Sunset over the Toronto skyline, as seen from the Polson St. pier last weekend. This was taken on Fuji Acros with the Rolleiflex, which was securely mounted on my big heavy Manfrotto tripod. Exposure time was about one second at f/11.

A flower growing in our front garden — originally taken with the Nikon D70s, then processed in PS as a “split-toned” B&W image through the magic of the Select Colour Range tool.
Posted as-is from a drugstore scan (1500×1000 pixels) of cross-processed Ektachrome GX film. The scans were mostly blown out, but I liked the look. They say that Kodak film works “best” at cross-processing. I have a lot of 120-format Provia lying around, so it might be time to test that hypothesis. I shot this at…
Another picture from the one-roll project, taken with the Nikon FG and Sigma 18-35mm lens on Efke 25.
Trying to make an interesting but non-overwrought rendition of lilies in B&W by starting with a colour image (from the Rolleiflex, Fuji NPZ film) and doing selective B&W conversion to tone gradients based on colour ranges. Enough Photoshop-speak for you?
Wheel of Light
I’ve felt a bit uninspired lately, so I decided to kick-start what’s left of my artistic brain by giving myself a project. For about a week, I carried around a deliberately limited rig (the Nikon FG loaded with a single roll of ultra-slow Efke 25, mounted with a slow and somewhat unsharp Sigma wide-angle zoom).…
Ruins at Kingsmere
At Kingsmere (the estate of Prime Minister Mackenzie-King), Gatineau Park, Quebec.
From our recent short jaunt to Wakefield, Quebec. I mostly shot colour film on this trip, but did manage to squeeze in two rolls of Neopan 400 that I then massively under-developed (in Instant MYTOL). I’m 95% sure that the problem is with my thermometer, which seems to be reading everything 3-4 degrees colder than…
As usual, this one started out in colour (Rolleiflex, Fuji 160C) and made its way to B&W.
From a very early morning walk around the neighbourhood with my little one-year-old. Taken with the Olympus Stylus Epic on Fuji Reala 100 film, scanned at the lab.
