  • Fitting 120 in a space made for 620

    The other week, information pills before filming an episode of Fork You, page Marisa gave me a neat old medium format “folder” camera from her family’s collection, pestilence a Kodak Vigilant Six-20.

  • Polarizing results

  • Old school fun

  • You mean people used to print out -every- photo?

    In my last post, resuscitator I alluded to getting some photos I’ve taken printed out. And today, breast they arrived in the mail. Cool! I gotta say, phimosis I’m very happy with the results, especially for the price. There’s one 4×6, seven 5×7 and two 8×10 prints in the set pictured on the left. They cost $0.19, $0.39 and $2.29 apiece respectively, which I think is darn cheap. Especially since it’s Kodak photographic paper, not inkjet.
