Bridge At Eisenhower Park

Scanned the first roll shot on my Yashica Mat! I had an issue with frame 2 so I will need to run another roll through it to see if it’s my fault or perhaps something up with the camera. Other than that, the results turned out lovely! My 120 holder …

My “New” Yashica Mat

Look a new camera! Spent part of the weekend trying out my new (to me) Yashica Mat and also took some 4×5’s using a film I have missed – Fomapan 200. I shot this just on our dining room table with my Chamonix 45F2 and my 150mm Fujinon f5.6 lens. …

The Old Stone House In Infrared

Yay! I finally managed to get results with Rollei’s IR film in 4×5! I’ve used it in 120 but have had a bit of trouble with it in 4×5. This shot as well isn’t perfect. The sky isn’t as dark as I would like (shot at the wrong time of …

Train Tracks Before the Storm

Train tracks somewhere in North Carolina we passed by during our vacation last summer. A rain storm came rolling in at just the right time for a pretty dramatic sky. I’ve been wanting to print this in the darkroom for some time and finally managed to do that yesterday. Shot …

Less Than Successful Darkroom Session

Well not all darkroom sessions need be successful I suppose. That’s part of the journey! I wanted much more contrast from this print, but “ran out” as I was already at a grade 5. I took this a few years ago at the beach and I over-exposed the film quite …

Cascade Falls Darkroom Session

Here’s my notes from last night’s darkroom session. Super glad Corey swung by Target to pick up the white board yesterday because that really came in handy. She also cut a mask for me so I could more easily burn in the waterfall. <3 This print has been the most …

Once Upon a Time In Hollywood In 35mm!

This afternoon Corey and I went out to see a special 35mm film projection showing of Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (also shot on 35mm film) at the Alamo Drafthouse! The movie itself was pretty Tarantino-esque so take that for what you will. Felt like a Pulp Fiction western …

Launched a proper portfolio site

Been trying to figure out the best way to setup a photography portfolio site of sorts. It’s been a while now but I used to work for PhotoBiz and honestly they make some awesome stuff. No it’s not a Squarespace kinda thing, but using the popular thing isn’t often my …

Learning About Paper Tests & Flare

When I was in high school, the way I was taught to make darkroom prints revolved around using test strips. The usual stuff where one uncovers a section of a strip of paper every 3 or 5 seconds giving a set of steps to evaluate how you will make the …
