Shots From Photographica- April, 2012

As I blogged recently, last month, there truly were bargains to be had at Photographica. Ironically, despite being a mostly analog show, I was one of the few folks I saw there who was actively shooting film at the event. My Nikon F3HP received several ‘is that one for sale” inquiries, as well as “what film are you shooting with” questions. I was amongst friends, so the usual “you can still get film?” was not a question. The lighting was very dark inside, and as I did not shoot with a flash, I shot wide open at f/1.4. Outdoors, at about f/8.

Here are a few shots from the weekend (April 14-15, 2012)-

So nice to see a Hasselblad on the sign!

Fellow PHSNE member Al Holmy always has great gear for sale- and is very, very knowledgable.

Lots of film photographers were buying, and the prices were, after haggling a bit, very reasonable.

The next Photographica is September 22-23rd, in Wakefield, MA. See www.phsne.org for more details. This show, the prices seemed much more reasonable, in line with what is out there online, and the dealers were indeed haggling. Maybe a sign of the economy, but also great for us. This show is a must see for film photographers in the Northeast.
