I’ve been using these Lightroom presets for a while. I’ve mentioned them before and they bear mentioning again. They are Micky G’s Black & White Presets for Lightroom. I’ve often wondered how good/accurate they are. I’ve been pleased with them, to say the least. While I was out shooting last week, I came upon the scene pictured here and took a number of photos with my 645e. At that time, I just happened to remember that I wanted to make…

Kodak Tech Pan 25 – Expired April 1999 – Rodinal 1:300 I think that those of us who have been shooting film for quite some time tend to romanticize our favorite films. I know that I do. For me, there were two films that I always tried to keep on hand. Agfa Pan 25 and Kodak Tech Pan 25. Yeah, I was, and still am a big fan of very low ISO, tight-grained film. You could probably do the same…

Ilford Delta 400 – Rodinal 1:50 – Mamiya 645e It has been a slow week around the blog. I’ve not had much to say and I’ve not had the opportunity to get out and shoot at all. This week has been kind of busy in the evenings. Those couple of evenings that I was free to go and shoot have been quite dreary or rainy. I have quite a few rolls of film 120 film in the vegetable draw of…

Chris seems to have knack for asking those interesting questions that cannot be answered with a simple yes or no, but hey, it keeps me in business. 🙂 I’ve been pondering this since he asked, thinking about my…

Leica M6 – Ilford HP5 – Rodinal 1:50 Let’s keep this short and sweet. Sometimes a scene grabs you and you have to capture it. I saw this as I was leaving work. It had been raining all day and was rather dreary when I left, sometime around 5:00 PM. Usually the parking spaces would be full and, as it was around 5:00 PM … let’s just say that good parking spaces were easy to come by. As I walked…

Leica M6 – Ilford HP5 – Rodinal 1:50 Within a few days of arriving in Charleston, I remember thinking: OMG! What is that smell? There must be a paper mill nearby. Sure enough, there was, right in the same neighborhood where I worked. Great! People who had worked in the area for some time assured me that I’d get used to. They assured me that I wouldn’t even notice after a while. Well, they didn’t say exactly how long that…
