Essence

These were shot on the Mamiya 1000S using the 80/1.9 lens, with the #1 Extension ring.  The DOF is about 1/10 of a millimeter wide open–Most of these were shot at f/2.8 as a result.

This is Rollei 400S developed in D76.

Compendium 24 – Zooming In

Most of these were taken on my top-secret new-old lens (Summicron 90mm Pre-Asph E55) which I had once but wrongly sold, bought again but then returned (mis-calibrated) and finally managed to find again in good condition at a reasonable deal…just CLA’d by Leica and “Optimized for Digital” nonetheless! (whatever that means…)

So I shot it on film.  😂

HP5+ pushed to ISO 800 and developed in D76.

Compendium 22 – A Galaxy Far Away

Found a half-shot roll from the summer sitting in the F100, and finished it today.

The first 8 are on Kodak Gold, shot on the MP.  The next 17 are on Agfa Vista 200 from the F100 (as an aside, the 50/1.4G is hugely underrated on film) and Agfa Vista 200 just might be my “forever desert island outside film”–too bad it too has been discontinued.

Anyway, if you hadn’t already done the math, the title refers to the galaxies apart that the summer and the winter now seem…

Compendium 20 – Who Doesn’t Like Superia??

This is Superia 800, which, to my knowledge, I have never shot with.  (Though I admit, I could certainly be wrong…) That being said, I definitely be orderin’ me some more of THAT.

This is also that crappy ‘ole Canon LTM lens, with a right-proper Kindai/Rayqual adapter…which was not cheap, but certainly lives up to the price.  I am definitely liking the lens a lot more than I should, considering the age and price…

I mean it only has, like, FULL STOPS! (…like what is that??)

Anyway, a lot of randomness here, but I hope you enjoy.
