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. […]
A few years ago, when I first heard that Bellamy Hunt of Japan Camera Hunter would be launching a new film, I had to place an advance order. I shot this the day I finally received my ten rolls of brand new JCH Street Pan.
Sarah has been learning to play guitar. A few years ago (when this photo was taken), she rented a guitar for a few months while she saved up to buy her own. She has since purchased a really nice Taylor GS Mini.
With the exception of the very last photo, these were all taken during Holga Week. The first three photos are the ones I submitted to the contest. I used the same homemade mask I described in a previous post (Shooting Instax Mini Film with a Holga) to load my Holga with Instax. Studio strobes were […]
Sarah and I took a bicycle tour around the Yangshuo countryside when we were in China. It was a spectacular day and we had a lot of fun. I shot these with my Superheadz Ultra Wide & Slim loaded with B&W film. I would have prefered colour film, but that was all I had with […]
After successfully shooting Instax Mini film in my Mamiya C220 TLR, I attempted to shoot it in my Holga. My first attempt failed miserably. I don’t own the incredibly rare Instax Mini Back designed for the Holga (I found one on eBay once, but they wanted $200 for it), so I had to find a […]
For the third installment in my Film on Film series, I have a lovely trio of B&W film: JCH Street Pan 400, Ferrania P30 Alpha 80, and Orwo NP7 400. JCH Street Pan 400 is a high-contrast film by Japan Camera Hunter that has given me mixed results. This is normal when shooting film. You […]
These photos are from my Film on Film project. A few years ago, I created a small photography studio in my basement. It’s really nothing more than a backdrop and a few strobes, but it has allowed me to practice shooting portraits and learn the fundamentals of lighting. Unfortunately, as time went on, the basement […]
I’ve been working on a new project. I’m photographing every roll of film I own on Fuji Instax Mini film. These are the first two rolls I’ve captured and they are part of a new series I’m calling Film on Film. They were shot using a Diana F+ with Instant Back and it took me […]
