sandyphimester ... Today I take my first "next step" with photography, light and vision. I'm borrowing this 4x5 with the Aero Ektar lens, which is essentially like a 50mm f/0.75 lens, dreamy and gorgeous... a World War II lens that was originally used to photograph enemy territory from the sky. Anyway, my similar camera/lens is being made now and will be here in a month or so, but until then I'm going to start shooting large format at almost all my shoots. I'm excited to give this a go. And I'm ready to be humbled by the process... Many mistakes to be made, I'm sure - but what is growth without some stumbles on the way. #film #aeroektar #shootfilm #4x5 #largeformat #speedgraphic 2d

sandyphimester ... we often make portraits a reflection of our own ... expired Portra 400NC. #pentax67 #film #kodak #kodakfilm #400nc #portra 4d
  •   sandyphimester @iamtomlew I have successfully shot handheld with no MLU at 1/30 and 1/60. It just takes practice. At 1/60 I try to be careful but don't worry too much. 3d
  •   fjalltastic I appreciate fillm and it's imperfections. But this is perfect. Too bad they merged VC and NC. 3d
  •   sandyphimester @fjalltastic thank you, I feel the same way about the film, I much prefer the older Portras 3d
  •   alexsucks13 Hey man, i just wanted to say that I really love when photographers take the "modern" style and make it their own and channel it through their vision. Congrats man. You have some real talent. Keep chasing the dream. 2d
  •   workhallstudio Beautiful work! 21h
  •   sandyphimester @alexsucks13 @workhallstudio thank you, that's a really nice thing to say :) 14h
  •   alexsucks13 @sandyphimester no problem man, if you ever find yourself in the Dallas or New York area, and want to do some cinematographer work, just shoot me a message 14h
  •   sandyphimester @alexsucks13 that would be awesome 14h

  •   jhamperphotog Beautiful tones, love the light. 5d
  •   theiceboxmonster Very cool! 5d
  •   pvlknn In the words of Larry David, this is pretty, pretty, pretty... pretty good! :) 5d
  •   proscanny sweet! 5d
  •   fjalltastic How do you meter your shots with the M3? Especially facing the window like this one. Love your B&W shots. 5d
  •   sandyphimester @proscanny @fjalltastic thank you! I use a hand held meter and take one or two readings of a scene. I knew I wanted the exposure to favor the window more - for a moody effect, rather than exposing her face 100%, so I took a reading and then another and decided from there. Usually in this sort of case I just meter her face. Then the side f her face or head and see the difference and decide how I want it 5d
  •   rach.facee Very talented 4d

sandyphimester Polaroid is magic, stop moments in time, remember them - as they really were. He's old, but happy and still likes to walk around and play, he does little things all the time that make you smile. Like eating his dinner while standing funny on his bed. #polaroid #snapitseeit #cute #dog #film #fuji #shootfilm #3000b #fp3000b 1w

  •   j.guevara Gotta love that light and the unmistakable Tri-X grain 1w
  •   wileyput Nice tones - like the light 1w
  •   fjalltastic Really smooth tones on her skin. Do you use an external lighmeter with your M3? Like the radiator in the back too, makes a nice contrast. 1w
  •   nick_lanphier Great lighting gotta love Tri-x and Leica. They make a great team. Nice shot. 1w
  •   robtranphoto_o Like it! 4d

sandyphimester The new @cinestillfilm 50D cinema film, daylight balanced - with @chauinc - long way from Japan to Canada just for some frozen baguettes. Love the film, it's exciting stuff, can't wait to shoot more. Check it out if you can. Still need to look through more. #cinestill #film #50d #shootfilm #leica #summicron 2w

sandyphimester ... A great expanse. That feeling that you've never felt smaller, and in a beautiful and human way. Go find yourself - getting lost. #myjasper #jasper #leica #kodak #kodakfilm #film #mountains 3w

sandyphimester Back from repairs. 1950s dream. It's been a bit of a sorted few months with it, with a new shutter piece needed and another issue, but it's so solid now, smooth as can be. My favorite camera. For 50mm lenses there is no better camera. #leica #leitz #shootfilm #film ... Youxin replaced a part originally the first time I sent it but turns out the piece was slightly faulty (not his fault) so I sent it back and be fixed it, replaced another part AND cleaned it.... And shipped it back for free. Nicest guy ever, and does amazing work. This thing feels so good now. He's the best. 1mon

  •   nickyscicluna Wow how does the Fp100 give you such good results indoor ? 2w
  •   sandyphimester @nickyscicluna polaroid 180 has larger aperture and manual settings, I don't use a tripod but I metered carefully and had to shoot at 1/15 speed. I just practice holding camera still. 2w
