Mrs. Iowa Globe

by Todd on April 9, 2013

I had a session with Jamie last week, and right before I left to meet her I received another Pentax PZ-1 in the mail. This was convenient, as I needed to test the camera right away, so I could send it back if there were any problems. An additional convenience was that there was already […]

Contax G-lenses: 45mm f/2 & 90mm f/2.8

by Todd on December 31, 2012

I took the Contax G2 out for a quick drive today, to finish a roll of Portra 160 VC that I started just before Thanksgiving. I’ve posted shots from the 45 a few times, but I think this may be the first time I’ve posted anything from the 90. I don’t have time to scan […]

Ektachrome 64 tungsten, cross-processed

by Todd on November 20, 2012

I had this roll of tungsten-balanced slide film laying around, so I loaded it up. Decided to burn through it quickly and see what it would look like developed in C-41. As luck would have it, today was a good day for photography. If one defines good as dreary, drowsy. . .even somewhat creepy. Hmm…now […]

Velvia 50

by Todd on November 16, 2012

This roll of Fuji Velvia 50 was given to me by a guy who does some of my printing, and it’s been languishing in my Contax RX for a long time. I’ve never shot film this slow before, and I’ve been continuously frustrated by not having enough light. So mostly I shot random boring things […]

Davis: in the studio with the Fuji GA645

by Todd on November 9, 2012

It’s been too long since I’ve posted, and I’m happy to say I got a chance to shoot a couple of rolls yesterday. The other roll was with my new Contax 90/2.8 G-lens, and hopefully I’ll have time to post some of those soon. Davis does some modeling professionally, so in addition to having a […]

Fuji 645, Reala, Ektar

by Todd on August 21, 2012

I’ve been way too busy this last month, not much time for recreational shooting. But I’ve nabbed a few shots along the way, and I wanted to post some more stuff from this camera. The people and the cows are Fuji Reala 100, the rest are Kodak Ektar 100. On top of still being busy, […]

Fuji 800, Pentax PZ-1, FA77

by Todd on June 7, 2012

Small gallery from a roll started a couple of weeks ago, developed yesterday. The shot of my son (Budweiser hat, LOL) is remarkable for its slow shutter. I’m not normally a very steady hand for this kind of shooting, but managed to get this one: one-quarter second exposure. I actually like the mixed light here, […]

Expired slide film is expired

by Todd on May 29, 2012

A few weeks ago I was given some expired Kodak Elite Chrome 100 by Roger, the owner at University Camera in Iowa City. I shot one of these rolls two weeks ago when I was at Rochester Cemetery, same day that I shot the Fuji 800 that I developed in Rodinal. I just got the […]

Canon A-1, second roll

by Todd on May 20, 2012

This is 10+ year old Fuji Superia 800, and I think it’s extra grainy due to its age, although it might be the Walgreen’s scans. Mainly I wanted to confirm there was no problem with the camera due to my “shutter squeal” fix, and it seems to be OK. Just a bunch of mostly boring […]
