Last Saturday I planned a road trip out to Oka Beach. The last time I had visited the village of Oka was about three years ago and I had told myself that I will have to make my way back there one day. The first time I had gone, my timing wasn’t right. I had arrived there at about lunch time and at that time people are everywhere. I did manage to get some photographs but not as many as […]
Here are the other side of photographs that tie in with my previous journal entry. There was a little experimentation in regards to presentation with this set. I wanted to see how I can possibly work with black and white and color images together having one accenting the other. (All black and white images were photographed with Ilford FP4 and the color photographs with Fuji Pro 400H). This project is far from complete and I am still in debate on […]
On my second visit to Stanstead, Quebec, I directed my focus mainly on the interiors of the barns and it was quite exciting because I was at a different farm than the first one. As an accent to the day I also photographed general outdoor scenery and had even gone back to the first barn from my first visit to re-photograph some areas. (All black and white images were photographed with Ilford FP4 and the color photographs with Fuji Pro […]
This is creative Assignment number four, “The Neglected Camera”, and in case you might be wondering about the first three assignments, visit here to find out. This assignment is about re-introducing yourself to a camera that you have had sitting in your closet. Trust me it is fun to do and if you are currently hitting that creative block, this just might help you out. No pressure. No timeline. Just creative fun.
It has been a long time since I have produced any kind of video. I have been wanting to re-shape my presence over at YouTube but it has been difficult since I cannot possibly film everything that I would like to on my own. My first initial dive into video was very experimental and my concern was never how professional it looked but that the story I was telling was clear in itself. I am hoping that with my self-teaching […]
The idea of building a darkroom has been dancing my mind for the last two years and lately I have been seriously thinking of just going for it. The space I have now does work but overall it is not optimal nor is it very safe. The way that things are now has me quite limited to how far I can actually go into the world of darkroom printing and it really has me bugged out. Wanting to take […]

Walking through the pathways at Parc des Rapides, I came across a species of bird, that was swooping and diving about and looking real pretty, (the Common tern). They were fast…and I was fast enough to catch ’em! ___________________________________ (again, sorry for the bad quality) I was lucky to have been in the right place at the right time to have witnessed these speedsters in the sky and to have also witnessed a Great Blue Heron. ____________________
This weekend was amazing and with the perfect weather to boot. Saturday was the most exciting because of my revisit to Stanstead, Quebec and on Sunday my friend and I decided to trek out to a place we had briefly visited before, Parc des Rapides. I think this is one of the most beautiful Parcs I have been to so far, beauty is everywhere. It is known to be an ideal spot to see the Lachine rapids up close […]
It has been a while since I have been thinking of getting a medium format camera that is not a twin reflex. Originally I thought of the Pentax 6×7, but as I researched I grew towards either the Pentax 645N or the Mamiya 645. Can you guys help me out? Which would you go for and why? Please share your thoughts down below. Thank you.
I wanted to share my experience differently this time with short video clips that I had taken throughout the day. I was not very successful at it, but will be for the next round. Sorry for the low quality.
