Over the course of last year, I ran through another fifty-two roll project. While I didn’t post the images here to this blog, I did post them over on 52rolls.net. This year I made a point to stick to certain rules and methods that I have used in past projects of this type and settled on the following.

Product Highlights Type: Panchromatic B&W Negative Film Base: Triacetate Film Speed: ASA-400, with a Latitude between ASA-100 and ASA-3200 Formats Available: 35mm/120 Hasselblad 500c – Carl Zeiss Distagon 50mm 1:4Read More →
