Under a Bridge In the Lower Don Valley

I was out this past Sunday morning with my Mamiya RZ67 camera. It is large, fairly heavy and really needs to be mounted on a tripod. I have recently moved away from Large Format/4×5 (you can hear my reasons why on a recent episode of MPP) and am finding that shooting this camera on a tripod gave me everything I needed for that kind of experience, without the downsides.

One Model, Two Cameras

Yesterday I had a lovely shoot with my friend Zoe. I shot two cameras, my newly acquired Hasselblad 500 C/M, and my Mamiya RZ67. Both make great portrait cameras, and on a tripod the weight difference makes no difference. A portrait is not about the camera though, and just like last time, Zoe gave some beautiful and interesting expressions. More to come 🙂

Two More From the Cemetery

Some more images from last Sunday at the cemetery. These are from a roll of what I thought was Rollei Retro 400s, but it turns out it was 80s, so I was two stops under-exposed. I decided to do a two hour stand-develop in Rodinal as a push, and a lot of the roll turned out to be quite usable :-). All taken with my Mamiya RZ67, and 65mm/3.8 lens with 25A red filter





Last Post for 2015

It’s been an interesting year: my photography exhibit and the trip to Scotland were amazing highlights; the back problems not so much. For my last image of the year, I go back to the Beaches for an image created this past summer. Tomorrow it’s January 1st, so in the morning I will be going out somewhere to do some photography, as this has become my New Year’s Day tradition. Happy New Year!

Getting the Filter Right

I’ve always wanted to get a dramatic sky photo, and finally I’ve found the combination! Rollei Retro 80s film, plus a 25A red filter and Polarizing filter stacked together. I took this with my Mamiya RZ67 and 65mm lens early on a Sunday morning at the Beaches, with the sun at a right angle, for maximum polarizing effect.
