5 Frames… At Pennsylvania’s Trolley Graveyard on ILFORD Delta 400 Professional (35mm Format / El 400 / Canon Elan IIe + Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II)

I had the opportunity to participate in an organized trip to a place called the Trolley Graveyard in Windber, Pennsylvania in December of 2020. As this was almost a year into the pandemic, I jumped at the idea of going anywhere at all. It was outside and everyone would be masked and distanced and so […]

5 Frames… Along downtown Toronto’s Bathurst Street on CineStill 800T (EI 800 / 35mm Format / Canon EOS 10)

Every Torontonian or Scott Pilgrim vs. The World fan should have some familiarity with the colourful Bathurst Street. As someone who lives alongside northern Bathurst, I had always wondered how I could channel my inner Edgar Wright and explore the area with my camera. The opportunity arose in Winter 2020, when I had to finish […]

5 Frames… With A Kaleidoscope Filter and Cinestill 50D (35mm Format / EI 50 / Canon AE-1 + Canon FD 50mm f/1.8)

When I started shooting analog, I mostly shot on Polaroid film and basically still do so today. Compared to 35mm film, shooting Polaroids is very straightforward, as the cameras only offer less than basic adjustment options – there is a lighten/darken wheel and a manual focus and that’s it. But lately, I felt the urge […]

5 Frames… Of trichromes with ILFORD FP4 PLUS (35mm Format / EI 125 / Canon EOS 1n + Canon EF 24mm f/2.8)

When my local Max Spielmann closed for lockdown, I lost my go-to for colour film processing. I couldn’t face going cold turkey, and haven’t got the sous-vide needed for colour processing at home. I can process black and white film though. So I started making trichromes. A trichome is a colour photograph made from three […]

5 Frames… Of the 2020 Montreal International Women’s Day march on ILFORD HP5 PLUS (EI 800 / 35mm Format / Canon F-1 Montreal 1976 Olympics edition)

One of the main reasons I decided to start shooting film was time. I feel film photography embodies a must-needed break from the frantic times we’re living (at least pre-coronavirus-wise). Composing, light metering, focusing… plus developing, scanning. Photographic film is a test to your patience, and, in the end, a great boost to your creative […]
