got stuck there for two days thanks to a typhoon. Made our way to Osaka and Kyoto before returning home ๐Ÿ™‚
I had a lot of fun on the trip and would definitely recommend anyone who is an adventurous eater to give it a go! I will be posting a mini travel guide of Japan along with photos soon so keep your eyes peeled for that ๐Ÿ™‚
