Week 5: Castle in the Water [Disco Foxtrot]

It took longer than I anticipated, but my darkroom upgrade is nearly complete and I can start printing again. I replaced my compact enlarger because of its limitations with medium format: small print size, enforced cropping, and needing to cut negatives into strips of three. I picked up a couple of enlargers for cheap on…

Week 5, FotoGeekery

My local community darkroom (http://photosynthesisct.com) has an annual photo show for its members. We started showing our images in early December and since there wasn’t another show at the gallery, we kept it up till late January. Last year we had a member’s gathering to come pickup our pieces and discuss them. We did the…

EMULSIVE - 52 Rolls: Week 01-05

EMULSIVE – Week 01-05 2016 update

Hello one and all! It’s been some time coming but I’m ready to share my 52 Rolls work to date. Hope you’re in a forgiving mood. I made a resolution this year to not shoot anything aside from some slide and infrared film at box speed. What I should have said, is that I wouldn’t…

Week 3: Quiet snow [Disco Foxtrot]

We had our first snow of the season this weekend so I rushed out to one of my favorite spots while the light was still good and before the snow began to melt or get trampled. It was a very quiet place Sunday morning, with only a few footprints to be seen. I had one…

Week:1 Wifey & Baby

I love to photograph my family so this roll and many more to come will feature the two most important people in my life. These are some shots around my house and my parents house. Tech info: Leica M6 with 35mm 1.4 Voigtlander lens, Tri-x pushed to 800. Developed by Indie film lab    

Week 15: Shooting With Aidan

I’ve been holding onto a few weeks worth of posts  for about a month in the hopes of keeping things chronological, but realizing that I’ve got a lot of rolls piling up, I figure I should publish some of it at least. These shots come courtesy of Week 15. The first two are from a park that…

TK Roll 2015–18: Autocord in Black and White (Tri-X 400)

If you’ve come across my posts before, you may have noticed that I have taken quite a liking to a nice old 1960s Twin Lens Reflex camera, a Minolta Autocord with an Optiper shutter and a 75/3.5 Rokkor taking lens. In color, the thing just produced ridiculously beautiful color negatives. But months back, I’d already…

Week 14: Playing with the T60

So, work has gotten the best of me for the past month and a half. I’ve been making time to go out and shoot, but the development and scanning have been accumulating quite the backlog. Things are finally starting to calm down and slowly, I’m trying to catch up on things. I managed to get…

Week 9: More at the Lake

For week nine, my friend Justin and I went back to Lake Artemisia and shot as we wandered around a bit. I decided to lug my SQAi around for this, and I really couldn’t be happier. I love this silly camera more and more with every roll I put thru it. This roll happened to…

Week 9 – FAIL

For Week 9, I loaded my Olympus PEN EES2 with some expired Tri-X and took it on another family ski adventure, this time to Bradford Ski Area in Haverhill. The results were disastrous.  All of my exposures were horribly blown out.  I have had questions about the EES2 before, and I have had decent results…
