    more half-frame things

    These are fake in the sense that I scanned them as single images initially and the black frames are not the original ones, but real in the sense that they were taken next to each other and this is what it looks like on the negative. Taken with a Ricoh Auto-Half E2 that I still…

    in the cold cold night

    Shot with a 1963 Voigtländer Vito CD with a flipped rear lens element. That is, “all effects in-camera” as the kids would say. It’s a bit strong for my liking at f2.8 (as these are) – f8 or so would have looked better. But f8 would also have meant like 10 minutes or so exposure…

    Birds and Infrastructure

    Camera: Ricoh Auto-Half E2, at full speed (which is like a frame a second or so, when it’s fully wound up). Cropped digitally. I forgot which film because i am very well organized.

  • Do not adjust your set

    Do not adjust your set

    It’s …a thing …i made. i think it turned out pretty cool, for weird definitions of cool. The camera is a mid-80s (I think) Panasonic WVP-A2E color video camera with a single Newvicon video tube; plus digital CRT emulation to make it look right. The text is done in-camera (it’s a fancy camera). Some say…

    Auto-Half Narcissism

    New cameras must be used to take nudes first, it’s the law! Agfa APX 100 at very-much-not ISO 100 kind of light levels. Through a Ricoh Auto Half E2. Also I need a longer cable release. And maybe faster film. Maybe 😛The dust is part of the whole vibe, man.

  • The 1976 Ricoh Auto-Half E2

    The 1976 Ricoh Auto-Half E2

    …is just a wonderful break from all my overly professional manual cameras. It’s fully-automatic – but in a way that would still count as fully-automatic today. Camera makers have a bit of a habit of claiming things are “automatic”, especially around the mid-20th century – but this little thing really deserves that label. There are…

  • End of Summer

    End of Summer

    With a 1917 Kodak 1A Autographic Special, adapted to 120 medium-format film. The Kodak will at some point need an overhaul of its …original overhaul. When I got it, the bellows were basically bellows-shaped dust and bits of paper, so I made a new set for it. But bellows material is really hard to come…

    Leipzig with a Rolleiflex

    These are pictures of nothing, because I like pictures of nothing. On Foma Ortho 400, which I still find pretty neat.

    Fishy Circles

    Still learning how to use the fisheye lens that I adapted to my Reflex-Korelle. Well, not really learning how to use it, because it is super simple to use. More like learning what to use it for. Apart from the horizon directly in the middle, and exactly one vertical line down the middle, the only…

  • Infrared Experiments

    Infrared Experiments

    My Olympus OM-D E-10 Mark II has seen little use since I got into analog photography, and old mechanical cameras. So I thought, might as well convert it to full-spectrum (by taking out the internal IR filter) and have some fun with it. I almost destroyed the camera in the process, as is tradition (for…
