After another hectic summer, I decided to escape this October to a small town in New Brunswick to take a breather and re-connect with some very special friends & loved ones. Sackville, host to Mount Allison University, is actually where I did my Fine Arts Degree and first discovered my passion for photography. I really missed the slow-paced, easy-going nature of the east coast and just spent my time re-charging and re-connecting with my roots. It was a very peaceful time for me, and I just thought I’d share a little but of that with you all. 🙂
I arrived at peak season for the fall colors and was blown away by all the reds, yellows and oranges. I decided to do a little experimenting with a film technique called cross-processing. What you do, is you take slide film (positive transparency film) and you develop it in negative film chemistry….and you wind up with punchy, high-contrast images. It’s a relatively un-predictable technique, but I’m quite happy with some of the results.
