I have shot this still life in St. James cemetery before, but using the Lomography Petzval 55mm/f1.7 MKii transforms the scene for me.
Dana Kayes was my latest friend to take part earlier today in my Only Cafe Portrait Series. I am lucky to have so many smart friends!
This past Saturday my second guest of the day for The Only Cafe Portrait Series was my good friend Connie Crosbie. This was the very first frame I shot, and it turns out in the case the first frame was the best. I just love that smile!
My friend Richard Weiss was in town yesterday, so I had to snag him for my portrait project! He is a seriously smart guy!
A good friend of mine lent me his Lomography Petzval 55 MKII lens, and I went out with it for the first time earlier today. I love this lens! It uses the Petzval optical formula from the mid nineteenth century to create the characteristic swirl.
Today I was with my good friend John Russell. I first met John over thirty years ago.
My first out-of-towner for the project! My very talented photographer/videographer friend Jess Hobbs is in Toronto this weekend for Toronto Film Shooters / Classic Camera Revival podcast events, so of course a shoot at The Only Cafe was mandatory!
Earlier this week I was shooting on Dupont Street in Toronto. A gritty street that is undergoing transformation. All images taken with my Sony A7ii camera, and either Sony 28-70 lens or Voigtlander 15mm/f4.5 lens
Only Cafe Portrait Series #5. I had a great time this morning meeting up with my good friend (and extremely talented photographer) Jamie Marcellus.
As always for this project, shooting with my Sony A7ii and my old Helios 44 lens (58mm/f2).
If you are in the Toronto area and can get to the Donlands/Danforth area and would like to be part of this project, please let me know!
Out with my friend Alex Smith on a rather soggy morning, but safe inside the Only Cafe.
