This is a camera that was given to me from a very good friend about three years ago. I haven’t really used it that much but recently I started to bring it along with me on my road trips. Whenever I plan to go out on the road I almost always plan ahead deciding which camera I will bring as well as what my main focus will be to photograph. There have been times when I wished that I had […]
I know this is not new news, but it is good to hear about this comeback. Acros was a film that I enjoyed using specially since I am one who loves working outdoors in the middle of the day in harsh sunlight. This is the best film that I have ever used working in that type of lighting condition, so it is very good news for me. The first time I used this film was in 2012. I was not […]
As promised, here is the comparison between Ilford XP2 Super and Ilford FP4 Plus film. This comparison was done with the same camera, the Mamiya C330, in the same lighting conditions and processed in Ilfotec DDX. First, here are the images shot with Ilford FP4 film: Side by side comparison with Ilford XP2 Super: Let’s have a look at all three together: The difference between Ilford Delta Pro 400 and Ilford FP4 Plus is very slight.

When I decided to retry the Ilford XP2 Super film processed in black and white chemistry, I also wanted to see a comparison between other films that I had stored in the fridge. Ilford Delta 400 Pro is a film that I have been in debate of using as a black and white 400 ASA film. Ilford FP4 is my main slow speed film but it does not always cut it when higher sensitivity is needed. Having gone through […]
Welcome to part 2 of my Ilford XP2 Super film experience. Having been faced with a few issues with XP2 Super film, I decided to try the last roll that I had with a different camera with the intention of processing the film in black and white chemistry. For this final roll I decided to pull out the Mamya C330. This is a camera that I also truly love but have kept it as partner in the studio. […]
A road trip was planned weeks in advance for Saint-Jean-Baptiste holiday weekend which ended up being a four day weekend for me. I had such an enjoyable time, the weather could not have been any better. I hope you all had a chance to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather and weekend too. I have spoken about Ilford XP2 Super black and white film before and how much I really loved working with it and I knew that this […]
On May 20th, 2019, I presented a creative assignment that consisted of selecting six themes from a group of twelve with double exposures as the main approach. “Big & Small” was the first that I selected.
Here I am once again with a few Cyanotype tests. Initially, I was not placing these as tests, but as part of a new Cyanotype series . The thought of the creative idea I had seemed right, but after having gone through the complete process, my view completely changed. I thought that they would have come out with a little more visual punch. Since these photographs will no longer be part of a new Cyanotype series, I thought that I […]
On a previous journal entry,( here), I never mentioned my experience with Fuji Velvia 50 that I had paired up with my pinhole camera. I did not bring many sheets along with me, only 4, as my main focus was to photograph more water portraits to add to my portfolio. I was a little disappointed that only one from the bunch came out somewhat to my liking, next time I will prepare myself to solely focus on pinhole photography only…well […]

I headed out to visit some old places last weekend. It was the perfect opportunity to use my newly owned Yashica D that I had paired up with a few rolls of Fujifilm Pro 400H. I shot two rolls but I only had time to process one of them.
