First experiences with Ektar 100 in medium format

Lately I have been shooting mostly black and white. I’ve always loved black and white photography. It’s great for practice, can have a nice abstract feel, has just a ton of film and developing options to really influence the look, and I can develop it myself. In truth developing color …

It took me a while to come around to HP5+, but…

Back when I shot film in high school I recall liking T-Max 100. In my current foray back into film, I have found myself preferring Ilford Delta 100, which is very similar. Part of it is indeed the T-Grain emulsion but it may also be I haven’t really looked much …

Bluestar in 6×45 on Delta 100

I took the Mamiya out yesterday while we went out to have brunch at Halcyon (close to Bluestar). I did so mostly to test to see if my new light seals actually are working as they should (they seem to be!) and to also play around with my new Sekonic …

Experimenting around with Delta 100 on 35mm

Here’s a few notable frames from my roll of 35mm Delta 100. I didn’t quite get the results I was looking for in many of the other photos. Primarily I still can’t seem to figure out how to use a red filter to get the supposed super dark skies. I …

Trying to figure out how to use a red filter

Here’s a few decent photos from my third ever roll of 120 film. I was practicing with the Mamiya 645 1000s and the MeFOTO RoadTrip tripod while also testing out the effects of a red filter, with and without a circular polarizer. Oddly the red filter didn’t darken the sky …

First Rolls of 120 (Medium Format) Film

When I was first into photography, I never was really … wait for it … exposed (get it? … I’m sorry) to medium or large format cameras. I always thought, right or wrong, that they were expensive and really never considered anything beyond 35mm. I started learning more about medium …

Alaska In Film & In Color

These are some of my favorite photos from my first foray into color film in a long time (we don’t need to bother with the math to know how long). Show with Ektar 100 and Portra 800. They aren’t in chronological order (whoops) for some reason so some of the …

Photos from The White Pass Train

During our recent trip to Alaska, we took a day trip on The White Pass Train which was a perfect place to snap some photos! While most folks went towards the front of the train, a super helpful engineer suggested we set up camp in the car right behind the …

Getting back into film photography!?

I know, I know, I don’t need another hobby. But I’ve wanted to get back into Black and White film photography since high school. My dad gave me his AE-1 and I got the bug! These were actually shot on a Nikon N80 since I only have Nikon lenses. I …
