Your SLR Images

I come to RFF because I like rangefinders, but moreso because I like the brains that frequent it. I'm primarily an SLR shooter, though, so I feel a bit weird about posting images outside this sub-forum unless it was actually a rangefinder image. But, I'm interested in seeing your SLR images too, so to that end I propose a thread of SLR images. Anything goes, subject-wise. Shots you like, etc.

So, what are you doing with your (evil) SLRs?

One of my recent ones to start:


(Les oiseaux du mal)
Mamiya 645, 80mm f/1.9, Ilford Pan F+, Formulary WD2D+



Now then.....show us something of yours!

I don't have a CRT monitor at work so I can't evaluate what I can't see. However, I noted you used WD2D+ on that shot. How have you found that? Do you shoot your film at its rated ISO or below? I just got some and am anxious to try it.

I got SLR to get some idea about this culture.
And for tele (and wide too), 'cause I'm fixed lens RF person.

Lately got some SLR normal lens GAS, though....

I prefer SLRs.

I still have a rangefinder, though, because there are so many different lenses one can use on the M-platform. Old lenses, less old lenses, current/new lenses. Leica, Voigtlander, Konica, Zeiss....

But, i'd rather look through the lens than through a 'disassociated' window.....

From yesterday - Westover ARB, Chicopee, MA
Oly E510 and its 40-150 kit lens.




I tend to use the OMs for street photography with slightly longer lenses and the Bessa with the wider ones but this is a better example of when I wouldn't bother with an RF at all.

I've had an on again-off again-on again relationship with RF shooting. There are times when the size/weight/bulk advantage of RF gear win out and there are other times when the versatility of a DSLR/SLR (esp. when I need a lot of reach or when shooting macros) win out.

For almost two decades I used a Canon FTb and an M3 pretty much interchangeably, barring stuff like close-ups. Now I often cannot tell which camera was used for a particular roll. However, I have been careful to post on RFF only pictures that were certainly taken with an RF camera. Allowing SLR photos is of course a good idea.

I'm glad to see this off to a good start! It's always good to see other people's work.

I love WD2D+, and I tend to go back and forth between it and HC-110 (dilution G), which says a lot in its favor given my devotion to HC-110. I haven't really fine-tuned it with the FP4+, as I just started working with that film, but with Tri-X I shoot it at EI 200 and that has given me very nice results.

Thanks! Baudelaire is one of the few writers whose language has reached me at such a deep level as to inspire and influence my visual work. Nabokov and a few others as well.

I use both RF and SLR, but for focal lengths between 28 and 90, I prefer rangefinders.
For this decisive moment, however, I was happy not having to get close to the action - hope it's not too rude for this forum:


Best regards,
Uwe

Welcome to the forums. I really like your shot. Beautifully done!

Wish I could get Agfa to work for me. I just never could get either Agfa b/w or color to work for me.

I use my (evil) SLR when I shoot landscapes, so I can use filters...

...like a graduated neutral density filter.

Taken with a Minolta X-370, and a 28mm f/2.8.
