Wisdom Summer

Wisdom Summer

I packed up my Pentax 645z and headed to Wisdom yesterday. The winds where blowing, but the light was pretty good for the most part. I unfortunately forgot my tripod at home and found myself attempting to slow down my shutter to try and capture the movement of the grass, clouds and water.  I found out quickly however, that handholding a Medium Format camera at 1/6th of a second with the mirror locked up, proved to not be the best method.

Here are some images that I took yesterday evening. Its everything from Landscapes to horses to hiking in a burn area.

Equipment used:

-Pentax 645z

-Pentax 35mm f3.5

-Pentax 80-160mm f4

My attempt at a long exposure hand held. Not so easy with a Medium format camera!

And one more attempt at hand holding 1/6th of a sec!

I put a roll of Fuji ISO 400 Slide Film into my Nikon F3 Camera and snapped some shots off the other day. The C41 film was then X-Processed at the Lab and here are some of the results.

Shooting and processing film in this manner is the direct reason why you have all of those fancy filters in your Instagram…difference is, this was the original way to get that contrasty, heavy red/green look.

A couple of the images are in Black and White, which I edited in photoshop, but the rest of the images are pretty true to the scans from my film.
