The Second Roll Of Film

with 21 comments

Second roll with my Leica M3, this time in black and white. This camera is way too much fun.

Next up from the lab: A roll of Fuji 160S. Stay tuned =)

  9. Very nice series, many a journalists have used this camera for great Photo-Journalism. Keep up the tradition it is working excellently with your direction.

  10. Another stunning roll of film. Makes me want to pop film into my old camera and go for a walk.

  11. It’s just a shame the camera doesn’t come with your eye for composition. 😉

  12. that last one is killer!

  13. great images…every pic tells a story or in some cases poses a question-love them!

  14. Dang man! Great shots and, well, everything. You’re putting the unicorn to good use, and I can’t imagine more thankful hands.

    I also second Kim’s comments – A nice way to say that even the most legendary of cameras don’t come with a roll of talent.

    Just tell me you’ll lemme shoot a roll in November with it, bro. 😉

  15. Appreciate the comments!

  16. […] a feel for the camera. These are scans from a roll of Fuji 160s. So far I think I’m liking Tri-X the most for shooting with the M3, but this color negative film is pretty nice […]

  17. I prefer T-Max 400 personally to Tri-X. The fun thing I like about film is seeing how different films render things. I think it helps one to develop better post processing skills! Great shots Jon these are great!

  18. I really love the picture (57140015) with a bridge in it. where is the location?

    • Thanks! That was taken at Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. I’ve been going there since I was a little kid.

  19. Good stuff! Really prefer the B&W though. Wonder if I can get this feel from digital…
