Koni-Omega Contact Sheet

Whoo it worked, some years ago I ran into a problem with my Koni-Omega 6×7 medium format camera. It was a nasty light leak that looked horrible. I think I figured it out, which will be its own post coming up. For now I’m just happy the contact sheet looks good. I shot this on […]

First print off my new (to me) enlarger!

Here it is, my first print off my Omega D5, which I picked up at Photostock 2015. It’s of my grandfather in law. Printing with this is very different than my Beseler 23c. This uses a Dichro head instead of a condenser. Dichro heads use a diffuse light source, as apposed to columnated, which reduces […]
