Decided to underexpose this roll slightly as previously I have struggled with the extreme contrast of this film with blown out highlights – I think it prefers the northern Europe weather. Continue reading “The Thirty Six: Film #15”
Seven? What happened to Six? I here you ask…
Well Six was a dud. I loaded a not-long-expired Portra 400 into my Mamiya C330 and something didn’t go right meaning the roll didn’t feed right and I ended up losing it; luckily(?) this all happened before i could even take a shot so at least I didn’t waste much time or lose any actual shots (still annoying though).
For #7 then I chose a fairly fresh roll of Ilford PanF plus 50 which I think is ideal for my 1940ish Voigtländer Bessa Rangefinder –
I had a reason to go down to the airport and took the opportunity to snap the wonderful Theme Building (would love to tour inside one day).
A few more photos from Film #4 of The Thirty Six (Ilford Delta 400 in Voigtländer Prominent).
These were shot in the waiting area outside of Disney’s Magic Kingdom and California Adventure parks. I was waiting outside whilst my wife was inside doing a few quick errands (I know that sounds odd but when your wife is a Cast member and you live close by, these things happen).

Part of ‘The Thirty Six‘ project this year to try to shoot the 36 films I have in stock.

It was my birthday last week and my fiancee asked me what would I like to do. I didn’t really have anything that I could really think of other than photography time. So, she agreed to accompany me on a photography walk downtown in LA and as she was looking for a few things we started in the ‘fashion district’.
My fiancee is someone who likes to have a plan and ideally an itinerary, by the very least a goal to aim for. By contrast I am happy to wander aimlessly just looking about and seeing what I see.
I have put two films through this camera and it has quickly become a favourite. I have been eyeing up Mirandas for some time but I didn’t really have what I felt was a justification so not taken the plunge and then I saw this one for $20 and thought “why the hell not?”
It arrived shortly afterwards and although its not the cleanest example it’s in pretty good condition. Continue reading “Cameras: Miranda Sensorex”
Haven’t been able to post much in the last week due to an emergency; thought I would just post this image which I took in Germany with the Vitomatic
