Thursday afternoon, downtown walk.

Another nice summer like Autumn day, I’d finished my coffee and took a walk downtown. Rather than lugging a 30lb gadget bag, my afternoon walks I opt to carry a single fixed focal length prime lens. Today I grabbed my Pentax ☆istD, with my SMC Pentax-M 85mm f:2.0, 49mm Pentax circular polarizer.

About Darrell Larose

I am a highly motivated self confessed techno-geek. While rooted in traditional analog photography, I have embraced the new technologies in photography. I am just as comfortable under the dark cloth of a large-format view camera, as I am with a digital camera. I can produce award winning photographs within the darkroom, or from a digital-desktop. With 40 years of photography as a both hobby, and over 30 in the professional arena I have always produced. I am self-taught in the digital media, I have been a PhotoShop user since 1995 (version 2.5) I found the transition fairly seamless due to my long experience in labs. I have worked within various Government photo units, including the Forensic Photo Section of the RCMP, as well as various professional labs. I can easily converse with a police forensic photographer as I can with a wedding sports or commercial photographer. I have worked for several of Ottawa’s top photographers. I have worked at several pro labs. As well as many years in photo retail.
