Kodak Tri-X 320

Boxes of Kodak’s venerable Tri-X 320 in 4×5 arrived recently. It’s time to load this film into the holders and get out with the Wista SP for some large format photography.

It’s been a long time since I’ve made images with this gear. Results to follow, subject to change, and always something of a surprise. Will post as things develop.

4×5 Camera, again?

Years ago, I sold off most of my large format camera gear. Was sad to see it go, but it seemed the world was going digital. I kept a few things, mostly for sentimental reasons. Then, I started using my old 35mm gear with film. Was very rewarding and actually made a few good images. Decided to take out the Wista SP 4×5 camera for a look.

There it is, ready to go after all these years. Results will be a while in the making. Probably start with some roll film 6×9 images then graduate back to 4×5. Stay tuned.

Vermeer Pinhole Camera

A couple of years ago, I purchased a Vermeer Pinhole Camera in the 6×12 format. Did some tests with it that came out fairly well. Fast forward to 2023 and it’s time to break out this unit again. Found a couple of locations with interesting views that I hope will lend themselves to the pinhole look. I use a GoPro as a sort of viewfinder because there is none on a pinhole camera as there might be on my Nikon and even the ground glass on my Wista SP 4×5 camera.

Results to follow in a few weeks. With pinhole, you never know exactly what you’re going to get. That’s part of the fun.

The story world begun…

Here’s another short vlog from my process of creating the story world of my novel, The Next Testament. The story is set in an alternative near future dystopia. But how did we get there?

An insane civil war that left the country shattered.
