I have really come to love shooting with Adox Color Implosion 100 film. I always shoot it at box speed and I just love the color tones and grain. It gives a really nice vintage look. And I’m really impressed by the consistency of this film too. I know exactly what I’m going to get […]
These were shot at Juno Beach in Courseulles-sur-Mer, Normandy, France last summer using Adox Color Implosion film. Juno Beach is the codename for the beach that the Canadians stormed on D-Day and it is also home to the Juno Beach Centre, a museum dedicated to those Canadians that fought and lost their lives in WWII. […]
These were shot during my trip to Normandy, France in August. They are from the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial at Omaha Beach. Omaha Beach saw some of the bloodiest fighting on D-Day and the battle and cemetery are both featured in the movie Saving Private Ryan. These were shot using FPP RetroChrome 160 film […]
The shot of the canoes is one of my favourite photos. I love the light and dark of it. These were shot on Fomapan Action 400 film which along with Kodak’s Tri-X are my favourite B&W films.
I came across this really cool bicycle in Arromanches-les-Bains when I was in France this summer. Arromanches is where the British built a Mulberry harbour after D-Day in World War II. The remnants of the Mulberry harbour can still be seen today. I love rescale film and the red, orange and gold tones you can […]
I took these photos of hay bales from a viewpoint overlooking St. Lambert-sur-Dives in Normandy, France. St. Lambert-sur-Dives is the location where Major David Vivian Currie of the South Alberta Regiment won the Victoria Cross for his efforts and bravery during the Battle of the Falaise Pocket in World War II. If you look closely […]
I shot these back in June at Heritage Park using a roll of Ferrania Solaris FG Plus 100 film that I bought from Katie Shoots Film (back when it was called ‘Curating Cuteness’). They turned out better than expected considering the film expired in 2007. The old steam locomotive runs all around Heritage Park and […]
I went hiking up to Widgeon Falls last summer with my best friend. Widgeon Falls is located in Pinecone Burke Provincial Park in BC. I’ve done this canoe trip on Widgeon Creek and hike up to the falls many times before and I am never disappointed by the beauty of the park. Up at the […]
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 […]
