Can't even get Acros100 in cans anymore it seems Fuji stopped doing 100' cans... I would buy some Provia100f in a heartbeat if it came in long rolls...
I was chuffed to bits when I found a couple of cans of Neopan 400 in Focal Point,Exeter several years ago-they took care of my 35 mm needs up to the tweens!
"He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.
Shot seven rolls of PanF + with the Hasselblads on Saturday afternoon in Drumheller, AB. A first-time visit, I will be returning next month when I make my annual trek next door to for the Calgary Stampede.
Some Nikons (F6, F5, F3P, F3HP, F2ASx4, F2A, F2 and a D800), with Ai/Ais Nikkors ranging from 15mm to 600mm; Leicas (M6X2), with Leitz glass from 28 to 90mm and a pair of Hasselblads (500c/ms), with Zeiss glass from 50 to 250mm. A bit of stuff for a no-longer practicing professional, but justifiable for a now-converted hobbyist who absolutely loves taking/making pictures.
I shot 2 rolls of 120 Kodak Portra 160 of a young lady at a beautiful outdoor location in sunlight using fill in flash with a shoot through umbrella and a radio trigger, I don't know how they came out I haven't got them back from the lab yet, but I enjoyed it
4x5 Ilford HP5+ in the Crown Graphic, everything handheld at 1/200.
Spent last Saturday down at the Seattle waterfront on a rare warm and sunny spring day. Very relaxing. Posted one from that outing in the gallery this morning, but unfortunately it became necessary to temporarily remove it. Will try it again in a few days...
"When making a portrait, my approach is quite the same as when I am portraying a rock. I do not wish to impose my personality upon the sitter, but, keeping myself open to receive reactions from his own special ego, record this with nothing added: except of course when I am working professionally, when money enters in,—then for a price, I become a liar..."
— Edward Weston, Daybooks, Vol. II, February 2, 1932
At lunch I went out with a friend at work for some "street photography" on campus - he took the pictures (I'm not bold enough to approach strangers for photos). Had a lot of fun, and gave the photos to the subjects. I think I now understand part of the allure of street photography.
