*** A Film Photography Project ***
So this is a bit of an accompaniment piece to my last post as I had to change a roll of film on location to get a few more shots of the Civitan Club building in Smiths Falls. I had been shooting a roll of Kodak TMAX 400 and the roll abruptly ended at 24 frames… I was confounded and confused for a moment thinking my trusty F4 had jammed up or something and then quickly realized after rewinding the film that I had indeed loaded up a 24 exposure roll! I always try and shoot 36 exposure film as…Keep reading
The first post of 2023 and the first film photography post in almost 6 months! It has been far too long but alas I am making the time again to sit down and start writing about my photographic adventures or mis-adventures as they sometime become. So we are going to get things rolling again with a roll of film that I shot in the fall of 2021. My excitement for photography was running high at that time. I was working part time through the pandemic and found myself pouring my extra time back into photography. I had time to play…Keep reading
Edit; this was written a month ago now… Summertime seems to move faster than any other time! It’s late July and I am spending some time up at a friends cottage.

Earlier this spring I had picked up a roll of Cinestill 800 35mm film. I had seen articles, youtube videos and instagram posts of people using this film over the past year or so and I knew I had to get a roll and test it out for myself. Typically when I am trying out a new film stock I will use…Keep reading
As I am slowly getting into medium format photography I am also discovering the different film stocks that are available. Of course one of the big ones is the “new” Kodak Gold 200 film in 120 format. Well I got a hold of a roll a few weeks ago and loaded up the Seagull and went for a little bike ride/photo mission through the industrial park not too far from where I live. It was a nice evening, the sun was hanging low in the sky as I headed out. As always I didn’t really have any expectations. I am…Keep reading
