A cedar plank salmon smoking, is a back yard favorite - and on a whim I shot the event and the captured tones blew me away. The smoke tones, during this evening really gave way to the power of the monochrome - and this became a good learning moment of trying to recognize what BW can really capture.

Holgamods 612 Pan

I’ve been off the net for a while.  Last weekend, always an emotional event (see my March 28th post, been there done that), and i picked up a new camera and that had my attention also.  

Since shooting film I’ve been fascinated with going with a bigger negative.  But - with that comes economies of scale and I haven’t wanted to quite approach that subject.  Instead I decided to pursue staying with 120 - and that means going wider.

Enter the Holga Holgamod 612 Pan.  Developed by Randy Smith of www.holgamods.com - he takes a HolgaPan and mounts a large format 90mm f6.8 lens and all you have a stunning capable panoramic camera shooting a 6cm x 12cm negative.  

Here’s a test image - on Ilford HP5+@f32- and a video I put together of the camera.

Months ago - testing the nature of film and how it works against architecture.  Film is so foreign - its like putting on blinders and walking out side.  Digital allows you to confirm the capture - film says, "screw you" -- I'll give it up when I want too.  And that's the truth.   For a paying gig - well - that's a bit unnerving. This is at the University of Utah.  When the light is right - there are some striking areas to shoot. ...

Small sensored cameras most of time have slow lenses - coming back to full frame, be it film or digital, reminds me of the creative power, the f1.4 depth of field can offer.  Sometimes the background is too busy for comfort and the 1.4 allows the blur - or sometimes the attention to the scene is important to get in one area - and this type of lens allows that.  Or - it becomes creativity of its own sake.  Either way it becomes another c...

A paradise in and of itself -- let alone when you are carrying a camera.  Taken from the beach of the house we were fortunate to be renting for the week.  Can't wait to go back.  This is Ilford Pan-F 50.  I'm not a big fan as the sharpness seems a bit lacking - It was a an experiment of sorts - I'm now sticking to Ilford's Delta series.  Either 100 or 400.

The awning says it all - below it are the shops which reflects such, of which I didn't notice.

More Maui - not too bore, but I just can't look away; fair warning as more will be coming.   The Yashica is a joy to use and learn from.  This is Ilford's Pan f - 50 ASA.  It's hard for me to compare but I would like to compare Delta 100 or a TMax and see the results.

I had a chance to see this up and coming band — “the Accidentals” here in SLC last month.  I also offered to photograph them as I just happen to have the gear to possibly get some good images.  My brother Mark who introduced me to them also put me in touch with their Manager. In my off time - there are two genres I just love shooting - Bands and Sports.   I had to bring the digi - D3s - but on a whim I also brought my F100 loaded ...
