5 Frames - Cheese

  • Where: Switzerland and Bavaria
  • Camera: Rolleiflex TLR Tele 135
  • Lens: Zeiss Sonnar 135mm f4
  • Film: Fuji Provia 100

There was a roll of Fuji Provia 100 that sat in my Rolleiflex TLR since my short vacation in Switzerland almost 2 years ago. I managed to fill the roll a while ago, and from then on it had its home in the freezer, until I decided to develop it at the beginning of this year. I usually shoot slide films rarely, which means I develop them rarely. To be efficient enough with the chemicals, a set of two rolls is needed. So far it has taken a long time to get those together. But given the current contents in my freezer, I think the wait time until development will shrink in the future. I do like the saturated colors and the high contrast caused by the low dynamic range.

5 Frames - 645

  • Where: A lake somewhere in Bavaria
  • Camera: Mamiya 645 Pro
  • Lens: Mamiya Sekor C 80mm f/2.8
  • Film: Kodak Portra 160

I have put in some effort during the holiday season to get out as much as possible and get some fresh air and a few snaps with whatever camera I grab at that time. Usually, that means that I walk around in the same area again and again. Thus, I have to find a way to enjoy the same scenery in many different ways. One way is to use a different camera each time, another way is to experiment with different film stocks. I chose to do both, adding “messing up during development” to my repertoire of possible variations.

Please note that my Mamiya 645 Pro used for the images in this post has a focusing issue that I need to fix. Thus, all frames are somewhat out of focus.

5 Frames - Wintertime At Tegernsee

  • Where: Tegernsee
  • Camera: Mamiya RB67
  • Lens: Mamiya Sekor C 90mm f/3.8
  • Film: unknown

One of my few outings with the Mamiya RB67. I love the camera, but it is literally a pain in the neck, given how heavy it is. These are images from the wintertime a couple of years ago that I dug up from my chaos archive.

5 Frames - Snow!

  • Where: Somewhere in Bavaria
  • Camera: Hasselblad 503cx
  • Lens: Zeiss Planar 80mm f/2.8
  • Film: unknown

Probably one of my first trial-outings with the Hasselblad 503cx. These are images from the wintertime a couple of years ago that I dug up from my chaos archive.

4 Frames - Oh No! Not Again!

  • Where: New York
  • Camera: Fuji GW690 III
  • Lens: EBC Fujinon 90mm f/3.5
  • Film: unknown

I have shot the Big Apple on Leica M (both 4-P and 6), Hasselblad 503CXi, Rolleiflex Tele 135, and Fuji GW690 in both color and black and white negatives. All of those rolls have their respective five frames posts on this blog, except for this last roll for black and white 120 film. This makes it really hard not to be repetitive, and especially the frames from this roll are very similar to the ones from a previous color post. I tried to pick images that have a somewhat different perspective, which lead to only four frames of the eight that the Fuji GW690 III can squeeze in on one roll. This is the last set that I dug up from my chaos archives, and the last New York post until I get another chance to visit.
