Rolleiflex 6008

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.

These are some photos from a few rolls of Fujifilm Pro 400H from my trip with Zab to the Philippines earlier this year that I finally developed. My developing has been a bit slow since I’ve been waiting until I have enough rolls to maximize the useage of a batch of chemicals. While we were there I mostly spent time shooting slide film, which I posted in this blog post, but I ended up shooting a couple rolls of 400H when I wanted to get shots in low-light situations and of her and I. Generally, I find negative film to be more flattering in color to people than slide film since it handles various lighting conditions better. It didn’t really help me in hiding my kind of out of shape figure though, what can I say though, the food was really good.
