Out yesterday again with the Sony A7ii. The bright sun made plenty of opportunities for backlighting.
It has been a while; let’s just say the summer has been challenging, and some things have suffered as a result, like my photo blog. I will try to do better.
I was out this afternoon with a lens I have not used in a while: my Lensbaby Sweet35. I love its primitive characteristics, and the way colour seems to wash through the image.
I am really liking the Canon F-1n I got recently. This was the camera I lusted after as a teen in the 1970’s. Using my 200mm/f4 FD S.S.C. lens. Film was Fomapan 100.
I haven’t been to Toronto’s Distillery District for around a year or so, because of COVID. That changed late last week when I went down early on a sunny morning, with my OM-1 kit and some Fomapan 100.
I was in the Beaches again this past weekend, and my lens of choice was my 58mm/f2 Helios 44/2. I love the overall look and swirl of this lens when used wide open!
I shoot mainly film, but also digital and iPhone, and I have decided to stop listing the gear I used to create an image unless it is key to the story. If you are are really curious about the gear, just leave a comment and I will respond.
There is too much digital vs film, brand x vs brand y, format vs. format nonsense going on. I am getting off that bus.
These two images come from a walk yesterday in the midday heat.
Seen at lunch time on our front porch.
Two close-ups of statues by graves in a cemetery in Toronto. Sad, weathered expressions, waiting for hope.
Both images taken with my Olympus OM-4T, on Rollei Retro 80s film, developed in Rodinal
I like shooting flowers earlier in the day, when a direct sun is not beating down. All images taken with my Sony AR7ii, and an Olympus Zuiko 50mm/f3.5 macro lens.
I was out recently early in the morning. It had rained overnight, and I love the look of raindrops on plants, especially in black and white.
