Roll 57, 2016

Roll #57 is on the penultimate week to my 52 rolls project, since I’m right down to the end and ending at around 60 total rolls, I can pick and choose a little the last ones to post. I have a few rolls I’ve shot for some series I’m putting together, so skipping to this… Continue reading Roll 57, 2016

Roll 53, 2016

Roll 53 is a roll of JCH Streetpan taken with my Nikon FM2. A set of shots from a couple of hikes to Lost Lake in Whistler, British Columbia. The weather was a bit rainy and cold, but it didn’t stop a couple from jumping in. We were just standing there taking a few shots… Continue reading Roll 53, 2016

Roll 52, 2016

Roll 52 is a roll of Kodak Portra shot on a Contax G2. The roll was one of several I shot up in Whistler Canada for our companies annual meetup, see Grand Meetup 2016 for the full series. Technically this is the 52nd roll on the year, however not the 52nd week since I skipped… Continue reading Roll 52, 2016

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… Continue reading Roll 51, 2016

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… Continue reading Roll 49, 2016

Roll 48, 2016

Roll 48 is a roll of Fuji Natura 1600, which turned out very muddy and not that interesting. I shot the film previously in Roll 14 with much better results. Even though its 1600, looks like it really wants a lot of light to make good exposures. The first few shots of the roll were… Continue reading Roll 48, 2016

Roll 47, 2016

Roll 47 is a roll of Kodak Portra shot on a Contax G2. The Contax is a wonderful camera with a fantastic Zeiss lens system. I think most of the final batches of photos to close out the 52 rolls project will be from this camera. Shots of a luxury apartment complex being built in… Continue reading Roll 47, 2016

Roll 46, 2016

Roll 46 is a roll of JCH Streetpan shot with a Contax lens on the Yashica FR-1. My previous shots with the Yashica were a bit spotty which I blamed the lens for, after looking at this roll I think it might be the photographer. For this roll I didn’t use the camera meter but… Continue reading Roll 46, 2016

Roll 45, 2016

Roll 45 is a roll of Kodak Portra shot on a Fujifilm Klasse. The Klasse is a pretty sophisticated point-and-shoot camera with a high quality fixed lens. I quite like this camera but it’s a bit too expensive for what it is, and in my camera reduction mode I’ve already sold it off. The Klasse… Continue reading Roll 45, 2016

Roll 44, 2016

Roll 44 is once again a roll of Kodak Portra shot on Nikon FM2n. I skipped roll 43 which was fairly mediocre, part of some film camera tests, not all tests pass. A set of shots from a few series I’m working on around the change in the Bay Area, including lots of construction and… Continue reading Roll 44, 2016

Roll 42, 2016

Roll 42 is a roll of Kodak Portra shot on a Nikon FM2n. The roll was supplemental shots for my Silicon Valley project taken overlooking the salt flats in Redwood City, and Moffett Field in Mountain View. Shots taken on: Nikon FM2n, Nikkor 50mm f/1.8, Kodak Portra 400 Developed and scanned by Little Film Lab

Roll 41, 2016

Roll 41 is a roll of Kodak Portra shot on a Nikon FM2n, which I just noticed is the first roll I’ve shot on this camera this series, which probably means I miss labeled something at some point. Unlike the last few rolls, I’m pretty happy how these turned out, a Nikon manual camera with… Continue reading Roll 41, 2016

Roll 37, 2016

Roll 37 is one of my more disappointing rolls from the series. It is a roll of Ilford HP5 shot on the Bronica ETRSi. I’m not sure if it’s the subject, film, camera, or what but I don’t really like anything coming off this roll, for whatever reason I’m just not feeling them. Shots taken… Continue reading Roll 37, 2016

Roll 36, 2016

Roll 36 was shot at the golf course at Half Moon Bay. My wife was at the spa getting a massage, I was out walking and taking photos; each with our own therapy and relaxtion. Shots taken on: Olympus Trip 35, Zuiko 40mm f/2.8, Kodak Portra 400 Developed and scanned by Little Film Lab

Roll 34, 2016

Roll 34 in my 52 rolls project is a roll of black and white film. Surprisingly, I haven’t shot any black and white in many many years; it was all I shot when I first started. I’m training for a half-marathon in October and started working on improving my speed at the local high school… Continue reading Roll 34, 2016

Roll 32, 2016

Roll 32 is another roll of Kodak Portra shot on the Olympus Trip 35, see more about this wonderful little camera from Roll 32 last week. Shots taken on: Olympus Trip 35, Zuiko 40mm f/2.8, Kodak Portra 400 Developed and scanned by Little Film Lab

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 29, 2016

Roll 29 is a roll from my homemade pinhole I wrote about last week, took it out on a trip to our farmer’s market. 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… Continue reading Roll 28, 2016

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 interesting 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… Continue reading Roll 23, 2016
