I've got nothing
I rescanned some of my old Kodachromes
It had been a while since I used the Olympus OM-1n. The Zuiko 85mm f2.0 has been a favorite lens for a long time, so I put a roll through the kit while helping a friend take his boat and dock out of the water for the season. Olympus
Went tailgating at the MSU game. These are from the two rolls of HP5 Plus I shot during the event using the Leica MP.
My 1962 Minolta Autocord has seen better days. I had an expired (in 2006) roll of Kodak BW400CN (C-41) film in 120 so I figured I didn't have much to lose. The film looks ok, but the camera scratched the hell out of it on the way through. And the
The little Leica IIIf is adorable, tiny, and capable. Built in 1946, it's showing its age a bit. Also, it's kind of a pain to use, so I only drag it out occasionally.
I exercised the M6 by running a roll of Portra 400 through it, as it’s been dormant since I bought the MP. This was self-processed in Cinestill C-41 chemistry using the JOBO. Scanned on the V750 and processed in Lightroom with the Negative Lab Pro plugin.
I had the house to myself today, so I set up a backdrop and pulled out the strobes for a few large format film self-portraits using the Linhof. These were all shot with the Linhof Master Technika on HP5 Plus, developed in HC-110 for 5 min (Dilution B) and scanned
The Leica M3 is The One, when it comes to the Leica M line. I love it so. The higher-magnification viewfinder makes it easier to focus longer lenses, so I sometimes mount the Elmarit 90mm and it’s a fine combination. A few here are using the 90mm. The
I was surprised to find that I had 55 rolls of various 35mm and 23 rolls of 120 negative film stocks just wasting away in my fridge. I mean, look at this treasure trove! Rolls of 35mm film from my fridge I’ve standardized on Ilford HP5 Plus for
I’m trying to use up the rolls of expired TMAX 100 that have been taking up room in my fridge for a few years. I pulled the Nikon F3 out of a drawer, loaded batteries in the motor drive, and shot a roll. As usual, it was mostly
I love the way the Zeiss lenses for Hasselblad render. The 80mm Planar has been my standard and favorite for years. I put a roll of Tri-X through it today, just for fun. Of course it was mostly shots of Alice, who poses patiently for me whenever I ask. Alice
The gentleman who sold me the Linhof later sent me (at no charge!) a Grafmatic sheet film holder. The Grafmatic will hold up to 6 sheets of film at once and allows one to “rapidly” expose them. Here are some instructions. I loaded four sheets and went out on the
There are too many things that can go wrong when shooting large format (4×5) film. I made four exposures of my friends Steve and Bryan this afternoon. Two of the four were ruined right off the bat: The first, because I’d left the shutter open when
Mostly snapshots from our family reunion. Leica MP, HP5+.
Anyone who’s dabbled in large format photography knows the name “Linhof”. It’s one of those companies with a long history and a reputation for building some of the best 4×5 field cameras available. I’ve always been curious about them. Are
I’m either going to have to shoot this faster or stop drinking Diet Coke.

Sometimes it’s fun to throw a roll through the little Olympus Stylus Epic. Mostly self-portraits around the house because I was bored.
Now that I have my dream MP, I should probably sell the M6. If I do, this will have been the last roll I shot with it.
Out with the new MP and a roll of HP5+. I think these are all shot with the 50mm Summilux ASPH
Here are a few from the very first roll through the new Leica MP.
Tri-X in the Hasselblad 500C/M. This was the only shot on the roll that I liked. Alice (2021). Hasselblad 500C/M. Zeiss 80mm Planar. Tri-X in D-76.
