Roll 13 – roll back

When I bought my Zero 45 and posted the photo of it on Facebook Mr. Espressobuzz told me to go out and get a 120 rollback  for it. I knew I was going to get one eventually but it turns out eventually was faster than I thought. I bid on a Graflex “23” Graphic 120…

Roll 10; More Graffiti and things…

Had a decent week shooting, I’m soooo behind in postings, my shooting has increased over the past couple of weeks (not taking away from my 52 rolls though), but it has increased the amount of back end work that I’m doing.  Instead of scanning just my normal 2-3 rolls, I’m going through 8-9 rolls.  Just…

Weeks 10, 11 and 12 – using lenses for once

Back to using cameras with actual glass stuck on the front for a change. Recently acquired two MF cameras that needed putting through their paces. The mighty Pentacon SIX and a Mamiya M645 1000s. Both of which I find I like. The Mamiya’s main issue is that is not 6×6 😉   We are experiencing…

CoffeeCam Pinhole Shots from Discovery Park in Seattle

Last Saturday I went out with @Jana, @Colby, @Kate & Ken to Discovery park to get in a few pinhole shots & finish off a roll in my Pentax K1000. This is the same cylindrical pinhole CoffeeCam with 3D printed parts that @TheSchlem gave me and Jana for testing.     I loaded 2 sheets of 4×5…

Week 12: Pinhole + SuperSampler

I had planned to take up a different pinhole camera in preparation for Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day, but I was enjoying carrying around last week’s camera. There are a couple of pinhole kits on my desk that I want to contruct and try in advance of the 27th. Perhaps this week? These are a few…

52:320TXP – Week 12 – Kodak Tower

Giving Kodak a little love for week 12. Yes, despite what you have (or haven’t heard) Kodak is alive and kicking and still producing film (marketing it under the Kodak Alaris name). So when I had a chance to go visit Rochester I decided to give some exposure to the company’s iconic headquarters. The Kodak…

Long Exposures of Flaming Tetherball

I had tried this before last year, (and actually, I kinda like those photos better), using black & white film, but I wanted to try it again for 52rolls, using color film this time. Flaming Tetherball is a sport invented by Rusty at HazardFactory.     It’s like tetherball, but instead of a ball, you use a…

Week 9: Walking Distance – part 2

Another week of nothing but cold weather and not leaving the neighborhood. The last roll was finished before these guys got their work done hanging the flags over this vacant lot. I stuck around to watch some of this and was glad to have something interesting to shoot. If you are curious, check out the…

Roll 13: Spring

Spring has sprung.   I spent the day at the University of Nevada, Reno, and managed to sneak away for a few shots with the Yashica Mat EM on Kodak Portra 400, 120 film. I attended here but don’t end up back on campus very often anymore so it was nice to visit the swans…

Week #12 Testing 3, 4

  Week 12 was the week in which I tested some cameras again. A while ago, while I was making pinhole shots, a man approached me and asked me what I was doing. We ended up having a conversation about photography, and he told me he had some gear at home. He diddn’t know what…

Week 8

My film holders arrived today from B&H photography I ordered one for 120 medium format and also one for 35mm. I was surprised how easy the 120 was to load and center it. I’m just wondering why my film has these white streaks in the center of the frame. Was it from developing? The pictures…
