A Day of Chimping

I once again, fell of the face of earth. This time was due to being sick. All I wanted to do was crawl under a rock and sleep for a decade or so. In fact, I still want to crawl under a rock and sleep for a few weeks, but I’m definitely on the mend.

If you’ve been a long time reader of this little bloggy of mine, you’ll know that I’ve been working for a company called Chimpsy, we teach people how to better utilize their cameras, as well as offer a ton of other services that will be announced by the end of the year.

One of the new and exciting things we are working on is an Aspiring Pro Workshop. Our first 6 hour class took place last weekend, on Sunday, and it was a blast. We had a great group of students, a fantastic day and an awesome instructor. I got to tag along and took the opportunity to learn a thing or two… or three.

I wanted to share a few of the shots I took from Sunday, that really make me admire the field of photography, and really reaffirm my desire to create more with my camera. NOT to mention that these photos are definitely going into the file “proof that Zara needs a new DSLR.”

Mark 1

This is Mark Cafiero, he’s one of the founders of Chimpsy, as well as the lead instructor.  Reflection

Rail on Market

Water dropplets at balcony Black and white bridge

This may be my favorite shot of the day. A bridge in Downtown Denver crossing over Cherry Creek river. I also love how the black and white turned out.

Old Bricks

I love old brick buildings. I love anything brick really. This is a small piece of the brick building that houses the Chimpsy Market Street studio, and where most of the Denver classes meet. The colors are beautiful, the lighting was perfect (no flash) and the bricks have a story to tell.

Every single one of these shots was taken with a Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens on a Canon Rebel XS (not a full frame camera). NO flash, all natural light. Also, all photos have been photoshoped and adjusted for contrast, saturation, and a few other tweeks here and there.

Which one’s your favorite? I need to go on more outings with my DSLR.


  1. LOVE the reflection one!

  2. Yay glad you're back! Hope you feel better soon.great pictures! Inspiring for sure

  3. LOVE them!! I really love the reflection of the building in the puddle.

  4. I like the black and white bridge one. So pretty. But then they're all amazing.


  5. I love all of the photos, the puddle reflection and b&w bridge standing out for me. I still haven't done anything with mine... such a Photoshop backlog it's not funny at all...

  6. Beautiful pics!! Wish I had your photographic talent!!
