52 Rolls

Roll Five October 3

Contax G2, Kodak Portra 400, 45mm Zeiss Lens

First some double exposures that I like doing with this camera.

Roll 4 September 28 (above)

Leica M3, Zeiss 35mm F2.8 Adox Silvermax

This roll took me a few weeks to shoot.  I carried my camera with me every day, but frankly I haven’t felt very motivated for photography.  The roll began on September 15 at Bristol’s Porchfest, a gathering near my home where musician’s perform on neighbor’s porches.  The roll ended today (9/28) at Sakonnet Point.  I arrived at the Point to the sight of 35-40 Harley Davidson riders parked for a rest.   I captured a few shots of them with a point and shoot camera (after asking permission).  When they departed, the sound was deafening and the bikers took obvious pride in the the thunder of the herd.  Then I took my dogs Lilly and Duke for a walk on Lloyd’s Beach where Duke proceeded to roll around in the sand near (but thankfully not on) a dead skunk.  I chatted with several nice people at the end of the point, most accompanied by dogs happily dripping in salt water.  Aside from being a beautiful place, Lloyd’s Beach is dog lover’s paradise.  The dogs can run to their heart’s content.   Lilly and Duke are content to prance right behind me.  They walk to the water’s edge but don’t go in.  Duke tends to haplessly chase seagulls.   I love going to this place with them.  On the ride to the beach, they inevitably whimper.  I turn on Frank Sinatra, and it calms us all down.


Roll 3  September 12

Contax G2, 45mm Lens, Ferrania P30

This week I shot Ferrania P30 using a Contax G2.  I did some research last night and Film Ferrania has halted production while it updates conditions in its factory.  It started a new Kickstarter campaign for color film and the delays in production of both color film and more P30 are causing angst for backers.  It is a very nice film with rich blacks.  I shot it at its box speed of ISO 80.  I had to add 1/2 stop of exposure in Lightroom for some of the shots.  I am not adept at using the G2, it is for the most part a glorified point and shoot camera for me.  The 45mm Zeiss lens is great.


Roll 2 September 1

Leica M6, Kodak TriX


Roll One  August 25

Rollei RPX 25, Nikon F3HP, 50mm F 1.4

This roll was given to me by Domenico Dodaro during his visit from Rome.  I really like the film, it has a very fine grain.  Developed in HC 110 for 5 minutes at 20C.

35mm Film Shootist

Hi I'm Martin Smith, a amateur photographer that likes to shoot solely film. I use black & white with the odd colour image thrown in and mainly use a Leica M4-2 with Summicron 35mm and 50mm lenses. I tend to shoot anything I like, objects, scenes, landscape or street life.
