Yesterday I was out with some of my photography friends at a cemetery in the East end of Toronto. It a was a brilliantly sunny day, and the combination of the bright white snow and the dark sky (courtesy of the combination of a 25A red filter and Rollei Retro 400S film) provided a look I really liked. Images created with Mamiya RZ67 6×7 medium format camera and a 65mm/3.8 wide-angle lens.
It’s hard to beat black and white for capturing the texture of wood. In this image from Riverdale Farm I used my Mamiya 645 Pro TL camera and Kodak Tmax 100 film developed in Rodinal, a developer known for enhancing sharpness (at the cost of increased grain, which is not really an issue with slower speed film and larger medium format negatives). I love the combination!
Three years ago I worked with Amy Braun as a model, and today I want to congratulate her as a published author! Her urban fantasy story Call From the Grave has just been published on Kindle. I read it last night, and was really impressed (and I have read a lot of Fantasy and Science fiction in my time). I would highly recommend her writing. Well done Amy!

Another image of Jill, taken with my Mamiya 645 Pro TL medium format camera, then scanned and post processed. Jill has a timeless elegance about her, which I tried to capture with the retro look.
