14- 15 rolls project

Very busy week so I’m combining weeks 14 and 15.Headed down to Washington D.C. for the cherry blossom parade, unfortunately there were no cherry blossoms because of the weather. First shots were around the Hotel when I went for a walk and inside the Pentagon City Mall…. These all btw were taken with my yashica…

Week 52 – Carl Zeiss Jena Flextogon 35mm f2.4

Just before Christmas I picked up a  Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 35mm f2.4 in M42 mount which I had heard very good reports about. I have a few old M42 mount cameras and decided to test it with my trusty Praktica MTL 5B and some expired Kodak Colorplus. It was a pretty cold day but clear skies…

Week 50 – Kodak Portra 800 in the mist ….

Slightly out of order again as I shot this roll last weekend and wanted to see how Portra 800 looked as I have never shot it in 120 format before. The weather was cold and pretty drab with quite a lot of mist up on the mountains here so I thought that it was appropriate…

Week 49 — Pushing HP5 in the Fog ….

We have had quite a few foggy days here in Wales so I decided to shoot a roll of HP5 at 1600 with the hope of accentuating the fog with the extra grain and contrast of pushing the film. I was quite pleased with the results, I really do like the look of HP5 when…

Week 48 – 15 years Expired ….

As I have said in a previous post I have a lot of expired Slide film stored in my fridge with the intention to cross-process it from time to time. This roll of Fuji Sensia 400 expired back in 2002, I am not sure how most of the rolls were stored which is why I am cross processing…

Week 46 – Tweaking my Olympus 35RC

I have had my Olympus 35RC for quite a while but have been struggling to nail any focus when shooting wide open probably due to the very dim viewfinder patch. It was quite dim when I got the camera but my last couple of rolls have had a load of out of focus frames on…

Week 45 – Posting out of sequence ….

I have realised that I am posting slightly out of sequence with my next 3 posts due to developing/scanning mishap. I had 6 rolls of film to catch up with and having not marked very well I have managed to process them out order in which shot. I want to get as much done this…

Week 42 – Sunny Autumn to Winter in 1 Week ….

  I have been making the most of the lovely sunshine we have been having recently … the weather here in Wales has been a bit nuts, lovely sunshine one day, torrential rain the next and then last weekend we had the 1st smattering of Hail/Snow up on the mountains. These two images were shot…

Week 41 – Expired Fuji Superia 100

I was attempting to write a list of all the various single rolls of expired film I have stored in my fridge last week and when all done I realised that I had 6 rolls of Superia 100. I love shooting Superia 400 but I don’t remember shooting much 100 before so as it was…
