View of Mt Baker near Anacortes, WA. Got some density streaking during development and I didn't take a backup shot.
Awesome scene....and as all of your B/W MF work, the dynamic range is insane. I think this one deserves a print.

I like both, but the second photo is something else. Her pose and the resulting shadow is crazy. I will have to check out the rest of your tumblr feed once I leave the office

Here is a photo of my buddy from a backpacking trip late last summer. Cooking dinner along the shore of Green Lake with Broken Top in the background. Sous vide pork chops, rice/peppers and a view that was hard to beat.

Photo with my Hasselblad 500cm on Portra 160

Great shot, and awesome trip.

Although you do realize that this means you're the type of guy who brings a Hasselblad and some sous vide pork chops when he goes hiking? (Follow up: when can we go hiking?)

Couple more from that same shoot (just got the b&w back)

Rolleiflex MX, Fuji Acros




This was my first shoot with this Rolleiflex. Bought it off eBay for a pretty great price. It was mislabeled a Rolleiflex T, actually an MX (K4A). I was super worried it would have lens separation, etc., but it seems sound. Woo-hoo!

I brought the Hass gear and my buddy packed the pork.....at least he didn't have to carry the pork on the way back down Nice to spoil yourself sometimes.

Here are a couple more photos from that same trip:

I just finished scanning the first roll from my Franks Solida IIIe 6x6 folder. It was Fuji 400H and all exposures were guessed based on sunny-16, so I'm happy they all came out well (aside from two where I though I was in bulb mode but wasn't).

Beautiful camera (and shots, especially that first one)! I thought the Solidas had light meters, or maybe you chose to apply the rule vs. the reading? I was in the market for a folder until the Rolleiflex caught my roving eye...

Many thanks. Once in a while medium format captures the light in a way that 35mm film (and digital) just can't do, and I think this is one of those shots. Interestingly, I have a similar shot of a small empty street (on Reala) which shows the same effect.

I was looking up the various types of Solida III yesterday to try to determine the year of production but only managed to narrow it down to between 1950 and 1962. There are versions with a light meter, a rangefinder, neither, or both (very rare). Mine has a rangefinder but no light meter, and some sites say that version is also rare. It's the only one I've seen for sale outside of ebay, but I haven't been looking for long.

On my last trip to Edinburgh I had to work, which means taking my laptop and I couldn't fit the laptop, my K200D and the Pentax 645 or Yashica Mat in my suitcase, so I decided to take the risk of taking the much smaller Franka, even though it was untested. Usually I'd run a test roll of B&W through any camera before relying on it for travel, but this turned out well. I did some long exposures with an ND400 filter, and it's 52mm so will only fit on the Franka - the 645 lenses all have 58mm threads and the Yashica is bayonet and I don't have an adapter. I bought this camera as a relatively small medium format setup for travel - small for MF but with a fast lens and a rangefinder - and it looks like I made a good choice.

Yes they came out very well. There is life in the old film cameras, and if you know how to use them they will reward you.

From a trip a few years ago. 105/2.4 on expired Provia 100F, wide open handheld with MLU at 1/60. I have a slightly different variation on Acros from my Nikonos.

Here are some long exposures from the Solida III using an ND400. I think they were all 30 seconds.
