The first rolls of film that I shot with in Stanstead, Quebec were 35mm. This is not the actual format that I will be using for this project but I thought it would be best to start off with as I explored the space for the first time. As I ventured about I comfortably fell into a zone which helped me to see and develop a sense of direction and at the same time discover interesting spaces that later on […]

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.
Stanstead was not the only place I visited over the weekend, I also went to Rawdon. Rawdon is a place that I visited once before and have been meaning to go back to. I remember that I had shot a few rolls of expired color film which I processed in black and white chemistry. I never scanned them and for obvious reasons as I had sat there looking at the negatives with pure discontent. Rawdon is known for it’s beautiful […]
On Saturday I headed out on the road and this time in new territory, Stanstead, Quebec. As some of you may have noticed, I have been quite obsessive about going on road trips. The great thing about this obsession is that I have begun to see a project within it. It is still forming in my mind but I know that my objective will be to document the farm lands within Quebec. I was very lucky to have gotten the […]
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 […]
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. […]
