Oakville, Fall 2021, Ektar 100

Image
 Even with Kodak's colour film price increase, I can live without shooting Portra 400, Ektar 100 however, I'll be willing to pony up the cash every time. This film delivers the closest look to Kodachrome I'm going to find on the market, we know that slide film isn't coming back but we have something close to play with and it's a colour negative film. I think going forward I'm shooting my colour film through my autofocus bodies like the F90X, F100 and F4 (yes I shoot with manual focus lenses on that camera) for the more accurate matrix metering.  Camera: Nikon F90X, Nikkor AF-D 28-105 F3.5-4.5 Macro Zoom Lens.  Film: Kodak Ektar 100 

Toronto Returns to the Grey Season

Image
Wandering around the downtown core over the course of the afternoon, my first thought is all this talk of "Going back to office" is a bit of a farce, we're not going back to 2019. At the same time Toronto is headed back into the grey season.  Camera: Nikon FM2/T, Nikkor Ais lenses.  Film: Ilford HP5 400 pushed to 1600, HC110 B. 

Early Sunday Morning in the Beaches in October With Jess Hobbs.

 My friend Jess Hobbs has thriving film photography channel on YouTube. Of course spending a weekend in Toronto with the Classic Camera Revival team, she wanted to record a video for the channel before coming out to my house in Oakville for the podcast recording session.  It was a chance for Jess to create some content for the channel was well as exploring a neighbourhood she's seen in pictures on Facebook and Instagram. I have no idea when the video will upload to YouTube but I'm looking forward to seeing it.  Camera: Nikon FM2/T Nikkor Ais lenses.  Film: Kodak Ultramax 400.
