I’ve decided that I quite like the way Dubblefilm Bubblegum 200 renders color. As the Dubblefilm website says, it’s “tinted with sweet tones” from a “pinkish vibe” to “deep magenta in the shadows”. It’s the subtlety of the tones that I appreciate. I don’t want a large color shift, just a pleasing warmth.
These photos were taken outside the Central Hawke’s Bay Museum in Waipawa, NZ. While much of the museum was devoted to the history of settlement in the region, they did have a few old cameras on display — including an Olympus Trip 35. I didn’t have the heart to tell them that the Trip 35 […]
This sculpture in downtown Calgary is called Van Gogh Monumental and was created by artist Bruno Catalano.
I’ve shared photos of Trio before, but this is the first time I’ve captured all three kinetic sculptures on film.
I’m happy with how these photos turned out given that it was a partially cloudy day. I can see why Velvia is often used for landscape photography. I love the way the light is rendered across the frame.
One of the things I love about half-frame cameras, like the Olympus Pen EED, is the ability to create diptychs and triptychs. It’s a great way to create panoramas or simply to juxtapose two images. I made this triptych of Auckland’s Wintergardens last year when Sarah and I were in New Zealand visiting family. It […]
Today is the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. It honours the survivors of residential schools and the thousands of children who never returned home. Outside Calgary’s Municipal Building, at the base of the horse statue, sit hundreds of children’s shoes. The shoes are a temporary memorial representing the Indigenous children who died in residential […]
These photos are from the first roll of Fuji Velvia 100 that I’ve developed in E-6 chemistry. Every other roll has been cross-processed in C-41, including the last time I posted photos of railroad tracks. While I really like cross-processed Velvia, I like normal Velvia even more!
I followed the path that led underneath the railroad bridge and discovered Demon Zaza.
A beautiful day, fresh film, and a new camera. I’ve been yearning for a good walkabout medium format camera and I think I found it in the Fuji GS645S Professional. Essentially a half-frame camera, the GS645S is no bigger than a Holga. While it has a light meter, everything is fully manual; ISO, aperture, shutter […]
Taking inspiration from Keith Devereux, I decided to crash the party too. A group of film photography bloggers have all shared a post about the three cameras they used most in 2022. And so, here is my take on that theme. The three cameras mentioned below took centre stage for me and held all my […]
This is Ollie. He is my father-in-law’s dog and he followed me around the house as I snapped some photos. I’ve posted photos of Ollie and his good friend Milly before. Milly has since passed away. Ollie misses her.
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 […]
Back in January, I decided to take on a 52 Week Photography Challenge. Since I shoot film, it’s difficult to have the photos from each week of the Challenge processed in time to have them posted in the corresponding week. So I have to post my photos late. Week 1’s challenge was to take a […]
