Fuji Pro 400H, 6×6, full roll

by Todd on December 19, 2011

Coop and I went shooting yesterday with no particular plan, and found ourselves walking around West Liberty. I planned to shoot a few rolls of 120, but as usual, I underestimated how long it takes to screw around with this old gear (not complaining!), and I ended up shooting a fair amount of digital. My film work yesterday consisted of one roll of Fuji Pro 400H, and I thought it would be fun to just post the whole roll. So here ya go. :)

I didn’t do much of anything to these. Just scanned at 1200dpi, Unsharp Mask in Photoshop, downsize to 700 pixels, and a very quick removal of the more offensive dust bits. Color was reasonably consistent, though fell out more on the very last shot, for which I had a lot of sun coming into the lens.

Influenced in large part by your photos I recently bought a Bronica sq-a to add to the fleet. I really enjoy your use of the square frame and your creative composition in so many of your shots. I also particularly the liked the colors and shallow d.o.f. in your post “Thin DOF on the Tracks”. Please keep shooting the film and posting them here.

Hey man, thanks for looking in, and for the nice comment. :)

Compositional considerations are precisely what led me to the square format. My own personal prejudice is that composition is the most important aspect in achieving any sort of impact with a photo, and being a professional portrait guy, I tend to live and think at 5×7 with my digital gear. I wanted film to be a true creative exploration, so I chose the 6×6 because it was a far as I could diverge from my normal way of thinking.
