Fuji GA645: first frames

by Todd on July 22, 2012

The Fuji GA645 is a medium format (6×4.5) fixed lens rangefinder. It’s small, light and fairly automated…basically a point-and-shoot cousin to the Contax G2, in a larger film format. It’s got a very high quality Fujinon 60mm f/4 lens. I’ve wanted one of these for a long time, but they’re a bit expensive and difficult […]

by Todd on June 26, 2012

I finished off the last few frames of a roll that was in the G1 yesterday…

Contax G1 portraits

by Todd on June 16, 2012

I did a family session last night. Digital, of course, because I am far from having enough confidence yet to do such a thing with film. But I brought along the G1 and took a few snaps with it. I’m still having reasonably good luck with the G1 autofocus (there were three misfocused frames on […]

Workbench

by Todd on February 22, 2012

I’ve been so enamored of my Holga lately that haven’t shot the Bronica much at all (check out my new Holga site, BTW). There was a roll of long-expired Ilford Delta 3200 in it, and I had no real idea what was even on it. I developed the roll yesterday. Big ugly stripe across the […]

New shots on Ilford FP4

by Todd on September 19, 2011

Just sort of a random collection. Shot with the F100 and Zeiss 100/2 Makro-Planar (as usual…hehe…it’s hard not to use this great combo!). Developed in 1:25 Rodinal, for 10 minutes, in my new Kindermann metal tank. The feature shot of the truck, above, was shot at box speed (125), as were the first five shots […]

Metal Tanks and Reels

by Todd on September 19, 2011

When I first jumped into developing my own film, I thought the metal reels looked a lot harder to load, so I bought a cheap plastic tank with two plastic reels. They’ve basically been fine, and are indeed very easy to load. But one of the reels seems to have developed a problem, and my […]

Some New (for me) Ilford Films

by Todd on July 9, 2011

Sam was in yesterday for headshots, and I had some film I really wanted to try: Ilford HP5 Plus 400 and Ilford FP4 Plus 125. These were acquisitions from an expired film bargain bin, and I had never worked with either emulsion. So after getting a few digital shots in the bag, I broke out […]

Kim on Three Films

by Todd on June 25, 2011

  My friend Kim visited earlier this week for some headshots, and it gave me a chance to run through a few rolls of film. It was great fun, but it had been too long since I shot with the Bronica. This was the first time shooting with the new Speed Grip, and I screwed […]

Coop and His Dogs

by Todd on April 5, 2011

  Coop’s been a buddy of mine for a long time, and he is in fact the one who pushed me into photography by loaning me a copy of Photoshop shortly after I bought my first dSLR. We’re mutually bad influences on each other, encouraging the purchase of new, exciting, and generally unnecessary gear. It’s […]

Chain Link

by Todd on March 22, 2011

City Park pool in early spring. These were shot on Ilford XP2 with the Bronica SQ-Ai, developed by the local camera store, and scanned by me.
