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 […]
On days when the weather keeps me inside, I look for things to photograph around the house. I spent one weekend trying to capture some of my childhood toys on Instax Square film. I tried to create a sense of movement with the background in these photos. I think it works better in the second […]
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 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 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 bought my wife a lovely bouquet of gerbera daisies and was planning to photograph them, but only managed this one photo before they wilted.
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 […]
I bought some sunflowers one day and since I had a few frames of Instax Mini Monochrome left in my Lomo’Instant Automat Glass Elbrus, I took these close-ups.
This photo was made using my Mamiya C220 TLR, an 80mm f/2.8 Mamiya-Sekor lens, and studio strobes. It took almost an entire pack of Instax Mini to get this shot. The Mamiya C220 was never designed for Instax Mini, but I love the camera’s 80mm lens and wanted to see how close up I could […]
I recently purchased a new camera: the Lomo’Instant Automat Glass Elbrus. My local camera store was selling it for $70 less than what Lomography had it listed for on their website. And since I had been eyeing this camera for a while, there was no way I could pass up a deal like that. I […]
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 […]
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.
Over the years, I have steadily come to look upon my Lomography Belair X 6-12 Jetsetter camera with growing disappointment. My disenchantment with the Belair rests upon two chief complaints: The plastic lenses are terrible. They are quite soft, especially along the edges, and the photos are often out of focus—rarely in a good way. […]
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. […]
Today is Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day! While I celebrate by shooting some pinhole photos later today, I thought I would share some of the photos I took on last year’s Pinhole Photography Day. Around the time last year when I was experimenting with shooting Instax Mini film in my Mamiya C220, I was also building […]
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.
