Candids Shots with Pentax 645

Sam Church, Family, Film, Toronto Leave a Comment

Rather than going out to search for material, I wanted to document the simple and routine acts in life. Often these are the moments we miss and come to treasure in the future. Film used: Fujifilm Pro 400H. My favorite photo is my dad showing off his super scissors. Hemming a new pair of pants in the living room. Taking …

The season finally ended but we had a terrific finish when we beat our nemisis, The Green Machine, at the play-offs. Photos were taken with the Fuji Instax200 Camera, classic. Thanks for a great season and all the 11pm games!

The Yashica Mat-124G is back. This time with a bit of everything, still learning all the buttons and knobs. St.Jacob Farmer’s Market, I learned about the local Shrine club from these gentlemen. Toques and gloves for the winter. I had intended to focus on the man but he was moving too much for my fingers. Pizza Nova, our Sunday one-stop …
