After loving the results I got out of the Leica, I decided to shoot some Portra in my Rollei last week at the Orange County Fair. I only managed one roll in the heat, but I got some keepers!
Full disclosure, I’m colorblind! Consequently, I never really shoot color film. I used to in the past, for landscapes, but that was about the only time. I’ve never been able to color correct my own images so I stuck to black and white.
Picked up a cool soft release at www.themoregooder.com made out of recycled wood and skateboards! Works awesome and looks snazzy!
I’ve been playing with some SX-70 film from the Impossible Project. I love the effect I’m getting, unfortunately, they’re from a batch of defects film so I’m not sure I’ll be able to get the effect again.
Ever since I heard the name, I’d always coveted a Leica. After a few years, I finally got one. A lovely M6 with a 35 Summicron asph. I shot and shot and shot and swore I’d be buried with it someday. Then digital happened.
I got a roll of Ilford Delta 100 back from the lab yesterday. I can honestly say I think my Rolleiflex might be my favorite camera ever. That’s probably sacrilege considering my absolutely love for Leica, but it’s true. There’s something special about the 6×6 negs and I definitely prefer a built in lens.
I got the 4×5 Provia transparencies back from the lab! I’m pretty happy with the way they came out. My only issue really is that now that I see them up close, I realize I’m terrible at correcting perspective with the camera. Something I’m going to need to work on!
My Grandpa passed away two weeks ago. I used to love photographing him along with his workshop. Now that he’s gone, we’ve begun the process of going through his home. I decided before we started, that I wanted to photograph his workshop one last time as it was the last time he used it.
Sunday, my friend and I went to Joshua Tree National Park to photograph the Lunar Eclipse. Continuing with my current trend in exploring new avenues of photography, rather than take my big telephoto lenses and digital camera for close up lunar photos, I decided to take only my 4×5 rail camera for the night.
This past week I’ve been running full speed at film and alternative photography. Its hard to keep track of everything!
I purchased an 1800’s tailboard camera at a camera show. The camera and bellows are in good shape. Next steps will be finding a lens for it, and making a rear plate holder so I can eventually use it!
