52:500c – Week 21 – Welcome to the Roc

Welcome to the Roc, no, not The Rock (and now you all have Sean Connery’s voice in your head and you’re welcome), but The Roc, or Rochester, New York. While today the city is a far cry from the booming industrial and photographic centre it once was. The city still has a charm to it.…

52:500c – Week 17 – No Place I’d Rather Be

If you gave me a chance I would take it It’s a shot in the dark but I’ll make it Know with all of your heart, you can’t shake me When I am with you, there’s no place I’d rather be N-n-no, no, no, no place I’d rather be — Clean Bandit – “Rather Be…

52:500c – Week 15 – A Fort Named George

If there’s one thing that is awesome about the historical reenactment hobby is that you get to spend a lot of time at some of the sites that are a part of Canadian History. Fort George in Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario. This beautiful late 18th century fort was built following the American occupation of Fort Niagara across…

52:500c – Week 14 – Just Won’t Quit

Just Won’t Quit. Originally I had planned to go down into the gully behind the Sheridan Trafalgar campus where there is some nice hiking trails to show that yes, it’s April and there’s snow on the ground still, that winter just won’t quit. However after the failure of week 12 and the not so great…

52:500c – Week 13 – Lovely Downtown

My soul starts spinning again I can’t stop feeling, no, I won’t stop feeling And the fun’s not fun anymore I can’t stop feeling, no, I won’t stop feeling — Franz Ferdinand – Can’t Stop Feeling So you’ll probably see in these photos both in how late I’m posting them and the general look of…

52:500c – Week 03 – In the Darkness Bind Them

So there’s this little thing out there called reciprocity failure…and well usually you can adjust your exposure times to account for this little issue with film that the longer it’s exposed to light the less sensitive to light it becomes. But the trouble starts when you don’t have any sort of information about when you…

52:500c – Week 02 – Winter’s Fort

Winter has been something that has been a bit elusive for us in Southern Ontario. Notable the lack of snow the second week into the new year and the new project. So the title of the week isn’t really fitting, but I kept it anyways because if I used “Muddy Fort” people would think I…

52:500c – Week 0 – An Introduction

Everyone knows the name Hasselblad. I mean these are the cameras that went into space with NASA, captured shots of the moon and so much more of America’s early history in space. The name is pretty much equal with quality and the cameras still hold value even to this day. Well earlier this year I…

52:320TXP (Remixed) – Weeks 05 and 44

Sometimes the best way to revisit a rather successful project is to give it a remix, in this case it was taking some of my favourite images from the project and taking them into the darkroom. Now in the past I haven’t had access to an enlarger that could print 4×5 film, however a recent…

52:320TXP – Top Ten

Well that’s it for the sheet a week project, and honestly it was fun! My love of 4×5 never wavered nor my love of Tri-X! And while next year I’m going to be exploring more of the Ilford Line of film, major projects will be done on Tri-X because really, you can’t fuck this film…

52:320TXP – Week 52 – All’s Quiet

Ending the project on a quiet note. An abandoned farm house that I passed by on Christmas Day heading to Guelph to see my grandfather. Originally I looking at the house from the road side, however not finding the right angle, I jumped the gate and wandered around and found the actual front of the…

52:320TXP – Week 51 – Getting in the Spirit

The malls have been playing Christmas carols since the end of November, heck today I heard a Boxing day commercial on the radio. Yep, it’s that time of year again, Christmas! I had originally planned to get an exterior shot of my home church, but after checking what the exposure should be (metered for 4…
