The nonexistent rumors of my death being greatly exaggerated, I've returned to this dark corner of the internet to post my film failures. Turns out the Crown Graphic didn't have a light leak. The bright blotches popping up in my photos was a result of loading film holders and then not immediately packing them away in the darkness of a photo bag. So yeah... I learned my lesson, and they'll all look lovely from here on out. If I don't underexpose them. I shot off the rest of my Velvia and the results were disastrous. I've decided to finally bite the bullet and buy a spot meter, because Jesus Christ. Look at this garbage.
Whoops! My 40 year old light meter finally met its maker, so these were completely destroyed. 3 bucks a shot, down the drain.
These turned out a little bit better:
It's all relative though. I sort of hate them all. I'll get better. I promise!
Oh, and I bought this thing:
Mamiya RB67 6x7 medium format camera. I took this bad boy to Pittsburgh for a Premier League friendly and took some pictures. They aren't fine art, but they at least proved the camera works.
