Box Speed vs Overexposure

I wanted to see how much of a difference there was when overexposing Kodak Gold 200 35mm film. So I made a video out of it. I was testing the difference between shooting at box speed (ISO 200) and ISO 100. The camera I was using in the video is a Canon EOS 3 & …

Snow up There

Most of the snow around the city of Kelowna has melted. But if you head up into the mountain there still plenty of the white stuff up there. This view gives you a pretty clear picture of what that look like 🙂 Camera: Panasonic Lumix L100 Thanks for stopping by, Rob

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, …

Waiting by the Library

My son Joshua had a hockey game at one of the downtown arenas here in Kelowna this past weekend. No one is allowed to watch the games because of obvious reasons, so I while I was waiting I decide to go shoot a few photos. The arena he was playing at was on the other …

Going to The Sun Road

I shot this photo a while back when my family and I were driving on the on the “Going to the sun road” in Glacier National Park in Montana. I wasn’t expecting much for the drive but I was pleasantly surprised by how beautiful it was. Now that I’m back in living in British Columbia, …

Pictures of Strangers (video)

When I was in Calgary in September I wondered around the city taking pictures of strangers. I wanted to shoot some photos of people with my Pentax 6×7 medium format film camera, but I didn’t have any models. I figured I might as well just go walk up to people on the street ask them …

Upside Down

I have no idea what’s going on with this tiny upside down sculpture or whatever it is. I do like it though, I think it’s pretty cool how how it seems to just be balancing there. This is right in middle of the East Village in Calgary. That is one think I like about Calgary, …

Moody Lake

Ok so this lake isn’t called Moody Lake. It’s just the Okanagan Lake here in Kelowna, but moment I shot this photo it there was a definite moody vibe in the air. It was a strange day, because only moments before this it was nice and sunny, but as the clouds moved over the sun …

Out with Juneau

My wife Michelle and I were at the park with Juneau yesterday. I had my camera so I figured I’d shoot a few photos of her since it’s been awhile. The last picture in this post is funny to me because I had her sitting on this cliff for a picture. I shot two quick …

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 …

Life in the East Village

There is a lot more life in the East Village of Calgary then there was a year ago. While I was living in Calgary there was always a decent amount of action in the neighbourhood, but it has got a lot more lively since I moved. A few new buildings finished up and some new …

A Little More Mexican

In the more touristy areas of Mexican vacation destination cities it can sometimes feel like your talking around in the US rather than Mexico. This I found especially true in Playa Del Carmen. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the United States, but when I’m in Mexico I like to feel like I’m in …
