Film Project: Kodak Tri-X 400

I have two film cameras. A Cannon AE-1 Program and a Rollei 35 S. I don’t use either enough. Maybe it’s the cost of film and developing. Maybe it’s the always present iPhone or the versatile and capable Fuji x100f.

I’ll try to remedy this lack of use and rededicate myself to the analogue ways of the past.

I just received a roll of Tri-X 400. All shot on my Rollei 35 S.

I would love links and recommendations for blogs for either the film or the camera. Post them in the comments.

Here’s a few photos.

While there was some discussion this week about the merits of black and white over color on the 35Hunter blog, I decided to look back at some of my recent color photos. Red is particularly difficult for digital cameras. So I picked some with red. All were taken with my iPhone 8 Plus.

I prefer black and white. I don’t shoot much color. But I will say that I do like how the reds are rendered with the newer iPhones.

Film Project: Ektar 100

Film with an ISO of 100 is not easy to shoot in the often dark Pacific Northwest. Shooting it with a zone focus Rollei 35 adds to the challenge. But when it works, the results can be fabulous.

David Aureden did a nice write up on the Rollei 35 for Japan Camera Hunter a few years ago.
