Roll 17/52 Nara and beyond. Kodak Tmax 100/400 push 35mm

Nara; what an experience. The colours, the soft rolling landscape, the woody forests, and ever so daring deer. A day spent there is nay a day wasted, but get used to the ever present crowds; running at a slow hustle and bustle suited perfectly to the non business type of field trips. Japan runs on…

52 Rolls Week 14:52

Another Adventure….This time with Ilford SFX 200.  I’d tried some of this film last year. Finally figuring out that it worked better for me to use an IR 695 filter, rather than a dark red filter.  The real IR filter allows the fuzzy infrared effects to come through.  So the images taken with the dark…

35/52 No Grain No Glory

On April 18 I joined John Linton and Suresh Dagubatti for a photo walk along the paths I’ve carved so often in Providence.   I have “known” John for a long time but only from Facebook connections and met Suresh for the first time.  The weather was a bit gnarly with a fine drizzle and…

Wk 8 (2017): Shooting Fuji Acros in downtown Denver

This is another test roll of Fuji Acros Neopan film in my Mamiya 6. Decided to focus on architecture around downtown Denver. Finishing off the role making some nighttime shots of research park building in Boulder Colorado. The Fuji Acros Neopan has amazing reciprocity characterists making it a preferred film for long exposures. All images…

Roll 9 Isolette explores the town

Without the Pentax 67 which I had thought would be the centerpiece of my medium format year I’ve been forced to get better acquainted with the little Isolette, as well as the plastic ladies. It’s actually been good for me to loosen up. The Isolette, as I’ve mentioned, has some pretty imprecise shutter speed settings…

34/52 F2 and Spottie

I love the Nikon F2.  It is stout and sure.  The marine and outdoor images were shot with a Nikkor 55 mm F2.8 macro lens that doubles well as a general purpose lens.  The shadow images and travel-lift bands were taken with a Pentax Spotmatic, 135 F 3.5 lens.   These cameras are both rich…

2017, Roll 11 – Million Dollar Bills

Before we start, I thought you might be interested in this. It’s a piece on why the results that we enjoy from film are not the same as shooting digital and then adding effects. It’s one of the best explanations of a subject that I’ve always found difficult to pin down. See what you think:…
