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 […]

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, […]

First Plus-X roll

by Todd on May 1, 2012

Late last week I got a great deal on some newly-expired Kodak Plus-X film (discontinued). Yesterday I received my CLA’d Pentax MX from Eric Hendrickson. Seemed like a perfect opportunity to take the camera for a spin, as well as try this film out. I shot most of it pretty quickly during a lunch break, […]

Kodak BW400CN (C-41 process B & W)

by Todd on April 12, 2012

I haven’t had a lot of time to update my posts here, but I have been shooting lots of film, and loving it more with every roll. In fact, I think if I never shot professionally, I would get rid of my digital gear. The whole process of film is so enticing for me. Also, […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]
