Photography by John Reeve

  • Photographs of the Yukon. Photographs of other places from a Yukoner’s perspective.
  • Nature, landscapes, flora and fauna, close-ups, abstracts, impressionistic images, more...
  • Photography for the art of it. Photography for the joy of seeing.

“Creating photographs helps me to better see the world around me. It simplifies perception and focuses my mind’s eye to penetrate through the visual and mental clutter of everyday life. And sometimes peering through the viewfinder, removed from normal human perspective and context, I see wondrous visions that would never appear to me any other way. As such, my camera is an instrument of discovery and imagination.”

Autumn Renewal

After traveling past Sheep Mountain with my visiting friends, we continued up the Alaska Highway into Alaska and then turned off onto the Taylor Highway. This region is forested with generally stunted and spindly spruce. Forest fires in recent years have charred vast areas. But deciduous vegetation soon thrives in the open and ash-fertilized burn zones. In early September, it treated us to a fresh, magnificent tapestry of colour, contrasted against the stark, blackened tree skeletons. No smoke at this time, but fog was widely dispersed the day we passed through here and that is what softened the background in this image. Otherwise, the image was softened by my post-processing technique, in which I combined the photo with a blurred copy of itself. Many long time photographers will recognize this as comparable to an old in-camera film technique known as "Orton Imaging", or an alternate method that involves sandwiching transparencies. André Gallant calls the technique I used "digital dreamscapes". It can also be done the old way using a digital camera that has multi-exposure capability, and I have had some success trying that too. The effect is not identical amongst the different approaches. The great advantage of the post-processing method is that it can be applied to any digital image after the fact. I was inspired to do it in this case to emphasize the glorious, uplifting wash of colour over the landscape that represents the new life, whilst minimizing the distraction of the haphazard clutter of the new growth and de-empasizing the solemn starkness of the burnt trees.

Inuksuit on Top of the World

The Taylor Highway turns into the Top of the World Highway and crosses from Alaska into the Yukon on its way to our destination of Dawson City. The Top of the World Highway derives its name from the fact that it follows high ground, with frequent expansive views on both sides of the road. Just inside the Canadian border, where the elevation is particularly high, we noticed a white encrustation on one side of the sparse, little trees, which we came to realize was a heavy coating of solid ice. The air was cold enough that apparently it was condensing out of the misty atmosphere, continuously supplied by a stiff wind. We pulled off at the top of the hill and came upon this field full of inuksuit. (I only recently learned that this is the proper pluralization of inukshuk.) I processed this image with the same digital dreamscape technique I described for the preceding Feature Photo, Autumn Renewal, but I applied it much more subtly in this case and masked it out almost completely in parts of the foreground inukshuk. I feel that the effect supports the mystical quality of the scene. The smoothing and blending of the colour imparts a warm and gentle impression to the scene, which perhaps belies the bitterly chilling conditions, though the ice on the rocks reveals that truth.

October 30, 2016 - New Camera: Pentax K-1

This past summer I was tempted into purchasing Pentax's new K-1, their first full frame digital offering. I will admit, this was a bit of an extravagance. I was still very satisfied shooting with my K-5, even though it is now a 6 year old model. Back when I upgraded to the K-5, it abruptly made obsolete my previous, 3 year old K10D. The K-5's 16 megapixel Sony sensor was a quantum leap in sensor technology, a real game changer in terms of image quality, shooting flexibility, and malleability of the image files in post processing. It enabled me to make images that previously were not possible. Advances in the technology have been more incremental since then and, notwithstanding the inherent benefits of a larger sensor, I was not expecting the K-1 to provide that degree of superiority over the K-5. Indeed, after shooting with my new camera for a couple of months, I still regard the K-5 as a relevant and superb tool which I will not be reluctant to use as a secondary and backup camera. But the K-1 does offer real advantages, particularly in challenging photographic situations, and it also adds some useful features on top of the K-5's arsenal.

The K-1 is a well featured camera but, while not exactly cheap, it considerably undercuts the prices of comparable full frame competitors. That was a significant factor in my purchase decision, of course. It uses a version of the same 36 megapixel sensor found in the highly regarded Nikon D800/810 models as well as Sony's own A7R. It has all the useful, uniquely Pentax features that I am familiar with from my previous Pentax DSLR's and further expands upon them. Many of these features leverage the sensor shift image stabilization system, which Pentax apparently had to redesign from scratch to deal with the larger, heavier sensor. In spite of that challenge they managed to improve its effectiveness from

previous implementations, and they claim a 5 stop benefit. I have been impressed with its performance in my own use. While visiting Dawson City, I wandered around town in deep dusk, photographing the buildings at shutter speeds  3 stops slower than one would expect to deliver sharp handheld images without stabilization, and every one of my exposures was tack sharp even when viewed at the pixel level, which is a lot of magnification in a 36 mexapixel image.

A primary benefit one expects from a larger sensor is better low light and high ISO performance. This was a key motivation for me to get this camera, considering my love of northern lights and other night sky and general nighttime photography. The K-1's ISO performance does not disappoint; I estimate a 2 stop advantage compared to the K-5, which is no slouch in this regard. Look at the portrait of Neil Zeller, the presenter we brought up from Calgary to instruct the Whitehorse Photography Club's recent annual fall workshop. Lit by the glow of his laptop screen, I photographed him at ISO 6400. This is an Adobe Camera Raw conversion of the raw file with no adjustments except that I actually reduced the colour noise reduction amount to 10 from the Adobe default of 25; there is no luminance noise reduction. Click on the image to view a 100% (pixel level) crop. I am especially pleased by the fine grain of the noise. Mind you, I would apply a bit of luminance noise reduction as well as some sharpening for any purpose other than this example. Note also that this is a handheld 1/6 second exposure with a focal length of 105mm, demanding 4 stops of stabilization from the shake reduction system.

I was not expecting night sky images taken at ISO 6400 to satisfy me, and they do look a bit rough in subtle tonal transitions in the sky, though not necessarily any worse than ISO 1600 K-5 exposures. ISO 1100 has been my default starting point with the K-5 but when possible I try to use ISO 800 for cleaner output. With the K-1, I am leaning towards a default ISO of 1600 for this type of photography, which is sensitive enough for most situations and produces cleaner, smoother results than I could ever achieve with the K-5. It is nice to know that ISO6400 is usable if I have reason to go there.

The K-1 includes a built-in GPS, but that comes at the expense of no built-in flash. I use GPS more than flash anyway, so I can live with that, though I might occasionally miss being able to add fill flash to an exposure. I do have a couple of compatible external flashes but I am not inclined to routinely pack one when I would rarely use it. The GPS works in conjunction with sensor shift to provide "astrotracer" capability, a sort of limited substitute for an equatorial mount to track celestial objects as the earth rotates. This is not entirely a new feature and I have enjoyed playing with it using my K-5, which requires an external GPS module. See my  Orion Nebula   Feature Photo for an example.

A new feature that utilizes sensor shift is called "pixel shift resolution". In this mode, the camera makes 4 exposures while moving the sensor by one pixel for each exposure, and combining them such that each pixel in the composite image contains full RGB colour information. This is similar to the output of a Foveon sensor, characterized by higher apparent resolution (though the composite image still is 36 megapixels) and improved colour fidelity. I do not expect to use pixel shift very often, as use of a tripod is essential, any movement in the scene can cause problematic artifacts, and the RAW files are massive at about 150 megabytes. But for a special image that I might want to print large, even compared to the superb standard output of the K-1 the improvement with pixel shift is noticeable. The Tombstone Valley image below was made with pixel shift resolution. It may not provide a meaningful benefit for a web image, but click on the photo to see a split 100% crop that compares this image with a non pixel shift version I exposed immediately afterwards with otherwise identical settings and processed identically.

I bought one new lens with the K-1, the new Pentax HD D FA 28-105mm f/3.5-5.6 ED DC WR. The variable aperture is rather slow and I would have liked a bit more focal length range at the wide end, but the image quality is excellent with consistently high corner to corner sharpness. I also like that it is fairly small and light, it is weather sealed, and it cost considerably less than the alternative Pentax offering of a rebranded Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 which often is criticized for poor corner sharpness and vignetting. I do have a number of excellent, fast, full frame prime lenses spread through this focal length range, and they all will certainly see use on my K-1, but the practicality of a standard zoom lens for general photography compelled me to get this lens. My other modern wide to normal zoom lenses are designed for APS-C format and their image circles generally don't come close to covering the full frame sensor.

The SMC Pentax DA* 60-250mm f/4, one of my favourite lenses, also is specified as an APS-C optic. But apparently it was originally designed for full frame and only the addition of a baffle inside the rear mount impinges on its full frame coverage. I removed the baffle, following a fairly simple and well documented procedure. The modified lens works wonderfully on the K-1 and I have not been able to discern any detrimental effects from the modification. It has always been a bit susceptible to flare when shooting into intense light but this does not seem any worse with the baffle removed. I love this focal length range, perhaps even more on the full frame camera where the wider coverage keeps me shooting longer around the 60mm end when I would have to change lenses on an APS-C camera. In fact, I believe this has been my most used lens on the K-1 to date.

My Sigma 150-500mm f/5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM is a full frame lens. However, on this and some other of their lens models, Sigma deviated from the Pentax K mount standard with a larger diameter flange, and this interferes with the K-1 body above the mount area. To Sigma's credit, they have offered a free mount replacement service to provide K-1 compatibility. So I shipped my lens off to the distributor and got the fix, which included a firmware update.

The one notable absence in my full frame lens kit is an ultrawide zoom. Only one such lens is currently available in Pentax mount, a Pentax branded version of Tamron's 15-30mm f/2.8. Though it gets excellent reviews, it is big and heavy, and I find it hard to justify spending CAN$2000 for it. I don't need such a wide aperture in this category and I wish for a smaller, lighter, less expensive option. As things stand, a pair of optically superb, Samyang manufactured, manual focus primes must suffice to serve all my ultra wide angle duties. My Bower 14mm f/2.8 and Rokinon 24mm f/1.4 are my go-to choices for northern lights and other wide night sky views in any case. The Bower mainly filled this role on my K-5 and its even wider coverage on the full frame camera expands its usefulness for capturing sky-spanning displays. But for daytime use with the K-1, I find it difficult to focus accurately at distances less than "infinity", and even the great depth of field cannot always mask my focusing errors. The 24mm Rokinon really comes into its own with a much more useful angle of view in full frame shooting. Its fast aperture and the K-1's superior high ISO performance are a killer combination for nighttime photography.

My other full frame prime lenses in current use are the much praised Pentax FA 31mm f/1.8 Limited, a Pentax FA 50mm f/1.4, Sigma AF 70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro, and Kiron 105mm f/2.8 Macro. The latter is the only lens from my 35mm film shooting days that ultimately withstood the test of digital, and it remains one of my favourites. I still have my collection of other film lenses that I put on a shelf after I tested them when I got my original Pentax K10D DSLR and I was not satisfied with the results. Perhaps I should give some of them another try and see if they might work better with the full frame sensor.

Christmas 2015 Greetings and Best Wishes to All

The image I used on my Christmas card this year is an edited version of a photo that is included in my Aurora Extraordinaire gallery. I added the dog team from a photo I had taken in bright sunshine at the start of the 2011 Yukon Quest race, using Photoshop to massage it to look as natural as possible in this scene under the dim green illumination of the northern lights. A version of this image earned an honourable mention in the 2015 North Shore Challenge, an annual photo competition run under the auspices of the Canadian Association for Photographic Art. For the version on this card, I made some warp adjustments to slightly reduce the fish-eye effect of my widest angle lens, which I needed to capture the expanse of sky that was filled by the auroral pattern.

March 23, 2014 - Whitehorse Photography Club Print Exhibition

UPDATE:  The show was a great success, viewed by hundreds and the subject of many favourable comments.

If you are in Whitehorse this April, please visit our print exhibition at the Yukon Arts Centre. I will have a couple of pieces in the show. If you can make it to the opening reception on the 4th, some of us will be there to meet and talk with you. By the way, contrary to what the poster below says, we have had a few print shows in the past; I participated in 3 of these. But those were many years ago in the pre-digital era and, until now, the present generation of the club has concentrated its efforts for the public on presenting workshops. There will be another one of those this autumn.

March 2, 2014 - New Gallery: Aurora Extraordinaire



Aurora_February_19,_2014_22-48-35

Aurora - February 19, 2014 22:48:35

The Northern Lights were active in February of 2014. Especially on the 18th and 19th nights of the month they put on an impressive show over my area in the southern Yukon, the likes of which I don't believe I had ever seen before and certainly had not photographed previously. The hours I spent capturing this display yielded about 100 images and most of them are satisfying. In fact, overall I am delighted with the images almost as much as I was thrilled by the spectacle of the auroral event itself.

And so it was that I feel compelled to present this gallery and show my record of this awe inspiring natural phenomenon to others who were not privileged to experience it first hand. To be clear, the photos cannot reproduce the experience of being there.  This highly active aurora was often full of rapid motion and undulating brightness and that was a big component of the spell it cast. Sequential series of images might give some sense of that movement but it is a very abstract interpretation. The main effect is undesirable blurring of the light patterns during the necessarily long exposures. But with those long exposures, the camera does record things that are too dim to be visible to the human eye. I have further boosted the tonal relationships with adjustments in Adobe Lightroom. The result is still a credible representation of what I saw at the time of exposure, but a somewhat enhanced representation that reflects my photographer's vision of it.

Currently this gallery only contains photos from the two nights I have described here. I anticipate that I may evolve it into a more general gallery of my Aurora Borealis photography, adding some of my better past and future images of the subject and perhaps removing some of the more redundant existing ones.

View the Aurora Extraordinare gallery here.

March 17, 2013 - New Gallery in New Format


I have just posted a new gallery,  Road Trip 2012 , which is a collection of photographs I took during a motorcycle trip to the Okanagan last August. Yes, it has been a long time coming ... and indeed, a long time since I last added any gallery to this site.

My previous galleries have been Flash based and I wanted to move away from that format given its widely maligned performance and security issues and declining ubiquity of support. But I was insistent about not giving up the functionality my flash galleries provided and especially about being able to still integrate galleries into this site such that they look and feel like they belong and retain full navigation. JavaScript was the fairly obvious way to go but I had difficulty identifying a specific application that would meet my requirements. After trying and abandoning a couple, I have settled on jAlbum with the Matrix skin.

Matrix is rich in features, including display of select EXIF data and linking to Google Maps from geotagged images, and it allows considerable customization of layout and style. Still, even after I had figured out how to harness the myriad options within the interface, I had to code many inline styles and make a few edits to output files to get close to what I really wanted. I also had to design a new, flexible, wide page with top navigation to contain the gallery and suitably integrate it into this website. The result is not perfect but I am generally satisfied with it.

The gallery is embedded in its web page using an iframe, which creates a couple of issues though it is only really a problem if you are viewing on a small, low resolution display. In that case, when images need to be reduced in size to fit within the browser viewport, the iframe prevents proper resizing. If you run the browser in full screen mode or at least with all toolbars hidden, a minimum screen height of 764 pixels should be adequate if a bit clunky to use. In case this is not satisfactory or the gallery is not displaying properly in the iframe for whatever reason, I have included a link at the bottom of the page which will open the bare gallery outside of the container page. Then resizing should occur properly, though a limitation of the matrix skin with my placement of captions below the photos may still result in unsatisfactory display of vertical images.

Now that I have produced this gallery it should serve as a template for me to much more easily and quickly create other new galleries. Stay tuned.

New Galleries Main Page too!


With the addition of a new gallery, I have also rebuilt the main  Galleries  page that indexes all the galleries. This page had been a remnant of antiquated html code without css styles and structured around my original ill-advised choice of html frames architecture. I have employed the flexible, wide page format I designed for the new gallery for this page also.

You might notice some recent “maintenance” updates elsewhere on the site as well. More to come, including more photos.

September 2, 2012 - Creative Commons License


Although I am never averse to earning a bit of revenue from my images to help offset the expense of my craft, I decided many years ago that I was not interested in pursuing photography as a career. I valued it too much as a hobby to sacrifice that to the demands, responsibilities and compromise of creative freedom that go with the profession. Still, like most creators, I do not want others to take advantage of my work for personal gain with none of the benefit accruing back to me and I worry about the potential for unscrupulous people to misuse my photos for nefarious purposes, possibly with legal consequences to me. Thus I have been protective of my copyright. This often has been an uncomfortable stance for me, especially since I started this website with my main purpose being to share my artistic vision with the world. I have resisted the precaution of marring my website images with a watermark or employing techniques that make it harder to download them, relying mostly on relatively low resolution to limit their commercial value. I know many people download images with callous disregard for copyright and really I am fine with them doing so for their personal enjoyment. I am not so thrilled that my work could be widely distributed with no credit being attributed to me as the creator. To publicly license rights for such uses with proper conditions is a legal minefield I am not prepared or qualified to navigate by myself.

I first became aware of the Creative Commons a couple of years ago. I was attracted by its facility to proffer certain usage rights to the public that I wished to allow, backstopped by a solid legal license and appropriate conditions of use. I considered adopting one of their licenses at that time but did not get around to it, partially out of concern that it did not adequately protect against use for purposes that might misrepresent me by contradicting my personal viewpoints and values. That concern remains but, on balance, the Creative Commons provides the best framework I am aware of to share my photographs without making criminals of users who respect the conditions of the license, while encouraging attribution to me and maintaining reasonable safeguards against abuse ... or at least a sound legal basis to address abuses.

I have chosen to adopt the  Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License , the most restrictive of the Creative Commons license options. If someone wants to use my work for commercial purposes I generally expect compensation for this so they must negotiate a separate license with me. I am more receptive to people wanting to create derivative works using my images but to guard against them being used in ways that I would find objectionable I maintain the requirement that they obtain specific permission from me.

I have written more  here  about how this Creative Commons license applies to my images on this website.

These birds were nesting in the trunk of an almost dead tree near my house. I tried for days to get a sharp photo of them feeding but their heads oscillate violently back and forth during the transfer and all I got was dozens of blurred images. The other two chicks had taken flight and it was my last chance with this late bloomer when I boosted my ISO to 4500 to achieve a fast enough shutter speed to freeze them. The Pentax K-5 was up to it and, after some work in Photoshop with the Noise Ninja plug-in, this image yielded a satisfactory 11" x 14" print.

February 18, 2008 - New Camera and Lenses = New Perspectives

Since going digital in 2004 I have been shooting with a Konica Minolta Dimage A2, a compact sensor, fixed lens camera, albeit one of the most advanced examples of its type, designed for serious photographers. Now I have purchased a Pentax K10D digital SLR, with which I can use all my old lenses from my Pentax 35mm SLR’s, including my much loved Kiron 105mm f/2.8 Macro and Pentax A 200mm f/4. New digitally optimized lenses work better with digital cameras though, so I also have bought some new lenses: Sigma AF 10-20mm f/4.0-5.6 EX DC, Tamron AF 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 DiII LD IF Macro, Pentax FA 50mm f/1.4, Sigma AF 70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro  and Pentax AF 31mm f/1.8 Limited.
