I really like this.[COLOR="Silver"]

I thought I metered off them better but I guess the bright background still tricked the meter (and me). That back lighting is still tricky for me.
Thanks.

Yours is still a nice portrait. And it looks like you did place your middle grey a stop or so below what a camera meter typically gives you.

My first paper negative shot, with my voightlander AVUS:



The negative was quite thin, I added a stop of exposure, but got similar results.
Then I added a stop and doubled develop time, better tone, but way too grainy.

I may try a flash exposure, or I might wait for sunlight. My meter at ISO 6, told me to use 1/2 sec @ f:5.6 I might have to go to ISO 1.5 :-)

Yeah, bracket until you find a good working ISO.

ME Super + M40mm f2.8 + HP5+ @ 400 ISO developed in D-76 - If I remember right I used a Hoya ND8

This lovely lady was grandmother to my brother-in-law. Now deceased - I think this is one of the last photos his family has of her.

Brilliant image all round. Great use of curves and lines and the Tuco trademark of spot-on exposure, a real winner. K.

Istigated by some members on this board I tried to take pics of the mist...unfortunately this is all the fog I can offer to this board:





Both pics were taken with an LX, a 50 mm 1.7 and a Penta YG filter...still perhaps it's the bad weather but the 1.7 doesn't seem to me to be a great lens.

They both look good to me.


I continue to try to get an eye for black and white, trying to imagine the B&W image in the viewfinder. It's hit or miss so far (mostly miss). Here are a few just received from the lab. I used the K2 with T-Max 100.


I used the K 24/2.8 here. It's a bit on the soft side, but I'm ok with that.



And the M50/1.4 for this one.

Not crazy about the definition of the pictures and the sharpness of the lens, but perhaps it's just the weather, other two shots taken with the LX in auto mode here:



Sunset at f/22, I don't understand the white dots, perhaps the scanner was dirty.



Tree in front of a Gothic church, shot AE priority at f4.0....both of the pictures taken with a Pentax YG filter.

To be sure I bought an M50mm f1.4 like yours and I'm eager to test it.

Okay, I'll expose (Heh.) my ignorance. If I want to post a photo, how do I do it? I've looked for instructions, but haven't found any. When I select the add photo button on the reply menu, it asks for a URL. All my photos are just saved on my hard drive. I'm a dinosaur and I'm stumped. Help?

Thanks.

Try using the Manage Attachments button just below the comment box where it says, "Attach Photos or Files". I believe it will allow you to browse your local hard drive for an attachment.

Not used my film Pentaxes for a while-- but I took out my 1961-62 Rolleiflex 2.8F Planar loaded with a roll of 07/1991 dated Agfa Pan 100 ( NOT the 'APX' type) and downrated it to 64 ASA--- I tested the Rollei meter with the Incident Light attachment and even after all those years it was still accurate -- very good for a selenium cell meter !! I processed in Rodinal 1-50 for 14 mins at 20oC with only a couple of inversions of the Paterson Tanks once per minute and got some very good negatives that look almost like a 'Pyro Stain' developer -- I have done some traditional Darkroom prints to 16X12" and they are sharp with no grain. -these photos were all taken in Chelmsford, Essex, England 12 miles from my town of Brentwood. Aperture was f4 or f4.5 at 1/250th hand held.

Thanks Tuco. My first:

This was checking out a new to me M-series 200mm. Shot on Tri-X in a KX.

Edit: oops. This was from a K1000, not a KX.
Lab process & scan, no PP.

Lovely! Although I don't use it that much, I really like that M200, it's a great piece of glass.
