It was fun meeting up with Alex, along with her husband Alan who is a good friend of mine and has also appeared in the Only Cafe Portrait Series himself. Als always for this project I used my Sony A7ii camera and vintage Helios 44 lens.
This storefront in the Junction neighbourhood in Toronto caught my eye.
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.
I was outside the Art Gallery of Ontario recently, and saw some interesting reflections. I took a few images with my iPhone and straightened the perspective to some degree. But I do like the crooked look.
This past Wednesday I was out at Bluffer’s Park with photography friends. It was a very calm day at the lake, with a very hazy bright sky.
In a park not far from home, in May of this year. I shot both images with my Rolleiflex 3.5E3 camera on Ilford Delta 400 film.
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.
I do shoot digital as well as film, and also like shooting with my iPhone! (I am no purist!!). And on the iPhone I do enjoy the Tintype app, among others. I took this image near Tobermory earlier this year.
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.
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.
