Walking around the night market in Xi’an’s Muslim Quarter was a truly amazing experience. I could have wandered the streets for hours if I had had more film with me. These shots all captured the store vendors on their phones. Clearly, they were not as enthralled by the sights as I was.
Here are another 3 rolls from my Film on Film project. I haven’t had much luck with Kodak Max Versatility 400 (mostly because I shot it in a broken camera, lol). Agfa HDC 100 was a little underexposed, but then I didn’t bracket my shots. Lomography Cine400 Tungsten, on the other hand, gave me great […]
These photos were shot with a Candie’s branded plastic 35mm point & shoot camera that I discovered in a box at work. For years, I resisted the temptation to waste film on what I suspected was a terrible camera. I was hoping that the lens would at least have a sharp-ish centre, but the resulting […]
This is Kodak ProFoto XL 100 and, unless the name change is cosmetic, it is not the same as Kodak’s ProFoto 100 film (which is thought to be the same as Kodak Pro Image 100). Unfortunately, while I can find the data sheets for ProFoto and Pro Image (which are identical to each other), it […]
I shot these back in October during Holga Week. I had been planning to submit them, but wasn’t too thrilled with the way they turned out.
While out for a walk one day, I came across this pair of shoes pinned well above my head on a telephone pole. I guess someone must have lost their shoes.
I backed the Diana Instant Square on Kickstarter and while I love the look and feel of the camera, I was quite disappointed with it. It vignettes more than it should. I know that vignetting is to be expected with toy cameras, but when it ends up cropping the lower third of the frame, then […]
Here are some more photos from my cycling trip through Myra Canyon on the Kettle Valley Railway. These were shot with my Ultra Wide & Slim. It’s interesting to compare photos #2106 and #2108 (below) with photos #838 and #839 respectively. They were taken from the same vantage point, but with different cameras. Photos #838 […]
Here are four rolls of expired film I have shot with and one roll that I have yet to shoot. First up is Ferrania Solaris FG Plus 200. I love Solaris film and have almost always had very good results with it. Sadly, I’m all out of the 200 ISO. I was very excited by […]
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 […]
