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.

5 Frames… Wandering through Bangkok with CineStill 800 Tungsten (EI 1250 / 35mm format / Yashica FX-3 Super 2000)

I’ve always wanted to try CineStill 800T since it came out a few years ago. I’ve been delighted by all the pictures I’ve seen online; the saturated colors, the lack of anti-halation adding that unique glow to bright sources and the overall effect this incredible film can ensure in low light situations with artificial lights.
