RedPath Sugar Refinery

Yesterday morning down around the RedPath Sugar Refinery the light was amazing; a bright, low-angled light applied a stark clarity to everything it touched. I was shooting Rollei Retro 80s film, using a red filter to darken the skies and exaggerate the contrast.

Another Fish Creek Image

Work has made it a challenge to blog for a few days, but hoping to change that! In the meantime, another image from Fish Creek Provincial Park in Calgary. Considering how sunny and comparatively warm it was there this past week, it’s hard to believe it was this cold and wintery just a few weeks ago.

The World of a Child # 2

Another image from my shoot last Saturday. This image was taken with my Nikon F4S and the Nikkor 105mm/2.5 lens, which is one of the greatest portrait lenses of all time.

End of a Roll

If you’re a 35mm film shooter you’ve been here: you have a couple of blank frames on a roll of film, and you don’t want to waste them so you look for something, anything to shoot to finish the roll. That was the case for this image: I wanted to see the other shots on the roll, had a few shots left, so on a day where the sun shone brightly onto a table in our sunroom, I got the idea of putting a mask in the sunlight and shooting it with my 55mm Micro-Nikkor macro lens. Very happy with the results!

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.
