I was wondering if maybe you liked the M50/1.4 so much you were packing around tw0 of them
Please, don't get my LBA started!
No, I only have one which is my only 50mm. I have been tempted to get an A 50 f/1.4 too but so far have resisted the urge

Luc, thanks - it was nice, this was at a local craft brewery/pub. That reminds me, there is a shop here that stocks international beer and I think I remember hearing of some great Canadien craft beer. Might have to try some...

Pepijn, welcome back - I do enjoy your shots too!

Some shots from a trip to Saint Malo, France last weekend. Mixture of ME Super and Canon EOS 3 used. Yellow filter on some shots, fairly obvious which ones from the darker sky. All on Tri-X 400 developed in D76.

Junk car and trash bin shots are excellent street shots.
I like Ultramax 400 ...
Thank you kindly

Nice shots Vendee. When I have used Tri-X in similar situations it has come out a lot more grainy than your shots. Nice work

Luc, I love the second shot. When I was a kid I lived in Port Alberni for a summer and we made a few trips out Tofino. The second shot brings back memories of the drive out there.

Yes Tofino is such a nice place.
Regretfully the days we were there the sky was overcast when it begs for nice stormy clouds.

Cheers,

Luc

Yes there are quite a few nice micro breweries both in BC and in Quebec.
Give it a try.

Cheers,

Luc

Thanks but I'm not really trying for less grain. Grain is good

I've done a 100% crop comparison between Tmax 400 and Tri-X 400. I think the Tri-x has a touch more grain but not a lot more.



If you're interested, I developed the Tri-X in D76 @ 20 degrees C for 9.5 minutes. 30 seconds initial agitation then 10 seconds every minute. The agitation is fairly gentle i.e. 4 complete invertions = 10 seconds.

On the same trip I tried some Tri-X 400 @ 1600 for night time shots in bars and restuarants but that was asking too much really. I used my ME Super with M50 1.7 lens but to get any light in, the lens was always at f/1.7 which gives such a shallow DoF and is fairly unforgiving when manually focusing. I really need to get a diopter for the ME Super because my eysight isn't perfect. On an autofocus camera that's not a problem but it is on a manual focus with the lens at f/1.7

I'm going to try using Tri-X and TMY2 @1600 for daytime/low light stuff, just to get some grain into the shots.

Thanks. I like the skin tones in that shot.... much nicer than the skin tones on the girl in the 4th shot.

Thanks for the info Vendee, I certainly am interested in your development procedure as I hope to be starting to do my own very soon. The 100% crop is interesting too. Nothing wrong with going for more grain - I love film grain too depending on the subject of the photo. What I should have said is that in my results the grain was much larger and rough looking, which in the most part didn't look so good in my photos. I have no idea on what dev was done as I paid someone else to do it! I might have to chuck a polariser or something on and do some 400+ iso shooting during the day soon.

Pity about your 1600 shots. I have shot Tri-X at 1600 once and loved the results and believe it was actually cleaner than what my digital K200D can do. Unfortunately I have no idea what dev was done then either...

Hi folks. Here is a picture of my daughter Elizabeth doing what she spends her free time doing. Shooting pictures and drawing. I gave her my K1000 and an assortment of lenses about a year ago that included a 24, 28, 35, 50 and 135mm lenses. I also gave her a FUJI F100FS Bridge cam at the same time.. Recently I gave her my K-7 with the kit lens + she has access to all my Pentax lenses. Anyway, the reason I bring this up is because 80% of the time she is shooting the K1000. It is with her always. She keeps it in here bag.


Here are a few of her pics. I had the film developed by samys. It is ilford XP-2
Some of her high school friends.


Her best buddy


Not sure about these dudes...Actually they are nice kids.


I thought this was a self portrait, but then noticed she was focusing on her other best friend Jennifer

Pretty clear that talent runs in the family . I've enjoyed your son's shots in the past and it seems his sister is equally talented. Thanks for sharing and glad she enjoys the K1000. I have a good time with mine when I shoot it, but my first love is my ME Super.

Best,
Kevin
