My first couple shots of Type 55 Film – Shot on Burke & James 4×5

These are the first 2 shots of Type 55 Polaroid film shot on the way to Vegas a couple weeks ago. I originally scanned them in color with intention to change to grey scale in post, but I liked the tone of the film so much I just left it.  Film was gifted to me by Jason of @FilmPhotographic.  Check out his instagram feed, There are tons of great photos and info on there, and he’s also got a website coming soon!

These photos were shot from the same spot just turning the camera 180 degrees. I shot them 2 stops over meter suggestion, to properly expose the negative The second one is still a bit dark, probably due to being shot towards the sun that had just set.  Scanned on Canoscan 9000f with SilverFast Scanning software.

Nascar Auto Club 400 – Leica Minilux on Portra 400

A few weeks ago I went out to Fontana, CA to watch a few good ole boys trade paint and drink some beers. Of course I brought with me a few cameras! Here are a few shots from race…  I had a ton of fun shooting with this camera while I had it, but it was recently sold to @pa_dave.  Follow him if you want to follow the adventures this cameras will go on in the future!!
