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!!

Zeiss Ikonta w/ Ilford HP5

I had one of these cameras a couple months ago and was thoroughly bummed when it sold.  But I got lucky and found another one about a week later!!  This is an awesome little medium format folding camera.  The first couple shots were shot at the BBQ meetup we did a couple months ago(more coming soon I SWEAR!!!). And the rest were shot while working on a shoot with Tyler Parker(former podcast guest).

Vagabond 120 – Kern River

This is one of those rolls of 120 film I’ve had sitting on a shelf forever, just waiting to be developed, with no idea of what was on it… Turns out this one was from a camping trip 2 summers ago to Kern River for a friends birthday.  I could identify the camera based on the 6×9 negative size. And the film plane is slightly curved also so the negative looked a little bowed out on the top and bottom.  Also, the shutter was much slower than I expected, so a tripod would have been nice…
