Here’s another great resource for the beginning film photographer: Ken Rockwell This is my ‘go to’ website when I’m considering a camera or lens and want a review I can trust. You’ll find lots of great advice there. It’s also a great place to learn about cameras and photography in general. I feel humbled by […]
I shot these while winter camping using Kodak Hawkeye Traffic Surveillance Color 400 film that I bought from the Film Photography Project store. If you haven’t heard of them before, they are worth checking out. The FPP is an amazing community resource for film photographers. They produce an awesome podcast and run a film store […]
Here’s another batch of trees taken in Bow Valley Provincial Park–this time in chromogenic B&W! (I hate chromogenic B&W. I prefer more contrast.)
There are pros and cons to cross-processing slide film. Personally, a big pro for me is the way the sky is rendered. The first two shots are among my favourites. These shots of trees were taken on a hike in Bow Valley Provincial Park while camping at YMCA Camp Chief Hector.
After a brief hiatus, here are a few more photos from YMCA Camp Chief Hector in winter. This was my first foray into cross-processing slide film. These were all shot on AgfaPhoto CT Precisa and then cross-processed. I used a polarizing filter which is why the sky gets darker in the photos. I just love […]

These are the last of my photos from the Calgary Zoo back in February 2014. I had hoped to take more photos of the penguins, but I ran out of film.
I purchased a La Sardina Splendour camera online from Lomography and while I love the look of the camera, I struggled to take photos with it this day. At one point, the back of the camera popped off and two shots were overexposed! *sigh* I learned that you really need to commit to one camera […]
The Calgary Zoo has since gotten rid of its elephants, which is a good thing since I believe it was far too cold for them.
Even though it was a warm day, things are still quite frozen in Calgary in February.
