  2. A Little Rain, Part 1

    20 Jun 2019

    The weather in NYC has been what some might consider depressing – cloudy, rainy, foggy, all around gloomy. I might be inclined to agree if I weren’t actually enjoying all this grayness. I’ve said it before – bad weather is fun for photographers Ilford Delta 400 | Minolta Maxxum 600si …


  3. Film Photography: Even When It Goes Wrong It Looks Alright

    23 Mar 2019

    This is sort of an addendum to my previous post about my Minolta XE-7’s dead light seals. My Minolta XD5 is suffering a similar scourge, yet I remain unmoved to do anything about it. So, here I am again sharing shots that turned out all wrong…but I love them so much…


  4. Let The Sunshine In: Light Leaks & My Minolta XE-7

    15 Mar 2019

    The Minolta XE-7 is one of my favorite cameras. When it comes to film cameras, I have a soft spot for Minolta for some reason and the XE-7 sits near the top of the heap. It’s amazingly sturdy and it’s heavy. And that shutter is oh so satisfying to click Mine…


  5. Kodak Gold Is Gold

    13 Mar 2019

    I don’t really do reviews. If I like something, I’ll tell someone why I like it. If I don’t like something…same thing. I don’t know why that should take 6 pages or a 35 minute video. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the people who are good at providing exhaustive…


  6. So Cinematic: My DIY Experience With Kodak Vision3 Film

    03 Mar 2019

    I’ve shot a few rolls of CineStill color film (both the 50D and 800T) and I really like the results. It’s not film I shoot regularly since I consider it a tad expensive, but I like to splurge every now and then I also like DIY stuff. That’s why I…


  7. Oculus800

    09 Sep 2018

    Another round of photos created at the Oculus. This time all taken on Ilford HP5+ film (at 800 ASA), shot with a Minolta XD-5 and Minolta 28mm f/2.8. Developed in HC-110, dilution E. For more film photography, follow me on Instagram.


  8. Ilford HP5+ for Architecture? Yes, Please

    07 Jul 2018

    Normally when I shoot architecture (outdoor) on film I use a slower film. One of my favorites for this task – no, my very favorite – is Rollei Retro 80s. I also liked Acros 100, but we know how that story has played out The last time I had the…


  9. Dark Winter

    13 Mar 2018

    Never too boldly declare winter in New York to be “over” any time before April. You’ll probably be wrong. Every self-respecting New Yorker know this, so I guess I’m just putting it out there for recent transplants and tourists. To bolster my assertion, I present to you a series of…


  10. The Magic of Ilford HP5+ Pushed to 1600

    01 Mar 2018

    I love contrasty black and white, so when it comes to film photography I tend to prefer films like Rollei Retro 80S and Fujifilm Acros 100 (I just hate the curl). I rarely push film, but I recently shot a roll of Ilford HP5+ and for no good reason decided…


  11. Good Times with Ilford SFX 200 B&W Film

    25 Apr 2017

    Oh, Ilford SFX 200, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways Ok, I’m not going to actually count the ways. Just know that I do love this quasi-infrared black and white film. SFX 200 often comes up in conversations about infrared film and almost just as frequently…


  12. One for the Money: Agfa Vista Plus 200

    08 Apr 2017

    Kodak gets all the love: Portra 160 and 400, Ektar 100, Tri-X 400. And if it’s not Kodak, it’s Ilford and Fujifilm that get to bask in the warm glow of film emulsion prestige. Those are indeed big names and they have unquestionably earned their reputations as great film manufacturers, but…


  13. Ode to the Olympus XA

    06 Apr 2017

    The Olympus XA is a classic. It is a marvel of minimalist design and, short of a flash sync port or hot shoe, is equipped with everything you need for a day of shooting. Keep in mind that the XA is a 35mm camera first introduced in 1979; that context…
