bronica

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 […]

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 […]

Neopan Acros, 120

by Todd on December 11, 2011

I haven’t posted in a while so I made myself finish a roll of Acros yesterday. This is the first roll of 120 I’ve done with my new tank and Hewes reel. I can’t say enough good things about Hewes reels…so easy to work with. These were all shot at ISO 400 and developed in […]

Blue Sky, or Blue Sky?

by Todd on October 16, 2011

Just a few more shots from around Iowa this fall. I suppose I should look into finding a good white balance routine for film. The sky is a different shade of blue in every one of these! It’s so much easier with digital…

Thin DOF on the Tracks

by Todd on October 11, 2011

OK, maybe not quite as catchy as the Dylan title. Both shots were at f/5.6. Being new to medium format, it still astonishes me how much of a DOF difference there is with this camera. These were Kodak Ektar. I got a pretty nice roll this time, and have several more to post, but not […]

Iowa City, Autumn

by Todd on October 10, 2011

I had one roll of Fuji Astia languishing in the refrigerator, and I decided to get out and shoot it. Just a few random shots from around town, all shot last Friday.

West Liberty, Iowa

by Todd on October 6, 2011

More shots with the Bronica SQ-Ai, and Portra 400. All taken in or near West Liberty. All f/16 or f/11, 1/500s. The first one has a level of redundancy I find charming.

Bronica SQ-Ai: Getting Re-acquainted

by Todd on September 29, 2011

I’m trying to spend a little more time with this camera, and with some color film as well. These are just a few random shots off my last roll of Portra 400. I’m really liking the colors with some of the shots, though it’s clear I would need to get a whole new grasp on […]

Jake: 6×6 with Fuji PRO160S

by Todd on September 28, 2011

I think this is the first time I’ve shot this film. I had a half-shot roll in the Bronica, which I haven’t shot for months. I was shooting Jake’s senior pics (digital, of course) and decided I’d take a few with this old beast. I didn’t even know what film was in it, and I […]

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 […]
