This week’s roll is the first I put through my Hasselblad 500CM. Which means I should probably talk about the camera and my experience shooting with it. But I’m not feeling particularly enthused about that topic (incidentally, I’m not particularly enthused about the camera itself, so maybe that’s the driving factor behind my lack of […]Read more "In Development: Adventures in Film, Volume 36"
When I bought my Mamiya 7II, the guy that sold it to me threw in a bunch of rolls of expired film as well. I shot some of the expired Tri-X early in my “Adventures in Film” journey, but I switched to shooting unexpired film exclusively pretty early on. It felt like the process of […]Read more "Adventures in Film, Volume 35"
On my way back from a work conference about a month ago I took a detour through South Dakota’s Badlands National Park. I didn’t have too much time, unfortunately, so I was only able to do a few quick hikes and (mostly) daytime explorations. I wouldn’t have minded a few more days to work some […]Read more "Badlands, 2019"

These rolls of film were shot during my 30 Days with the Leica MP project. As […]Read more "In Development: Adventures in Film, Volumes 31, 32, and 33"
This was my first role of Fuji Provia 100F, and it was my first time shooting any kind of slide film in 35mm format. Virtually all of the film work I’d done up to this point (and since then as well) was with negative film. The only slide film I’d shot was a couple roles […]Read more "In Development: Adventures in Film, Volume 30"
If I’m going to start sharing again, these Throwback Thursday/In Development posts are going to get real throwback-y. I mean, one of the photos in this roll of film highlights a newspaper in a coffee shop that’s dissecting the immediate aftermath of the 2016 election. I haven’t shared a film photo since Trump got elected. […]Read more "In Development: Adventures in Film, Volume 29"
