This is a photo from Central Memorial Park here in Calgary. I shot this shortly before it was announced that manufacturing of the Holga camera had ceased production. Of course, that decision didn’t last long and the Holga is still being made to this day. I like my Holga and should probably shoot with it […]
The front end of this hot rod was shot a few years back at the Show ‘n Shine in High River. I was in town photographing hot air balloons when I stumbled onto the Show ‘n Shine. I’m glad I did. It was a perfect way to end an already amazing day of photography: hot […]
These are photos of a few of the statues on the grounds surrounding Government Gardens in Rotorua, New Zealand. I quite like the way the first photo turned out. I love the look of Kodak Tri-X 400. It is an absolutely beautiful B&W film.
These are from a day trip I took with some photographers a few years ago. We drove along the Cowboy Trail through southern Alberta with many stops along the way. I shot mostly 35mm that day, but I also had my Belair X 6-12 Jetsetter & Instant Back with me. The first photo is from […]
🔗 Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day “We will extend the submission date to include your photograph in this year’s gallery until June 30th.” Tomorrow — April 26, 2020 — is Pinhole Photography Day! This will be my first time participating and I have plans to replace the lenses on two of my medium format cameras with […]
These lemurs were shot using Kodak Farbwelt 400. I’ve shot Kodak Farbwelt before and those photos turned out better. I’ve also photographed these lemurs on Fuji Superia 100. Those photos also turned out well. This is normal with expired film. As I’ve discussed before, the quality of expired film depends largely on how well it […]
I shoot a lot of expired film. Occasionally, I come across old film that has somehow managed to defy aging. This is usually because it was properly stored over its lifetime. Ferrania Solaris FG 100 and Perutz Primera 100 are two films I own that still look good a decade after the expiry date. And […]
🔗 Couch Camera Straps “These vintage camera straps are made from the actual 35 year old fabric used to upholster mid 1980’s Volkswagen cars like Golfs and GTI’s.” Couch takes old discarded vinyl and seatbelt fabric and uses it to create camera straps, guitar straps, and wallets. I love these straps. I own 4 Couch […]
I shot these in Fish Creek Park using discontinued and expired Solaris FG 100 film by Ferrania. I adjusted the ISO to 50 to compensate for the age of the film and I was really excited how the photos turned out. I wish I had more of this film.
I came across this man holding a guitar while walking down the street in Emeishan City. He seemed completely out of place and I was hoping he would play something, but sadly, this ‘Guitar Hero’ never played for us.
🔗 camerajunky Years ago, when I first started my adventure in film photography, I came across the camerajunky blog and saw that Gábor was giving away a few cameras — for free! Most were already spoken for but I emailed him anyway and he sent me a Praktica MTL3 with a 50mm f/1.8 Pentacon lens. […]
Sarah and I visited Emeishan City at the base of Mount Emei (aka Emeishan) in August. Mount Emei is one of the Four Sacred Mountains of Buddhism in China. We actually spent a few nights at Baoguo Temple (aka Baoguosi) and spent a day hiking up Mount Emei-–which was like climbing the world’s longest flight […]
I own a Diana F+ camera with ‘all the fixins’. I bought the deluxe kit one year and also picked up the Instant Back. The result is that it’s a lot of fun to use all the Diana’s lenses while shooting Instax Mini. I shot this at a friend’s place on Fuji Instax Mini (Star […]
🔗 FLAVR “The most comprehensive reference for 35mm film.” Ever wonder what photos shot with a particular film stock will look like? FLAVR, the Film Lovers Analogue Visual Reference, answers that question. It features photos taken with every film stock available at the time of publication in 2017. This is a great reference for film […]
I shot these on Kodak BW400CN, a chromogenic B&W film, which isn’t a true B&W film as it is designed to be processed in C-41 chemistry. I’m not a fan of this film and wasn’t sad to see Kodak discontinue its production. I shot these while wandering around Pearce Estate Park.
