The Green Room (Laugh).

From the archives (2015) – never posted until now.

Mamiya 7II, Mamiya 43mm, and Kodak Portra 400.

Turning the corner, again.

This is a revisiting of a similar shot, taken with much different equipment, on a different day.

Downtown.

Test shot Mamiya 7 + 65mm.

I think I may have finally found my “one lens solution” for the Mamiya 7.

On another note, spring has FINALLY arrived in Toronto!

Blue and Red (Test Shots, Mamiya 7).

Test Roll #1, Frames #4 and 5 of 10.

In the first shot I was re-familiarizing myself with the dynamic range, in the second the bokeh.  In both I was testing for the focus accuracy of my rangefinder.

1/125 | f/4 for both images.

So far, so good.

Summer.

It started snowing here last week.  It’ll be a long time before we get back to this…

Summer

Toothless and cyanotic.

One thing about the 6 x 7 format I really appreciate is that everything is depicted in a “grand” way (even blue tongues!) and truer to life vs. the 35mm format.

The effect is always visible to my eye, but becomes more apparent  when comparing images from the two formats in a side-by-side fashion.

Tousled Reflections.

At the interface of Spring and Summer.
