International

I have been using a new to me Canon 7 recently as you may have guessed from my post here.  I have not done a full review as really I think there are plenty of articles about this camera and it’s brothers & sisters.

It is possibly the most fully featured rangefinder I have used and it is really nice.  I am debating whether I really need yet another rangefinder in my tool-set however and I am sure that debate will continue.

In the meantime I will continue to try it out and find out what (if anything) turns me off.

While I was at one of my customers before the whole lock-down thing came a long I took it on a lunchtime walk. I found this old truck parked in a residential area close by and took this close up image.  I like the way that there is just enough rust with the paintwork old and faded.  Part of me wonders if that is natural or through some clever technique to make it look just like that; maybe a bit of both.

Out in the country with the Petri

I took these a while ago and hadn’t posted them until now.  They were shot with the Petri 2.8 Color Super on Fuji Pro 400 and came out a little on the hazy side for some reason and I hesitated to share.

I suspect that the lens has some issues which weren’t fully apparent previously which I guess a good clean might resolve. Continue reading “Out in the country with the Petri”

Mamiya 35 Executive

As well as being roll 22 and 24 of my 36, this is also a review on another new to me camera; the Mamiya 35 Executive.

I am not really sure why I bought this as I have several other 35mm rangefinders two of which are very good and my ‘favourite’ brand.  But Mamiya is also a trusted brand for me and when browsing recently to find a replacement for my soon-to-be-dead Mamiya C330, I stumbled across this.  It wasn’t cheap so I can’t use that to justify my purchase.

I didn’t actually know that Mamiya made 35mm rangefinders and so seeing this, I was intrigued.  Continue reading “Mamiya 35 Executive”

The Thirty Six: Film #16

Like the Voigtländer Prominent, my Miranda Sensorex  has just had a CLA and for it’s first run out I used FujiPro 400 film.

The Thirty Six: Film #8

Another roll through my Voigtlander Prominent? Well not quite, this is a different Prominent; slightly older than the one used on this post. That one is away for a CLA so using the spare and prepping it for sale once the other comes back.

Film of choice this time was Kodak Portra 160

 

This was the first time using the 100mm Dynaron lens and I had mixed results which I don’t quite understand; some of the shots are perfectly focused others are just waaay off. I’m not sure whether it was operator error, an RF issue or if the lens wasn’t properly mounted – Continue reading “The Thirty Six: Film #8”

I love Keld Helmer-Petersen

My new favorite photographer is ‘Keld Helmer-Petersen’.  I don’t think I was aware of him until recently, at least I wasn’t consciously aware, some of the images I have seen in the book that I recently purchased seem strangely familiar.  Maybe I have seen them in other books or in a gallery or perhaps online and not registered the artist.

Last month I responded to a post by Blake Andrews at B  about Erata photography books on offer and went to look on Powell’s site; indeed there were discounted books so took the plunge and bought ‘Keld Helmer Petersen 122 Colour Photographs‘  for under $20.

Until then I had never heard of Errata Books on Books; Continue reading “I love Keld Helmer-Petersen”

Grey May

This is another post in my series for this year called the  Colours of 2018 and the month of may was grey (not gray).

Shooting things that are grey can be a little uninspiring but a good challenge; here are my picks.

So there is more than grey in this shot I know, but I like the coloured accents and the shadow

Making the most of the depth of field on my Miranda Sensorex here

35mm Film Shootist

Hi I'm Martin Smith, a amateur photographer that likes to shoot solely film. I use black & white with the odd colour image thrown in and mainly use a Leica M4-2 & M3 with Summicron 35mm and 50mm lenses. I tend to shoot anything I like, objects, scenes, landscape or street life. My film of choice now is Fomapan 100 Classic.
