Outside Union Station

My first time using Fuji Superia 800. I liked the light in this image.

Portrait By the Window

I took this portrait recently with my 1945-50 vintage Voiglander Bessa 66 folding medium format camera. There were a number of reasons why this image should not have turned out: this is a scale focus camera (meaning you have to judge the distance), and I was shooting wide open; no margin for error. I was also pushing HP5+ to EI 1600 for the first time. But what I got was one of my favourite portraits of the year!

Texture

Another image from my recent test of Kodak TMax P3200 at The St. Lawrence Market. In certain spots I don’t mind the grainy texture of this film.

A New Old Film

Kodak has recently reintroduced a high speed film P3200. I went out with it for the first time today. This image is from inside the Eaton Centre.
