I love trying something different, and so when I learned that Adox and CineStill were both releasing new films this year, I had to place a pre-order. I received my rolls of Adox Color Mission 200 and CineStill 400Dynamic back in April and May and promptly loaded them into cameras. However, I’ve only just recently […]
Sarah and I spent a few nights in a beautiful converted boat house on the Tauranga waterfront when we got married. I captured this sunrise from the window one morning and was thrilled to see that my Ultra Wide & Slim (and Lomography Color 800 film) managed to capture the scene despite the low light […]
I shot these photos at Fish Creek Park on the same day I shot similar photos on Ferrania Solaris FG 100 with my Canon EOS 3. It’s interesting to compare the two sets of photos as it really highlights what a good camera, lens, and film combo can do. (Hint: these are not the better […]
This is one of the few good photos I got from a roll of LomoChrome Metropolis that I shot in my Diana Mini.
Sarah and I came across this little bunny rabbit living in the bramble alongside the beach one day as we walked along Jericho Beach.
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 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 […]
Here are another 5 rolls from my Film on Film series. Today’s selection features rolls of Perutz Primera 100, Adox Color Implosion 100, Konica Centuria 200, Kodak UltraMax 400, and Lomography Redscale XR 50-200.
In case you haven’t heard, RETO recently announced that they are (re)releasing the Ultra Wide & Slim camera. After reading the recent coverage by Emulsive and Kosmo Foto, I decided that I need to share my review of this iconic little camera. This is one of my favourite cameras and I take it with me […]
These are from a day I spent driving around West Vancouver. Some are from Ambleside Park and some from Lighthouse Park.
I was quite thrilled to discover a “duck crossing” sign when visiting Tauranga, New Zealand. Sarah and I took a walk one afternoon around this lake and true to form, I spotted some ducks crossing the road. While I understand why they would cross the road to get to the lake, I have no idea […]
One of the things I love about Calgary is that some days, when the weather is right, you can see the Rocky Mountains looming large in the west. You can see them on the horizon of the first two photos.
With the recently announced return of LomoChrome Turquoise, I thought I might post a few photos and share my thoughts on this color-shifting emulsion. Of all Lomography films, this one has the wildest color palette. This is not a film for the faint of heart. If you prefer natural or even saturated colors, you will […]
Sarah & I travelled to China a few years ago. These photos are from a day we spent in Chengdu. On an overcast day, we visited People’s Park, rowed a boat on the lake, watched an elderly man write poetry on the pavement with water, visited the Wenshu Monastery, and watched with averse fascination as […]
Given the pandemic, my wife and I decided not to stray too far from home this summer. Instead, I had big plans to take daily photo walks around the city, but that plan quickly fell through as Calgary has been almost constantly covered in a haze of smoke from forest fires originating in British Columbia.
