My final outdoor adventure of the year will be released on my YouTube channel soon! This was filmed on November 9th and it started to snow real bad that I had to unfortunately cut the day short of exploring on an idea that I have had dancing in my head. Regardless of that, I still managed to feel it out, (I don’t give up that easy). This is part one and part two will continue in the studio.
I was so lucky to have gotten the chance to experience using this discontinued film. I never thought that I would ever use Polaroid film again after Fujifilm had announced the end of their FP-100C instant film production. It is always a gamble when buying any kind of film off of Ebay, especially when it is a film that has not been in production for quite some time. I decided to have a little fun with a few sheets. […]
In August of this year I had announced that one of my camera builds had been selected and published on Homemadecamera.com‘s first Homemade Camera Podcast Zine. The Zine is now available in print and I cannot wait to get it in the mail.
Yes, I took a Yashica D camera apart! Not to worry though because it is not any of the ones that I presently use, it is one that was bought off of Ebay and had arrived broken. I had replaced this broken one with a Yashica D Grey, so all is good. The issue with this broken Yashica D was the shutter release button, it just didn’t work other than jiggle around in it’s place. At first I was going […]

Video Premiere Launch: October 27th, 2019 at 12pm. This might be one of the last outdoor adventures of the season and I thought it would be interesting to premiere this pinhole self-portrait adventure. I enjoy presenting my photographic pursuits and adventures as a unique experience, an experience that is raw and real and in that moment because it is exactly what it is for me each and every time….an experience. My relationship with art, photography and creativity has grown and […]
I did mention in my previous journal entry that I had found an exposed roll of film in my Yashica D and that I had let it soak in coffee. I never did get to share other images from that roll, so here they are:
As usual, my curiosity never stops. Last weekend when I was about to load the Yashica D, I found an already exposed film inside which was really strange because I never have done that before, (yes, there is a first time for everything!), and I am one who always processes my films the minute I get home. Yesterday I decided to process the film and to be quite honest I did not even remember what images were on it. Of […]
I spent a whole day at Park Forest Ouareau to get in some self-portraits with the Yashica D and a few rolls of Ilford’s FP4 120 film. As we know it, the cold weather will soon take over completely and I have been making sure to get out as much as possible. The day started off pretty cold but warmed up quickly with the high and low terrain that was more rugged than I had expected. It was a little […]
I had not yet begun exploring the world of analog photography at the time Ilfochrome/ Cibachrome, was still in production but once I did get hooked I researched a lot on the different papers and films that are available today as well as the ones that have been discontinued. When I started to think of processing color films, it lead me to the a color spectrum that I wish was still available today. According to what I have read online, […]
