Kawartha Camera Club

While I’ve still been shooting a lot of film lately, I haven’t been able to develop any at home due to running out of chemicals. There are few places in Canada that will ship the chemicals I need, so I was forced to order from thee US and it’s taken over 3 weeks for it…

Canadian Canoe Museum

It had recently occured to me that I haven’t used my digital camera since April because I’ve been shooting everything on film. Last week our camera club met at the Canadian Canoe Museum, a very poorly lit building for an evening of shooting. Most members brought tripods, but I opted to shoot handheld and just…

Close-Up Photography

Last week our camera club focused, (pun intended), on doing close-up or macro photography. It’s an area that I really haven’t done much of, but still enjoy.

Trent University

Last week, I headed out to Trent University in Peterborough to take some shots with the camera club. I’ve never really spent any time at Trent, but was immediately impressed by the buildings. There was a lot to look at and I didn’t get around to checking out everything, so I’ll most likely return. Below…
