March in review. A monochrome a day, everyday. Follow me on Instagram @scotthuckphoto
April 2019 … another 30 days of taking a monochrome image everyday.
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.
Spring Break 2019 – 6 days, 1045 miles & 24 images.
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.
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. Many of these cameras I’ve acquired over the last 2 years or have not been featured in the past project. I picked a wide range of cameras, 35mm, medium format, and two Polaroids.

Question: What camera do you have in this collection and what do you like about it and what do you not like about it?
February brought NFL Super Bowl, friends, snow, college sports, buildings & an abandoned house along with many more images.
