I spent some time this week experimenting with a combination of 35mm film shot inside a few medium format cameras. The Agfa Clack is a 6x9 film camera that is about as low tech as you can get, but still having the benefit of a glass lens. I ran a roll of black and white film through this camera, but the results were below my expectations, even for something I would consider an “experiment.” I also ran a roll of 35mm film through my Russian tank, a Kiev 6C. Have not gotten that roll developed yet, but should be interesting to see the result of a wide angle Jena lens and a 6cm wide frame throwing imagery onto 35mm film.
I’m glad to have a lab in the city that still processes film, a big thanks to Picture Perfect Photo Lab for helping to feed my need for film based photography in 2019. Besides the 35mm / medium format rolls, I also had them process a roll of film I shot in the bosque along the Rio Grande sometime in 2018, a strip of which you can see above. These images will be part of a big project that will be revealed later this year… tease…. tease. Man, I am happy my scanner still works.
