A couple from last week's stroll in the GSMNP...

I'm just getting my feet wet with B&W film and am experimenting trying to get a good negative--in this case I rated Acros at half box speed and had the lab push it a stop. (In a few months, I'm looking forward to doing my own developing...from what I've read, Acros in two-bath Pyrocat might be the place to start when roll film makes fine tuning of development times impractical.)

Playing around with a few old files on a rainy morning:

A question for y'all, though...


Right now, I'm dependent on a lab for both developing and scans, so I'm curious as to your recommendations on how to get them the best quality negative to work with. From perusing the Web, I get the impression that the big error with B&W film is underexposure and over development. (I'm seeing a lot of people rate Acros at 80--or even 50 in a contrast-y scene--then develop N-1 or N-2.) Obviously that approach works better with sheets than it does with roll film, but if I shot most of a roll under roughly the same lighting conditions, do you think it would be worth having the lab under develop? Or is that just too high risk for minimal gain?

A question for you guys: any recommendation on green filters to "sift" shots of foliage a bit better? I'm considering a #11 yellow-green as an all-arounder, but wonder if the variety of greens I get here in the Southern Appalachia's call for the #58 heavy artillery.


At any rate, a couple from my first roll of B&W earlier this spring:

Another weekend bump, but I must say that I'm perplexed by the lack of interest from young men, especially. I mean, visit any photo hosting site like Flickr and take notice of all the pictures of contre-jured young lasses striking improbable (but languid) poses in front of bay windows and curtains exhaling with the force of palpable nubility. Now take a look at said lens that's created that Einstein-Rose bridge to a reality sadly unknown to you up 'till now. That's right, it's a 105/2.4 or 168/2.8 that's bending the space-time continuum.


Now, I can't in good faith attest that buying one--or ideally, both--of these lenses will turn your life into an Axe commercial, but, my frères, whose manhoods have hitherto been sublimated in a maelstrom of manbunn'd ennui and secret, Weimar-esque fappening, I ask you: what do you have to lose?:lol:

Taking a bit of a break from my Pentax 67 to try to understand view cameras--one take-away: having an Airedale strapped to one wrist the first time you set up adds an unnecessary amount of complication, especially when there are bunnies and chipmunks around.:lol: Shot on Portra 160 using a 6x12 RFB, then cropped to 1:2.5.

One that PF members Jacquot and Mole will recognize--Porter's Creek in the GSMNP. It's one of the lovelier flows I've been on (which is saying a lot) so it was nice to explore quickly without a fly rod in my hand. Still learning my P 67 kit-- for instance, that the 55/4 vignettes a bit with the CPL/hood arrangement I'm using--but otherwise I remain a big fan of Acros.:)

Very cool--I had always thought of Yorkshire and Powys, Wales as being the "lead capitals" of the UK, but this really seems to be a great historical site. I'll definitely try to make my way there the next time I'm England if I don't get distracted by the trout streams in that part of the world.

That's very generous of you--right now my film work is could be an entry in the Journal of Irreproducible Results, so I think I'll work my way up from one "keeper" per roll before pestering you too much. (I have to say, my first roll of Velvia 50 was just embarrassing...) If it all gets too confusing trying to bridge "technologies," I might just go way back up the holler and try my hand at 8x10 contact prints...mail 'em to folks.:lol:

Ha, the great thing is that no matter what lens you start with, more are sure to follow.:) There are a lot of great lenses in available, but the 105/2.4 is the one that sells a lot of people on the system in the first place. Otherwise, if we're talking "reasonably" priced lenses, you've got two great wide angles available--the 45/4 and 55/4--and three short tele's: the 165/2.8, the LS 165/4; and the new version of the 200/4. And if you have a (much:lol:) larger budget, the 75/2.8 AL is legendary, as are the M* 300 and 400 on the long end.


Enjoy exploring!

Nice set--I'll pick #2 in the series, though I'm surprised the reds in the bridge were that understated...I'm betting the scene looked a bit more Technicolor to the naked eye.:) At any rate, if you're back (home?) in Shanghai, be sure to check out People's Park there close to Nanjing Road--the Marriot looming over the lotus ponds like something out of Star Wars was a trip.
