I shoot a lot less B&W than color, so it took some poking around to dig this one up. P6x7, older 55/4, XP2; something apparently emerging from the depths of Lake Kachess in the Washington Cascades...
Yeah, looks like a crawling creature. Kind of spooky!

That's a beautiful portrait. I love the delicate tonality.

Thanks.

The portrait looks great could sign of things to come except that i do not know anything about flash and nobody around would really model for me

I really like TriX and Diafine. Not fancy but does the job and well.

Cheers,

Luc

I think it's just fine. Good use of DIY light gear.

Hey, there are plenty of other people posting 6x7 BW besides me. And half of my posts are 6x6. So let's not forget their most excellent contributions.
Indeed, I can't forget all the great B&W in here!
The point of my post was merely to poke fun

Went out to put a test roll through my new Rolleiflex. I didn't have a meter with me, so I had to use sunny 16. I'm not happy that I forgot to center the hand rail on this shot, but I was glad that the Rollei could at least put an image to film. I really like the camera and the lens is very sharp; exceeds my scanner by quite a bit. I've regretted selling my Bronica RF645 for too long, so it's nice to have a medium format camera that doesn't have to be constantly attached to a tripod again.

Rolleiflex 2.8D, TMY-2, Divided Pyrocat MC

What would a new camera purchase be without a selfie to kill some film? My first shot from the camera.
Wow, the under the bridge shot looks great! Pretty impressive test shots! Nice work with the Rollei.

Looks like a winner of a lens Jason.


@Luc, congrats on your 67 purchase.


Speaking of 6x7 B&W, I shot a roll of Tri-X with my 67 last weekend while playing around with off camera lighting using the leaf shutter on my 90/2.8 LS and an old Minolta Auto 280 flash.

Here's my favourite,
cropped from the original.


Developed in Diafine.


I posted this plus another in the Critique section, so if you have anything bad to say about it go there
Thanks Colton.
And yes that is a lovely portrait of a cute little girl. You should be well please on both counts

Cool! The framing of the 'creature' works nicely.

cheers,
Jason

fs999, there's a sort of medium-format-ness about those shots, nice tonality and a sense of being right there.

Trying out Kodak's new Portra 400 film. Took this last night just after 10:00PM. It was a full moon and amazingly the skies were clear! I took one at 30 seconds, 1, 2 and 4 minutes since I wasn't sure about the reciprocity. The 30 sec, 1 and 2 minute shots all looked about the same. The 4 min was over done.

My spot meter read about EV2 on the Space Needle and that is not too reliable since it didn't fully cover the one-degree circle. But I went with that anyway and put that 3 stops above middle gray which came out to be a 1 minute exposure, f11, at EI400.

Tuco, lovely shot of a lovely cliché landmark, must be from Queen Anne hill. How did that flag at left manage to stay relatively still for 60 sec?? And the restaurant wasn't rotating?

Thanks. The flag is blurry on the ends. It doesn't show up much on that small of size. And I was surprised too. The entire Space Needle saucer does not rotate. Only a 14-foot ring next to the windows rotates on the SkyCity restaurant level. So only the things on the inside of the windows would show motion blur and it takes something like 30 minutes for one complete revolution.

Lovely shot Tuco.
I have never seen it before, so it's not a cliche for me Seattle looks like a nice place.

Brilliant work Tuco. And starching that flag ahead of time was a good plan!

Thanks you guys. Okay! Here is a crop of the flag. You can see it moving some and it looks supported across the top. It was a pretty calm night.
