Pentax67-002

Tacoma Brunch with the Pentax67

I wanted to confirm that the camera was metering properly after my previous thin negatives using the old film.  I could have just compared its recommended exposure with a digital camera, but I never got around to it.  Instead, I just shot a few more rolls yesterday. I developed them at home in Diafine.  They…

Camping with a Pentax67

I should have overexposed this 1988 film by a few stops.  Instead, I just shot it as-is, at ISO 400.  I should have shot it at ISO 100.  When the negatives came back, they were all really thin, which made for very grainy images. I got the film at $1.50/roll, 119 rolls of it, at…

Stickman gets in so…

Kangaroo tracks at the cattle press

Week 28: FED 3, Tri-X and a monobath

I wanted to test and run a roll through my old FED3 and I needed to get out of the house for a bit so I thought a jaunt around the neighborhood would be a good idea. This clunky old beast shoots remarkably well. I fixed it to a good setting for zone focusing and…
