We are pleased to present @stevesimon who is coming to Victoria, and the Victoria Camera Club will be hosting an evening with him, door prizes are courtesy of @KCLVictoria . The event will take place on Tuesday August 27th, from 7:30-9:30pm; at Norway House (1110 Hillside Ave, Victoria BC) 
I was fortunate enough to meet Steve Simon during the 2010 Winter Olympics, and I have been listening to him be a guest speaking on podcasts such as TWiP and others for many years now. He is a great photographer, a great presenter, and a very nice fellow to speak with in general. 
I am sad that I will personally be out of town during this event, I would have loved to talk to Steve more, but I welcome all of you to attend if you can. 
Admission is only $15/person if you are a non-member, and $7.50/person if you are a VCC member. Well worth it in my opinion. 
Tickets are available now, and you can get them here! We hope you are able to attend!
Cheers
John R. 


Just cause I cannot go, does not mean you should miss this event!

My new to me camera, the Rollei 35, a later variant of the original with the Carl Zeiss 40mm F/3.5 Tessar, but the newer bottom latch and the shorter name on the bottom plate. 
The light meter is dead and will never work again, the original owner left the mercury battery in it for over 20 years, and it exploded inside the camera. There is all sorts of electrical corrosion inside the light meter. But it is mechanically sound, I have a roll of Rollei Retro 400s loaded in it now. 
Hope to be posting samples taken with it soon.

DIY Redscale Film: Exposing the Wrong Side of the Film

If you have been researching on redscaling films, you might have come across “expose the wrong side of the film,” but what does that exactly mean? We will not go technical. Cut me some slack, this is going to be long for sure. It only means that the matte side of the film should be facing you when you load the film on your camera. Here’s how we will go about that.
