I got a beautiful Microcord Camera for my birthday this year. I love it so much. I have had a bit of an adjustment getting used to using a waist level camera. A Microcord, like the Roliflex is a twin lens waist level medium format camera. I have mostly been shooting Ilford XP2 super 400 film. This film is new to me, but I really love how the softness and the grain work on the double exposures I have made so far for this project. These images are part of a personal project named,
HumanNature is a project that I have been working on for quite some time. Both conceptually and in actuality. I hope to get a body of work together on this theme and do a portfolio review, and then take it from there. I plan to shoot this project 100% on film. I had not planned that at first, but have been rethinking it, and want to do it all on film. That is why I was so sad about the images that I took at the Harvard Arnold Arboretum on the roll that was all out of focus. (see 12 Portraits~May blog post below this one..) For film work I mostly use either my grandfather Julius’s Nikon F2, the Microcord or my Nikonos underwater Nikon camera. I think I will also load up and bring my N90 as backup. We used our N90’s
all through shoots in the 1990’s and I know it to be a very reliable and dependable camera.
This is my very first Blog post both for the Film Mama blog circle and on the HumanNature theme. This is just some of the images I have for this project, they are the very first few double exposures I have made with the Microcord. The project will not be all double exposures.
All images shot in camera.
