Early Morning in the Scarborough Bluffs

This morning my good friend Ori and I met up for an early morning shoot in Scarborough bluffs in Eastern Toronto. These two images were shot using my Nikon F4S, a 28mm/2.8 Nikkor lens, and an oddball film: Eastman 2366, a film meant for creating motion picture positives from negatives, but usable for still photography with developers such as Xtol.

Something Slightly Different

This image is from our trip to Niagara On the Lake this past weekend. It was a gazebo, so I had to shoot it, but to me the woman stretching out in front gives the image a slightly different, almost surreal aspect; it would be a very different image without her.

Ice at the Shore

Another image of a cold Lake Ontario shoreline. Even though it was a bright sunny day, using the very slow speed Eastman 2366 film (EI 15 or so), mean a rather slow shutter speed (around 1/30th of a second I believe)

Snow, Not Sand

I finally finished a roll of Eastman 2366 duplicating film yesterday, both started and finished at the shores of Lake Ontario in Toronto’s Beaches district. 2366 is a slow (EI 15) very sharp film that I am really learning to love the look of! In this image, a casual glance might lead one to think it was sand, but this is all snow, on a bitterly cold January day.

At the Beach

This morning I took advantage of a striking winter sun and went down to Sugar Beach in Toronto. Although the sun was bright the wind was bitter, and it was challenge using the camera with thick gloves on,

The film I used (for the first time) was Eastman Duplicating film 2366, a specialized stock with high contrast, high sharpness and very fine grain. I was shooting into the sun so there is some inevitable highlight blow-out but I think it suits the look.
