Home again, home again…

I didn’t go to Canada to shoot landscapes, my project is documentary based, but when in Rome…

I took a Canon EOS 5D mkII to The North West Territories of Canada with me. I shot the entire project on film, but I took the Canon, filled with good intentions of getting loads of video footage. That never happened, I was just to busy. I did manage to get a few shots of the Aurora Borealis though, 8 shots to be exact.

These shots are straight out of the camera. I think it would be possible to enhance them, but it doesn’t seem right. This is how they look to me. I did get an even better display than these a couple of nights before, but I’m ashamed to say I didn’t have a suitable camera with me…

I shot 116 rolls of film, mostly Fuji Pro 400H, over a period of 3 weeks. The film is now somewhere between London Victoria, where I posted it yesterday, and Sheffield, where it’s being processed by Peak Imaging.

3 weeks work…

…bagged-up and ready to go.



  1. Welcome home Phil. You should have said you were in the Victoria area as that’s where I am based – coffee would have been on me! Really looking forward to seeing your images when blogged – and thanks once again for inspiring me to get into film!
