Pigeon Point Lighthouse

We tried going whale watching at the Pigeon Point Lighthouse a couple of times. We might of saw some blowhole spray off in the distance, but nothing all that close. The drive to Pescadero and the location is still quite beautiful and a nice spot for a picnic.

Bronica ETRSi 135W

The Bronica ETRSi is a modular medium format system, see my full Bronica ETRSi 645 review. The common film back that I use is the 6×4.5 that you can see in my recent Muir Woods set, this back gives nice consistent results. The other back I have is a 135W back, that uses 35mm film… Continue reading Bronica ETRSi 135W

Muir Woods

We went up to Muir Woods for a hike, the trees are majestic and the park is beautiful. It is a wonderful place to take a break from this crazy world and walk among trees that are over 600 hundred years old. The park is open but requires reservations to be made ahead of time.… Continue reading Muir Woods

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 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 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

Bronica ETRSi 645

The Bronica ETRSi 645 is a great budget friendly medium format camera system, a great deal in the film world. The Bronica is a high quality camera and fantastic lenses that can deliver amazing results. It doesn’t have the hype and lore of a Hasselblad, nor the cost, but can almost match it in picture… Continue reading Bronica ETRSi 645

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

Film Mistakes

I mentioned yesterday my desire for a panorama film back for the Bronica ETRSi. I actually purchased a 35mm back which I thought was this back I wanted. It wasn’t. I discovered this after shooting a roll through, there are two different backs for the Bronica system. The 135N back, which I bought, allows for… Continue reading Film Mistakes
