Getting the Expression

Every now and then a candid portrait clicks. 🙂 Taken at a recent meet-up of Toronto film shooters.

Another Gazebo shot

Yes, I like shooting gazebos! They have such an interesting geometry about them that I can’t resist, and there is no 12 step program for this particular architectural fetish 🙂

I’m also spending more time shooting large format, and enjoying the slower, more thoughtful process.

More 4×5

In addition to shooting the 1860’s lens last Sunday in the Beaches, I also shot a comparatively more modern lens on the Speed Graphic: my 127mm/4.7 Ektar. I need to spend more time with this lens!

Another Film

I recently got a few rolls of ILford FP4+, a film that was a competitor to Kodak Plus-X (when it was still around). All in all, a nice emulsion.
