First Time Burning a Sky

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 …

Comparing 6×6 and 4×5 Formats With Pinball

So I have yet to share my results from the hiking trip I went on with some good friends of mine earlier this month. The results weren’t quite what I was hoping for but I definitely learned some things along the way. I initially had a hard time scanning in …

The Continuing Saga of Virtualizing Windows

When I moved away from OS X, I did so knowing there would be some pesky apps I would not be able to find good Linux equivalents for. Essentially most anything related to audio, photography, and video editing. Yes apps do exist and I continually evaluate them (Davinci Resolve on …

Unfairly Comparing Ektar 100 to PANF

I only shot 1 color roll up in Colorado, mostly of mountain views from the car – but we did have time to stroll around Pearl Street in Boulder. I managed to get the same church in both Ektar 100 and PANF (granted at different times of the day) which …

Colorado In Black and White

Some of my favorite photos from our recent trip up to Colorado. We visited Devil’s Thumb/Winter Park and Boulder. I took mostly FP4 but tried to compare FP4 and Delta 100 in 4×5 to see which I might like better if I could take only one (I have yet to …

Trying out P30 Again, This Time With XTOL

Earlier this week I threw in a roll of P30 in my X-700 to try out. I’ve been trying to get outdoors a bit more since it is Springtime and also trying to prepare for an upcoming hike. It seemed like a good time to try out some P30 with …
