I thought I had put the kabosh on this blog. Cancelled the domain. Now I am having second thoughts. So, here is a recent photo, taken with a folding camera, the Perkeo II, ca. 1952, using Portra 400 120mm film.
Tag: Portra 400
This has been a crazy several weeks . . . primarily, car problems leading to searching for a new one to replace the one which died, and finally taking the plunge. I got what I wanted.
However, the fact is, life came to a halt. No time for photography, only time to take a quick peek at what I have already done. Today, I got out and about, but this is from a roll I did a couple of weeks ago.
A sycamore tree with new leaves! How glorious is that? Taken with Portra 400, Voigtlander RF, Heliar 105mm, 6×9 folder.
While out shooting with the Voigtlander, I was just trying to use film up – I needed to see if there were any light leaks in the bellows. Light tight! This was done with Portra 400, and converted to B&W in Nik.
I’ve a small collection of older cameras. This is a portrait of one of my favorite people, taken with a Voigtlander RF, a folder from the 1930s. It has a Heliar uncoated lens, 105mm, which is appropriate for the 6×9 camera size. The film is Portra 400, 120.
I have done some post processing here, cleaning up a streak running through the film, as well as erasing bits and pieces of odd detritus. I also pushed the color a bit, as the original image was rather pale – perhaps a bit overexposed.
