Today, on the way back from the business meeting, I noticed one tree. I’ve traveled this route a thousand times and I’ve only noticed him today. Again … WOW. The last shot was available in Leica. About a third of the film remained in the second camera with a color negative. It was such a beautiful light and I cursed that I just set off without spare negatives.Now I have to dry the color negative quickly so I can look at it again….
Leica R7 VE-28-70mm, Fomapan 400 profiline, Full analog process
Magnola 13 x 18, ISO 100, exp. 1/10, f5,6 Full analog Pull process Kodak T-max. Because I don’t have a magnificer for such large negatives at home, I scanned the board in parts and then merged the parts in Lightroom. I took other pictures on large format FKD, but the negatives are still in the process. I probably fell in love with the big format 😁.
Those who suffer from this diagnosis certainly understand me. From time to time I buy old, sometimes very old negative films in the bazaar. The reason is simple. With such material, you never have a chance to enter the same river twice. You even have a no chance to know what river you’re entering. You will find out everything only after the process of developing the negative is completed. The following pictures were taken on a negative from 1989. It still responds quite well to light, even though I already knew that I had to take pictures with an overexposure of at least 3 EV. I have the oldest such negatives from 1974. But I will wait with them until a really sunny day and a good idea.
When I was buying equipment for the studio, I thought of buying a mannequin. Thanks to she, it is possible to have a light ready even in a relatively small photo studio. When I then looked at it all, it occurred to me that even the production of an ordinary mannequin must have preceded its development. It’s an incredibly cool calculation of beauty… And because she’s not alive, I added her to the Mix of .. gallery.
after a week in the darkroom, i had to take a picture of my DSLR Nikon yesterday. I already felt sorry for him …. The picture is taken almost in the dark at ISO 50, with an aperture of 2.8 and a shutter speed of 1 s. Of course from a tripod. The shadows are caused by a multi-arm lamp at the other end of the room.
Today I started to repair one old Prakticar Pentacon 50mm f / 1.8 lens. The camera’s exposure meter could not transfer the aperture value from the lens. It wasn’t the type of glitch that would make it impossible to use the lens, but I like it when things work 100%. After disassembly, a broken plastic of the contacts and a torn resistance path wire were found. A little tin and a melting gun solved it all. Black and white images are taken today after the repair and functionality test.
Tomorrow will finally be time to meet professionals and true analog photography enthusiasts. I’ve been invited several times, but something always went wrong and I couldn’t attend.I apologized in advance that I don’t own a large format device, so I’ll only arrive with my medium format Pentacon Six. So tomorrow will be marked by large-format photography, combined with the presentation of his own work. So I spent today selecting and producing photos taken with a 100% analog process. Maybe they will like some of the photos. Keep your fingers crossed for good luck …
