I did some sort of trials with three cameras: Mamiya 645 AFD, Rolleiflex, and my trusty Nikon F100. I love the medium format negatives, but the Mamiya has something in the film insert that is scratching the film. Trying to figure it out, but nothing seems to fix it and they are not the easiest […]

Dodie lately.

My pug, my best friend of 14 1/2 years, will be 15 on Wednesday. I’ve been working on trying to document her life at this stage with my camera. I don’t want to forget anything and no one really knows how long we’ll have her. It’s so hard watching your beloved friend get so old, […]

from from the mamiya afd

My friend, Lea, has loaned me her Mamiya AFD. It’s a big, awesome camera. The only problem is that it has a line going across some of the negatives. So I looked at the film back, in particular the film insert, and found a metal piece that was slightly bent. I straightened it out and […]

black and white tri-x simulation: ezra

I got a chance to get some Ezra pictures recently. He’s at the perfect age in terms of cuteness, but it was hard work chasing him. It’s good for me, though, and it was good practice. He’s just got the best hair right now. I’m sure it’ll change soon enough, but for now, it’s adorable. […]

photos around the house – tri-x simulation

I love film. I don’t love the cost and inconvenience though, and the fact that no one local carries the film I like (unless I go up to Atlanta to Showcase but that’s a whole afternoon of sitting in the car in Atlanta traffic). Despite the inconveniences, I do still use film, and I do still […]
