Week 26 | December 7 – 13, 2019

This week almost got by me. Not many shots. Travel day (Ellensburg there and back) with not great weather. Medical procedure (test/nothing) on Friday. Monday court appearance.

These are the weeks that try commitment. That test creativity.

Shots are here; let’s see if I can come up with five.

Ellensburg, Washington. December 12, 2019. Fuji x100f. Pro Neg Hi.

Four. That’s it. The fourth was a stretch. I did shoot a bunch of film so there’s that. Should get those scan back now.

Kittitas County | JPEG Presets | Fuji x100f

Working on my new jpeg settings. Shot some more in Kittitas County, Washington. Just outside of Ellensburg.

Lack the super contrast of the Padilla-style settings.

Ellensburg | JPEG presets | Fuji x100f

On November 15, 2019 I took a there and back trip from Seattle to Ellensburg. Weather is early pre-snow winter or late fall, I don’t know. But I grabbed the x100f with the preset JPEG for black and white documentary style photography (see recipe below) and got some pleasing, moody shots.

It’s the Darcy Padilla theme created by Kevin Mullins mentioned in a previous post.

Here are the shots:

Yakima River | Kodak Tri-X 400 | Canon AE-1 Program

The old highway between Cle Elum and Ellensburg, Washington, offers many opportunities to take pictures. Trains, rolling hills, curves, basalt and always changing seasonal colors make this long-cut a reason to leave the Interstate.

Here’s a few shots-some of my first after returning to film.

From the same roll as the Ballard post a few days ago, these photos show how Kodak’s Portra 400 renders nature’s greens and reds.

Week 16 | September 29 – October 4, 2019

More film this week. Many more shots with the Rollei 35 and the Canon AE-1 than with the Fuji x100f. I’m waiting for the Cinestill x-pro 50 scans to arrive in my inbox.

I also picked up some zines. Four from Conspiracy of Cartographers arrived and a few others are on order. Ordered some esoteric film from Analogue Wonderland
