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…

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…

A Panorama Adventure Part I:  When I started my Mamiya 7 feeding frenzy I saw a 35 mm Panorama insert on line and said, ‘what the heck, buy it and try it’.  It didn’t cost much (Compared to all the Mamiya 7 kit) I had so no harm done to the finances. Sorry I didn’t…
