|A roll of Kodak 100TMX, developed in T-max, scanned with the Epson 4490. 1937 Certo Super Sport Dolly with a Xenar 7.5cm f/2.8 lens.
I shot this for the light bloom from the windows - the sun was setting and shining through. 1/50sec f/5.6. I had a difficult time deciding just how dark to make the photo.
Facing the other way in the old hall of the Hoboken Erie Lackawanna station waiting room. 1/50sec f/3.5. The lens gets soft at this aperture, but the frame size is huge, extending into the film id text... so a true 6x6 frame would be just the center bits.
For these, I attempted street shooting - Somehow I have the image of doing this with a vintage Contax RF Since the range finder's still unadjusted, I guess focused too close. For this type of shooting I'm thinking all I really need is to pre-focus accurately at a distance, and then trip the shutter when something interesting happens at that distance.
People don't really seem to mind antique cameras, being conditioned to seeing SLRs and digicams these days.
