Large Format In Tucson

In January, I had the opportunity to travel to Tucson, Arizona. It was a work trip so I didn’t have a lot of time to go out shooting and had to work with the time of days that were available but I decided nonetheless to try taking just one camera …

First time shooting ADOX CHS ii

I’ve been waiting for quite a while to try out the new ADOX CHS ii and finally was able to grab a box of it and give it a go! Short answer, do I like this film? Absolutely! But with some some caveats. There were no published times for XTOL …

Building a Rotary Processor

Recently I bought some Vision 3 film along with a development kit from Quiet We’re Dreaming, a new lab focusing on Vision 3 for still photography. I have, so far, only shot one roll and have yet to mix the chemicals yet since I don’t want them to go off …

My Short Trip To Toronto On Film

Earlier this Fall I took a short trip up to Toronto and was fortunate enough to catch some Fall color! I was debating on what camera to take (including digital) but opted for my X-700 with my 50mm and 28mm lenses. I took some Ektar, Portra 800, T-Max 100 and …

Oregon In 4×5

I’ve been slow to post these, which is a shame since I rather like these, but here are some of the 4×5 shots I took with the Intrepid on a recent trip to Oregon. I took with me some HP5, T-Max 100 (TMX), Ektar and Velvia. It was the first …

A few days ago I made my first attempt at trying burning and am happy to say it went pretty well! This was shot on HP5 at 800 on my Nikon N80 with a 50mm lens. I printed it on Adorama 8×10 multigrade Pearl using my Omega D2 with a …

The Ranch On Rollei Infrared 400

Last weekend we headed up to the ranch which gave me a great opportunity to try a few things out in preparation for an upcoming trip to the beach. My plan was to actually practice with the Intrepid 4×5 (and my new 90mm lens in particular). And while I did …

Comparing HP5 and Delta 100

After my mixed results with FP4 and XTOL and after playing around with HP5 at 1600, I had been itching to try giving Delta 100 a go (as well as HP5 at 400). The original plan was to take some shots at Spring Lake but I ran out of time …

Hiking in Santa Fe with the Intrepid 4×5

Earlier this month I went with a group of close friends out to Santa Fe for a multi-day hike and decided I really really wanted to take the Intrepid 4×5. It ended up being about 8-10lbs worth of gear including 2 film holders, changing bag, 3 filters, my Fujinon 150mm …
