Week 14 – Garages, Doors & Alleyways

The weather has been all over the place here in Wales and with work being busy getting time to plan a shoot is near impossible. I have 3 cameras loaded with different films so that dependant on the light when I get a chance I am ready to get through a roll. This week it…

Week 7 – Partly Sunny 16 ish ….

For week 3 I was planning on shooting my Olympus 35 RC with some Fuji Superia 400 but after attempting the 1st shot the camera meter would not let the shutter release as if the exposure was out of range. I immediately thought it must be a battery problem so popped back home to change…

52:320TXP (Remixed) – Weeks 05 and 44

Sometimes the best way to revisit a rather successful project is to give it a remix, in this case it was taking some of my favourite images from the project and taking them into the darkroom. Now in the past I haven’t had access to an enlarger that could print 4×5 film, however a recent…

Roll 41- a hike to a waterfall

For roll 41 I took my Zero 4×5 out hiking to Tamanawas Falls (say that fast three times) on Mt. Hood. It’s a gorgeous hike and if you are ever in the area I highly recommend it. It’s a short hike, probably a mile or so to the Falls. Autumn is a beautiful time to…

Roll 35: Hike Above the Other Side

The EXA went hiking with me again.   I bought a new strap for it and, now, it is so much more comfortable to tote around all day.   Watch out, folks, I armed and dangerous now!   Again, I shot on Kodak Ektar 100.    And, if you saw my last hiking post, you’ll…

Roll 34: Hike Above

The Canon SureShot 90u and roll of Fuji Superia X-tra made their way on a hike just south of Reno, Nevada.   This is a relatively new trail that the county is maintaining for the public so I thought I would force my five year old to check it out for some exercise.   He…

Roll 16: Zeiss Ikon Cocarette

This week’s roll is Kodak Portra 400, 120 film.   But, that’s not so special when you consider what camera I used.   Check out this beauty, a Zeiss Ikon Cocarette.   (ooooh, laaa, laaa) And, here’s what I got from my first shots from it.   I waited for a glowing morning sunrise to…

Week #11: A Sunny Walk and a Second One Nearby

This week, Sunday was a pretty nice day.  Sunny, blue sky and we’re not used to that very much in this place especially in March.  So I went out in the morning for a short walk in our village.   Then later in the afternoon we go out again on another walk starting from a…

Roll 14: Oreo Cows

There is a ranch near our house that has “Oreo Cows.”   Of course, this is not their real name but it is what my family calls them every time we drive by the pastures of black and white cattle.   I believe the technical breed name is “Belted Galloway” but that is totally boring…
