52 Rolls Project Recap

I’ve completed my 52 rolls project, shooting a roll of a film a week for the whole year. I actually ended up shooting 59 rolls of film, a few were skipped from posting due to poor quality or just outright fail. It was a fun project, I’m glad I did. First some stats: Camera Nikon […]

Roll 51, 2016

Roll 51 is another roll of Kodak Portra shot on the Contax G2. The astute observer will notice another roll got skipped. Roll #50 was a bit of a mess, it was shot with a test camera that needed serious adjustment, nothing was in focus and maybe only half-exposed properly. Instead here’s a nice consistent […]

Roll 49, 2016

Roll 49 is a roll of Kodak Portra shot on the Contax G2, of all the different films and camera shot throughout the project, this might be my favorite combination. The Contax G2 is a rangefinder camera with autofocus and autoexposure, so operates similar to a full SLR, in a slightly more compact form. Shots […]

Roll 30, 2016

Roll 30 is another roll from my homemade pinhole, shot at the Golden Gate National Cemetery trying to capture flags in the wind. I’ve gone there before with that intent but that time ended up with this movie. Shots taken on: Vivitar Ultra, Pinhole, Kodak Portra 160 Developed and scanned by The FIND Lab

Roll 28, 2016

Roll 28 in my 52 rolls project was shot on a homemade pinhole camera. I built the camera using a cheap Vivitar Ultra camera, which is a tiny step up from a disposable camera. I removed the lens and added a pinhole punched out of a brass shim and created a custom cardboard slider for […]

Roll 27, 2016

Roll 27 is another roll taking portraits of the kids after playing around with double exposures I posted last week. It was an impromptu session, but still probably should’ve combed their hair before hand. Shots taken on: Bronica ETRSi, Zenzanon 75mm f/2.8, Kodak Portra 400 Developed and scanned by The FIND Lab

Roll 23, 2016

The College of San Mateo has an intersting Planetarium which I spent a roll of film trying to capture, it was 120 film, so just 15 shots per roll. Most ended up looking pretty similar, I preferred the shots with someone in them. Shots taken on: Bronica ETRSi, Zenzanon 75mm f/2.8, Kodak Portra 400 Developed […]
