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.
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.

I am way past due on updating my Monochrome A Day photo project but I’ve not stopped shooting. There’s nothing like shooting in black & white … well actually shooting black & white film is the purest way but I still enjoy shooting on the monochrome setting in the camera.
I had such a great time photographing Tim & Cassie’s wedding day. It was such a fun day! Moffat Hall at Grace Baptist Church & Cedar Land Event Center were great venue’s. Tim & Cassie, thank you so much for having me document your beautiful wedding day.
