I went to France this summer and had the time of my life! These were taken in Paris on the Pont Neuf (new bridge) where it crosses the Île de la Cité. The Pont Neuf is the oldest bridge in Paris. There is a platform there called la Place du Pont Neuf with a statue […]
Since today is Halloween, I thought I’d post a few photos of cosplay. I shot these at the 2014 Calgary Comic Expo. The last photo is of the Sons of Fenrir. They are reenactors who portray 9th century Viking / Norse culture. The detail of their costumes and campsite is pretty amazing and they reenact […]
More shots from around Camp Chief Hector including the adventure playground. These were shot on Fomapan Action 400 and it’s become one of my new favourite B&W films. I just love the deep blacks that it produces. Fomapan Action 400 and Kodak Tri-X are two film stocks I can’t live without.
These were shot at Heritage Park at the start of summer using Adox Color Implosion film. I love this film because it has the right amount of grain giving it a vintage look from the ’70s. These were all shot at box speed (hence the cooler tones), but if you shoot this film at ISO […]
This photo was shot using a Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens that I recently purchased on eBay.
I shot these while winter camping using Kodak Hawkeye Traffic Surveillance Color 400 film that I bought from the Film Photography Project store. If you haven’t heard of them before, they are worth checking out. The FPP is an amazing community resource for film photographers. They produce an awesome podcast and run a film store […]
Here’s another batch of trees taken in Bow Valley Provincial Park–this time in chromogenic B&W! (I hate chromogenic B&W. I prefer more contrast.)
There are pros and cons to cross-processing slide film. Personally, a big pro for me is the way the sky is rendered. The first two shots are among my favourites. These shots of trees were taken on a hike in Bow Valley Provincial Park while camping at YMCA Camp Chief Hector.
After a brief hiatus, here are a few more photos from YMCA Camp Chief Hector in winter. This was my first foray into cross-processing slide film. These were all shot on AgfaPhoto CT Precisa and then cross-processed. I used a polarizing filter which is why the sky gets darker in the photos. I just love […]
I spent 4 days at YMCA Camp Chief Hector in February 2014. It was my first time camping in winter and luckily we had great weather. The camp’s location in Bow Valley Provincial Park is absolutely gorgeous and there’s a beautiful view of Mount Yamnuska from the camp. I shot 8 rolls of film while […]
You may have been wondering why this film photography blog is titled Going Lomo. Lomo, short for Lomography, is a style of photography using vintage and toy cameras. Lomo photos are often characterized by saturated colours and vignetting around the corners. The ‘Lomo look’ can be achieved by cross-processing E-6 slide film in chemicals meant […]
