The Beaches Through a Red Filter

Yes, I love the look of skies darkened by a red filter. To me it seems like a sense of stark drama is created, a hidden eeriness is revealed. These four images are from a recent trip down to The Beaches.

I was out in the Beaches last Sunday and snapped this image quickly before the motorcyclist could drive off, so I wasn’t looking closely at the background. When I scanned the negative and looked at the image I was amused by the mismatch of foreground and background.

The Flatiron building in Toronto is one of the most photographed buildings in the city, but I don’t think I’ve ever taken an image of it that I really liked, until now …

Since I was point the 15mm/f4.5 Superwide Heliar up in the air, I got lots of distortion, but I like how it worked out.

A Trip To Elora

I was in Elora recently and decided to go with the Voigtlander R2M kit, and Rollei Retro80s and SuperPan 200 films

Dark Sky

I love the combination of Rollei Retro 80s and a red filter (and a polarizer). I love a dark sky and drama!
