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 […]

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, […]

Three portraits: Fuji GA645

by Todd on July 25, 2012

I like longer lenses for portraits, but I could learn to like 60mm on this camera. The lens is just so good! These are snaps from Monday, when I stopped into the lab where I used to work. The first guy, on the wrong side of the light, is David, my old boss. The guy […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Pentax FA77

by Todd on May 6, 2012

The more I shoot with this lens on a film SLR, the more impressed I am. It’s quite nearly the “boke monster” my Zeiss 100/2 is, and it’s even pretty good at infinity. The two shots below demonstrate each of these qualities. Cat shot was at f/1.8, the other shot was at f/8, both with […]

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 […]
