So between G20, THE Earthquake, birthdays, BBQs, and Theo+Debbie’s Wedding – June was a hectic month! Once again I tried to capture every moment in pictures, except the earthquake – I was too busy freakin’ out (I’m still a little shaken)! Theo and Debbie’s wedding was just so grand it needed its own post here.
This kid (Komal) is scared of me like I’m the boogie man or something… she’ll put the sirens on when I come around and grab her parents until I walk away. She’s the only kid to ever act like this. This time, we were playing outside in the backyard at my Uncle’s Birthday party and she started to warm up to me. I guess the camera helped. She has beautiful eyes – and she’s finally not crying or running away for me to get this image.
This is that monster Gurshaan – the bully on the block – he’s not to be messed with.
“The Man” – Kulraj is my old friend – we’ve been buddies for his whole life!
I love how mischievous these kids look… you know their up to no good!

All images above shot with Canon 5D Mark II w/ 24-70mm f2.8L
Around the House
Once in a while I like to put the new portrait lens (85mm 1.8) on the 5D Mark II and shoot stuff around the house. Diya dropped by with her new scooter and it was time to try it out.
I love the buttery images it produces! The sharpness and blur that you get with this combo is phenomenal.
“They see me rollin’” – This has to be all time favourite image and expression of Diya – she so crazy!
This Camera/Lens combo is difficult to use. It’s a huge challenge but the results are worth it. The depth of field is so thin you can lose focus of your subject instantly – especially when its kids on bikes. One of these days I’m going to do my own nerdified review on some of my gear. Watch out for it!
