    stuck in the Mitte with you

    Shot with a Zeiss Ikon Contax IIIa w/ Zeiss Sonnar 50mm/f1.5. Focus on the wrong thing? Check! Also, the little Contax has a small shutter problem at higher speeds, which makes one image edge darker. The internet says this is because the shutter curtains don’t travel at the same speed. Not the easiest of problems […]

    Shot with a Zeiss Ikon Contax IIIa w/ Zeiss Sonnar 50mm/f1.5, on fantastically fancy brand new Kodak Ektar 100 that my fantastically handsome friends gave me for my birthday. I’m also not doing C41 development at home anymore – I’ve had the chemicals go bad twice now, and it’s not that much fun to keep pulling […]

    Because perfection is a scam, here’s another thing that only almost worked. The idea is double/triple exposure with at least one of them completely out of focus. In my head these would align perfectly but in reality I’d probably need a tripod and/or a back-focusing view camera. So this is not quite how I wanted […]

    The Royal 10 Typewriter

    This is a review or something, though with the added complication that I know almost nothing about typewriters. But I also can’t just let this chunk of obsolete metal sit here and not talk about it. It’s this: It’s a Royal 10, made in the US, serial number X-1081691, which means it was made in […]

  • First two-tone cyanotype test

    First two-tone cyanotype test

    Not entirely 100% successful but we do have yellow, blue, and green…ish blue. I have to change how I create the channel negatives. What I did for this was just taking the Cyan and Yellow channels of a CMYK image, but that doesn’t really work all that well. So this image is not the best […]

    Cyanotype contact print (25x25cm) from an inkjet printed enlargement of a 6×6 medium format negative. Still working on a practical UV enlarger, so I don’t have the stupid computer in the workflow anymore. But this is nice too. It’s on Boesner “aquarelle 300” paper which works alright, but doesn’t hold up during washing quite as […]

    Shot with a 1932 Rolleiflex “Old Standard”, which remains my absolute favorite from the long list of obsolete machinery I habitually carry around with me. On Fomapan 100, scanned negative.

    Will I learn to bring a tripod in 2023? Probably not. Zeiss Ikon Contax IIIa w/ Zeiss Sonnar 50mm/f1.5, on Fomapan 400, scanned negatives

    Not sure what happened here, with my 70 year old camera, at minus 10 degrees. Surely that’s a recipe for reliability if there ever was one. But I like how this looks ◡̈ Zeiss Ikon Contax IIIa w/ Zeiss Sonnar 50mm/f1.5, on Fomapan 400, scanned negatives
