I quite like the lifeguard chair one.... lower contrast sky gives it a very surreal feel

The chair is out of focus. It was pitch dark. I could barely see 2 feet in front of me, much less focus the camera. I guessed it at infinity, but I was a little off. The surreal feeling was what I was after with these. It kind of worked out. I'll know what to do next time.

Thanks for looking guys!

I have to say, the quality of images here has gone up a few notches lately, with excellent processing and artisitc content. Surely these are prime examples of why film still lives.

nesster, you are right. I'm seriously regretting having sold my 6x7. But I'm not missing the time in the darkroom.

Jake, it's been a little while since I've shot film or in the dark this way but a little suggestion with a static subject. Get one of those large 4 D cell "policeman batton" flashlights that you can focus the beam. Use that to illuminate your subject (like the chair) as a focusing aid. I used to do that all the time and it worked great for me.

I gotta say I've come back to those shots a couple of times today and that Lighthouse shot is one of the best images B&W I've seen in a long time.

Yes, I could not agree more. It is getting to the point where I am intimidated to post up my own pictures. Time to step it up.


Jake, consider zone focusing as well for those times when you can't see what your shooting. though that would also depend on lens...Ah what do I know, I am just learning myself.


Peter, good to see yo hanging in the darkside with us.

Finally got around shooting some rolls with my new Pentax MX... First B&W film ever. Taken either with a 50mm f1.7 or 28mm f2.8 on FP4+ and T-Max 100 (shot one of each). Scans are cheapo :/



FP4+



Edit: comments and critiques are very welcome!
Love this shot and it will also fit in well in the graffiti thread.

Jake67, I am also a fan of 3.

Nikon F3HP | Nippon Kogaku 5.8cm f/1.4 Pre-AI | Expired 4/2005 Superia 1600



... man, who's thirsty? Nice one.

I totally should have had a flashlight with me. It just slipped my mind and I was in the middle of nowhere at 2:00AM. Next time, I'll know what to do.

Great idea - gives me an excuse to show pics from the mid 80s, with ASA400 film I've long forgotten, the Oly OM2s and the Tamron 35-80 SP... Some of the best pictures I've ever taken were from that time.







Most of these are scans of prints...
Going over the thread again and this is one great photograph..

Fisheye frenzy redux

They are indeed. The frames are beautiful, but the build kit is pretty pedestrian, mostly shimano nexus and off-brand bits.


We'll see how they sell next to the Pashley's and Batavus'.
