I shot a roll yesterday, using window light and flash, several apertures using flash behind a white umbrella, with these objects. Then I finished the roll using a guitar, drum, and an mp3 player.
The roll that I processed the day before seemed to look underdeveloped somewhat, but I did not consider that my Caffenol-C was just giving up.

This roll was severely underdeveloped, and this was the only frame on the roll that was even close to being useable.
New batch of Caffenol coming up! And a reshoot of that setup. sigh.

The more I see of this one the more I like it. A great use of a really wide lens with people.
Thanks Tuco, I have to admit I am partial to it. I am unsure what to think of the 20. I do not think I narrowed in perfectly on its strengths. It is a 49 mm filter thread but yet is so wide that it makes it difficult to put a hood on and polarizers do not work well because the sky only ever goes half dark. Sometimes though it all comes together. I do like this type of wide angle shot with people though, especially when the background gives a good sense to the viewer what the subject is engaged in.
Here is one of me and my wife while we were driving through New Brunswick (not that you could tell) with the 20mm I like how this one came out (a different style of photo from the other one)

Trying the Pentax 165/2.8 out at f2.8
I've had this lens for a long time now and never shoot it because I often reach for my Pentax 165/4 leaf shutter version instead. It's time to use this one more and get a better feel for it.

The crisp focus, short DOF and the expression makes this a very well shot image!

The walls of Warwick's castle:



A peacock, unfortunately I had BW400CN so it's black and white:



Somewhere around the castle:



I think I used the K1000 and the 55mm f.20.

FYI, I'd convert your BW400CN files to gray scale if you want BW because apparently they are a RGB color file with a various hues in them such as pink and it shows up on my monitor for instance. This set is not as bad as some others have been though.

Some shots I took when the girls went out picking up walnuts in the yard.
These are taken with a Traveler 120 simple box camera, meniscus lens and 1/50 shutter Someone said it is an 1:32 aperture and it looked to be a 5.6 on sunny 16 scale light available, I had 100 ISO film in it and I got underexposed shots, but did some work in post.

The girls posing with their haul.



This camera is not really appropriate for crisp action shots.



My sister, Wendy with a walnut



Mom and erin, discussing the harvest. (umm, maybe)



This is the camera.




To be fair, I know this camera can take better pictures, but it was loaded with a roll that I had used for frame space tests in this camera and had been rolled through about 5 times. Fogging was evident on many frames and several frames it was quite bad.

Some from yesterday

Did a photowalk in Dyrehaven with some friends yesterday. A sunny morning turned into a grey day with poor light. Still, I did get some reasonable shots. I used my still very functional Pentax MZ-3 and some old Takumar lenses.

An old oak shielding the rising sun - Super-Takumar 20mm F4.5:


An old tree struggling to survive another year - Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 35mm F2.0:


This place has a lot of old, picturesque oaks - Super-Takumar 20mm F4.5:


"Eremitagesletten" named after the Heremitage Palace in the background - Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 35mm F2.0:


Film: Rollei RPX 400 developed in ID-11 1+3

Here is a 400TMY @EI100 and I did an approximate 100% crop where you can see the grain


What is that guy in the background doing with the woman's bosom?
