I had heard so much about the Ultra Wide & Slim (UWS) that when I bought one I was both excited and disappointed. Vivitar made the original Ultra Wide & Slim camera that rose to cult status. Superheadz from Japan makes clones in many different colours. But just because they are clones doesn’t mean that […]
These are from my very first roll of 120 film shot with a Holga 120 CFN. First I watched a YouTube video on how to load a Holga, then I painstakingly loaded my Holga with a roll of Lomography Color 400 film, taped up the body of the Holga to prevent light leaks, and headed […]
I bought a Belair X 6-12 Jetsetter with a 35mm Back from Lomography. I love the 35mm Back because it lets me shoot panoramas that are 3 conventional 35mm frames long with the sprockets exposed! These were the first photos I took with the 35mm Back and were shot in the summer of 2014 from […]
Here are some more photos from my trip to the Oregon coast in the late ’90s. I shot almost exclusively with Fuji film back then because I loved Fuji’s colour palette with its saturated cooler colours. Incidentally, back then I didn’t like Kodak film which had a warmer tone. Today, it’s quite the opposite. While […]
From time to time, I plan to post old photos I took decades ago before digital cameras. I call this series From the Vault. These photos were taken at the Oregon sand dunes back in the late ’90s. I had an old point & shoot camera back then that I had painstakingly saved up to […]
This photo was shot using a Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens that I recently purchased on eBay.
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 […]
I spent 4 days at YMCA Camp Chief Hector in February 2014. It was my first time camping in winter and luckily we had great weather. The camp’s location in Bow Valley Provincial Park is absolutely gorgeous and there’s a beautiful view of Mount Yamnuska from the camp. I shot 8 rolls of film while […]
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.
