"I recently went on a road trip with my friend Kam Goodman, @kamvas. This is one of his photo combinations and I thought I would give it a try. I’m always excited to have a new Hipstamatic combo to play with. When I am introduced to a new film and lens, I try to stick with it for awhile. I used it almost exclusively over the course of a foggy day period in Victoria. There are images on the ferry ride from Victoria, B.C. to Vancouver: the majority of these images were taken during a hike near China Beach, on the Western coast of Victoria Island. The weather was perfect for a fall forest walk down to the beach. The skies were grey and the fog was rolling in and out, and this always makes for such beautiful images on back roads and forest trails. Just what we were looking for. I love the warmth and the little bit of added contrast, it really enhanced that fall feeling that I was so enjoying. With the flat lighting this pack worked well with the trees, the water, and a few portraits. I think it would be trickier to use on a sunny day, highlights would get blown out pretty easily. This trip was followed by a trip to Tokyo, and I found the combo to work equally well on the streets, in low light conditions. Hope you enjoy the walk in the woods."
