The Weekly Photo – April 4, 2011

A week ago we had about six days of fog and frost and it was beautiful around Cochrane. So a couple of times Samantha and  I went out in the fog to make images. This one is of a local property that we have access to. I love the muted colours that fog gives, this is basically an in-camera capture  with the Rebel T2i but the image has an old-time sepia feel to it.

I also had my Holga, Bop, with me and thought I would compose the same image with this  medium-format ‘toy’ camera using Fujicolour Reala 100 film. Below is the result. What do you think? Is the digital capture more your cup of tea? Or does the look of the plastic lens Holga in square format with film look more appropriate for this scene?

Fabulous Film Fridays – March 18, 2011

On the January Winter tour we visited Nordegg, Alberta to make images of the historic downtown. For that shoot I grabbed Linny, the Linhof 6×12 panorama camera and Gail, the Fuji GA-645 medium format point-n-shoot and walked about snapping a few photos. Here are five of the resulting images:

The image above was with the Linhof using Fujichrome Velvia 50 slide film. The image shows the punch and saturation familiar to those who know Velvia.

The four photos above were all shot with the Fuji GA-645 and Fujichrome Reala 100 print film. Reala has a softer palette than Velvia and a wider tonal range. All the photos shots with Gail were hand-held.
