Angrignon Park is a place that I like to visit quite often, it’s close to home, peaceful and free to enjoy. When I planned this walk-about one week ago I did not have any specific focus in mind, the day was just so beautiful and I had to get out to enjoy it. Once I arrived back home, I processed the films right away. Here are some of those results:
Today I processed the last roll from my Stanstead, Quebec road trip. I am really feeling this project and at the same time a little overwhelmed. I have not scanned any of the negatives yet but I did get a chance to view them closely on a light table and I am feeling good about what I have photographed so far. I am hoping to share some results within the next few days.
The Lachine Canal is a place I have not visited in a while. My friend and I decided to drive out there with our cameras hoping to find interesting things to photograph. I brought the Yashica Mat 124G with a roll of Ilford Delta 400 Pro. The place has changed since the last time I visited which was about 3 years ago, yet, it still has its charm and is a perfect place if you enjoy peaceful walks, biking or […]
After having tested this camera only once, I had come to the conclusion that the camera may be suffering from shutter lag. The Yashica Mat 124G has its own built in light meter which I did not use when testing the camera out. I had made the assumption that the light meter was most likely inoperative and measured my exposures as I usually do. I used different camera settings and shot in a variety of lighting scenarios and yet I […]
This is creative assignment that I have shared once before in March of 2015 and I thought it would be interesting to bring it back once again but with a few differences. Lacking Creative Inspiration? The idea is to stimulate your mind for seven days with that special tool in visible sight that enables you to be creative. Maybe it might spark a new idea? Maybe it might lead you to a place to photograph something […]
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 […]
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.
The summer has finally arrived and what better way to enjoy it by heading out on the road with a beautiful walk-around beast, the Yashica D. The Yashica D is my favorite medium format camera and for a long time, (about 2 years now), I have been trying to find a second one as a backup. I came close once and I was so put off because although the store owner said he would put it aside for me for […]
The first 4×5 processing tank that I had purchased a few years back was the Yankee Adjustable 4×5 Cut film Developing Tank. The only bonus that I found in using the Yankee Developing tank is that you can process up to 12 sheets in one run. The downside is the amount of chemistry needed for processing and the issue of uneven development at the edges of the film. The only way I found to bypass the uneven development issue […]
An introduction to set of color water portraits that I had photographed with an expired roll of E6 film. This was a huge failure, I screwed up big time on processing the film. My error was that I forgot to rinse the film after the first developer, yikes! I only realized this mistake after pouring the now contaminated color developer back into its bottle with its reserve. At that point there was nothing I could possibly do about it […]
