    Film Orange is the New Black and White (correction factor)

    I made a filter holder out of a Plastic Case for a CF memory Card. I used the Polaroid Orange filter made for the folding pack cameras. This filter turns the 600 B&W into a high-contrast response. Too high for shooting people. Some interesting effects. I am going back to the color correction...

    MAS, Antwerp

    MAS = Museum by the Stream (Scheldt) A kind of special looking building. Worth a visit on its own, plus there's access to the observation platform on the roof where you get a great view of the city and the Scheldt. This is from a visit some time ago

    Caldwell House, Cataloochee Valley, GSMNP

    My wife and I explored a new place we hadn't been in the GSMNP. The Catalooche Valley was very beautiful and worth the extra time to visit. These images are of the Hiram Caldwell house, built in 1903. Shot with the Rokinon 20mm 1.8 on the K1.

    Analog fun

    Today I had a relaxing afternoon in my chemistry corner. From simple substrates I assembled an Agfa A300 fixer and two classic Kodak D-23 and D-76 developers. Do any of you still play with assembling photographic concoctions on your own? For me this hobby is an excellent relaxation, better than...

    Square Format

    One of the things I miss in not shooting film anymore is medium format, especially the square format of so many great cameras. Rather than go to the expense of finding a still functional camera system (they were all systems) I thought I’d experiment a bit with my post processing software…...

    A question for all those who shoot B&W...

    I usually shoot color pictures. Do you use the B&W mode (if your camera has one) or do you change the exposure to B&W in a post processing program? Just curious as I had changed one exposure I made using my software program and a lot of people thought it was a really nice image. I'm wondering...

    The Urban Setting/Landscape

    I'm thinking of urban shots not really considered "street" (which I always think of -- perhaps erroneously -- as exclusively people shots), shots of buildings of interest maybe, the "urban landscape" in its kaleidoscopic entirety. Albuquerque is hardly urban in the same sense that major big...

    An Evening in the City

    I decided to do something a bit different this evening. I had about an hour to kill before an appointment and wanted to do a short bit of exploring and creating. With only the Super Takumar 105 f/2.8 and Super Takumar 50 f/1.4 for the K1, I set out for some street shooting. I decided to shoot...

    I am curious, Leica...

    Was out and about the other day. Here are two examples of the same image. One is the raw processed in Capture One with it's idea of a yellow filter applied. The next is the SOOC B&W image with a yellow filter effect applied in camera from the M 240. Tell me which you like better.

    This photo dates back to about 1924. The father is John F. Pimentel. He immigrated to America from the Azores through Ellis Island in the first decade of 20th century. His family moved to Fall River, Massachusetts, because the city had a large community of Portuguese immigrants. This photo...

    Salmon Fishing on the River Tamar in the 1970's with a Mamiya Press 6x9

    Some time in the mid 1970's I spent a morning with some local salmon netters on the tidal section of the River Tamar on the border of Devon and Cornwall. This trade is now prohibited and has been for some years with the fall in the fish population and that ban is due to remain in force for many...

    Finding my way back into things (monochrome)

    With virtually no photography under ny belt in the last few months I've been experimenting with the jpeg settings in camera, initially on my Leica D-Lux typ 109. These are some results from the monochrome photo style setting with some tweaks to contrast. They have had minimal processing in GIMP...

    International Ferry

    A few weeks ago I went to Los Ebanos, TX to get shot of the international ferry that crosses the Rio Grande between the US and Mexico. This is the last hand pulled cable ferry on the Rio Grande--and some say in the US. There are full customs stations on both sides of the river. This ferry, which...

    Concert Photography in the age of Covid19

    So last night one of my favorite singer/songwriters held a performance. I bought a ticket and logged in for the 45 minute show. Since it was the first time I'd seen her live, I had to take photos, yes? Even had a blurry shot or two just as in a non-virtual concert. It was an odd feeling and...
