That's the point, USE some film camera! :P
We moved recently -- bought a new house. Unfortunately I lost my shop when we moved. If our homeowners association will allow it, I plan to build a new shop attached to the garage. But until that happens, I have nowhere to work on guitar builds. So, even if I wanted to, I can't take film shots of the build process.

I shot a few frames at this guy's shop quite a few years ago (it would have to be almost 20), presumably squirreled away among my 1,000's of negatives:

Anyhoo I'm not going to try to find them anytime soon, and besides, he seems to have a pretty decent 'tour' on his web site.

Nice photo. I'm wondering what kind of tree that is with the flaking bark... Nice composition with the perspective of the trees and building. That pavement mark almost aligns the first verticals.
I think it's a type of birch. The bark on the upper part of the trunk looks just like birch bark but it's not white. Te leaves are jagged like birch leaves as well.

Can't quite see the leaves and such very well but looks like it could be a Sycamore.

My neighborhood is full of Sycamores and they're very different. Thy do have flaking bark though.

Nice photograph, great geometries. And I can see Birch on that other one, big tree compared to East Coast ones that I've seen with somewhat similar bark.

So I searched the google for awhile and all I found that was close was Chinese Elm.

Oh wow - that does look close. Seems like Ashland would be a place that'd bring in a "exotic" street tree.

What a difference getting a different light meter app on my phone made. I can go through this roll and spot the moment where I swapped apps, as all of a sudden the exposure gets more accurate. (Though not entirely, since I'm not always metering on the right spot.)



Pentax 6x7.
Super-Multi-Coated Takumar/6x7 90mm f2.8.
Fujicolor Pro 400H (expired).

I was using "Tiny Light Meter" (no longer available in the Android store) and I switched to "Light Meter Tools".

They both provided EXIF-based metering using the phone's camera, except Light Meter Tools allows choosing where in a scene to meter from and Tiny Light Meter was just averaging the entire scene from what I could tell. (I haven't tested out the ambient meter on Light Meter Tools yet, as the light sensor based ones tend to be a bit inconsistent on Android phones from my experience. )
