In 2015, I went to France on a World War I & II history tour. We visited many of the Canadian, British and American battelfields in Normandy. These photos were taken at Pointe du Hoc, which is the highlest point of land between Utah Beach to the west and Omaha Beach to the east. On […]
The highlight of my trip to China last year had to be the night markets. There is just so much to see and photograph. The streets and restaurant patios are filled with interesting people, while every shop is open with something exciting going on out front. There’s plenty of food, music, and all sorts of […]
This is a photo from Central Memorial Park here in Calgary. I shot this shortly before it was announced that manufacturing of the Holga camera had ceased production. Of course, that decision didn’t last long and the Holga is still being made to this day. I like my Holga and should probably shoot with it […]
These are photos of a few of the statues on the grounds surrounding Government Gardens in Rotorua, New Zealand. I quite like the way the first photo turned out. I love the look of Kodak Tri-X 400. It is an absolutely beautiful B&W film.
I shot these on Kodak BW400CN, a chromogenic B&W film, which isn’t a true B&W film as it is designed to be processed in C-41 chemistry. I’m not a fan of this film and wasn’t sad to see Kodak discontinue its production. I shot these while wandering around Pearce Estate Park.
On one of my many trips to Union Cemetery, I shot these B&W photos of damaged and deteriorating headstones. Many of these headstones date back to the early days of Calgary’s settlement and it’s rather sad to see the loss of history. Hopefully, by capturing a few photos I can do my part to preserve […]
I shot these photos in 2015 while on a tour of Canadian World War II battlefields in France. These are from Arromanches in Normandy. Arromanches is the location of Gold Beach where the British landed on D-Day and built a Mulberry harbour out of huge concrete caissons, many of which can still be seen off […]
I like shooting rare and expired film. I like it when I discover an old film that not only still produces good results, but also has a unique look or color palette. These are from a roll of Valca Grano Fino Positiva cinematic film that I purchased from Labeauratoire. Since Valca has a recommended ISO […]
My wife gave me a Lab-Box for Christmas this year and I’ve started developing my own film. These were developed using Rodinal (or Blazinal as it is branded here in Canada).
A while back, I participated in a model shoot at Rundle Ruins. I shot both film and digital, and as the sun set and the light faded, it made film photography challenging. Many photos were underexposed. Thankfully, these photos of Dana turned out quite well.
As Sarah and I took a walk around Lake Rotorua, I spotted this couple enjoying the lake beneath the shade of a tree… and I spotted a swan swimming nearby. This unsuspecting couple never saw it coming until it was too late… but thankfully I did. And so I hung around and did my best […]
I’ve been rather disappointed with the results I get from Rollei film. Rollei Blackbird did little to change that. These were some of the best from the roll. On another note: Rollei Blackbird is the 100th film I’ve posted to Going Lomo.
These are from a photography workshop I took a few years ago shooting models downtown.
Sarah and I took a bicycle tour through the countryside of Yangshuo. But to get to the bicycle rental shop, we had to first walk through a rather sketchy underground parking lot before emerging on the other side in an alley where I took these photos.
