Now that I’ve got fresh chemicals all mixed up and my scanner set up in my new home in the San Francisco Bay Area I’m prepared to continue sharing one roll per week in the spirit of Urban Hafner’s 52 Rolls Project.
Since getting back into shooting film here I’ve enjoyed the simple pleasures of using a beautiful rangefinder with an excellent viewfinder coupled with a gem of a lens in the Voigtländer Nokton 50mm f/1.5 lens with Leica thread mount (L39). In fact, I’m so happy with this combination that my desire for an M-mount camera body has abated and I would merely like to complement this combo with a wide angle lens.
This series finds me among the redwoods and by the shore near Santa Cruz, California. Technical details are:
- Camera: Canon VT DeLuxe rangefinder (Leica Thread Mount)
- Lens: Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.5
- Film: Eastman 5222 (Double X)
- Exposure: Rated at 200 EI
- Processing: Rodinal 1 : 100 stand for 60 min.
- Scanner: Epson Perfection V550
Disclaimer: I have not officially joined Urban Hafner’s excellent 52 Rolls project, preferring to host the posts here on my own site. That’s not to take anything away from that site or the inspiring work shared there.
