Summer Days

I’m loving these long summer days. Beautiful light in the morning, beautiful light in the evening. Perfect for a late afternoon stroll though the park with the family and a crazy medium format camera that I’m testing. Enjoy the summer while it lasts! Images: Hasselblad H5D-40 + 80mm f/2.8 HC

P O L A R O I D

It’s been a while since I revived my now irreparably broken Polaroid Land Camera 450. But that camera lives on in a way, with its Zeiss Ikon finder now mounted to my recently acquired Land Camera 240. For my first pack of color film with the camera, I set up a light in my cousin’s […]

Small Camera, Huge Sensor

Logged more time with Sony’s powerhouse of a compact camera this weekend. This thing is a serious imaging machine! Do I love it? Yes.

Fuji. Film.

Do you shoot film? Then why didn’t you tell me this would be so addictive!!!?!?!? Right now I’m trying to run a different roll through the M3 each time as I get 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 […]

The Rangefinder

I’ve been searching for a Leica M3 for a good long time, and got a fantastic deal from an original owner who purchased this beauty in Munich back in 1961. I couldn’t believe how well he cared for it. I loaded the first roll of film I could get my hands on and started shooting […]
