Rolls 24 and 26 More of My Town

I started the “My Town” project as a way to keep myself interested for the year, but it has turned into a thing for me. I have already documented numerous homes that are no longer there, at first by accident and then, more recently, I’ve been searching for likely candidates. Anyway to speed up the…

Roll 23 Dog Days

This camera has been one of my medium format favorites. However mine was at the doctor for such a long time I almost forgot about it even after I got it back. This roll dates from mid summer when I decided the only way to shoot this camera was to just take it out and…

52 Rolls Week 35:52

Returning to my favorite reliable film this week Kodak T-MAX 400.  Recently attended the Open House at Walker Ranch in Boulder County.  Yes, KellyBlackDog has already posted his versions of this visit.  But we always seem to see very different things. See more from this expedition here.  Including 35 mm XD-11 images. Tech Info: Mamiya-7…

Roll 14 (meh) and Roll 15 The Pentax Returns

Roll 14 didn’t yield many shots worth sharing. The film was Fujichrome expired in 2000 , shot on the Isolette and cross processed. The results were mostly terrible and the curling of the Fuji film during processing is starting to drive me nuts. This shot represents what I am starting to call informally my “demo…

52 Rolls Week 29:52

More Infrared Experiments……and a Tale of Two Exposures below: Camera set on ISO 50 @ f/16.  Some recommend that Rollei Infrared be exposed at ISO 25, but the negatives were so dense that they were almost un-scannable.  This seemed to work better…also using the 720 nm filter:  Left 2 sec & right 4 sec. Our…

Roll 9 Isolette explores the town

Without the Pentax 67 which I had thought would be the centerpiece of my medium format year I’ve been forced to get better acquainted with the little Isolette, as well as the plastic ladies. It’s actually been good for me to loosen up. The Isolette, as I’ve mentioned, has some pretty imprecise shutter speed settings…
