For the first time ever I will be participating in First Saturday
onSaturday the 7th of February.
For those not in the know First Saturday is an opportunity to visit artists in their studios. Much like East Side Culture Crawl only It happens every month and is a little more low key. This month will be our first time participating and we will be sharing our studio with the ever talented Rachael Ashe.
Rachael is a visual artist who works in paper cutting, mixed media altered books and photography. Her work is amazing and she will be joining us at our studio for the afternoon.
So come and visit us at 25 Gore Ave, ask questions, learn more about our upcoming photo workshops.

My favourite addition to the film camera collection this past year was the Mamiya C330. This TLR camera with interchangeable lens is a great medium 6×6 shooter. it will shoot 120 or 220 rolls and this 80mm (50mm 35mm equivalent) lens has an aperture range of f/2.8 to f/32 and shutter speed from Bulb to 1/500. Shooting with both a waist level finder and no built in light meter defiantly makes one slow down and think about your shot which is fun. However I might pick up some 220 rolls this year to stretch out the number of shots to 24 a roll as apposed to the 12 shots for I feel I am always at the end of the roll.
