I am really having fun with the PinBlad that I got from Andre Domingues. I hope these shots don't make you regret your decision!!! This crazy combination of Hassey back and 3-D printed cone and pinhole is so small that I've just been sitting it on restaurant tables as I eat. I've only had 1 person even notice it and he asked if it was a big GoPro. I like the way that you can see items on the table and the restaurant but only shadows of the busy restaurant guests. I am thinking of continuing the project at bars and restaurants around my town. I am shooting Ilford FP4 at 125 ISO, so the exposure times have been between 8 minutes to 20 minutes that works well with the time I spend in the places. #pinblad #pinhole #ilford #ilfordfp4 #filmisnotdead #sunny16podcast #negativepositivespodcast #ishootfilm #analogphoto #filmphotographyproject

First real test images with my dad's old 1950's Canon IV SB 35mm range finder. It has the <E-P> mark indicating that it was purchased at a military MP store. Don't know the history, but at the time Japanese made products were not widely sold in the US. Shot on expired Fuji Velvia 50 slide file. Lens Voigtlander Aspherical Nokton 50mm f1.5. Overlook Hiking trail Sonoma, CA. Makes me happy now that both he and my mother are gone that this camera is making new family memories.Processed and scanned by The Darkroom. #Canon #CanonIV #Fuji#Velvia50 #Voigtlander #Nokton50mm#SonomaOverLookTrail #bokeh#TheDarkroom

Weston Photo Test

Rainy day photo test shoot with Weston (the joys of being a photographers son!) and a question for the group.

Shen Hao HZX-IIA
Nikon 210mm 5.6f W
Fuji FP-100C45
Natural Light

Q: I shot this with the 210mm and I like the tight crop and spect ratio, but I also have the Fujinon 250mm 5.6f SF that I would like to use for similar types of head shots. The problem is that the Shen Hao bellows were at already max extension with the 210mm and I couldn't get it to focus with the same crop and aspect ratio with the 250mm. What can I do? different camera? lens board extension? 

Thanks in advance

Shen Hao 4x5 Test

Hello Everyone! I am also a newbie to the group. I do Pt/Pd printing mostly from 6x7 negs shot on my RZ, but I got a Shen Hao 4x5 last year and never used it until this weekend. I am hooked and looking forward to using it more in the weeks and months ahead.
