The Agfa Super Isolette with its Agfa Solinar 75 mm f/3.5 lens is considered by many to be the finest 120 folding camera ever made so my expectations of this camera were very high when I purchased it from the well know folder repairman Certo6 in the US. This 1955 German-made camera has excellent build […]
I had purchased a couple of rolls of JCH Streetpan 400 in 35mm but held off shooting the film until I had an opportunity I felt was worthy of its Streetpan name. That opportunity came in…
After shooting strictly with a point and shoot camera, I was gifted a Minolta XG-M and Minolta MD Rokkor 50mm f/1.7 kit by a friend. I found myself reaching for film instead of digital for my personal work more and more after that. Digital was beginning to bore me, editing had began to feel cumbersome, […]
In March of 2018, I was heading to Oakland and San Francisco for a photo work assignment and decided to do some street photography on my time off while I was up there.
I love the Lomography Diana Mini and I’ll stand by this little plastic gal with all my heart, even when nobody else wants to.
Whenever I go out shooting with film, which seems to be a lot these days, I take my trusty Nikon F2 and the 50mm F/1.4 AI-S. Can I just say that this camera is a bit of a beast?
For this roll of Kodak Portra, I set out to shoot a series of self-portraits featuring flowers and foliage with my new (to me) Nikon FM and a Nikon Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 lens.
A couple of weeks ago, stuck with no gigs for the week and suffering through the anxiety-filled boredom that freelancing can suddenly bring, I decided to fly to New York (only an hour from Toronto) to shoot some street shots.
Combining two recent trends, namely de-cluttering and a revival of mid-century technology, I rediscovered a beloved family camera, the Yashica Mat and some expired and now discontinued Kodak Plus X 120 film.
After all the roads and film stocks I’ve shot with over the last couple of months, all have lead to Eastman Kodak Double-X 5222. I’ve been searching for that go-to film by trying pretty much everything out there.
In April, I wrote a comparison of three bellows cameras from the 1950s I had bought on eBay: Agfa Record III, Voigtländer Perkeo, and…
The second day of sunshine… What bliss… It has been dark and grey for a couple of weeks. A huge contrast to the nice and warm temperatures of southern Vietnam where I had been.
First, let me say that the Nikon F4 gets no respect. I am just going to lay that out there. Okay, so now on to the film. All of my film problems can be traced back to The FPP…
All these frames were shot at the white sands national monument while on a road trip in the States (my family are all American – this road trip happens bi-annually). We were driving the length of Route 66…
Some time ago I combined two new-for-me techniques in one batch of the film developing process – semi-stand and processing C-41 film in B&W chemistry.
In Japan, Fujifilm NEOPAN 100 ACROS was the least expensive black and white film. However, with the film no longer being made, I needed to find a replacement. This is where New Oriental Seagull 100 comes in. This film is nearly the same price as ACROS at about $6.50 US dollars (650 JP yen). I […]
I bought my Rolleiflex K4B off eBay about a year ago and got a pretty sweet deal for it. Since then, it has become pretty much my favorite camera to shoot personal work with. Mine came with the Carl Zeiss Tessar 75mm f/3.5 lens, and the images it produces are just stunning. Lately, I’ve been […]
I’ve always wanted to try out Fujifilm Natura 1600 film since over ten years ago when I first saw a photographer using it on their Flickr page.
I just recently got this Minolta SRT201 from an old friend who didn’t have the time nor the space to make a home for her.
I had been to Cuba about five times since 2014 before my most recent trip last year to Viñales, in the far western province of Pinar del Río.
