An Old Friend

I don’t shoot my Mamiya RZ 67 as much as I should; it is heavy, bulky, and does not particularly like cold weather. But it was warm enough recently to take it down to the east end of the Beaches.

One thing I never seem to do much of is macro (close-up) photography. Last weekend I shot a roll of macro work on my Mamiya RZ67 and 65mm/4.5 lens. Being a bellows camera, the RZ 67 can extend quite a bit, and the 65mm can focus quite closely.

This spot in High Park has been featured below, but this time the image was created from a slightly different angle. I quite like the look of RPX25 in medium format!

Rollei RPX25 and Medium Format

Back to one of my happy places in High Park. I continue to be on a bit of a fine grain slow speed film kick. Rollei RPX25 is another amazing film, but you have to get the exposure right. (It really doesn’t like over-exposure). It has a nice snappy contrast, making it perfect for dull days).

Ghost #2

Another “ghost image” from High Park a few days ago. Something caught the dog’s attention and it stayed still long enough to register, more than the dog’s companions further back. Exposure about 1.5 seconds.

Ghost #1

This past Saturday on a very gloomy and dull morning I went to High Park with my Mamiya RZ67, slow speed fine-grained films and of course a tripod. Exposures were often 1 second more, so any moving people in the image would be a ghostly blur. I like the effect!
