Week 22: Seattle

Busy season is winding down a touch, and I finally have some content scanned, and ready for posting. Let’s ignore the ten rolls I still have to develop… Anyway, a way long time ago in July, I took a trip to visit my friends in Seattle and shot a ton of film. This is the…

Week 20: Another Multi-Part Roll

Week 20 comes courtesy of a few more random trips to Chinatown and H St. I have had mixed results with trying to push Tri-X two stops in the past, but I know that it was entirely my fault for trying to capture photons that just weren’t there. This time I gave in and used…

Week 19: Georgetown

Week 19 is brought to you by random stuff. The black and white shots are from a roll that sat in my T60 for about a month. Half of it was randoms, and the other half got shot on the same trip as the Holga. Those are their own special thing. I was out with my…

Week 18: Chinatown, with a side of T-MAX 400

In week 18, I did some more exploring around my usual haunts in Chinatown. This time I thought it might be productive to make some challenges for myself. The first challenge was to “get low”, and the second was to make an interesting photo of a parking meter. Both happened, although I’ll let you be…

“Week 17”: Southwest DC

These shots almost didn’t happen. I was out while I was shooting week 16, and wanted to keep wandering. I hesitated to load another roll of the CineStill 50D, not wanting to waist two rolls if the first was a flop. In hindsight, I’m really glad I shot this second roll. I couldn’t be happier…

Week 16: Cherry Blossoms

As Week 16 rolled around, I realized that both the Cherry Blossoms in Washington, DC were out, and I somehow had a day off. This clearly meant that I had to go out and take photos. I had grabbed a couple rolls each of the CineStill 50D and 800T to make minimum for free shipping a while…

Week 13: A few outings

Week 13 is a sort of composite roll, shot over three outings. The color shift is kind of interesting. In the shots with “normal” exposure, even though they are shot in daylight (admittedly during golden hour) they render white quite accurately. The underexposed shots however, shift violently toward blue. I guess my eyes were lying…

Week 15: Shooting With Aidan

I’ve been holding onto a few weeks worth of posts  for about a month in the hopes of keeping things chronological, but realizing that I’ve got a lot of rolls piling up, I figure I should publish some of it at least. These shots come courtesy of Week 15. The first two are from a park that…

Week 8: Barns and Runways

This roll is from quite a while ago, but such is the case when clearing a backlog. These were mostly shot in Calvert County with my friend Justin on Ektar with my SQAi and an 80mm PS lens. No post other than basic cropping and inversion with ColorPerfect.

Week 11: Arboretum Birthday Shenanigans

For Week 11, I took a trip out to the Arboretum again with Teresa. Last time we only had about 45 minutes until they closed, so we got there much earlier this time so that we would have some time to explore. These are mostly macro shots, as the landscapes I took weren’t anything to…

Week 14: Playing with the T60

So, work has gotten the best of me for the past month and a half. I’ve been making time to go out and shoot, but the development and scanning have been accumulating quite the backlog. Things are finally starting to calm down and slowly, I’m trying to catch up on things. I managed to get…

Week 12: Stop! Holga Time.

For week twelve I wanted something simple, so I took my Holga out for a spin. There was a partial roll of HP5+ already loaded, which had been in there a while, given the shot of the icy tree that was on there. I’m always super nervous about the exposure coming out well with toy…
