Missing photos

These are the two photos from the video I posted yesterday. When I went out to shoot these photos I was expecting to shoot 6 photos, but for some reason my camera started rewinding the film at 20 frames so I only got two shots off. I’ll have to figure out what the problem is, …

If you watched the first part of my film photography with Juneau video you’ll want to watch this one. If you haven’t seen the first part, I’ll post that video bellow part 2 here. 🙂 ~ Both videos filmed with a Sony ZV-1 Thanks for watching, Rob

Blaylock’s Gate

I shot these photos at Blaylock’s mansion in Nelson, British Columbia. I’ve driven by this mansion loads of times and every time I drive by I try to get a good look. It’s such an amazing looking house on the outside and I often wonder what it’s like inside. I know whoever owns the house …

What does it take to scratch a lens?

Ever wonder just how much abuse a camera lens can take before scratches will start to show up? I use UV filters, mainly for protection and I was wondering this exact question so I decided to put a lens to the test. I tried “cleaning” the lens with a few different things. I shook the …

Lots of Water

Well there doesn’t seem to be any shortage or whatever around here. I honestly don’t know what the story is with this water coming up out of the ground at the park by my house. I thought it was an odd scene and worth a picture. As for the other picture, well I just shot …

Minolta 50mm 1.2 vs Pentax 55mm 1.8

I have been shooting with my Minolta 50mm f/1.2 for a long time now. I have always known the short comings of the lens and had accepted the trade offs (like lack of sharpness wide open) for the f/1.2 speed. I have also had my Pentax 55mm f/1.8 for a long time, but haven’t shot …

Okanagan Centre

Over the weekend my family and I took a little drive out to Lake Country, a town about 20 minutes north of Kelowna. We found our selves in the neighbourhood of Okangan Centre were we were taking our dog for a little walk. I ended up wondering off on my own for a bit as …

End of the Sunset

Last night my wife was doing yoga, my kids were playing video games and my dog was laying around like a sac of potatoes. Since non of the above seamed very appealing to me I figured I’d grab Juneau and take her for a little stroll around the neighbourhood. A dog needs to walk after …

Shoe Near By

After I shot the sunset photo out my window the other day I wanted to get another shot, but I knew I have very limited amount of time before the sunset light was gone. I quickly looked around at whatever was in the room I was in. I spotted this pair of shoes and just …

Sunset from the House

We had a lot of things going on around the house last night. As life was happening I couldn’t help but notice the beautiful sunset going down out in front of our house. Since the sunset was already in full swing I knew wouldn’t have enough time to get any where good to shoot more …

What’s Your Name?

I shoot real estate photos from time to time and when I was living in Calgary I shot a lot of real estate photos. As you can image I have met my fair share of random cats and dogs. This cat in particular was quite striking to me and I couldn’t help but shoot a …

Sunset End

I just caught the end of this sunset a few days ago on my way home from work. While I was driving I could see the amazing light shining on the buildings downtown. Unfortunately the traffic was moving slower than I would have liked and I wasn’t in a good area for a  decent shot. …

Kodak Shannon

I shot some photos with my Instagram friend Shannon a few weeks ago and just go the film back last week. I sent the film to a place in Winnipeg Manitoba (more on the place another time) because there is no professional place in Calgary to get film developed. Anyhow, I was shooting Kodak Ektar …
