Havre de pêche de Tourelle Qc sur argentique

Lors de mon tour de la Gaspésie, j'ai trouvé ce petit port de pêche par pure hasard. Les pêcheurs, très sympathiques, étaient occupés à mettre en cale sèche leurs bateaux puisque la saison était terminée.

Photos prisent avec un rouleau de Fuji Acros 100 avec un Yashica D TLR. Voici les 12 poses.

Kingsey Falls car show.

Ok, it's not in Montreal but I am and sometimes I do get out of town. These were taken with a Yashica D using Kodak Ektar 100 color film and a light meter. Post edit was done in Gimp.  Enjoy.

Montreal's buildings and streets

Always inspired by the mix of old and new everywhere in Montreal every time I go out for a walk. Here are some shots taken with a Minolta 7000 using Ilford Delta 400.

Montreal Chinatown shot with a Yashica MG1

Last Thursday I set out to shoot an entire roll in an evening. My selection stopped at a roll of Ilford HP5 that is made to be pushed. So I loaded my MG1 and set it to 800 iso. The results are pretty good in my taste. Hope you enjoy.

Thanks for watching.

The Last Shoot at Geo Reed in Montreal with a 4X5 Speed Graphic

The Geo Reed abandonned plant is located the St-Henri district of Montreal. For the past few years it has become a Gallery for local and international Graffiti artists to showcase their work. Sadly all good things must come to an end and the building is set for demolition today.

So last saturday I decided it was now or never to haul up 20 lbs of gear in that Godforsaken place and take some 4X5 negatives with my Graflex Speed Graphic. Here are the shots, all 6 of them. Hope you enjoy.

This is what a 4X5 Graflex Speed Graphic looks like.
Thanks for watching.

Darkroom prints, fun with negatives

Finally got my darkroom up and running. Pulled out one of my favourite negatives and started making 5X7 prints of the races I caught at the Fall classic at Circuit Mont-Tremblant a few months ago. They are not perfect scans but they look a lot better in person on that glossy paper. This was done with the chemical emulsion process paper, not printed on an inkjet printer.

Thanks for watching

Graflex Speed Graphic, learning curve.

Still working on mastering the Graflex Speed Graphic. This beast was the choice of Pros back in the day and I have still a lot to learn on how to operate it properly. Here are some shots I have so far on 4X5 negatives.
