Nikon EM film shots from a while back…. 2016

Finally developed two rolls of expired Tmax400 that have been rolling around in my camera kit for a while. Mostly from a big motorbike road trip around the bottom end of The Central Valley of California.


Beach at Jenner with expired film, Nov 2015

Took a stroll along the beach out near Jenner here on the coast of Northern California with the Leica and some expired T-Max 400 film (rated at 100, learning about expired film and loss of sensitivity- Every ten years costs 1 stop of sensitivity, so 400 estimated to be 15-20 years old is shot at 100). Also on the way out I saw this Cadillac that I had to stop and take some snaps of. Came out pretty cool. Theres something about old cars and old film cameras that just work together so well….

Nikonos 1st couple rolls, April 2015

Couple rolls came back and were developed from a recent trip back home (New Zealand) shot on the Nikonos with my dads old Nikonos 35mm that he traveled across the Pacific with.

Nikonos V with 35mm f/2.8, films: Kodak Tmax 400, Kodak Portra 400, and Fuji Pro 160S.

Sewing machine shop in Los Angeles, Oct 2014

Visited LA a while back to see family as well as visit the down town area and came across this sewing machine shop. The warehouse was full of rows and rows of old machines in various states of repair or function. Couldnt resist getting some shots on some expired Tmax 400.

All shots taken on Leica M6 with a 35mm f/2.5, 1990 Tmax 400 (shot at 400), developed in D76 1:3 for 15mins then scanned on an Epson V700.

SoCal in Spring

Quick trip to Southern California to see family and hang out. Went for a big walk around Belmont Shores. Some how that place is super alluring, with its relaxed beach atmosphere and the community in constant state of either readying for a party or chilling in the sun. Dont know if i could live there, but it sure is appealing.
