Really nice work! Did you have to do some development/pp magic to get those shadows so deep, or was this mostly the way the light worked out?

Yep love those old manual flashes, they are fun to use!

I see the Focal is a "potato masher" style, they look good attached to an old film camera, Gives you kind of a news press photographer look, people will stare when you use it.

That is a killer photo. Is that yours or one found? I love the old-schooler Rollei shooter amongst all the new-fangled SLR photogs.

Ditto it's a great shot that I found online. Lots of potato masher flashes on display.

Love those, especially 018 with the mixture of curves and straight lines. Great stuff.
Thanks. I think I want to try and put the intersection of the straight lines in the center of the circles the next time I attempt the shot and see how it changes the photograph.

Great shots nickthetasmaniac, gofour3 and Jamey777.

Derbyshire (Nettar 4) par Kris Lockyear, on ipernity

Zeiss Ikon Nettar.

I forgot what film was in the camera and guessed it was Tri-X. I was wrong. It was a ISO 50 film! I got the lab to push it by two stops and it seems to have worked out OK.

Pan F? Definitely turned out OK for exposing it completely incorrectly.

It was Adox CHS 50 Art. The one and only roll of it I have ever shot. I loaded it when it was bright and sunny and thought I'd try a slow medium format film, then never used it. Normally I use Tri-X for medium format BW.

That is beautiful shot. I second what g026r said. It definitely came out OK.

Speaking of Adox:* first roll back from a block of very lightly** expired Efke KB100 that I picked up on the cheap. Not certain I'm in love with it, but it'll do.

* For those confused by the segue: most Efke films were based off older Adox formulas.
** Less than a year. Not even adjusting the ISO yet, unlike the ORWO that I've currently got going.



Canon FTb.
Canon FD 50mm f1.8 S.C.
Efke KB100.

And a Tri-X shot from the K2 shortly before it stopped firing on anything other than the mechanical speed:



Pentax K2.
smc Pentax-A 50mm f2.
Kodak Tri-X 400.

Now back to sorting through these scans... I really need to stop dropping all my rolls off at once.

Tell me about it. I've got two lots from July/August: a 16-roll (Eastern Ontario), and a 14-roll (GTA), which I just started going through a week ago.

Yep, the summer of '16 is gonna be around for a looong time.

I am impressed that with all those rolls you remember the lens and the camera. Because I do not use many different cameras that part is easier to keep straight, but the lenses, even if I do not use many I can not remember which ones I used. It is especially tough between my 40 f2 CV, DA XS 40 2.8, and the different 50s I have due to the similar field of view. If I am shooting the 28 or 100 it is a little bit easier to tell. Anyways those are some great shots.

To save on postage I save films up until I have a few to send. I often can not remember what camera they were in, and certainly not what lenses were used. There are odd exceptions, such as one recent roll where I deliberately shot the whole thing using my SMC Takumar 85mm lens. I ought to keep notes, and I have tried in the past, but usually only manage for about half a roll before good intentions fall by the wayside.

I keep a film journal that I record the camera/film/lenses/location/date for every roll I shoot. (As well as any filters/flashes/extension tubes I use)

If I don't finish the roll on that outing, I add a second entry on the same page for the next time I continue shooting that roll of film. This entry has those lenses that I used for the new date/location.

The only thing I don't record is which shot was taken with which lens, if I use more than one lens per location. (I don't take the journal with me when I shoot. If I travel I take notes on a piece of paper each evening and update the journal when I get back home)

After I get the film back from processing I record the date and location in my slide spreadsheet if I'm shooting mounted 35mm E6 (stored in slide boxes) or on the film archive sheets (stored in binders) for cross reference.

For me it's pretty easy to keep updated and a must as I shoot many different films/cameras/lenses. When I just had one camera with 28mm/50mm/135mm lenses and only shot Kodachrome, using a journal wasn't so much of an issue.

Phil.
