This weekend I got to photograph artist Titanium Mike for my pinhole portrait project who came all the way from Toronto. I decided to do a few test runs the day before for fun and to get our minds get into the groove. Each image was approximately a 3 minute exposure. It was fun, challenging and something I hope to do more of and NOT only with Montreal artists but for anyone who would love to experience this pretty […]
I am always open to trying new and existing things involving anything that caters to the “non-digital” world of photography. My newest query is the subject of film/paper development with Caffenol. Although I have heard of the use of Caffenol before, I did not expect there to be as much information out there as I came to see. I know that it is not a new discovery or technique, but since I have never experimented with it, it is kind […]
Lumen Prints – Part 3 Previous posts on lumen prints: Lumen Prints – Part 1 Lumen Prints – Part 2 In the last few weeks, I was able to really dig in deep with the lumen camera. I have learnt quite a bit during this time and I have come up with a few tips that I think can be valuable to you if you are thinking of giving this a try. Do not drench the paper in water. […]
On April 23rd, 2017, I received an interesting email on Instagram from a “Canadian literary and visual arts magazine” and was feeling quite honored! I have not been on Instagram for very long. I joined Instagram in December of last year so I guess you can understand the excitement I had felt. I mean I have been struggling for a very long time with trying to find the “right audience”, and Facebook, which was my main active social media platform, has […]

It has been a while since I have gone out and about on the streets of Montreal at night. I really have to do this more often. I chose to use my Nikon F100 for this self challenge because I find it perfect in situations where movement is quick and all around me.
Lumen Prints – Part 2 Previous post: Lumen Prints – Part 1 I wanted to share with you my first experience with the Lumen box camera. I actually have been trying to test a few weekends before I did this one but unfortunately I was bummed out due to rain. I decided this time around to give it a shot rain or shine on my balcony. This was a day where the weather was very inconsistent which made it tricky for […]
I finally got myself together and made my first pinhole camera. I decided to go with a circular box just to change things up a little since all of my pinhole cameras are the typical box style. I was panning to wait for the weekend to do some testing, but I just couldn’t help myself. I have to say, the hardest part was cutting the paper to fit inside the box. I will have to get myself a rotary […]
