Hello from Vancouver, Canada


I am an artist living in Vancouver. I own a Pentax K-1 after a 25 year camera break since I owned a K1000. I bought the camera and a 43mm lens for documentation in my studio of temporary sculptures and printing at large sizes. I am not a great photographer but getting better all the time given the mundane subject matter. I have joined the forums in the hope of getting some equipment and technique advice for studio photography of objects.

Welcome to the forum, I’m fairly sure you’ll find the information you seek here, it not just ask.

Welcome aboard. I spent a lot of time in Vancouver from 1999 to 2007. I used to work for a company based there and did a lot of training in Burnaby. Big fan of Stanley Park and drove up Mt. Seymore for some a bit of hiking. Beautiful area.

Welcome to Pentax Forums. I too have a Pentax K-1000, along with my other Pentax cameras.

Happy shooting!
