Thanks to my friend Bill Smith I tried Cinestill 50D film recently. This film is Kodak Movie stock, but with the black anti-halation backing removed, to make it easy and safe to process using standard C-41 chemistry. Both these images were taken at Harbourfront with my Nikon F2 SLR and 28mm/2.8 Nikkor lens.
This image is from the recent Toronto Film Photographer’s walk. My friend Alex is lining up a shot, and the geometry immediately caught my eye.
Nikon F2, 24mm/2.8 Nikkor lens
Kodak Tmax 400 film
I have made it a tradition the last few years to go out camera in hand on the morning of January 1st, regardless of the weather. This year was grey and cool for most of the day, but I still went down to the Beaches in the morning, with my Nikon F2 and three lenses. This image was taken with my 50mm/1.4 lens, on TMax 400 film.
The F2 is one of my cameras that doesn’t get used as much as it should as, and I have more than a couple of cameras in that category, so one of my photography goals for 2016 is, no buying of cameras or lenses (repair/replacement excepted, as needed)! Time to use more of what I have.
