lovely. as always.

just because you cleaning up your dry box.. i just want to say ..
dont give up film Colton. .
Thanks Hermawan.
As long as I can physically take a photo, I will continue to shoot film. I have been looking through my photos from the last 4+ years (I started shooting in 2008) looking for photos to print for my portfolio, and while my entire collection is probably 50-50 film and digital, probably 70% of my favorites are on film.


That is a great portrait of the girl you posted. Her eyes are amazing and you captured the perfectly.

Wings Over North Georgia Airshow from a different perspective . . . fisheye with my LX + Takumar 17mm f4 via a PK M42 to Kmount with Kodak 400VC
Saw the signs for this year's event coming up this weekend and it reminded me of the shots I took previously. Since then I've learned to keep my fingers out of the frame of this fisheye!

Killer shots! Is the show at an airfield in the Athens area? Some years ago I and my then Lady drove up in time to see a low level flyover by a B2 with wings extended for slow speed flight. Awesome! Wonderful shots, the Northern Lights, et al. Low level inverted flights with a maniac doing wing walks. Wowzer! Some folks must have death wishes. Pitts Specials, the whole works. No GeeBees, though, alas! My Lady's father, a fighter pilot in WWII, had been a crop duster in Iowa, and her brothers had continued in that "noble, fearless" tradition, so she could fill me in on what was happening. Pretty scary! The box for jets is too big to appreciate aerobatics, but prop planes are something else.

Fuji 160S, Pentax ZX-L, smc-a 28/2.8. The ZX-L is a hoot with the smc-a 28 - I use the trap focus all the time and it's better than auto focus!

The guy who owns the camera shop that develops my C41 film recently gave me a Canon EOS A2e so of course I "needed" a lens for it
it start with a new SLR, and soon you'll have a LBA in many brands

Scanned this today.

Context : last week end, in Paris, France, there was the world championship of climbing.
During this comp's there is 3 kind of category : lead, boulder and speed.

main goal of lead is to reach the top of a climbing route (left wall, hidden from the public). it require lots of stamina, strenght, skills, and of course will. route was around 15m height, and 20m developped (real lenght of the route : take in account inclination of the wall - around 35 degree this year !)
To compare to running, this would be a kind of 400m or 800m.

boulder (two "blocks" on the middle) focus on the hardest climbing move possible. require lots of strenght, calm, and recovery skills between each attempt. Main goal is to start from bottom and "starts holds" and reach the top without falling between. 4min to do the boulder. As many tries as you want during this time. Keep in mind that the final score is done by the combination of 4 boulder, so the less try you do to succes, the "fresher" you'll be for the next !

And speed (right wall) ... well, it's not climbing for me !


back to the pictures :

The place before the beginning of the event.
Pentax SuperA + FA-J 18-35 @18mm @f4 + Superia 200 @100.

during the event, it was fully crowded, some even sat up during the show !

here is a set of women boulder final.

Pentax SuperA + vivitar S1 (ver1) 70-200/3.5 @135mm f3.5 + Kodak portra 160 @1250.

lots of staff and press for the event.


All following shots done with Pentax SuperA + Vivitar S1 (ver1) 70-210/3.5 (mostly at 200mm f3.5) + Kodak portra 160 @ 1250.


4minutes to do the boulder (from bottom to top without falling between). A quick look before a first try, to confirm the method (beta) to succed. Climber : Kim Jain, from South Korea


A first try of the boulder by Anna Stöhr, Austria.


2nd boulder. From time to time, the "creators" of the boulder like to put some spectaculary movements : here, climbers had to jump on a very very small hold they can't see when they jump ! Super tricky move' - but the crowd loved it !


many tries ....


... some better than other ...


... some succeded ...


... where many failed.

Hope you liked it !

btw : i would have killed, just to get a 300mm /f4 during this day !
Smell LBA for the next big comps

And i was truely impressed by the Portra 160. it just rock whatever the exposure setting you do. Color are super vibrant (far more than superia 200 for example), even pushed 3 stops it has almost no grain. sad my lab don't push more than 3 stops

Took this with a Super Tacumar 1.4 just bought on this forum, using an old recently acquired SP11 and some old Fuji (age unknown) 200 Superia. It was a first- time test of the camera, film and lens

Very nice shot. I don't know that film, but it has great colors. I really like the light in this one. The back light on the boy is great, and the shadows. Lots to like here.
