A Place to Rest


A Place to Rest

In the past couple of months, I’ve moved from digital to film, which is much slower.  It’s a totally different mindset for me.  I hated film years ago because I couldn’t take a picture worth paying for.  Now, after doing digital, I more comfortable and confident, and most importantly, knowledgeable.  I continue to use digital, but sort of have a “year long project” to master film photography, from taking to developing both b&w and color.

The medium format film craze for moi started with the Holga 120 GCFN I got for a present.  As a camera, the Holga leaves a lot to be desired, like control.  Since then, I’ve gathered into my camera herd an Agfa Isolette iii (6×6), and with this image, a Welta Weltur ca. 1938, that produces both 6×6 and 6×4.5 with an insert.  The interesting differences between the two cameras is that the lens on the Agfa is from the 50s, therefore coated, and the one on the Welta is uncoated.  The visual differences are there, as well as how each handles flare and other things.

Shot on Kodak Ektar 100 with the Welta Weltur, scanned using the Epson v600.  Post in LR and On1 software.  Developed at a local lab for $5.00.

    1. I wonder if it is just my getting older that is pulling me to a slower lifestyle . . . but I also find myself drawn to the instantaneous quality of digital. Kind of a weird feeling, really! You know, decisions! Thanks for coming by.
