Roll 23 Dog Days

This camera has been one of my medium format favorites. However mine was at the doctor for such a long time I almost forgot about it even after I got it back. This roll dates from mid summer when I decided the only way to shoot this camera was to just take it out and…

Roll 16 More cross processing

You may have noticed that there have been quite a few rolls of cross processed slide film in this series. This is because I have (or did have) at lot of this film in my stash, and circumstances have made it impractical to send film out for processing. So I’ve been processing all my own…

Roll 14 (meh) and Roll 15 The Pentax Returns

Roll 14 didn’t yield many shots worth sharing. The film was Fujichrome expired in 2000 , shot on the Isolette and cross processed. The results were mostly terrible and the curling of the Fuji film during processing is starting to drive me nuts. This shot represents what I am starting to call informally my “demo…

Roll 10 More around the town

I realized I’m very behind on posting. I’m actually pretty current on shooting, but not so much on developing and posting. This roll is more of my exploration of the underbelly of Encinitas, Portra 400 shot on the Isolette. I think the hazy overcast we were having through much of March provided good conditions for…

Roll 9 Isolette explores the town

Without the Pentax 67 which I had thought would be the centerpiece of my medium format year I’ve been forced to get better acquainted with the little Isolette, as well as the plastic ladies. It’s actually been good for me to loosen up. The Isolette, as I’ve mentioned, has some pretty imprecise shutter speed settings…

Rolls 7 & 8 Delightful Diana

I decided to put these two rolls in one post since they were both shot on the Diana. Since my Pentax 67 which I intended as my primary instrument for exploration of medium format this year has been in the ICU for a month I was left with the Isolette and the Diana. I am…

Rolls 5 & 6 The project takes shape

Now that I’ve decided on a theme for this year (which includes not just the work I’m posting here, but instant and 35mm photography) I am having so much fun exploring the place I’ve lived for years and finding amazing stuff. I’m also enjoying getting to know my Diana, which is a much more competent…

Roll 4 More lurking in alleys

I took the Isolette out again, this time with a roll of fresh Portra 400. I am really enjoying my overarching theme of finding weird stuff in my town. I have explored so many back alleys and obscure streets and found lots of stuff I never knew was there. Part of my mission now for…
