Compendium – One

So I’ve decided to try something different…

Most weeks I shoot five or six rolls of film…then it sits on my desk for a bit.  Usually I’m lucky if I can remember what it is, and what I shot it at.  Throw in some digital here and there, and most days I’m not sure what I should post.  As a result, I’m going to try one or two “mass posts” per week instead…a compendium, if you will.  This one happens to be B&W.  They may be colour, monochrome, film, digital or all of the above…

I can’t tell you what I shot these with, but this is Rollei Retro 80S, developed in D76.

I hope you enjoy…

    There are some amazing shots here. It’s as if you’re looking at an issue of LIFE. That b&w look is just oozing out of these frames. It’s like the spirit of the mid-century is alive in 2018. I guess that’s why they call this film Retro. I just love the backlit one of Baby J and the Producer.

      Ha ha! Many thanks Karim; I was certainly pleasantly surprised with these rolls. Loving the look here…

      That backlit image is one of my recent favourites as well. Funny enough, it is the most technically “imperfect” shot of the whole lot–grainy, with missed focus, and I think it was at the end of the roll…

      But for me, it is what this photography thing is ALL about.
