My wife has since redecorated and our bedroom looks nothing like it did in this first photo taken before I met her.
Calgary’s Chinese Cemetery dates back to 1908 and is the burial site for many of the city’s early Chinese pioneers.
Inspired by Katie’s ‘At Home’ series on Katie Shoots Film, here is my own homage to photos taken at home.
The Superheadz Ikimono Flash 110 is a cute little camera. It’s too bad that the film advance on mine often fails to stop at the next frame and cock the shutter. It’s not uncommon for me to lose one or two frames each time I advance the film.
I believe these were the first two photos I shot when I arrived in Beijing. They were taken in the neighbourhood surrounding the hotel I stayed in.
This installment of Film on Film features four black & white films: Valca Grano Fino Positiva 6, Street Candy ATM 400, Ilford HP5 Plus 400, and the original Fuji Neopan Acros 100. Valca Grano Fino Positiva 6 is a rare cinema film I picked up from Labeauratoire. Valca was a film manufacturer in Spain, but […]
This is from a photo walk I took through Fish Creek Park the year after the 2013 flood. I went to see the damage from the flood once the park had re-opened and was deemed safe again for the public. I had a few cameras with me that day, but I only snapped this one […]
It’s amazing how much fun you can have sitting on the deck on a hot summer’s day with a fisheye lens (and a glass of wine).
Here are some more photos from the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. What I most remember about that day is that it was incredibly bright and I didn’t have a wide enough lens to capture everything I wanted in the frame.
I shot these photos in Eau Claire (downtown Calgary) along the river. It’s pretty clear that my Kodak Six-20 Model C has some light leaks. I’m not sure where the leaks originated since I had the camera taped up and my examination of the bellows when I got the camera didn’t reveal any pin prick […]
As I was putting this post together, it occurred to me that I have never processed Fuji Velvia 100 normally. I have only ever cross-processed this film. As much as I like this look, fortunately, I have a few more rolls left and will have to develop the next one in E6 chemistry. These photos […]
These are Casablanca Lilies and they are a varietal of the oriental lily. A few months ago I decided that I wanted to try my hand at photographing flowers. I bought a bouquet of lilies at the supermarket, grabbed a vase and some decorative black rocks, and arranged them all together. Then I sat back […]
The night market in Xi’an’s Muslim Quarter is every street photographer’s dream. There is so much to see and experience. The entire street is lit up so bright that you can easily shoot with 100 ISO film even though it’s night. I could have spent the entire night snapping pictures had I brought more film […]
Sarah & I wandered down this street one afternoon in Chengdu and we discovered a shop where you could have your name carved in Chinese characters onto a stamp. We thought it would make a great memento of our trip and we bought a matching pair of stamps. I took these photos while we waited.
These photos were shot on Kodak SO-554 200 film — a film I know almost nothing about. I came across this mysterious film one day while shopping online and quickly bought 3 rolls. All I can tell you is that the SO stands for ‘special order’ and the 554 is the order number. Kodak SO-554 […]
Inspired by Katie’s Half-Frame Diary, I decided that I needed a half-frame camera myself. I love the look of two half-frames scanned together. The two images form a diptych and the juxtaposition offers a unique opportunity for photographic storytelling. It’s something that I’m eager to experiment with. I already own a Diana Mini, and while […]
Here are 4 more rolls from my Film on Film series. Today’s selection features rolls of Kodak Ektachrome 100 EPN, Holga B&W 400, Rollei Superpan 200, and Fuji Pro 160S. Eight years ago I managed to pick up 10 rolls of Kodak Ektachrome 100 EPN in 35mm and 7 rolls in 120. I’ve been pretty […]
I shot these while wandering around Burnsland Cemetery when I was first experimenting with cross-processed film. I like some of the statues in Burnsland, but overall I don’t think it’s as picturesque as Union Cemetery, which is right across the street.
The name of this sculpture is Sliver. It was created by Virginia King and is a symbol of time. Sarah and I were walking in Newmarket (a suburb of Auckland) when we came upon the sculpture and I knew I had to photograph it.
I took this self-portrait as part of my Self-Portrait Challenge a few years ago. The idea behind the challenge was to take a series of creative self-portraits that would push my creativity and skills as a photographer. It isn’t easy to be both photographer and subject when you are using a manual focus camera. Unfortunately, […]
