Toronto Film Shooters Meetup – Spring 2017

This past Saturday my friend Paul and I attended the Toronto Film Shooters Meetup. This is a group of dedicated film photographers that meet every 3 months of so to do a photo walk in the Toronto area. I had brought along my Fed 3a and a Kodak Instamatic X15 camera, both loaded with Ilford HP5 Plus…

Kodak Tourist II – First Thoughts

This is a camera that my dad gave me a couple years ago. It was my grandfathers camera, and he bought it back in the early 1950s shortly after my aunt was born… so yeah… it’s pretty special to me. This camera takes 620 film… which is basically just 120 film on a thinner, smaller…

Blue Mountain
