More 3D tests … and I promise to cut down on the flashing images

Last week, I packed two rolls of Fuji 400 film into my two Nikon EM cameras for another test of my c’est schisse 3D film photography experiment. And before I post these images … I am going to apologize to you, my beloved blog readers, for giving you headaches in past blogs regarding this experiment.…

The Dry Test at Saratoga Harness

Okay.  I’ve got my “new-to-me” Nikon EM cameras – which I’ve combined in a c’est schisse format to hopefully create stereo photos, and now it’s time to test out my photographic plans. Work with me on this. First, take a look at the frames from this vintage 1960’s-era View-Master photo set. Well now.  These are…

My Homemade Nikon c’est schisse Camera System

What, you’ve never heard of the Nikon c’est schisse camera system? Let me explain. I love three-dimensional photography, and over time I’ve purchased various single-use cameras to help me create this effect – the Trio3D and the Nimslo and the Kodak Realist, for example.  But these cameras are not as strong as I want.  They’re…

A test run at the Durham Fair

Two weeks ago, I test-ran some film through a new-to-me camera, and took some shots at the Big E in Massachusetts.  Last Sunday, I ran some film through ANOTHER new-to-me shooter, this time taking pictures at the Durham Fair in Connecticut. Am I going to enter any of these pictures in competition?  Not likely.  These…

It’s nice to get feedback (Big E 2019 edition)

Of the five “competition season” yearly photo salons, the Big E provides the most “judge’s feedback.”  Sure, I could track down a judge at one of the other events and ask him or her what he/she thought of my photos, or maybe a judge might check off a reference on a scotch-taped checklist.

For this competition, I entered my macro dandelion photo After the Rain, along with two new entries – my photo of a distressed Grateful Dead-painted Volkswagen Beetle, Brokedown on Maggie’s Farm, and…

A new competition in 2020, for three-dimensional images

I’ve dabbled in three-dimensional film photography for several years.  I’ve never really won any awards with these prints, but that hasn’t stopped me from continuing to do what I can. And I’m thinking that the only way to make this actually work to my advantage is to take my three-dimensional photo skills and aim them…

A quick trip to the Big E

It’s Sunday morning and the Big E – the Eastern States Exposition, the largest fair in New England – opened its doors. I needed to make a road trip.  Plus, I needed to test out a newly-acquired film camera. Road trip to Springfield. A few things to remember when going to the Big E.  First…

My entries for the 2019 Durham Fair are …

The Durham Fair is my fifth and final entry in Competition Season 2019.  And I’ve made a bit of an adjustment as to what I enter in this competition. Please let me explain. At one point in time, the Durham Fair and the New York State Fair’s photo contests shared the same submission dimensions –…
