These photos are from a trip to Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park with a group of other photographers.
After waiting 18 months for my Orwo film to arrive, here are my first photos from Orwo Wolfen NC500. I’m a little disappointed that the colors didn’t turn out as virbrant as they look in Orwo’s examples, but the lighting conditions probably played a part in that (I shot this ISO 400 film on a […]
This World War I monument in Nanton, Alberta can be found near the Bomber Command Museum.
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.
A few years ago, I took a road trip along the Cowboy Trail with some other photographers. This car wreck on the side of the road was one of the many things we encountered and photographed that day.
It’s not uncommon to see deflated and flat Santas, reindeer, snowmen, etc. on people’s lawns during the day over the Christmas season. Then they all get plugged in and reinflated in the evening.
I shot this a while back when Sarah was saving up for a guitar. At the time, I thought that maybe I should make my own jar and call it ‘Dan’s Camera Fund’. But then I thought that’s what my pay cheque is called!
Here are more animals from the Calgary Zoo, this time shot on Kodak Hawkeye Traffic Surveillance Color 400 film. The last photo is of the Transalta Rainforest building at the zoo.
These photos are the result of my fascination with the barbed wire fences found at Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park.
With Christmas just a few days away, I want to wish everyone happy holidays! Whether you are a regular visitor to my film photography blog or you arrived here by accident, I hope you have a wonderful holiday season and I wish you a healthy, happy, and prosperous new year! Cheers, Dan
The Kettle Valley Railway was a railway that ran across southern Bristish Columbia through Myra Canyon and operated during the first half of the 20th century. It was finally abandoned in 1989 with portions converted into a recreational trail. Sadly, a 2003 forest fire destroyed 14 of the 18 original wooden trestle bridges in Myra […]
These photos are from a trip I took to Lake Louise five years ago. I had taken many more photos that weekend, but unfortunately those rolls of film were lost in the mail when I sent them to The Darkroom for processing. I lost 8 rolls of film due to some sort of mishap with […]
Five years ago, I took a road trip with my photography club down to Lundbreck Falls, a 2-hour drive south of Calgary via the Cowboy Trail. While I was shooting photos from the top of the falls, a man walked up and decided to stretch out on the rocks. Naturally, I had to snap some […]
Every November, just before Remembrance Day, thousands of white crosses are placed row on row along Memorial Drive. This is the Field of Crosses, an annual memorial honouring the 3500 men and women from southern Alberta who gave their lives in service to Canada, many during the world wars. I shot these on a roll […]
These were shot one early morning at the Calgary Zoo on Fuji Velvia 50. I bought a 100 ft bulk roll of expired Fuji Velvia 50 on eBay for cheap. The seller owned two rolls, and when he opened one and shot some photos with it, he found that the film had color shifted and […]
These were shot at Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park using Svema Color DS 100. Not expecting much, I was pretty impressed with this film and how these photos turned out. Although, I did shoot a second roll of some cows that were all horribly underexposed.
These photos are from a photography workshop I took 5 years ago. We spent a morning with a few amateur models, wandering around downtown and snapping photos in various locations. These were shot in front of Coppeneur Chocolatier.
Over the years, I’ve shot a lot of photos at Union Cemetery. Most of the old headstones were made from sandstone and they have not stood the test of time. Sandstone is a very soft sedimentary stone and it is a poor match for Calgary’s climate. These photos were taken with LomoChrome Purple film and […]
