Helicopter Fish Stocking – Part 2

As if I would go helicopter stocking and not bring a film camera. Wasn’t sure I’d actually have time to use it, but near the end of the day, I managed to run a roll of Kodak Portra 160 through the Pentax 6×7. Below are a couple shots that turned out. Camera: Pentax 6×7 Lens:…

2018 Family Christmas Tree

When I pulled this roll out of the developing tank, I was quite disappointed. The negatives were very thin with almost no detail. Not sure exactly what happened, but I suspect the camera was underexposing due to an old battery in the light meter. In all fairness, it’s been using the same battery I put…

Warsaw Caves

Warsaw Caves Conservation Area is a favourite spot of mine. We’ve been coming here for as long as I’ve lived in the area. This time we had the entire place to ourselves. The caves themselves are quite small, but fun to explore if you like getting dirty – which on this particular day I did…

Trent University

Back in June when my friend Paul was visiting, we spent an hour or so up at Trent University doing some more photography. Trent is a favourite go-to spot of mine to get out shooting and test new cameras… especially in the evenings during the summer when it feels like a ghost town. The architecture…
