Chocolate Demo

Hi all, this is a picture shot during a demonstration in Barcelona in 2011. It was shot with a Pentax LX and a 55mm 1.8 Takumar. I think the film was an Ilford 400 ISO. I wonder how it would have looked with a 31mm lens

phosphoro, I really like that picture. I am quite fond of these perspectives where we see the back of the person and get a sense of what they are looking at.

Paper negative, scanned and left as negative.
I think this looks much better as the negative.

First shots with my new Ikonta 520-A folder, shoots 120 roll film and 4.5x6 cm frames.





The shutter was wonky, but I didn't notice it until I had loaded the roll of B&W, after I ran this first roll, I did a CLA on the shutter, and it snaps and whirs real pretty now. I have color, Ektar 100 in it now.
I may grab some Portra 400 for this camera.

Congrats on the new gear, Mike.

Looking at dracluff's photo on his bike reminded me of a time when I clamped my 67 + 45mm + air bulb cable release to a bike on a jig just to see what I'd get. I intentionally configured it for a slow shutter.

^^^Nice! Is that an old rockhopper? Cool shepherd as well.

No wait...rockhoppers were Specialized. Nice old bike though...I bet it's orange?

That's awesome! Very creative, and a tad bit brave to strap a 67 onto a bike!

Ha, I think I'll avoid mounting this camera on a helmet.

I picked the bike up 2nd hand. I don't know what it was designed for but with the really narrow handle bar width I'd say wooded trails. It's grayish and more show-than-go. I have some pretty old bike gear I've been meaning to do a picture of. The original Bell Biker helmet and some old Campagnolo gear all from the mid 70's

Thanks. I was pretty confident with the jig I built to mount the camera.

Very nice! Interesting shot!

With my Graflex, handheld on paper neg. ISO 3 f:8 @1/8th sec.
The light spray at bottom right was the dark slide that did not catch the flip hinge. I fixed it before I shot, but some light leaked in before I noticed it. I expected a completely ruined picture.

Nice, Phil

It looks like a beauty dish and butterfly lighting in the first two.

I seemed to have missed alot in the past couple of days. Mike I like those paper negatives. Folders interest me quite a bit, but no money for them now. Tuco that shot with your 6x7 is fantastic. Really well done.
Those are some nice studio shots Phil.

Thanks guys.

Yeah it was a good weekend workshop and we went through umbrellas, softboxes, beauty dishes, grids, reflectors, mono-blocks, power packs/heads, using all the main light patterns. My biggest problem was getting the right sync cable to fit the power packs and the 67, as I could not use the Pocket Wizards. Unfortunately it was a bit too hectic to note what was used in each shot, other than the lens.

Phil.
