Last week I took some shots with the Auto Graflex. Here’s some more.
You really need to see these full screen to get the awesome resolution that 4×5 gives. I think the shots look kind of interesting but average when they’re not large. A friend of mine has given up 35mm entirely because of the extra detail of medium & large resolution. I encourage you to click on the images and see them big.
I think the dark bag that I pull the film into it leaks a little. There’s a dark area on the bottom of some of my shots. I’ve been lightening it in Lightroom. Or its because I’m using old 1998 film. Either way, it does give a dark feeling to the shots, which I’m OK with.
We’re in it for the adventure & surprise, right? Randomness is an excellent collaborator.
This is the best shot, I think:
Here’s a shot of me in a storefront window:
And the rest:
This is UTP, who does excellent work.
I mostly shoot people, but I do love buildings and clutter.
I’ve been developing all of these at home in Diafine.
This 52rolls project has been excellent for getting me to shoot. I’ll do a lot more in Summer, when the days are long and sunny.
