Wk 29(2017): Hard Rock Mine Tour

The first week of July I shot a roll of TMAX 400 at two mine sites just out of Nederland Colorado. The first is called the Cardinal Mine. The actual mine site belongs to Boulder county open space, but the right of way to get there crosses private land. So the site can only be…

52 Rolls Week 30:52

Rollei  400 test using my ‘new’ old camera.  Largest image on the left is a 4 second exposure; moving clockwise upper right is 2 seconds, lower right is 1 second.  All at f/16.  My giant zucchini have beautiful variegated leaves, but the IR film smooths that away…… So I’ll have to make some ‘ordinary’ B&W…

51/52 Glorious Portra

It’s hard to believe I am almost at the end of posting 52 rolls of film.  Heck, that’s a lot of photography!  It’s been a great ride.   A few shots from a roll of Kodak Portra, Leica M3.  I have taken to shooting Portra at 200 but sometimes box speed works better at least…

Abandoned houses in Eastern Washington

Roll 13 Discovering Favorite Films

I’m trying diligently to get a bit caught up. I have lots of rolls backlogged but circumstances have conspired to rob me of any time to post here. I’m going to forge ahead while I have a few days. This set were shot on the Isolette, which is the fanciest camera I’ve been using. I’ve…

Roll 12 Boat Houses and More

This roll was shot on the Diana, which is becoming a favorite despite its primitive nature. I spent a fortune to have my precious Pentax 67 returned to life but just haven’t taken it out. Mostly the opportunities I’ve had to shoot are on quick walks, or dashing out of my double parked car to…

52 Rolls Week 29:52

More Infrared Experiments……and a Tale of Two Exposures below: Camera set on ISO 50 @ f/16.  Some recommend that Rollei Infrared be exposed at ISO 25, but the negatives were so dense that they were almost un-scannable.  This seemed to work better…also using the 720 nm filter:  Left 2 sec & right 4 sec.
