First shots on 4×5. I’m absolutely blown away.

These aren’t perfect by any means. I took two shots of Camden and in the one that he was properly framed in he closed his eyes, and in this one he swung a bit far forward on the swing which made his arms an odd framing. And likewise the birdhouse …

Hiking Horsethief Springs In Ektar 100

Actually we didn’t quite make it to the springs. Instead we ended up camping on a rather nice vista with a nice and flat space to camp. This was my first ever real backpacking trip and I opted to pack light (good thing) and just brought my Nikon N80 35mm …

Random Photos & Hiking with Delta 100 (35mm)

It took me a while to run through this roll and as a result half of it is random photos while the other half is from my first real hiking trip up to House Thief Springs. This was in 35mm though I was originally hoping I would have had my …

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 …
