Portrait on Kodak Tri-X

 

Made this shot at work after totally geeking out about M42-Lenses 😀
This is a pretty good example of what these lenses can do! Super sharp and crisp images. It shows my buddy Hendrin –> You can check out his photography on his Blog right HERE.

Shot with the classic Pentax Spotmatic SPII + the Asahi Super Takumar 55mm f1.8, loaded with Kodak Tri-X, rated at ISO 400 and finally homedeveloped in Kodak D76.

In love with Kodak Tri-X + D-76

 

Feeling at home with Kodak Tri-X @ISO 400 + Kodak D76 🙂
The look gets in a direction where I want it to be!

It took me about 14 rolls of film to say that. Mostly Tri-X, some Ilford HP5-experiments and the tough decission between Rodinal and D-76.

Though I’m definitely a grain-lover Rodinal just gave me a way to hefty grain-structure with a loss of detail. Now that I tried to slightly overexpose my frames D-76 gives me a fine but still visible ultra classy grain-structure 🙂

Enough of experimenting! I can finally start to put more detailled work into the Tri-X + D-76-Process 🙂

 

From todays sunny photowalk with the Fuji X100t in Hamburg.
I went home with mostly colour-shots. Don’t know why but most of them just seemed to look a lot better in colour. This is my absolute favorite from today. I had to wait a pretty long time to get the right person in the frame but it was worth the wait I think.

Will be uploading the other shots from the walk soon.

BTW: I finally managed to get a second battery for my fuji as battery-life on this small camera still sucks which means: 2 hours of shooting and I’m empty… So from now on I’ll have 4 hours! 2 hours more to catch the right stranger in perfect light!

Street Musician Hamburg

Street Musician in Hamburg – probably captured with the Pentax Spotmatic SPII on Kodak Tri-X @ ISO 400. Home-Developed in Rodinal/Adonal.

I love the scene for the musician and the girl on the left looking like they would interact with each other soon. I can’t remember if they really did…
