I found a new film to play with: Fomapan 200 Creative from the Czech Republic. I love the tonality with this emulsion. I rated it a little slower at 160 and processed in Rodinal 1:50 for eight minutes. I used a Leica M3 with a Canon 50 f1.4 and a Voightlander Skopar 35 f2.5 lens,it is a good camera/film combination and a great weekend for shooting.
I got back into my printing groove over the past few nights. I used 5x7 Ilford Ilfobrom Double weight flat FB paper developed in Ilford PQ universal paper developer. I get a very retro look with this paper finish and I don't think it's available anymore. It's a change of pace printing with 8x10 glossy which is my prefered format. The top photo is my brother's dog Rufus having a quiet moment and the bottom two photos were taken in Bronte Harbour last Summer. Warm weather is just around the corner.
I am the media relations contact for Picture the Cure 2007 a photo exibition and silent auction with the proceeds going to The Canadian Cancer Society. The Exhibit runs from July 4 to July 30, 2007 at the Gallery Space at the Steam Whistle Brewing Roundhouse in the heart of Toronto. There will be a closing night gala on July 30, 2007, the silent auction will take place then.
