Kingston

A couple weeks ago, my wife and I celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary, so we dropped the kids and dog off with family and took a trip to Kingston, Ontario – about a 2 hour drive from home. We spent the evening walking around the downtown and ducking in and out of a couple shops……

Port Hope Beach Through a Pinhole

On a recent photo excursion to Port Hope, I brought along both my Crown Graphic 4×5 and my new Holga 120WPC. I loaded up the pinhole camera with a couple rolls of Ultrafine Extreme 100 and mounted the camera on a tripod and made exposures anywhere between 4 and 10 seconds. I really like the…

New York City – iPhone Shots

Out of sheer convenience, I probably took as many photos with my phone as I did with my film cameras. I did consciously use my phone to take photos where my other cameras wouldn’t do, such as a panoramic or tricky lighting situations and simply because I wanted the ability to share my experiences instantly……
