Bangkok Bikers

Posted in Photography by sanchovi on 28/06/2010

The first thing I noticed in Bangkok was the abundance of scooters. I took 5 minutes out of my day, a Pentax K1ooo and a Tamron 200mm  lens to get the following results.

This photo was taken in East Vancouver. I like the result that a film camera and aged design deliver. If I didn’t know any better, I could swear that this picture was taken in the 1960’s or 70’s.

Kelowna

Posted in Photography by sanchovi on 25/06/2010

A few weeks ago I went on a road trip to Kelowna with my mate Steve and his fiance. There was a big (5 teams) annual Aussie Rules tournament up there. Here’s a few shots I took with my Pentax K1000.

The sun came out for the day and I even managed to get sunburnt. Check out the camouflaged houses on the hill in the background.

Got another roll back. It’s kind of like buying a packet of basketball cards. You get some duds, but you also get some gems.

Bird of prey

Posted in Photography by sanchovi on 07/01/2010

This is my mate shain. He’s a great bloke I’ve known for over a decade but had lost contact after I moved away from where we grew up . We have recently made contact again and we both discovered we were quite keen on photography. You can view his Flickr account HERE.

As you can see, most of his photos are of birds. I think they’re great but didn’t fully appreciate them until I tried shooting birds myself. Damn it’s hard! Other than keeping up with the quick little buggers, you have to have a nice depth of field and hold them in frame AND in focus. Then after you get home you have to find out what type of bird you have a photo of.
My hat goes off to you mate. You take some great photos. You’ve also taught me a heap about photography without even knowing.

Here’s my atempt at bird photography. I picked a species that was easy to identify and easy to track. It’s a kookaburra that was in my dad’s backyard in Queensland.
