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).
Anyway, it was sunny (briefly) and I of course had my camera with me so I took the opportunity to get some shots. Continue reading “Not in Disneyland (#4 of The Thirty Six)”
Part of ‘The Thirty Six‘ project this year to try to shoot the 36 films I have in stock.
This is a part of film #4 which was Ilford Delta 400 35mm using my Voigtländer Prominent (w/Ultron 50mm) to shoot.
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
We stepped into this glorious old shopping mall yesterday which was devoid of any stores apart from TJMax (same as TKMax if you are from the UK) and a fruit n veg cart. It’s a shame that this has become just a walkway between the carpark and another mall, hopefully they will be able to turn it around; it did look like some work was in progress.
Only took a few snaps as we were on a mission.
I recently had time for a few shots around Burbank city centre and as it was dark I took my tripod to stand my Mamiya C330 on.
This shot was taken outside the Police and Fire department building and is of a large bronze statue which is a tribute to the Fire and Police officers of Burbank. It is by noted artist Shiela Cavalluzzi and was erected around 1998.
I’ve taken a low angle focussing on the firefighter with the Police officer hidden behind.
