Week 11: A Yashica Relief.

If you read my last post you’ll know that I’d had a problem with my Yashica. Since I got it a few weeks ago, I’d used it almost exclusively and been delighted with the results. However, the last roll had delivered 11 shots of the 12 slightly out of focus (with only my TLR selfie in…

EMULSIVE 52 Rolls - Week 08 - Kodak Tri-X 400 (35mm) - EI1600

EMULSIVE – Week 06-09 2016 update

Time for a look at the latest frames from week 06-09 of my 52 Rolls project (not 06-10, as I incorrectly tweeted). The over/under exposure and push/pull/XPRO theme covered in my first update of 2016 continues unabated and I must say, it’s been quite refreshing. I’ve found myself experimenting more than I usually do, and with the recent…

Roll 18 – The Traveling Yashica

I’d been waiting patiently, almost forgetting about it entirely, but the Traveling Yashica finally arrived to me, safe and sound, last week. David Lee, in Korea, who I’ve recently followed on Twitter, was the previous user. Trying my best to get a roll through it and back in the mail as soon as possible, I…

Week 32: Lebanon Country Fair

Most towns in my state are named after three things: cities/towns from England, local native place names, or places mentioned in the Bible.  This particular town is right next to the one I grew up in, and when I was young, both towns had about an equal number of cows and people.  My town has…

Week 29: Yantic

I went to a section of my town that is off the beaten path (there is a ‘No Outlet’ sign at the turn-off), where there is an abandoned mill along with a mill town.  It is located along the banks of the Yantic River and is, surprisingly, called ‘Yantic’ which is from a local native word for…

Week 17, Beltica

For Christmas, my brother got me an old rangefinder, a Belca Beltica, circa 1951.  I have all the details on my blog.  I had shot a short roll earlier, but other than making sure everything seemed to work, I hadn’t had a chance to play with the camera much.  But needing a change of pace…

Eclectic Week 11

Part of this project, for me, is getting beyond my comfort zone to do some new shooting.  This week ended up being a great start along that path, first with a studio lighting workshop then a parade and shooting more people shots.  Three rolls with three different cameras.  Not a single shot without some person…
