I like the idea.... I know Pnet usually has folks that do a thread on Sunday evening asking for each person's pic of the week.. it's kind of neat :)

And that dog looks kind of angry :D

Lets definitely keep it going. How about we say Wednesday is the day each week. It'll break up the boring work week. My personal preference is always for minimal photoshop work, but that doesn't mean others cant experiment.

Fuji 400, exposed as if it were 800. QL17 GIII. Minimal photoshopping. Those incandescent twinlamps really add a warm cast to it.

Pic of the week? This one isn't terribly special, but then again, maybe it is. I shot some stills for a friend's short film on Saturday and one of the actor's kids ran in during a break and jumped up onto the couch. I dunno, I just hope that some day if I ever settle down and have kids, it's like this.

My picture of the week -although I wasn't using my bessa so it's Pentax 6x7 with 105 2.4 shot at 1/125 @ f4 -they said it couldn't be done with the '6x7 and they may well be right. I commend the bokeh of this lens to you and remind you that complete pentax 6x7's can be had for little more than a second hand 50mm 'cron....

Bertram I'm really looking forward to your conclusions ! :) For some reasons I can't stop thinking that shot is a miss by a fraction of second, with the juggling action of the girl in the background more visible.

I think we should keep the weekly "theme" open and have everyone just pick what they want to post each week. Doesnt need to be shot during the week of posting either unless you want to do it that way.

Daniel, I like them both, #2 makes me think about the França train station in Barcelona.

That said, I really like #1 for various reasons. First is the general sense of intimacy of that shot, makes me think on a warm evening coffee at home while it's cold and rainy outside. I also like how you managed to use the Moskva in a field where it's not probably the best choice of a camera (close up portrait). I love the light fall off in the corners and that you included the photos in the fridge door, which connect directly with your main subject.

Just my 0.02 :)

From our trip to Cambridge last week: St. John's College, the cloisters that run on from the Bridge of Sighs.

It took me ages to figure out why this looked wonky - the wall isn't square to the floor!

Totally OT, sorry. :o
I did not take it this week. And it is not RF.
BUT I scanned it this week the first time since it was taken 1974 ! It has slept in a folder for 31 years and it is one of those historical shots I have chosen to test my new 4490 .

Minolta SRT101b, 2,8/135, FP4 in Rodinal ( not sure), scanned neg with Epson 4490
at 4800ppi, resized, curves adjusted, USM and little retouche with PS. The scanner does more and better than I expected it to do.

She was one of those friends who introduced me into the art od souping and printing.

This week I submit two images taken with a 6x9 folder, the camera is called a "Bower-X" (aka. Adox sport IIIa rouge), it's a beautiful red folder with a Schneider Radionar 105/4.5, it's very small and pocketable. The weather has been piss poor this week so these are inside test shots, can't wait for better weather to test it a bit more. This is a 620 film camera, believe it or not I was able to "modify" some rolls of 120 to fit and it appears to work pretty good.

Nice, Todd! I too like the Coke machine shot. Reminds me of a 5˘ Coke machine at the shooting range at Lackland AFB in 1962; even then a nickel bottle of Coke was startling. How about a shot of the pretty red camera itself? Looking forward to more from it too.

I guess I could contribute one from my 1930's era Kodak Junior 620 with 105mm f/7.7, shooting Kodak Portra 160 wound onto 620 spools.

Last weekend I was in the countryside again and not a lot to make outside, so, highly inspired by Daniel family galleries I decided to make some home shooting with the Bessa-T and the Canon 50/1.2. Film was some old and outdated bulk loaded Jessops 400 (HP5, I think).

Its a great camera to carry around. According to the Yashica Guy, the only real difference with the 5000 and 5000e is the over/under exposure display in the viewfinder. I love the feel of it, nice and hefty metal design.

Here's mine for this week, and although it's on the same theme as my last few posts, this one is quite fresh, the negative is barely dry, which is a story in itself (Walgreens, HWGA) which I'll post separately.

I was hoping to capture the eerie, almost funereal quality of the last gasp of this dying casino in this shot. You really have to be there. I assume they are leaving some of the lights on for NYE. It actually closed November 17.

>May I ask why you say that?

Didn't you get yourself quite some amount of that film recently ? :)

Uh, yes, I did, actually, both before and after I took this trip.

Ok, gang, this is embarrassing. {blush}

I would have *sworn* I shot that on Agfa/WG 200, but I did shoot both Fuji and WG/Agfa (only those I think) on that trip. Maybe those of you who know the films better can help me out.

I was about to post that it was the WG/Agfa, but I thought I better check for sure, so I just looked at the negative.

It doesn't say Fuji on it, and I know that some/all/most Fuji color film says that, plus, some/most/all Fuji has a red and green color stripe on the side opposite the bar code, or whatever that is.

Well, the negative for this shot has no red/green stripe and definitely doesn't say Fuji (or Agfa or Kodak or whatever) on it, it also has red triangles right over the bar code.

I was just about to post that it was WG/Agfa 200 but I noticed this on the film: "ISO 400/27 {degree sign} N" and some other code of "8045-10 28R" on it.

Does anybody know what film this is?

I **KNOW** I never bought any Walgreens/Agfa until this week, never ever. I had a mix of Fuji 200 and 400, plus a few rolls of the WG/Agfa what I thought was 200 on the trip. I'm very sure of this, since I took the rolls out of the canisters and put them in a clear baggie so I could hand them to the security people at the airport to hand inspect.

(Am I on drugs here?)

Is this maybe WG/Agfa 400 film mislabeled as 200?

I'm totally confused. Anybody know how to identify this kind of film?

LOL...let's see some of yours! :DOooops. Hey, dadsm3, this is the first time in a week I've checked back to this thread. But I think you've misunderstood me, and reading my "Perfect title for that shot." comment now, I can see why. :rolleyes: My "foot-in-mouth" buzzer just went off.

Anyway, I can't find the shot now, and it's been over a week so I'm not even sure if it was yours, but maybe you [or the owner] deleted it. I'm writing because I'm hoping you didn't think I was insulting the photo. My "perfect title..." comment was made quite sincerely because, if I remember correctly, the photo was shot of a young man sitting next to a tree or statue or something with his head down and looked like he was having a really bad day... going through a tough trial and would rather the world just left him alone. I looked at the shot and the title and thought to myself, "Test (or troubled trial) #2 - Please Ignore [and tell the world to leave me alone] ... Hmmmm. I've been there young man; I can sure relate."

So I actually did think it was an interesting shot and a perfect title... no sarcasm intended. If you or others thought I was being a smart a--, I can see why and please forgive. I'm not careful sometimes in making sure my written words convey my thoughts. I hope the image will be reposted. IMHO, it conveyed quite a mood and message... especially with that [maybe unintentional] perfect title.

Haven't posted one of these in ages...

Not RF :( - instead it's shot with the Bronica SQ-A with 80mm PS.

My wife's sister, shot last month but I didn't get round to the soup until the end of last week. Neopan 400 @ 640 in Diafine, f/2.8 and I think it might have been 1/30 but I can't remember.

Gotta love 6x6...

I haven't really shot much over the past couple weeks. I've mostly been scanning and printing, actually, a few rolls from back years ago.

Many of these I've never seen a good print of, and when viewed on the screen or in a nice large print, they look far more spectacular than they did on the B&W machine made prints that I had years ago.

Right now I'm going over several frames shot in the 59-60, Third to Lex area in Manhattan, which was a fave shopping area of mine way back when. Here's one of them ...

aad, the tattoo shop really tickles me, so to speak. :) How ironic to have a tattoo removal service replace a tattoo application service! And it speaks to "tattoo remorse"...

Hello,

It's my first photo here. It was in a bright room with some flash fill from a side mounted Vivitar 283 with a Stofen Omnibounce angled at 45 degrees. I believe it was at 1/60 and f/8. The camera was a Mamiya DSX 1000 and the lens a minty Hanimex 35mm-105mm zoom lens that I got from Mr. Coxon. The emulsion was Neopan 400 developed in 1:9 Aculux 2 for 18 3/4 minutes at 18 degrees Celsius with 10 seconds of agitation every minute.

Please advise.

Clarence

clarence, what is the main subject in your photo? (I'm guessing it is the beautiful woman in a kimono.) The ladies on the left, probably helped her get dressed in it.

Is the main subject supported by, or is the composition strengthened by, the guy on the right turned away from us, listening to an mp3 player and looking at something in his hand? He is the strongest visual element in your photo due to his size, proximity to the front, and his light coloured clothes.

Man, Reagan those Industar's give great results. That look you get with these lenses way is more apealing to me then allot of the old leitz lenses.
