unMonday: back to basics

As I try to get back into photographing on a regular basis, it seems fitting to pull out my fully manual Nikon FE film SLR to get me back into the photography mood. No electronically emulated film with these photos –

unMonday: kodak film

I finally finished and developed a roll of Kodak Portra 400, which had been locked up in my neglected Nikon FE for over four months before I finally got around to it.  Film has gotten expensive, but that’s way too

the minolta story

It’s been a while since I mentioned my Grandma was sending me a Minolta camera, and I think it’s time to update you on that story. She sent me a magnificent bag of lenses, flashes, filters, cleaning tools… pretty much
