It's been a while since I've last posted. You can expect to see more here soon. I leave you with a photo I shot on my medium format Yashica-D.
Just over a year ago, I asked if any of my friends would be my guinea pigs for a film photo shoot. Tim and Becky jumped at the opportunity, and the resulting photo shoot was a blast. On June 9, I was honoured to be a part of their wonderful wedding as their photographer. It was a beautiful wedding, with the ceremony taking place at The English Inn in Esquimalt here in Victoria. The reception was nearby in the Rainbow Room at the The Chief and Petty Officer's Mess. In following with the theme of their photo shoot, I brought my film cameras along so I could run through a couple rolls. Thank you Tim and Becky for being two of the most awesomest people I know, and for always being the perfect photographic guinea pigs. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the entire bridal party for sitting on those rocks in the wind at Saxe Point, I hope you will enjoy those photos as much as I do.
You may or may not be aware that there is an iPhone App called "Hipstamatic". It adds the ability to apply "vintage-style filters". Many of those filters are designed to replicate cross processing, which is achieved by developing film through the opposite chemicals from normal (e.g. negative film through a positive process). A while back, I was given a few rolls of expired slide film by a friend, and I was told that I must get it cross processed when I had it developed. Well, this first roll was some slide film that expired way back in 1998, when digital cameras were still a thing of the future. I had no idea how it would look in the end, so I was just experimenting with things. Other than straightening some of these photos, they are straight from the lab-scans of the film. I seem to tilt my camera a lot, I think one leg is shorter than the other. ;)
I figure it's about time for another collection of landscape and nature shots. These were taken between February and April on both film and digital. Enjoy. These first two were shot on Fuji Superia X-TRA 400.
These next few were taken in the beautiful Gowland Todd Provincial Park while on a hike with my good friend Adam Lee.
These next two were taken in the very cool community of Fernwood here in Victoria.
Clare and I took a walk around Cedar Hill Golf Course one beautiful evening, and these were a few snaps I grabbed.
The rest of these shots were taken while my sister was visiting Vancouver Island. This first group was shot on digital.
The rest of these were shot on one of my favorite films, Kodak Ektar 100 with my "new" Nikon FE2.
