  1. Manhattan Blue in Black and White: A Bridge Less Traveled

    05 Aug 2019

    If you know me you know I love all of New York City’s bridges. The Brooklyn Bridge is, of course, iconic — the neo-Gothic tan stone architecture and hybrid suspension/cable-stay design are awe inspiring. John Roebling created a true masterpiece. And, for a number of personal reasons the Brooklyn Bridge…

  3. 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 …


  4. The Sorcery Of Ilford XP2 Super

    10 Apr 2019

    For as long as I’ve been shooting black and white film, I never gave much thought to Ilford XP2 Super I had seen some nice work done with it, so it’s not like I had a negative impression of its quality but I just figured that a chromogenic black and…


  5. 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…

  7. Dreamland on Film, Pt. 1

    20 May 2018

    I hit Coney Island with my Minolta XE-7, Rokkor-X 45mm f/2, a roll of Ilford HP5+ and a roll of Fujicolor Pro 400H. This is what happened. Ilford HP5+ Fujicolor Pro 400


  8. 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…


  9. 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…


  10. 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…
