As many may already know, my work in film and photography has always been as much a part of the creative process as my writing.

The gallery is a collection of recent monochrome images, as I make the often-challenging transition from film to digital, and from landscape to cityscape or urban landscape photography. I invite you along.

 

It’s a journey through light and dark and those small quiet places in-between. Both the array of light and the images in Toronto can be surprising, and often spectacular. With digital technology, I’m appreciating that I needn’t travel far in order to capture the light, if only for fleeting moments at a time.

 All the images are available for purchase as fine art archival pigment prints of various sizes and editions.

 

FINE ART GALLERY II

k.g. Sambrano photography GO Wall

GO Station wall

Toronto, Ontario 2017

Perhaps it was simply the news of the day—the separation of families at America’s southern border that brought new meaning to this photo. Perhaps to all walls that we build, real or otherwise.

Standing erect, this partition is hardly noticeable in its crevice before the GO station at Dundas West station in the west end of Toronto. Previous attempts to capture this wall had been unsuccessful as it stretched the efficacy of my “point and shoot” camera. The bend of the wall at its far right is a flaw that is normally corrected by the use of image editing software such as Adobe Lightroom.

Note to self: I’m no longer in Kansas, as each day I travel farther and farther from my home.

This is my first fine art photo taken with my new 36 megapixel camera, Sony’s A7R, a full-frame mirror-less camera. When compared to my previous camera (Gallery One) you’ll note the increased sharpness, as well as the increased tonal range, in part due to the camera’s ability to retain more information. The result is a transition from my usual high contrast dramatic work to an attempt to capture more subtly and details.

This photo took a great deal of thought due to the richness of the image and the various competing elements, all extremely strong. Presently, I’m more comfortable with subjects at a distance. This is one of my rare shots with foreground, adding an entirely new challenge to the process. Eventually, I chose the angle that showcased the foreground rather than the architecture, an unusual choice for me.

If my photo includes a sky, that is where I usually begin my post-production, and everything else will key-off of that. The technique used in this photo, was that of darkening and lowering the contrast of the image, so when I dodge the photo,  a natural glow is created. Increasing the contrast again is my final step.

Queen Street E. and Power Street, Facade

Toronto, Ontario 2018

While Toronto has traditionally been represented by photos of the CN Tower, the Rogers Centre, and the Toronto skyline, I am always looking for Toronto in “those small quiet places” I have stumbled across. I sometimes can’t help but think of Gulliver and his travels.

 

This century-old Basilica church is located in downtown Toronto. The brick is a yellow colour that when converted to black and white, creates a rich tonal expression different from that of traditional concrete. A departure from my usual dramatic work, the change was relaxing and yet challenging. The age of the structure also encouraged a touch of Sepia toning or brown to the image, again, in keeping with the overall subject matter.

Toronto, Ontario 2018

Perhaps the secret to photographing such a well-known city as Toronto, is the capturing of what is not normally noticed—lines: sightlines, vertical and horizontal lines that draw those delicate crosses of light amidst the urban landscape.

 

6:27 pm at Queen and Yonge, still rush hour like that of any large city. I enjoy framing the little “chunks and pieces” of the downtown core which most believe to be flat or grey. But it’s not. Toronto is so full of light on so many different levels and intensities that it is sometimes easier to recognize than to explain. Looking up I saw this woman. I was drawn to her complexion and the sheen of her skin. Her glasses were a brilliant contrast.

 

Post-production included dodging and burning in order to reveal the scene’s highlights, and in this case, the sheer glow of the image in terms of light and lines. I used the gradient filter in Lightroom to produce the darkened edges, particularly from the right.

The Russian film pioneer Sergei Eisenstein demonstrated that a film could be edited in a variety of ways, to illicit various emotional responses. Photography is no different. This is the third and final of what can be called a variation on a theme. Each photo produced slightly differently—in many ways the same subject matter or elements, but my having shifted the accent or focus point in each photo. This approach is repeatedly demonstrated in film through the “director’s cut”, and musically through interpretation by artists such as a Glenn Gould.

One reason I enjoy this photo is because it returns me to my film days studying Alfred Hitchcock and Brian DePalma, both directors popular for their use of the canted or “Dutch” angle. 

I was on my way to Osgoode Hall, as the building that houses Ontario’s law society is also a marvel of architecture. That Saturday morning I emerged from the subway noting the sky (as usual) followed by the angel and the building in the background. I rushed the shot not knowing it was to be the only usable photo for the day. Some 20 minutes later, I stood before the façade of Osgoode Hall with a dead camera battery. No spare. No charger. My second attempted photo shoot that day ended much the same when after having recharged my battery, I ventured out only to realize I had forgotten to replace the SD card after transferring this photo to my computer. Digital growing pains.


I am always fond of subjects with lines, and especially concrete which I find to be so malleable in post-production. This photo was extremely tedious as I attempted to balance the elements of the frame with the various highlights and shadows.

Toronto, Ontario 2018

The Law Society of Ontario (previously the Law Society of Upper Canada) was founded in 1797, and is housed in Osgoode Hall, part of a 6-acre lot in downtown Toronto.  Often overlooked, its architecture as well as stature is far reaching as it is home to some of the highest courts of the province of Ontario.

Short on time as my camera battery was dying, I had visited the building the day before and was captivated by both its interior and its exterior—the fine stone, the ornamental crowns, and perhaps the feeling that I was not simply attempting to capture a photograph, but an ideal. 

I used a 24mm hence the distortion. With an upgraded version of Lightroom I would have been able to eliminate most of the converging lines. I do my best to shoot in the morning or on overcast days in order that I may control the light through techniques such as dodging and burning.

El Pueblo, "The Village"

Toronto, Ontario 2018

Having “hustled” a Friday afternoon off in midsummer, I headed to Toronto’s east end beaches. Still hours before sunset, I wandered through the neighbourhood before reaching this building, El Pueblo. “The Village” as it is called may be one of the greatest of secrets hidden in Toronto’s vast vault of architectural surprises.  No different from entering Shangri-La itself, one enters through a concrete archway, and steps into another world. 

A very straightforward photograph, I imagined a Mexican village during siesta, and focused on the symmetry of these Toronto townhouses.

Kew Beach,

Toronto, Ontario 2018

I sat on a bench before the boardwalk waiting for the sun to set. Magnificent things can happen at anytime in nature. I tend to focus on the sky in my photos as the sky has always been my greatest challenge, and when captured well, my greatest reward.

The space between the people strolling, running, and cycling was filled with sky as it continued to amass clouds on the horizon. This composition is unusual for me as I’ve included a generous amount of foreground (perfectly proportioned to the rule of thirds). Through my viewfinder I could see how the dark lines created by gaps in the planks appeared to converge. Admittedly, I had no idea of the potential of this image until much later that night while tinkering in Photoshop. The next morning with only 5 hours sleep, I woke up at 5:00 am, and headed to my next location, the Art Gallery of Ontario.

Kew Beach Fire Station 

Toronto, Ontario 2018

The east end of Toronto, known as the beaches, is magical. Upon disembarking from the streetcar, one notices the cool breeze from Lake Ontario. Time has slowed down in this enclave, boasting now famous Toronto landmarks such as the Fox Theatre and the “Goof” restaurant. Built originally in 1905, this fire station continues to serve the residents of Toronto.

 

Night was falling quicker than expected. I thought I was finished for the day, but passing the station, I looked up. As the darkness settled in, there was the clanging of the streetcar behind me, and the winding down of the city as people began to fill the many outdoor patios and cafés.

Due to the competing elements in the frame, (the sign on the left and tower on the right) it was difficult to find the composition for the photo. As I stumbled about, (watching my camera battery drain!) a pinstripe of neon appeared on the building as the fire station’s lights flickered on. I couldn’t have wished for a better accent to the photo. This was the last photo before my battery went “kaput”.

In 1983 Bob Scott of Ryerson University warned my class of the digital age, but I had no idea what was in store. Saying good-bye to film is still difficult for me. Film was a superior instructor—teaching me the patience needed to find and capture the shot, while the years of darkroom work with chemicals and paper helped me to foster a tonal sense, light and dark.

Up by 5:00 am on this Saturday morning, I waited impatiently for the subway to transport me downtown. It was a morning with the perfect pitch of blue sky and white strands of cloud. In post-production I usually try to identify a specific light source or at very least, a direction from which the light might emanate. In reality, the light was omni-directional, but deliberately exaggerated here to produce the effect of light striking the building. The Toronto born architect, Frank Gehry, is also famous for designing the Walt Disney Concert Hall. This single image reminded me of the "attitude of gratitude" that I foster in regard to writing a word, creating an image, taking a breath, seeing light.

"While You Were Sleeping II"

Toronto, Ontario 2018

In film school, I learned about French “New Wave” filmmakers like Godard and Marker, who seemed to play with film the same as a cat might play with yarn. Godard especially, who appeared to move instinctively through the technology. His early works were in black and white. It seemed that in his films, there was always someone smoking.

The Art Gallery of Ontario is as difficult to shoot as it is beautiful. Located in downtown Toronto, it is visually “wedged” between the tall buildings of University Avenue and the streetcar lines and signage of Chinatown—in short, no clear or unobstructed view to capture the sheer girth and complexity of the structure. In such cases, I move towards the abstract.

As I was learning Lightroom, I simply tinkered to see where it took me. Although my photos are mostly pre-visualized, in postproduction it’s very much the opposite. I sometimes like to "zig and zag" throwing my bag of visual tricks into the wind to see where it may land. Afterwards, I perform my fine-tuning. Only now do I think of Godard.

My friend’s father drove a public transit bus for most of his life. As a teenager, he would tell me stories of Toronto in the early days. I’m sure buses ran along this stretch of University Avenue before the existing subway. A man ahead of his time, he took early retirement in order to care for his new grandson. That was when my friend’s father, also an amateur military historian, assembled all of his model planes and tanks, and placed them in a trunk.

This is the final photo for the day as the once perfect blue sky faded away. I took more shots than usual of this monument. The added technical challenge was to capture the dark statues as well as the texture in the sky and the clouds. I  zoomed in as I strived to create a sense of drama, and I literally wanted to show the whites of the eyes. In postproduction, I worked on each statue extensively to accentuate its elements.

In landscape photography there is seldom an advantage to venturing into the rain, as beautiful as it may be. The city is a different kind of landscape as the rain offers reflections and added character. The city also offers artificial lighting. The two can create a pleasing visual composite.

It was a Sunday morning as the rain drizzled over me. Covering my camera with a plastic bag, I continued my walk through Toronto's downtown core until I came upon these stone gates. I took shelter beneath the awning on the other side of the street while I focused on the building at the end of the gauntlet of streetlamps.

The Junction

Balance and Light, 7:14 pm

Toronto, Ontario 2018, 

Photographers, by the very nature of the art form, are light watchers—keeping vigil over the sky, and tracking time itself. We recognize the summer solstice and note the slow, deliberate shortening of the days. As much as I enjoy  traditional landscape photography, there is something particularly unique about a sunset in the city, and how light balances so eloquently across human-made objects.

 

This is my very first photograph using the manual exposure setting on my Sony a7r. Like most in-camera meters, the exposures were inaccurate, specifically in regard to rendering the sky. For this image, I underexposed the sky about one f/stop less than what my meter recommended in order to capture the details in the sky, and the clouds. In my film days, I used a spot meter to literally take readings of the sky and the clouds on which to base my exposures.

Charles Chaplin’s social commentary film, Modern Times, is now a footnote in history as the new industrial revolution is quite simply the digital era.

 

It was quiet, actually quite tranquil while I positioned my camera, and adjusted for the crimson rust that covered this brick machine. Behind me, two women spoke of running a marathon. Adults and children wandered about fascinated by this Goliath of history, preserved at the Evergreen Brick Works.

The symbiotic relationship between humans and machines date back to the wheel's first laborious invention—testimony that humans lunge forward no matter the time period, no matter the circumstance. If we do not find a technology, then we have the capacity to forge one.

My first colour fine print since 1984. After completing the black and white version of this image, I returned to tinker with the original file, in essence second-guessing myself in regard to exposure settings. The original file, although drastically  underexposed, had been recovered in Lightroom. As I double-checked my original process, I mused about what the image might look like in colour—voila! Although both images originate from the same file, you will note I’ve interpreted each image slightly differently, in keeping with the interpretive nature of the medium. A single photo may be processed in a number of ways, depending on subject matter and even personal mood.

 

I did not spend a great deal of time post-processing as I was clearly out of my bailiwick. For example, a monochrome print is really only comprised of 10 different shades of gray. Take a moment to think of the millions of possibilities of colour! No thank you. My entire wardrobe consists of black or white but for one blue suit and one blue shirt. That tells you a little about my approach to colour, and fashion.

 

Still, I do enjoy this photo as perhaps it reminds me of Pinocchio or any of those wonderful Technicolor films from Walt Disney that accounted for so much of my early childhood.

The Evergreen Brick Works seems an erratic in the northeast part of the city, away from the traffic and modern skyscrapers. Now a community environmental centre, history never really left this one-time brick works, and continues to be present throughout the structures. During peak production the 40-acre quarry produced as much as 25 million bricks in a single year, and was a refuge for indigent men who, during the Great Depression, slept in the kilns over the winter.

 

That afternoon, I may have been one of the few more interested  in the architecture and brick than the lush greenery and ponds of this recently transformed watershed.

By 9:00 pm, the financial district of town had thinned as I waited for the blue hour, the time before the sky turns dark above the city. Having taken some very promising daylight photos over the last few months, I now looked forward to shooting under artificial lights—fluorescent, incandescent, neon, whatever the city chose to share with me. Glass, steel, stone and light.

This marked my first shoot with my newly purchased Sony lens—finding it fairly sharp and lightweight. The 28-70mm zoom allows me to crop without having to “zoom in” with my feet. In spite of these pluses, I did eventually return the lens for the promise of an even sharper full frame lens, the Tamron 28-75MM F2.8 DI III RXD made exclusively for the Sony E-mount camera.

Toronto, Ontario 2018

I first photographed Toronto’s Eaton Centre in high school. The world had survived the bulk of the Cold War, just as Regan and Pope John Paul II had survived the assassination attempts on their lives earlier that year. On a sunny summer afternoon, I  walked through the newly built Eaton Centre with my rented Pentax K-1000 film camera. My time was spent photographing what was arguably one of the more beautiful architectural structures in downtown Toronto. The black and white photos returned as glossy 4 x 6 prints, mostly out of focus and blurred by camera shake.


I reappeared at the Eaton Centre some 36 years later, the mall all but empty at 8:30 am on a Saturday, and somewhat foreboding as the Eaton Centre is one of Toronto’s busiest malls. I enjoyed the calm, recognizing something that I had first noticed years ago—the natural light of the mall, that I had never seen this early in the morning.

Light is the principle person in the picture,” the Impressionist painter Monet once remarked. Many attribute his unique style to the cataracts that threatened his eyesight, his brush strokes becoming thicker and thicker as the disease progressed. For Monet, each jotted brush stroke became a revealing emotion, a visual impression of light over detail.

 

The thick red hash marks decorating the plate glass caught my attention as I passed this storefront on St. Thomas street. With my “point and shoot" in one hand, I took three quick photos while my other hand clutched my brief case. The final image, a detail of the chrome and glass, emerged the best of the three snapshots as I attempted to capture both the spontaneity of the moment and the light.

Humber Bay Arch Bridge

The allure of urban landscape can sometimes be the capturing of patterns and forms not usually associated with traditional landscapes. That is what attracted me to this crowded footbridge during the Labour Day weekend. Built across the Humber River in Toronto’s west end, Humber Bay Arch Bridge is a majestic illustration of accessible art used by the thousands who walk, run, jog, cycle, and skateboard beneath its arches daily.

 

Often my ideal shooting conditions are blue sky with white clouds. I expose for the sky, reminiscent of the film adage, "expose for the highlights, develop for the shadows".

 

Recently I had produced a series of higher contrast images, and was still frustrated by the disappointing shoot the previous day that promised even more high contrast. In post-production, where normally I would spend my time dodging and burning, instead I concentrated on the texture of the light and the subtle detail in the shadow areas. I toned down the clouds as their full luminescence would have diminished the softer tones of the bridge, and added to the contrast of the image. I enjoy this  photo for many reasons, one of which is the full array of tonal ranges from deep blacks to rich whites.

Humber Bay Bridge

Humber Bay Arch Bridge (Vertical)

Toronto, Ontario 2018

In the beginning, bridges were as simple as a fallen tree crudely dragged into a favourable position to help traverse a river or a gully. We may even contemplate a now submerged land bridge that once allowed our ancestors to venture and explore that which otherwise, to the detriment of our species, would have remained undiscovered. During times of war, a bridge’s function would often change—becoming both a means of advancing one’s military, as well as a near impenetrable wall to be defended or upon retreat, destroyed.

Standing beneath the twin arches of the the Humber Bay Arch Bridge, the theme of the day was one of movement and joy as rollerbladers, runners, and pedestrians teemed about. The bridge has become an extension of the community since the bridge's completion in 1994. Each day, thousands cross the structure—in its simplest form, a steel and concrete plank connecting two points, in reality, a gateway connecting would-be strangers.
