52 Rolls Week 36:52

A Visit to Heart Mountain Relocation Center.  Or at least that’s the official name.  I prefer internment camp……… Upper Left: wall from one of the remaining barracks; The Flag at the Visitor’s Center; A Meditation Room inside the Visitor’s Center. Senator Inouye was a highly decorated WWII veteran who defended this country in Europe while…

52 Rolls Week 21:52

This Week wrapping up my trip to the Moab Photo Symposium.  We stayed an extra day to wander through bot Arches and Canyonlands National Parks.  I highly recommend Canyonlands if you are passing through the area.  Often a bit less crowded than Arches, because its a longer drive to get into the heart of the…

Some telephoto perspectives.  I always carry the 150 mm lens for the Mamiya 7, but almost never use it.  And the 210 mm never gets in the bag.  Well I took them both out for a ‘drive’ in Moab.  By the way, I shot seven rolls of film in Moab.  I was trying lot’s of…

More from the Moab Photo Symposium.  Day 2, shooting with Huntington Witherill in Hunter Canyon.  I had met Huntington several years ago when I lived in Monterey, CA, and was starting my serious B&W photography.  He welcomed our Experimental Photography Class into his home studio to talk about his work.  It was nice to renew…

52 Rolls Week 18:52

First results from the Moab Photo Symposium.  Next year will be the last as the organizer is retiring to travel the Southwest US, making images.  So If you can, drop in …….. Best of the first day of shooting with Bruce Barhbaum.  His philosophy of image making and his life story were both fascinating.  I…

Another Adventure….This time with Ilford SFX 200.  I’d tried some of this film last year. Finally figuring out that it worked better for me to use an IR 695 filter, rather than a dark red filter.  The real IR filter allows the fuzzy infrared effects to come through.  So the images taken with the dark…

52 Rolls Week 39:52

I wasn’t sure I’d have anything to post…….I was experimenting with films and that means we can’t count on the results.  But on closer inspection my Ilford SFX-200 experiment using an IR 695 Filter  were more successful than I had expected.  Below, Nokhu Crags (12.490 ft, 3807 m) in the Never Summer Range, above Cameron…

52 Rolls Week 35:52

Some experiments this week with film type, expired film, exposure and Photoshop HDR. Not a fan of the Expired Film Movement…..I like to know what my results will be.  But two rolls of Ilford SFX-200 (Infrared Sensitive) have been knocking around in my camera backpack for a while.  So I decided to use then and…

Week 1 : Yashica Mat 124G

I pulled out my first ‘real’ camera for this week, my Yashica Mat 124g.  When I first seriously picked up this hobby in 2013, the Yashica was the first film I bought since a point-n-shoot Nikon in the early 90s. I wanted to try some ‘near-IR’ shooting in the winter, just to see what look…

Week 38: SFX

While we still have leaves on the trees, I decided to try shooting some of the rolls of Ilford SFX200.  I had previously used this film stock, but with no filter on my camera.  It is considered a ‘near-IR’ film, so I bit the bullet and bought a Hoyo R72 UV filter.  Since I didn’t…

Week 21, Local Car Show

So my hometown has a car show once a month on the 3rd Wednesday during the ‘nice weather’ season (April-Sept), but the April show got cancelled because we had so much rain.  Thus the May event was the first they held this year.  Most towns and cities in New England have a common area we…
