Fuji GF670 Camera with

Kodak Ektar 100 and Ilford HP5

Fujifilm GF670 Sold in Japan.  Discontinued Aug’14.  Mine is still alive and kicking.
Well, I’ve re-discovered film as a digital man wanting an analog past. (Joe Walsh would say, I’m an Analog Man in a Digital World).  Film is just plain fun from understanding which film stock, ISO… you need for the scene and slowing down in taking the image with the best possible composition in camera.  Tripods required.
On the Color side, I’ve tried Fujifilm 400H Pro, Kodak Porta 400 and now Ektar 100 negatives.  Ektar comes up on top.  Next, Velvia 50/100 to try as color transparency films, i.e. WYSIWYG.
On the B&W, I’ve tried Fuji ACROS 100 and Ilford HP5.  Neither one is a clear winner for my tastes and style.  Have Kodak Tri-X 400 to try, maybe it’s the one for me.
This is what I love about Analog – Film as it’s not the post processing that matters to “get the look”, it’s the film stock you use under varying conditions that drive your end product.  Note: I will have my first 6×17 images available next week using Kodak Etkar 100.  Yes, I’ll post the good, the bad and the ugly.

2017 Pinhole Photography Day

Today is that one day of the year for all Pinhole Photographers to get out and shoot their lensless camera.  Since I did yet could not get instant images given this is still an Analog World, let me post at least some images from my 6×17 RealitySoSubtle camera using Fuji 400H Pro medium format film taken in Xi’an, China.

Xi’an City Wall: South-side looking East.
B&W: I knew these people may be stationary or in a fluid state given my Pinhole Assist App had the exposure targeted for 2 seconds.  This is the Drum Tower north of the Bell Tower (Center of Town) and the start to the left to the Muslim Quarter.
Color: The Same image which I like better for the people movement and those stationary for 2 seconds in their life.

Fuji GF670 Film Camera: 6×17 Fujifilm 400H Pro

Xi’an City Wall:  Facing North to the Bell Tower (Green Roof).  FYI: Got an immediate Like from my better-half on this image.  I’ve arrived as she provides my balance in photography.
Mylapore, Chennai:  A quick diversion to a local Car (Cart/Chariot) Festival.  Got that look again.
Xi’an City Wall:  Didn’t plan this but after two separate shoots 180 degrees apart showing the massive, protective nature of teh City Wall – I placed them in one image.
Xi’an City Wall:  Yes that Red Lantern is really red. That’s Fuji saturation.  I decided to leave it as it was.
