I love this clever sign for Fair’s Fair Books.
These photos are from the first roll of Fuji Velvia 100 that I’ve developed in E-6 chemistry. Every other roll has been cross-processed in C-41, including the last time I posted photos of railroad tracks. While I really like cross-processed Velvia, I like normal Velvia even more!
I followed the path that led underneath the railroad bridge and discovered Demon Zaza.
No, this photo isn’t backwards, even if the word YAHOO is. I was wandering along the riverfront looking for a place to sit and reload my camera. When I looked up, I saw the sign. I was puzzled for a moment and then realized it was meant to be viewed from the other side. I’d […]
I recently purchased two cameras on eBay at a good price and was pleasantly surprised at their better-than-expected condition. Excited to test them out, I loaded them both with film and headed to Harvie Passage: a man-made series of rapids off the Bow River specifically designed for kayaking. I shot both cameras in and around […]
A beautiful day, fresh film, and a new camera. I’ve been yearning for a good walkabout medium format camera and I think I found it in the Fuji GS645S Professional. Essentially a half-frame camera, the GS645S is no bigger than a Holga. While it has a light meter, everything is fully manual; ISO, aperture, shutter […]
These strange concentric circles that appear in the first two photos are the result of bromide drag and it’s a byproduct of developing film with little or no agitation, such as when using semi-stand or stand development. Bromide drag occurs during development when bromide builds up around the sprocket holes of the film and then […]
This World War I monument in Nanton, Alberta can be found near the Bomber Command Museum.
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 […]
These photos from Heritage Park were shot on Ferrania Solaris FG Plus 100. It is one of my favourite films and I love the way it renders colours!
These photos of a Bactrian camel grunting were taken during the Calgary Zoo’s semi-annual ‘Focused’ event, in which they open the Zoo early (when the animals are more active) exclusively for photographers.
A few years ago, I took a road trip along the Cowboy Trail with some other photographers. This car wreck on the side of the road was one of the many things we encountered and photographed that day.
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.
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 […]
This is cross-processed Kodak Elite Chrome 100 and I love how just by varying the exposure, the film gave me a very different colour palette. I wish I had recorded the exposure of each frame on the morning I shot these photos, but alas I wasn’t that smart. I’ve posted other photos from this roll, […]
I shot these photos on a hike at Grassi Lakes. My fellow hikers that day could not understand why I was shooting film, lol.
I like to experiment. Some experiments happen on a whim (“I wonder what would happen if I…”) and some experiments are methodically planned and executed. Given my busy schedule, the latter can sometimes take a few years. These photos represent two experiments: one a whim and the other planned. The First Experiment (the Whim) The […]
