March – 12 Cameras 12 Months

I’ve been delinquent posting on the blog about my camera project. January & February flew by very quickly. I’ll follow up with the Mamiya ZM & the Canonet QL17 G-III.

The Ansco Speedex has been a longtime favorite camera in my collection. There’s several reasons to make it a favorite … the biggest is that the Ansco shoots 120 film, specifically 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 square w 12 images. I like that the camera folds compact for easy storing in a camera bag or jacket pocket. Then finally, the ease of use also makes it a favorite. The Ansco is fully manual with no battery and I do need to use a light meter. I can shoot in nearly any lighting condition even though the shutter speed setting only goes to 1/300th, I can go down to f/32 on the aperture.

It’s such a fun camera to use, I look forward to adding a few examples as soon as I process the film.

I had the opportunity to go along with Dr. John Whitmore and six Cedarville University geology students on a spring break petrology class trip out west to Anza Borrego Desert & Death Valley National Park.

On our flight out west, Dr. Whitmore prepares for our week out west.

A new photo project for 2019! “12 Cameras 12 Months”, each month I’ll feature / shoot a different analog camera. Back in 2016 I did a similar project with a different selection of cameras.

December – Monochrome A Day

December was a fun month for shooting an image a day, let alone a monochrome image a day.  I am completely fascinated with shooting in monochrome, seeing all the tones from white to black. That is why I continue this project with such enthusiasm.

Please like and comment, I’m interested in hearing what people think.
