Auto Micro Nikkor 55mm f3.5 – A Macro Prime?

The first close focus Nikkor for the Nikon F was the 5.5cm f3.5 lens produced in 1961. It did not have an automatic diaphragm, meaning it did not automatically stop down the aperture when taking the photo. The lens I am reviewing is the Auto Micro Nikkor 55mm f3.5 introduced in 1963. This is an… Continue reading Auto Micro Nikkor 55mm f3.5 – A Macro Prime?

Betty White died on December 31, 2021. I really feel that she was one of the last unifying elements we had in this country. Who doesn't love Betty White? On that day, I had a roll of Kodak Ultramax 400 loaded in my Leica M6 and decided to kind of dedicate it to her memory… Continue reading A Tribute to Betty White – Kodak Ultramax 400 at 200

My First Roll of Ektachrome and E6 Developing

In this Developing Adventure, I wanted to share my first experience shooting and developing a roll of Kodak Ektachrome. This was also my first time using E6 developer, and I was a bit nervous because I know color slide film is not as forgiving as color negative or black and white film. The Film Kodak… Continue reading My First Roll of Ektachrome and E6 Developing

End of 2021 Wrap Up – Goals for the New Year

This year has been a strange one. At the end of 2020, we had all hoped 2021 would be better, Covid would end and our goals were to get some parts of our old lives back. Instead, what 2021 has showed me is that this is not ever going to be the case. Wherever you… Continue reading End of 2021 Wrap Up – Goals for the New Year

Shooting Outside My Comfort Zone

There is a Youtube channel I have been enjoying lately by Bryan Birks, and in his videos he talks a lot about a project he is working on of classic cars and their owners. I always find the videos very inspiring because one thing I have mostly shied away from is taking portraits or any… Continue reading Shooting Outside My Comfort Zone

5 Shots – Hasselblad 500 CM and 150mm lens
