Yesterday morning in the Beaches. The light was soft and gentle, welcoming you into the day.
Tag: Rolleiflex 3.5E3
Withrow Park, Toronto
In a park not far from home, in May of this year. I shot both images with my Rolleiflex 3.5E3 camera on Ilford Delta 400 film.
A Cold Day in Tobermory
Earlier this year I spent a couple of days in Tobermory, Ontario. The first day was unseasonable cold, with rain, mist and fog. It made for some great atmosphere in the harbour though! I took both images with my Rolleiflex 3.5E3, using Ilford HP5+ film, pushed one stop to EI 800.
Rollei Retro 80s as Infrared
Recently I have started using Rollei Retro 80s film with an IR 72 filter again, for an infrared look. On a bright sunny day at midday I rate the combo at EI 2, typically shooting a 1/2 second exposure at f/16. Even though this is not a true infrared film stock, I do like the look I get.
I took both images with my Rolleiflex 3.5E3 twinlens reflex. TLR’s and rangefinders are great for infrared work, compared to SLR’s as the IR 72 filter is almost completely opaque to visible light.
Lines on the Beach
I took this image earlier this year on a grey day in the Beaches in Toronto. The lines in the fence reminded me of the COVID disease graphs that have become part of our reality since 2022.
The Indoor World #2
Two more images from my indoor shoot recently.
The Indoor World
Let’s face it: the light during winter is often rather dull and drab. Combine that with the need to stay close to home during the pandemic (and my ongoing back problems!) make looking for indoor subjects at home a good idea, so that is what I did yesterday afternoon. I’ll be doing more of this kind of thing this winter!
