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.

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.
