Toronto Street Shooting Photowalk

9 Nov

Yesterday, I got the chance to go out on a photowalk with more than 20 other great photographers.  Here are a bunch of images that I grabbed, as you’ll see, we found a lot of skaters.

It was really cool to bump into my old friend Taha on the walk, we ended up spending the whole day shooting together along with my friend Simon.  I didn’t know that he had taken up photography and further to that he is the greatest iPhone photographer I’ve ever met.  Seriously.  check out his Instagram feed and see for yourself.  That said, I processed everything from yesterday’s walk in black and white with the exception of this portrait that I grabbed of Taha, the colour was just too good.  You can see Simon’s set from yesterday by clicking here .  It’s neat to see how we each captured similar situations from different perspectives. Jay McIntyre Photography Toronto Street Photography Taha

Ilford FP5 400 scans

27 Feb

I was recently loaned the use of a canon AE-1 manual focus film slr. This is an insanely awesome little camera, if there were no such thing as digital and autofocus, it would be my primary camera. Seeing as there is such thing as digital and autofocus, the AE-1 is a bit of a novelty, but it’s also an opportunity to think really hard about photography. Shooting film means that you need to be fully committed to the shot before you press that shutter and I see that as an opportunity to learn even more and push myself as a photographer.
So I set out to load the camera and came across Ilford FP5 black and white film which is what the call “true” black and white. True black and white film only captures black and white as opposed to regular black and white which captures all of the colors but processes them as black and white. The results are a rich contrast and really deep blacks. Shooting this film will require a little more thought as I approach each shot but I really like it. Here are a few scans from the roll
