I don’t use my Horseman 6×9 medium format back on my large format camera enough. I really love the results I’ve gotten from it in the past even though on this roll I only got 4 out of 8 shots that I think were ok. The 6×9 aspect ratio feels really natural for a lot of types of shots and at times I miss having my Fujifilm GW690 camera still too. Despite it only being a fixed lens range finder with no meter, the results were always extremely sharp and it made it very quick to setup and grab shots that I can’t do anywhere close to as fast with the 4×5.

These few photos from the roll still came out well enough, though I still want to get the next results sharper or with perhaps better control over the depth of field. I have a roll of Kodak 500T in the back now that I’ve been waiting for the right nights to bring out and shoot with. Hopefully I can get some good semi-foggy nights and car stuff shot with it. In general I haven’t been using my 4×5 enough for the past few months, but that should change as I have some projects and travel lined up this year.

More older photos that I shot on slide film that I finally developed. These were all back during Nisei Week in Little Tokyo at the Show Off Cafe car show. The show was really good overall I thought, it had a good share of cars that actually looked functional rather than only being show focused. I think my favorites were a lot of the classic JDM cars since it’s really rare to see any of them out driving in the wild anymore. Unfortunately I don’t know all the details for the cars I shot, but leave me comments about them if you know.

If you follow me elsewhere you might have noticed I’ve also been less and less active with posts on social media as of late. That’s likely to continue as I find less value in posting anything and instead will focus on posting here. Shortly after this I’ll probably post another roll or two of the slide rolls that were part of this batch of things I had been sitting on.

Yes, these photos are old, I shot them in May earlier this year when I was in New York and New Jersey for work. I wanted to try to shoot one cohesive roll when I had some free time and I finally developed them a couple weeks back. These photos were on a roll of Fujifilm Pro 400H with my Rolleiflex 6008. I mostly used my Schneider 80mm f/2 PQ lens, but also used my Schneider 150mm f/4 PQS lens a little as well. My delays in developing are due to me waiting to get enough film piled up and ready to develop before I mix new chemicals so I can maximize the amount of film put through them before they go bad.

I should be shooting more in the near future so the time between shoots and development should drop back down quite a bit. The other thing I’ve been working on lately is getting content ready for prints and for a possible photo book of cinema film shots. I’m trying to integrate a shop into the site so they could be ordered directly here, but that’s a little slow going, until then I’ll be posting works on Saatchi Art and if anyone has a request for a specific photo of mine just shoot me a message and we can work something out.
