Paris (Ontario)

This town in Ontario won’t get as much press as the Paris in France, but is still worth visiting! I was out there earlier this year with some photography friends and had a lovely day.

I took all of these images with my Olympus OM-2n with a 25A red filter, on Rollei Retro 80s film.

Mottled Sunlight

Earlier this year I was in downtown Toronto on Front Street with my Sony A7ii camera. At the right time of day, and bright sunlight you can get some interesting building reflections. I lined up the sun behind the construction crane, and added the equivalent of a dark red filter in post.

Elora, Ontario

Earlier this spring I went to Elora, Ontario along with a few other photo friends. Walking in the park near the river gorge, the light was subtle, dim, and quite atmospheric.

A Cold Day in Tobermory

Earlier this year I spent a couple of days in Tobermory, Ontario. The first day was unseasonable cold, with rain, mist and fog. It made for some great atmosphere in the harbour though! I took both images with my Rolleiflex 3.5E3, using Ilford HP5+ film, pushed one stop to EI 800.

Rollei Retro 80s as Infrared

Recently I have started using Rollei Retro 80s film with an IR 72 filter again, for an infrared look. On a bright sunny day at midday I rate the combo at EI 2, typically shooting a 1/2 second exposure at f/16. Even though this is not a true infrared film stock, I do like the look I get.
I took both images with my Rolleiflex 3.5E3 twinlens reflex. TLR’s and rangefinders are great for infrared work, compared to SLR’s as the IR 72 filter is almost completely opaque to visible light.
