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.
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!
From my little review about the Voigtländer Vitomatic IIa 🙂
Shot on Kodak Tri-X, home developed in Kodak D-76.
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…
Kodak Tri-X @ ISO 400, developed in Adonal/Rodinal with a pretty grainy result here.
Shot with the Leica M6 TTL, scanned with reflecta ProScan 10t
