Pinhole photography by Sandy McLennan

Sandy McLennan is an Ontario, Canada multi-media artist thriving on reinvention. After graduating Sheridan College Media Arts he moved to Muskoka in 1986. At that time he received a provincial grant to teach pinhole photography.

McLennan worked as Audio-Visual/Computer Technician in schools until 2014.

Unleash that Reticulated Film Python

Black and white photo of Ribnar MazumdarHi my name is Ribnar Mazumdar and I am a hybrid photographer.

Hybrid in the sense, I almost always shoot film but also enjoy my only digital camera – the Leica M Monochrom 246 and a digital workflow that includes Lightroom and Photoshop.

I love alternative photographic techniques like dry plates and brushed on emulsions. I am a darkroom fanatic – always exploring new ways to mash up digital with traditional analog techniques. I love all kinds of print processes – cyanotypes, salts, van dykes to name a few. I shoot all formats right from 35mm half frames up to 8×10 large format.
