This is one of my favourite threads though I have little to contribute except gosh-wow type responses to the photos you guys produce. I thought I'd send out the invite to all the fast developers here. If you have shots processed from May 15-29, then please share them to the Picture Of The Week thread.

Lovely shot Martin, that reminds me of the serenity I was feeling while resting on the shore of Finnish lakes, during a 5-day hike I did there. I think the subdued colours help in producing that effect. That framing with the branch, almost protecting the viewer the way a roof would, doesn't harm either

Thanks for sharing!

I am doing my development in our laundry room. One of the issue is that the f@#!$%^&* dryer is also in the laundry room. SO in an effort to keep the dust at bay and still have negative dry in a reasonable amount of time I came up with the following. Still experimental of course.
Looks good Luc.
So what is all that? :P The clear plastic(?) to keep the film isolated from dust, a dehumidifying heater to help it dry faster, and something else at the top?
Is it all your own creation?

Hey captain, I love that shot!
Apparently a Tintin movie is going to be made, with Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson directing/producing.

How can I groan loud enough to be heard in Hollywood?

Hey Jussi, by now you should be reasonable taken by the Autocord. Such a neat little camera to have around. If you get a chance, you can get the Rolleinar set of lenses to allow for close(r) focus, it gives more versatility to the camera.

Cheers,

Luc

Just trying out my newly acquired Hasselblad 60/3.5. AFter I decided to keep the Hasselblad over the 645 as my lighter small format system, I have retooled a little bit my line-up. The first new kid on the block is the 60/.35,
I took it for a little spin in our neighborhood park.
One thing that is for sure, composing/focusing with WLF for a direct vertical shot downward is not the easiest....

Luc, I have a Yashica +1 set, and a 6 piece Spiratone set, and an India branded one too. The Yashica close up is the best of the bunch.

Nice. It's square! You can rotate the camera on the tripod 90 like you would with a camera for portrait orientation and look from the side really easy.

No I am talking up/down hand held not portrait/landscape I found that the reflection make it difficult to see and of course after a while you are bound to move.

I'm saying you don't have to look through the WLF from the top. Rotate the camera on the tripod and the WLF is now horizontal where you can easily view for situations where you raise the camera up to eye-level or when it's pointed down.

I think the manual for my baby Yashica-44 has an example using that technique.

(At least, I think that is where I saw it...just remember an attractive Asian woman doing weird things with the camera...)

Yes I have the Ninja lady doing the same in the Autocord manual. The problem is that with some side light and the WLF horizontal there is too much reflection and I cannot see the ground glass. Even less so with my glasses.

The top is just a heavy plastic with holes to keep the vinyl together. The same is at the bottom but with foam to spong the water falling from the neg.

I could not find the original vinyl enclosure that came with the dryer when new so I happen to find this huge one. I considered cutting the top to fit the square of the dryer but then decided to simply enclose the dryer.

Cheers,

Luc
