Last year, Sarah & I drove out to Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, a UNESCO World Heritage Site whose history goes back approximately 11,000 years. We hiked along the interpretive trail where I took these photos.
I managed to get my hands on a roll of Shanghai GP3 100 B&W film and shot these in studio with Sarah. My Mamiya C220 is a fully manual TLR that doesn’t have a hotshoe. Instead it has a PC socket with a M-sync / X-sync switch. Using a cable, I can connect the Mamiya […]
Still more photos from my trip to Elbow Falls with Sarah. These were shot on expired (and no longer available) Lomography Redscale 100. Its replacement is the much improved Lomography Redscale XR 50-200.
I shot this self-portrait with my Diana F+. At the time, I didn’t realize that I had forgotten to remove the Instax insert lens and so that’s why this photo is the way it is. There’s more from this roll of film if you’re interested.
I shot these at Lake Louise one winter with my then new Diana F+. I had been shooting Instax Mini with the Diana F+ and forgot to remove the little insert lens that makes the Instant Back work before loading 120 film. You can see it in the photos. It’s the oddly shaped black frame […]
I shot these back in Autumn, 2016 at the International Balloon Festival in High River, Alberta. Hot air balloons only fly at dawn, so I had to drive out to High River early that morning to catch the action. There were very few spectators and I was able to set up my tripod in a […]
Back in December, I participated in my first model shoot. I’ve never photographed models before so it was a bit of a learning curve. I wasn’t really sure of how to give the models direction or even what I wanted. I felt rather silly so I mostly hung back and watched what the other photographers […]
These are the first few photos from my Diana Mini. I got my Diana Mini for free from Lomography for spending $100 on film (so it wasn’t really free). I quite like this little camera and am pleased with the results. Nearly every photo I took with this camera over Christmas was in focus and […]
Sad news this week: the Holga has been discontinued. They won’t be making this iconic camera anymore. Some are happy to see its demise, but they are missing the point. The Holga is beloved because of its light leaks and vignetting. It’s not a DSLR. It’s a plastic toy camera. You can do things with […]
These photos of bronze statues of First Nations people were taken in the Artisan Gardens at Bow Valley Ranche in Fish Creek Park. The Artisan Gardens honour the First Nations people who used to live in Fish Creek Valley.
This is a shot of the Fish Creek Library that I took using a Mamiya C220 TLR (twin-lens reflex). I love my Mamiya TLR! It is a big, beautiful, all-mechanical, medium format TLR that is a lot of fun to shoot.
I had originally shot these for Holga Week, but never got around to developing the roll in time. These were shot in Calgary’s Central Memorial Park on a roll of expired Lomography Lady Grey B&W 400 film. The park honours all those who served for Canada in various wars. I thought I would share these […]
These are from my very first roll of 120 film shot with a Holga 120 CFN. First I watched a YouTube video on how to load a Holga, then I painstakingly loaded my Holga with a roll of Lomography Color 400 film, taped up the body of the Holga to prevent light leaks, and headed […]
