Pentax 6×7

I recently got my hands on a new medium format film Pentax 6×7 kit. Well new to me, as they stoped making this model of the camera in 1989. However, the kit I got is in such perfect condition you could easily mistake it for a brand new camera. I have been wanting one of …

Fun Bridge

I love this little bridge! Even though it’s rather short, it is so fun to ride your bike over. The setting around the bridge also helps as the ambiance is near perfect. If your coming from downtown you have to ride through a tunnel first. Once your up on the bridge you are greeted with …

Kelowna Summer Heat

It’s been hot days in Kelowna lately. I’m not complaining though because at least when it’s nice and sunny outside it kind of draws you out, at least it does for me. When it’s super nice I want to be out there doing stuff. However, once the heat starts hitting that 30C/90F mark your options …

The Lights at Night

I shot a photo from this exact spot a couple weeks ago (see that picture here). At the time I didn’t have any longer lenses with me and I thought I’d like to get a shot zoomed in a little closer to this building. All the lights on he building look so nice at night …

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 …

Good Night Kelowna

This is a view of Ellis Street downtown in Kelowna. I had the idea for this picture when I was driving down this street one day. When I was thinking about this photo I pictured a lot more apartment lights on. I guess most people were already asleep or they were out? Either way the …

Test Shot

This was just a test shot I took the other night. I’m thinking I will use this location for a portrait shoot. I think it’d be cool to have someone leaning on that railing on the right side the frame. With a person there I’d change up the composition a little, but it would be …

Waiting

I wanted to take a picture like this, but I didn’t have the location. I knew I wanted some lights in the background and I needed some kind of street light to hit me in the front. I drove and walked around Kelowna for about 2 hours before I found this spot. I tried a …

The Sails in Kelowna

This awesome public art piece in the middle of the photo is called “The Sails”. I’m not 100% if that’s the official name, but that’s what I’ve heard it been called. I think it’s a wonderful piece in a perfect spot downtown in Kelowna. I nearly didn’t share this photo because I though it would …

West Kelowna View

With a little effort you can get to these amazing views around here in Kelowna, British Columbia. This was a nice hike up a mountain in West Kelowna and there was plenty to see from up there. I shot a bunch of photos but the landscape is a little dull at the moment and I …

Dark Night Juneau

My wife and I took Juneau for a little walk the other night along this boardwalk near our house. I spotted this little ledge under this light and thought it’d be a good spot for a picture. As you can see it was a really dark night! I think the picture works though because Juneau …

Cafe Corner

I had this shot sitting on my computer and figured I might as well just post it. Not much to tell here, just my local coffee shop on the corner. Good spot though, check it out if your in the neighbourhood. Camera: Sony a7R & Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 ii Thanks for stopping by, Rob

My Favourite Camera

This has been my favourite camera now for many years! I have and have had technically “better” cameras, but for whatever reason, I still use this one more than any other. It is the Sony a7R original. It’s a 36 megapixel camera with 14.1 stops of dynamic range and for me that is just perfect. …
