Indiafest, May 2017

It’s get­ting harder and harder — and it was already nigh impos­si­ble — to find labs to process slide film. With that in mind, I decided to try cross-processing. These results (Fuji Sen­sia 100 processed in C-41) are really pleas­ing to me! Granted, they aren’t that pos­i­tive film look — and they don’t quite evoke the won­der I have when I look at slides — but the results are more than accept­able! I like the tone of the blues quite a lot.

The flare in some of them is from the 35mm gog­gles lens.…got to remem­ber to use the lens hood more often!

Lizard Walker, November 2015

November 4, 2015 at 4:56 pm

Lizard Walker and I are col­lab­o­rat­ing on a long term project, and part of the process is spend­ing time sim­ply talk­ing. No agen­das or plan­ning, just time to refill the well that col­lab­o­ra­tion draws from.

That said, I will still have my cam­era in those quiet ses­sions and thank you to Lizard for these candids.

Vancouver on Film, May 2015

May 28, 2015 at 12:21 am

A week in Van­cou­ver with a roll of Velvia 120 and FP4+ 35mm is about perfection.

Mostly play­ing tourist and not too much explo­ration, but even that was reward­ing. Stan­ley Park is phe­nom­e­nal, Gas­town is great fun, and ran­dom side streets were well worth investigating.

On the tech­ni­cal side, I shot the Velvia with my Mamiya 645 Pro TL with the 45, 80 and 150mm lenses. I don’t shoot that cam­era too much these days - I have been work­ing with the GA645 more often for medium for­mat film. When I to man­age to set aside the time and energy to show the Pro TL, the results are amaz­ing. Espe­cially with slide film, look­ing at the actual media in real life is a treat. Not to men­tion the sheer size of the raw amount of data com­ing from the 6x45 negatives!

This was also the first trip with my Leica M3 and while I am not as quick with the focus­ing as I am with my A-1, I am com­ing along with the rest of the process. Even hav­ing to meter with an exter­nal meter on this trip for it, I still was able to shoot rea­son­ably quickly when the time came. And the look of the images I really love, espe­cially on those pho­tos with a large amount of fine detail and contrast.

A great trip, really wel­com­ing city and who knows? Maybe one day we’ll call it home.

Raleigh, February 2015. Tri-X 400 120, GA645

February 26, 2015 at 2:13 pm

This is the roll of Tri-X 400 that I picked up from the Imag­in­gUSA Kodak booth. I haven’t shot any medium for­mat Tri-X before (to my rec­ol­lec­tion any­way) and I was very impressed with the breadth of tone that could be pulled from the scans.

As always, I loved walk­ing around with the GA645. Just a great cam­era. So sharp, so reli­able — my only com­plaint is that it shoots 15 instead of 16 on a 120 roll (and 30 instead of 32 on 220). But being able to use the same equip­ment for 120 & 220 with­out adapters is pretty awe­some. Which reminds me.…I have a roll of FP4 220 that needs to be used!
