A few weeks ago I did something I've been meaning to do for years: began developing my own black and white film again. After a 30+ year hiatus, the time had finally come. Developer, Stop and Fixer in amber flasks, ready for action. Up until last year I'd been [...]

This surfaced the other day and I thought it was worth a mention on the F6 Project. The F6 was won the Good Design Long Life Design Award. What's noteworthy about this is it's awarded 11 years after the camera was initially released in 2004. This feeds well into the [...]

Mirror-Up Shooting: It’s For Real

The Arrow Motel, Espanola, New Mexico (2014). Nikon F4s, Kodak Portra 400 In each blog post I attempt to roll in an application to the F6. The F6 is, after all, the reason for this site - and why so many people come here: to read about it. For this [...]

Pushing Kodak Ektar 2 Stops

By |August 27th, 2014|CLS (Creative Lighting System), Film Emulsions, Uncategorized|
