Chased by shadows

A woman walks along the surfline on the beach on the edge between morning and night at harvey Cedars on LBI.

The sun rises over the ocean to the east, while Long Beach Island still lingers in the last of the predawn shadows.

More images taken with the Voigtlander Perkeo II on Fujifilm Pro 400H. The creaminess of the color is courtesy of the Color Skopar 80mm f3.5 on the camera.

Voigtlander Perkeo II

This photo was shot on a Voigtlander Perkeo II medium format camera from the 1950s. Despite taking 6×6 images on 120 film, the camera fits in a coat pocket when folded up. The 80mm f3.5 lens is a basic four-element design, and the image quality declines rapidly in anything less than well lit. But I like this image with its rich, deep colors from the Fuji Pro 400H color print film that almost looks like an oil painting.

Two more winter images with the Kowa Six, this time with Kodak’s Porta 400 print film.  We didn’t really get our snow until later in the season. Just cold and bare ground. Nothing particularly interesting about either photo to me except, again, the advantages of medium-format photography when it comes to the quality of the image.

Winter light

Burlington ferry docks lit by setting winter sun.

The Kowa Six’s 6×6 format shows off the depth of color that Fujifilm’s Velvia 100 brings to the image. This was shot with Kowa’s older camera — designed similar to the Hasselblad, but with a fixed film chamber built into the body. At 4 pounds-plus, not well suited for handheld photography on the bikepath. I love the big viewfinder, which seems brighter than my YashicaMat or Zeiss Ikoflex TLRs.
