TLRTuesday - Please Join In

I started a new project, due to my current obsession with TLR cameras. Post one of your favourite photographs taken with a TLR every Tuesday. Just one, and only on a Tuesday. Across all social media you are on (instagram, Facebook, twitter, flickr etc.). Hashtag it #tlrtuesday, share it and encourage others to do the same.

This is my fourth week, and #tlrtuesday no.4 is a double exposure I took (by accident) in Napoli in 2012... Here it is


#tlrtuesday no.4, Napoli Duo by Nick De Marco, on Flickr

And I started up a group on flickr for people to post theirs too: https:[email protected]/pool/

And now I have started this thread here I shall be back every Tuesday to add another one, and I really hope as many people as possible will join in. Only post your best. And please, just post on a Tuesday (every week if you can!)

Happy #tlrtuesday

Hi, Nick!

Oddly enough, I just pulled out my only TLR, the CiroFlex... I had a moment when I realized I desperately want a Rolleiflex but can never afford one. So, I got the bag with camera, film, etc and put in my X1 to use as a meter.

I will post on Tuesday on this forum.

Just finishing a roll this week but I have a few to share from previous outings.

Thank you for this interesting project. I need something inspiring for me to work on to help with my exhaustion and depression. Just in time for an early Spring in these parts!

The Ciro with a clean lens is a fine image maker. The Rolleis may be a bit smoother in use but the Ciro is no slouch. I CLA'd one for a friend and was very pleasantly surprised by the Wollensak.

Hi, Fixcinater! Sorry I don't remember your first name...

Yes, agreed, the CiroFlex is quite capable and I love it! If only I could remember the ISO of the film and advancing the film. Lol...

My eyes are having a difficult time when focusing but I don't know a solution for that...I plan on shooting a lot of rolls in the next couple of months. This is going to be fun!

Have you tried cleaning the inside of the viewing lens and the mirror (very gently, or replace it if corroded) and the ground glass? You could add a fresnel in there like the Yashicas and Rolleis have.

#tlrtuesday no.7 Wild Grass

#tlrtuesday no.7 - Wild Grass by Nick De Marco, on Flickr

Happy Tuesday RFF friends. Glad to see the messages above. Let's have some #tlrtuesday photos now...

I chose this photo of the wild grasses by a pond next to the canal near Mile End on a sunny winters day for my 7th #tlrtuesday not only because I love the colours and shapes but because it also shows what the Rollei T and medium format film can do. Razor sharp reproduction of the in focus grasses gradually becoming an appealing blur or booked as you move further from the focal point, giving the photograph a three dimensional but also quite abstract look.

Rollei 3.5T, Kodak Portra 400 - TLR Tuesday Review number 1. From my blog: http://rangefinderchronicles.blogspo...ay-review.html

Here is my first Tuesday post with a CiroFlex TLR. It is a multiple exposure of the County Courthouse here in our current hometown.

Still hoping to get out this week with the CiroFlex. I did manage to finish a roll with the grandkids on Saturday but that has not been developed yet...

So, my humble submission:

How did you meter this exposure?

Great to hear... Just found a box of Porta in my desk! We are looking for a much earlier Spring this year. So, the beginning of Spring flowers will begin soon with Daffodils and Sakuras and slowly build up to an amazing crescendo over the coming weeks.

We are going to need some more Portra film!

Hand-held meter (Sekonic L-248) aimed at the patch of grass at the bottom center just about where that one piece of grass is standing up. Then I opened up a stop which gave me this.

Lovely stuff

Here is mine this week

#tlrtuesday no.8 Canary wharf by Nick De Marco, on Flickr

#tlrtuesday no.8 - Canary Wharf. This was one of the first photographs I took with my Rolleiflex 2.8F many years ago. I have a darkroom print on my wall, but I never scanned or uploaded it until now. I liked it at the time because of the detail. I was in the shopping mall below the Canary Wharf tower and suddenly noticed the interesting patterns made looking through the glass domed roof.

By the way I read your lastest on the RFC; the Leica R6.2 looks like a great camera. I have too many cameras so I won't get one but I wish.

I just acquired a TLR today, so I hope to join in eventually. I'm a bit slow developing my film though (aka procrastinate). Bad habit.

Nick,
Here is my latest from the Ciroflex.
I just loaded a roll for another walkabout when the grandkids came over to visit. They kindly agreed to pose for a photo and said they would not smile the "cheesy smile"....they did anyway.

But not 'square'. Rolleicord IV with Rolleikin. Makes for a pretty good portrait combination.
