Fabulous Film Fridays – Jan 14, 2011

This week it’s Sam’s turn to show off an image she made using film. Her post is her very first image made with Tachihara Tim (her 4×5 view camera). Sam had quite an adventure learning how to use the 4×5 view camera (read about it here) and I helped her by donating a sweat-stained shirt to use as a dark cloth. What a nice guy eh? Anyway for posterity, here is Sam hard at work getting some fresh air and making her first 4×5 view camera photo.

  1. Hey!

    I just started to shoot 4×5 as well and guess what – I also have this wonderful Tachihara field camera. So far I’ve done about a dozen shots and I was surprised how well everything went. I’m a big fan of film shooting now and love the handling of the analogue equipment.

    Best of luck with your adventures,
    Andreas

  3. I bought the same camera couple of years ago. Played with it for a bit, but never took a picture. I have some preloaded Velvia 50. Problem is film processing. Here in Frankfurt I found one lab, that asks around 13 bucks for one slide!

    Best of luck with it, it’s a very sexy camera!
