Finding the Light

Another image from my recent shoot with Jennifer at U of T. It was around 7 pm, so the sun was lower in the horizon. The sunlight was coming at an angle through trees, which made for some great lighting!

A Great Combo

I am seriously liking the combination of the 105mm/f2.5 Nikkor portrait lens, and Polypan F film (developed in Tmax developer 1:9 for 8.5 minutes at 20 degrees). It seems made for subjects such as the lovely Jenna (taken yesterday in High Park in Toronto)

Frozen Orca’s

On King Street, east of Dufferin is the remnant of a rail line, likely a spur to service a factory. All that is left now is what you see below. To me, it seemed like a pair of killer whales, frozen in time.

Finally, back to film!

It’s been a while, but I finally have a traditional film-based image 🙂

I was out shooting yesterday, with a Nikon F and F2 in downtown Toronto. I’m a sucker for these geometric-based compositions!

Lines and People


It’s been a chilly weekend (by Toronto standards) by that hasn’t gotten in the way of doing some street photography. I saw this man carry a fair sized dog, and managed to pop off a quick image.
