Portrait of Bill

The latest in my series of Natural Light/Available Light portraits with the Sony A7ii and Nikkor 50mm/f1.4 Pre-AI lens. This is my good friend and fellow photographer Bill Smith.

There is just something about the way this lens renders!

Portrait of a Friend

I was happy to get together with my good friend Ken last Saturday. We met up at The Only Cafe of course. Fairly dimly lit, so I ratcheted up the ISO on the Sony A7ii to 6400. Impressed with the lack of noise! The lens was an old Nikkor 50mm f1.4, mounted via adapter and shot wide open. Quite happy with this image!

Shooting Film on January 1st

Every year on January 1st I go out in the morning with a film camera, so whatever else happens in the year it will still be another year in which I shot film. One of my goals this year is to shoot more portraits, so from the roll I shot yesterday I am choosing a portrait of fellow film photographer Alan Gaunt, who came along with me and Bill Smith for the January 1st outing.

Kensington Market At Night

Lat evening I was in Kensington Market with my new Sony A7ii full frame digital camera. (Don’t worry, still mainly a film guy!). I got this camera as a platform for various lenses, and last night it was the Nikkor 20mm/f2.8 lens.

TTC Open House

This is my last film photo blog for a couple of weeks, but maybe there will be some digital/smartphone shots rom Croatia.

Recently, the TTC held an open house at one of its maintenance facilities. A fascinating tour!

All images taken with my Nikon F2A and 20mm/f2.8 Nikkor lens on Eastman Double-X film.

 

Inside the Cafe

Janice and I had breakfast in this cafe across the street from Notre Dame in Montreal on our recent trip. I would call this interior a glorious competition!
