Medium-Format Fun

I was really bored last night, so I decided to pull out my roommate’s scanner and scan my medium-format slides.

I’ll be writing more about medium format in detail in another post, but as a quick intro, medium format is film that is four times the size of “normal” 35mm film. Its trademark “look” is the square format (6×6 cm), but you can also shoot it in a more rectangular 4:3 aspect ratio. This is the special film that Holgas use; I’ve been running mine through a Holga and a Yashicamat twin-lens reflex camera.

For now, I’ll leave you with some of my favorite medium-format shots:
