Minolta Riva Panorama - Film 05 - 07

Week 3 – 2014: Frosty panoramas

Continuing with the images from January. This time shot with a Minolta Riva Panorama on Agfa Precisa CT (rebranded Fuji Provia 100F). This is the first time that I’m scanning a roll from this camera myself and I was surprised just how soft the images were. But now with a healthy dose of sharpening I…

Week 20: Wild Hair, Nikon F90 and Ektar

I took a drive by myself the other day and came across the abandoned paper mill. Looks inviting, don’t it? Took some landscape shots as well and Im still tinkering with this new scanner cause the colors are all wonky and my negatives are dirty and well… Oh yeah, I just started my new blog.…

Film: Kodak 100 T-Max Camera: Voigtlander Bessa R3A with Skopar 35/2.5 This camera makes me very happy.  I love shooting with it, I love its simplicity and I really like what I get from it.  The Skopar 35mm lens is very fun to shoot also – all in all, a solid combination for shooting 135. I carried the…

Comerong Island

In the delta of the Shoalhaven lies Comerong Island, sitting between the Crookhaven and Shoalhaven Rivers. A channel was dug between these rivers in 1822 by convicts creating the island. The Heads of the Crookhaven River are easily navigable unlike those of the Shoalhaven which are shallow, and now are often silted up. The island…

Green and White

  For week 19 I am working with a roll of Ilford XP2 that expired in about 2004. It is a black and white film that is process in C41 chemistry and has serious colour shifts as can be seen in the first shot above. However it scanned just fine and there are more than…
