*** A Film Photography Project ***
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. It’s hot and sunny, peak summer time here in this part of the world and I am squeezing in as much summer activity as I can. Swimming, hiking, canoeing, camp fires and of course the precious cottage time that I am enjoying at the moment. I’ve just had a quick dip in the lake to cool down and am sipping on a strong cup of coffee and thinking about…Keep reading
After taking a couple of weeks off in June for a little personal time I am back again. I haven’t stopped shooting film, I just had to unplug from the computer for a bit and take a break. 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.

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
To be fair I’ve had this Vivitar PS80 for a couple of years now and haven’t really given it much of a chance. I’ve tossed a couple of rolls through it and that’s about it. Older film too, I guess I figured it wouldn’t be worth shooting “good” film in it… The camera is ridiculously simple to use. You just need to push a little slider over to uncover the lens, and then point and shoot. It has autofocus, autoexposure, auto flash, autowind and dx film coding. There is a blue shutter release button on top. That is it for…Keep reading
Today we are looking at the second roll of film that I have shot with my Seagull TLR camera. I mentioned in my previous post that I got this second hand last fall and it is my second medium format camera. I was happy with the images from the first roll and happier with the images from this second roll! I had figured out how the camera worked shooting the first roll so when it came time to load up that second roll I was ready for it.. or so I thought. It turns out that I didn’t feed enough…Keep reading
