jenny

this is the first photo i took of jenny, quite a while back, as we were out photographing the sunset.

since then, we have both changed cameras, going from TLRs to bulkier medium formats (especially jenny with her mamiya rz67!).

the one thing that hasn’t changed is me having a low speed film in camera at sunset. first photo shot with the rolleicord on kodak portra 160. second, with the hasselblad 500c/m on kodak ektar 100. and my hands are not that steady at 1/30th of a second or less.

picking our apples

i love that i can just walk out in the backyard and pick a [delicious!] fresh apple from our tree.

ektar

got a few rolls back from the lab today, which means this blog is going to have a lot of updates soon. i’m in a love hate relationship with my first experiments on kodak ektar. it’s so punchy. it’s good, but almost TOO punchy for me. digital photos are never this saturated (and i don’t pump up the colors, ever) so my eye is not used to such vibrancy.

these shots, in the midday bright sun are amazingly clear and the highlights aren’t even close to being blown. i had heard not to photograph people with particularly “red skin” on ektar and i can see why. alice does not have red skin and the outcome is not bothering me at all but another person might look on fire.

that said, i think anything that does not include a person from close by would look amazing on this film. enough warmth to make me think of hot summer days.

 

these were from one roll. more coming soon.
