Week #9 – Down at the pond

We have that lovely lake around here. It takes us just fifteen minutes to get there by car. The lake itself is not too big. There´s a path that leads around it and if you decide to go for a round you will have made it in about an hour without hurrying too much. The lake is made for…

52:500c – Week 08 – Fort Town

If there is one thing that is great about the reenacting hobby is that it gives me a chance to explore the area where the battles I reenact were fought which are part of the story of not just the country of Canada but the Province of Ontario. Prescott, Ontario is one such community that…

Week 8 – Finishing off an old roll

So – this week is an odds and sods week. This roll has been in my EOS 3 for the best part of a month but I finally finished it this week. It is also using some odds and sods of film Orwo N74 rated at 400 and devved in XTOL 1-1. I’m not particularly…

[raulpc] week 9 – one wide

Camera on tripod, yellow filter up front for contrast and add some weight on the sky. The way these large format lenses…

Party in Tacoma

Week 4: Svema 250 and Yashica 124G

I bought a set of 10 rolls of Svema 250 on eBay and it’s been an interesting experience. It curls like crazy so it’s very hard to get in onto a reel for developing. And scanning is a challenge. I exposed it for ISO 100, developed it in Fomadon 1+50, and scanned it with Epson v850.

Week 7 = Impossible saves the day

The only thing that saved me from getting hopelessly behind was that I ordered a package of Impossible duochrome green film to try. It’s still in beta testing. I took two shots about two weeks previously, and liked the effect but didn’t like that the emulsion looked blotchy. I decided to shoot the rest of…
