Frugal Film Project – Kevin Dillon – June

For June, I subbed out my Minolta SRT-SCII for a Kalimar KX7000 (Minolta x370 clone) due to a wonky meter.  



As far as subject matter goes, I’m struggling a bit this summer due to a lot of rainy weather on my days off, as well as a clutch on my car that has 180,000 miles on it and I don’t trust it enough to drive to the places I’d like to shoot. So needless to say, I’ve been sticking fairly close to home. 


For June, I went to the Trumbull County Fair and ended up shooting probably a half roll of my 36 exposures. I had every intention of shooting something else to fill the roll, but bad weather the rest of the month put the kibosh on that idea. 😕  



As usual, I shot with my 28mm Vivitar close focus f2.8 (Komine), Minolta MD 50mm f2 and my Soligor 135mm f3.5 lens.



My film was Ultrafine Xtreme 400 shot @ 400 and souped in Rodinal 1:50. Temperature controlled via sous-vide (and some ice packs to keep it at 68 degrees on a very warm day.) 



My scans were done on an Epson Perfection 370 Photo scanner. 



Hopefully I’ll have better luck next month!

    Dustin, the trapeze artist photo is pure, vintage beauty. They’re all good, but that one stands out to my taste. Beautiful job!

    1. Hey Michael… I agree the photos are fantastic! Kevin did amazing! 😎

  3. Awesome Ferris wheel shots! I’ve got to try this when our Washington State Fair starts up in a couple of weeks. Excellent work!
