Orwo Still Hasn’t Shipped Film It is with sadness that I mark the 1 year anniversary of pre-ordering brand new Orwo film. A year ago today, I pre-ordered 5 rolls of film from Orwo, including their new color film, Wolfen NC500, as well as new B&W films, Wolfen NP100 and NP400. It has been exactly […]
Here are another 3 rolls from my Film on Film project. I haven’t had much luck with Kodak Max Versatility 400 (mostly because I shot it in a broken camera, lol). Agfa HDC 100 was a little underexposed, but then I didn’t bracket my shots. Lomography Cine400 Tungsten, on the other hand, gave me great […]
Surrounded by karst mountains, Yanghsuo is a very picturesque little town in south-eastern China. Can you spot the western brands on the buildings around town? Nike, Adidas, KFC, and Pizza Hut are all there.
Sarah & I spent a lovely day in People’s Park in Chengdu. We rowed a boat on the lake, had tea in the overcrowded seating area, watched an elderly man write poetry on the pavement in front of the Railway Protection Movement Monument, and visited the Wenshu Monastery.
These photos were shot with a Candie’s branded plastic 35mm point & shoot camera that I discovered in a box at work. For years, I resisted the temptation to waste film on what I suspected was a terrible camera. I was hoping that the lens would at least have a sharp-ish centre, but the resulting […]
These photos of a Bactrian camel grunting were taken during the Calgary Zoo’s semi-annual ‘Focused’ event, in which they open the Zoo early (when the animals are more active) exclusively for photographers.
On days when the weather keeps me inside, I look for things to photograph around the house. I spent one weekend trying to capture some of my childhood toys on Instax Square film. I tried to create a sense of movement with the background in these photos. I think it works better in the second […]
These photos were shot in Arromanches, a town in Normandy, France. The number 6 on the building refers to June 6, 1944 — D-Day. Arromanches, or Gold Beach as it was known in World War II, was one of the two Normandy beaches where the British landed. The last photo in this post features one […]
These photos are from the Église Saint-Jacques in Dieppe, France. The construction of this church began sometime in the 12th century. You can supposedly trace the history of gothic architecture over four centuries as this church wasn’t finished until the 16th century. As you can see in the photos, the Église Saint-Jacques is in need […]
This is Kodak ProFoto XL 100 and, unless the name change is cosmetic, it is not the same as Kodak’s ProFoto 100 film (which is thought to be the same as Kodak Pro Image 100). Unfortunately, while I can find the data sheets for ProFoto and Pro Image (which are identical to each other), it […]
