Leica LTM - Post your portraits

The Leica M section has a portrait thread, so why not the LTM thread!

I'll kick it off

I've been trying to get my head around getting consistent results from Rodinal and Rollei R3. Consistent, GRAINY results that is! a nice, grainy "vintage" look.

i'm getting close, i think.

Leica IIIf BD, 35mm Summaron F3,5 at F3.5 - Rollei R3 in 1:20 Rodinal.


Now post your portraits, looking forward to seeing what everyone is producing with these old little cameras

Rick,

Bizarre, but as soon as I saw the top 1/2 of this one, I said Summitar (I must get out more). Love that Extar.....

Another great shot BTW

Here's a couple from the batch of film I'm scanning for a friend ... shot in the mid thirties.
I certainly didn't take them but they're well worth posting.

Another great shot BTW
I tried shooting with the Summitar wide open during that not-so-serious photoshoot, an idea I borrowed from LeicaTom. Now, if only I could get the same gorgeous models he works with

Some more portraits to stay on topic

Fort Vechten - Sept 2007. Leica IIIa, 90mm f/4 Elmar, VIDOM finder, Adox 400 I think (need to look it up)

Another greta shot, Rick, I really must try my 90mm Elmar, bought off Kim Coxon years ago and still sitting in my LTM drawer.

I think you have a real feel for these period shots.

Zorkikat - I like the LuckPan shot - great tones. I used to shoot that in toy cameras, but don't seem to be able to get it regularly these days.

Thanks John. Luckypan in paRodinal or Rodinal gives nice tones. With some texture reminiscent of the old emulsions. Luckypan is still widely available here, and is perhaps the most commonly found BW film now in SE Asia.

Looks like a Xenon on a III ?

The touring car in the other photo looks like it might be a '29 or '30 Lincoln...
