Here are a few shots I took with my Lubitel 166+ Universal and Kodak Tri-X 400. I’ve been shooting with it quite a bit lately. It’s not exactly the easiest or most discreet camera to shoot some street photos with. In fact I get stopped and asked about it quite a bit when I go out and shoot. Its fun none the less. Enjoy!
So I ran my last roll of Fuji pro 800. It was tough to do to say the least. I’ve always been more of a fan of Kodak film than Fuji but the one Fuji film I did love to use was the pro 800. If you havent heard, Fuji cut the pro 800 and they are no longer making it. Anyway, I ran this roll through my olympus stylus epic and this was the result.
A friend of mine saw the photos I posted from my session with my cousin and asked me to do some shots of her daughter Maya. Maya did a great job. I’m finding that when shooting young kids its best to let them just do their thing and try and snap shots as they go. So here are a few I liked. These were shot on the Minolta x700 with my 50mm f/1.7 and Kodak Portra 160.
A few weeks ago a cousin of mine asked me to snap some photos of her and her son. I’m not one to skip a chance to get some trigger time so I obliged. My cousin’s son was being difficult and didn’t want to take direction so I decided to let him run around at the park and I snapped away as he played. This worked well for me since most of my shooting is documentary by nature. Tools of the day were the Canon A1 loaded with Kodak Portra 400 with a 28-80 f/3.5 zoom lens and the Lubitel 166+ Universal with Kodak Tri-X 400. Side note: Not a fan of this 28-80 f/3.5 lens so if anyone has recommendations shoot them my way.
I grew up in a family who was really big into sports. If it was of competitive nature we watched it or played it. Baseball was one of them. I went to quite a few baseball games this year. Here are a few shots from my time at the games this past season. Kodak Portra 400 and 160 through my Canon z135 point and shoot camera
Not much to say. I’ve been busy with life so photos have been slow in creating. Here are some shots from this past summer. Ilford HP5 through the minolta x700 with a 28 f/2.8 lens and red filter.
I apologize for not posting anything in so long but I had to put this blog on the back burner for a little bit. At any rate, thank you if you stuck around. Awhile back I bought a Lubitel 166 from my good friend and fellow photog Joe Aguirre (thoughtlesshero.com) I always wanted to try my hand at medium format cameras but specifically a Twin Lens Reflex camera. Joe was also kind enough to give me two rolls of 120 slide film to get me started. Another first for me since Ive never shot with slide film. So my first time using a medium format camera, a first TLR, and a first with slide film. Here are a few shots I made. Let me know what you think!
