In July 1991, the Stein Valley ‘Voices for the Wilderness’ Festival had relocated to Seabird Island. I met up with some friends at the festival that weekend and shot these photos of the guys doing some face painting and body art. These were taken with my old point & shoot camera and a roll of […]
I went hiking up to Widgeon Falls last summer with my best friend. Widgeon Falls is located in Pinecone Burke Provincial Park in BC. I’ve done this canoe trip on Widgeon Creek and hike up to the falls many times before and I am never disappointed by the beauty of the park. Up at the […]
I took a trip this summer down to Nanton, Alberta to the Bomber Command Museum and while I was there came across these Packards on display. These were shot using FPP RetroChrome 160 film that was then cross-processed. I love Ektachrome and FPP RetroChrome is nothing more than expired government-surplus Ektachrome 2239. I thought these […]
I went to France this summer and had the time of my life! These were taken in Paris on the Pont Neuf (new bridge) where it crosses the Île de la Cité. The Pont Neuf is the oldest bridge in Paris. There is a platform there called la Place du Pont Neuf with a statue […]
Since today is Halloween, I thought I’d post a few photos of cosplay. I shot these at the 2014 Calgary Comic Expo. The last photo is of the Sons of Fenrir. They are reenactors who portray 9th century Viking / Norse culture. The detail of their costumes and campsite is pretty amazing and they reenact […]
I bought a Smena 35 online for super cheap. It has a lot of manual settings and is fun to shoot. These are from the first roll I ran through it and you’ll notice a lot of lens flare in the photos. These were all shot at Fish Creek Park.
I bought a used Lomo LC-A on eBay because I couldn’t afford an LC-A+. Unfortunately, despite the seller claiming the camera was in great condition, it was not. The film counter doesn’t work and there’s something wrong with the shutter. It randomly does not fire. I’ve tested this camera with fresh batteries and I can’t […]
I shot these selfies with my Praktica MTL3 and a Pentacon 50mm f/1.8 lens that I received for free! How I got this camera is a great story and I’ll tell it one day, but for now I thought I’d post the selfies. These were shot on Kodak Ektacolor Pro Gold 160 GPX that I […]
One of my favourite places to shoot photos is in Union Cemetery. I love the rolling hills, trees and the view of the city. The cemetery is filled with history as well as many deteriorating headstones made from sandstone. Sandstone is very soft and does not withstand weathering over time. I shot these with a […]
I also bought an Instant Back for my Belair X 6-12 Jetsetter. It’s a lot of fun (my niece and nephew love it!) even though it’s not the easiest thing to use. Fuji Instax film is notoriously sensitive to light and even though it’s rated at ISO 800, I think it behaves more like ISO […]
More shots from around Camp Chief Hector including the adventure playground. These were shot on Fomapan Action 400 and it’s become one of my new favourite B&W films. I just love the deep blacks that it produces. Fomapan Action 400 and Kodak Tri-X are two film stocks I can’t live without.
These canoes were shot at Camp Chief Hector this year using my newly-acquired Canon Canonet QL17 Giii and Fuji Velvia 100. I love the pink tones that cross-processed Velvia 100 creates!
I took these back in June using my Canon EOS 3 and a roll of Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 film. I love the golden yellow and orange tones of this film! To get this effect, I shot this film at ISO 50. The penguins in the pictures are Humboldt penguins. They are native to Chile […]
These were shot at Heritage Park at the start of summer using Adox Color Implosion film. I love this film because it has the right amount of grain giving it a vintage look from the ’70s. These were all shot at box speed (hence the cooler tones), but if you shoot this film at ISO […]
Here are another two photos from Ralph Klein Park shot with my Superheadz Ultra Wide & Slim. When I got this roll back from the lab, I discovered some weird double exposures on the film. I have no idea how it happened except that it must have already been present on the film when I […]
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 Past. 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 […]
