Actually I fell in love with the Sonnar 50/2 collapsible that's sat on my Contax for a few months now.
I had a photoshoot with Rich again today. Some of you people may remember a previous blog with loads of shots of him.
I think the red filter REALLY helped. Course, I also let the scanner do its part in bumping up the levels, but that damned thing can't help the grain or anything. The images somehow look clearer than I've had before. Scanned at 720 not 600 maybe that helped too...Anyway, I fell in love with that lens all over again. I love the C-II, Rolleicord-III combo. It works for me.
I'll have a blog later tonight or tomorrow, with a large number of photo's. I'm waiting for Rich's approval on the ones he likes, and the ones to never see the light of day again.
Here's a sneak peek...
In fact... maybe it was shooting at f/4 not f/2 that did it?
And I know I should have this somewhere else, but here's a shot from the one roll through the Rolleicord..
Anyone want to see the rest?
I really am looking forward to the RFF meet on sunday. If I get ONE good photo on sunday my day won't be in vain
(1:25 in rodinal... first I developed the medium format Ilford Delta-400, then added a couple ml of rodi as 'top up', then developed the Agfa APX-400s expired film in the solution)
