From the shoot yesterday, Mamiyaflex C2 (second one, with 105mm lens)
TMAX 400/Thornton's 2-Bath, 5 mins each, 20C:



The first roll through this was the color roll with nothing on it due to having
the lens unlocked.

Love the fingernail shot.
I am scanning HP5 120 negs as I write this. Maybe they didn't get too dirty. what a digit-moron I am ... Laughing

I reckon I need to get a really, really good spotmeter ...

Jussi, I wanna know what dev you used for the Restaurant window, Jersey
City. This looks like C-41 BW, tho.

Paul, you're getting some great results with the Yashica and D-76. I pretty
much got my ass kicked yesterday with the dang window shots:



my next order to Freestyle will be getting the TMAX developer

Using the Olympus 35SP and pushing in the spot metering button on the
back while taking the picture yielded serviceable results, using KG100
that I got from Moira:

Thanks, Bill.
It looks like that sideways winter light is maybe 3-4 stops brighter than your model's face. Bummer ...

hi Bill, you have a lovely model!

I like the pose and composition of the first image. It is pretty much impossible to make a good shot in that situation without the aid of a fill light (continuous or flash), or of a reflecting panel (which would have to be huge to bounce-light a full figure). Spot metering on the face (or very close up metering with normal meter) is about the only thing that really works in that situation. Or even better, meter a gray card in the same position of her face, then overexpose by 1 stop, this will give a perfect Zone 6 reading for the face.

I also like the photo #3 especially the lovely colours, what film is that?

Photo #2 shoes a heavy posterization, maybe due to grayscale conversion process?

Paul, yes, rilly bad metering on my part.

Orio, the anomaly you see in the second one is my lame attempt to bring
her out of the shadows in PS, not good at all. The color film is Kodak Gold
100, sent all the way from 'stralia thanks to Moira! It's a great film, one of
my fave 35mm films if there's enough light.

Strange, I usually hate the Kodak Gold film, but this time I find it great.
Can't you find Kodak Gold film in your city? That sounds strange, Kodak being an American company.

Orio, it's available locally but expensive compared to Freestyle's prices. I
got this film sent to me by Moira on a trade deal. Here are a few more
using this film:

Good eye Bill, this was from before I started developing again... in more than one sense of that word Shocked Laughing It is either Fuji 160C expired or fresh Kodak 160NC, converted to b&w obviously.

+1 and then some on what Orio has to say about your model photos Smile

Is there a 35mm eye-level square-shooting camera extant? Robot maybe? I think that would be the best way for me to learn square composition ...

Jussi- those are very nice, especially like Verona Park. I used my Mamiya C33 with T-max 400 in D76 1+1. First shot with 65mm, second with 180mm.

Paul you just gotta get that Yashica out and shoot!! Laughing Burn some film, you'll pick it up quick.

First two are test pix of the second Mamiyaflex (with 105mm lens) after shooting a blank roll with dark slide over lens and last is from the shoot I made a week ago Saturday, same Mamiyaflex:





First two are Fuji Superia 100 expired, and last is Fomapan 400 film. And
since Jussi broke the TLR barrier, this is my fave of a scene I've shot with
different cameras, but this has the best lighting:

The covered bridge reminds me of a Cary Grant film - was it Mr Blandings?

I've seen that Oak tree in all seasons now! Smile And that reminds me of of the Phil Harris song "Woodman Spare That Tree". Is that the one your wife can't climb Bill? Smile
