I love trying something different, and so when I learned that Adox and CineStill were both releasing new films this year, I had to place a pre-order. I received my rolls of Adox Color Mission 200 and CineStill 400Dynamic back in April and May and promptly loaded them into cameras. However, I’ve only just recently […]
I shot these photos on Fuji CDU II that I purchased from Northern Film Lab on eBay. I picked up 3 rolls in 120, however, the film was cut down from wider 70mm film stock and therefore has perforations along one side. Fuji CDU II is duplicating film and is meant to be shot at […]
I’ve shared photos from this roll of Agfa CT Precisa 200 before (see When Expired Film Goes Bad), but at that time I did not know the cause of the spots. I thought it may have had something to do with the age of the film or poor storage conditions. I was partially right. I […]
These skyline photos of Hong Kong were shot from the top of Victoria Peak on a foggy day.
I was taking photos around Sarah’s parents’ farm when she decided to walk on the fence (which overlooks a steep 50m (150ft) drop. I was grateful this photo turned out because I noticed my QL17 wasn’t giving me accurate meter readings in the fading evening light. I bracketed most of my shots, but I only […]
Sarah and I spent a few nights in a beautiful converted boat house on the Tauranga waterfront when we got married. I captured this sunrise from the window one morning and was thrilled to see that my Ultra Wide & Slim (and Lomography Color 800 film) managed to capture the scene despite the low light […]
I bought some sunflowers one day and since I had a few frames of Instax Mini Monochrome left in my Lomo’Instant Automat Glass Elbrus, I took these close-ups.
I took these photos of passengers sitting in the train corridor while aboard an overnight train from Shanghai to Xi’an.
Here are two more photos of a fellow passenger aboard a river cruise, this time in Paris. I was on a sightseeing cruise on the Seine when I noticed a woman wearing a lavender hat taking a selfie and snapped a few photos myself.
These photos of passengers were taken aboard the Victoria Grace while I was on a Yangtze River cruise in China a few years ago.
This photo was made using my Mamiya C220 TLR, an 80mm f/2.8 Mamiya-Sekor lens, and studio strobes. It took almost an entire pack of Instax Mini to get this shot. The Mamiya C220 was never designed for Instax Mini, but I love the camera’s 80mm lens and wanted to see how close up I could […]
The Canada goose is often considered a nuissance, probably because they can turn a beautiful grassy field into one covered with their excrement. On this day, they allowed me to photograph them relaxing in the morning sun.
This single photo is all that turned out on a 24-exposure roll of expired Kodak Max Versatility 400. It’s too bad because I was looking forward to seeing the photos I had taken while on a photo walk downtown last summer. I believe the other photos were lost, not because the film is expired — […]
I shot these photos at Fish Creek Park on the same day I shot similar photos on Ferrania Solaris FG 100 with my Canon EOS 3. It’s interesting to compare the two sets of photos as it really highlights what a good camera, lens, and film combo can do. (Hint: these are not the better […]
There are many damaged headstones throughout Union Cemetery. Sandstone was quite often used in Calgary in the early 20th century until they discovered it didn’t stand up to the climate very well. But this is the first (and only) time I have come across a wooden cross. The cross was broken in three pieces with […]
This is one of the few good photos I got from a roll of LomoChrome Metropolis that I shot in my Diana Mini.
This 6×12 panorama was an accidental double-exposure. At first glance it looks like an image of trees are layered over the sky, but it’s not as simple as that. Those trees belong to the scene on the left of a group of rock climbers, while the mountains and the lake in the center and to […]
Sarah and I came across this little bunny rabbit living in the bramble alongside the beach one day as we walked along Jericho Beach.
Here is another photo from my Self-Portrait Challenge. The theme for this one was reflection. The photo turned out better than I had anticipated. That being said, I think that it could do with an improvement. Conceptually, if I had to take this photo again, I think I would have some friends pretend to be […]
I recently purchased a new camera: the Lomo’Instant Automat Glass Elbrus. My local camera store was selling it for $70 less than what Lomography had it listed for on their website. And since I had been eyeing this camera for a while, there was no way I could pass up a deal like that. I […]
