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…

[raulpc] week 36 – Abrantes

Abrantes, Portugal, once again, where I like to go on weekends, to visit my mother, and enjoy the quiet life of a small country town, and life follows a slower pace that I like to melt in around. With my 6006 measuring the light, f/16 focused at 10 meters, so everything from 3 meters to…

52 Rolls Week 30:52

This week Holga goes back to the High Country.  With special ‘soft focus effects’ because I had it set on the wrong focussing range.  However, upon examination I actually like the effect.  So here goes: Above, driving up Interstate Highway 70 going west out of Denver, CO.  A really treacherous mountain road in bad weather,…

[raulpc] week 27 – more 4×5

I love large format photography, the fun of using those cameras, the level of detail, the slow pace… here with my Graflex Crown Graphic, on a Schneider Apo-Symmar 180mm, FP4 developed in PMK, looking down on a portuguese village, Castelo de Vide… made 4 sheets, this one was the best!
