It was a bright sunny day this morning, so good for a quick outing in the neighbourhood.
I was in St. James Cemetery recently, and was struck by this Christmas decoration beside a gravestone.
On Canada Day (July 1st) I was in High Park, Toronto, early in the morning. I was shooting Ultrafine Extreme 400, and while I have shot it before, this is the first time I developed it with Pyrocat-HD. I love this combination! Hasselblad 500CM, 50mm/f4 … Continue reading I Like This Combination!
I need to use my Sonnar 250mm/f5.6 lens on my Hasselblad more often. It performs very well wide open, and makes handheld shots practical. Hasselblad 500CM, 250mm/f5.6 Zeiss Sonnar lens with orange filter Ilford HP5 Plus film, developed in Pyrocat HD
So on Saturday I thought I had a roll of Kodak Tmax 100 loaded in my Rolleiflex. I was shooting it at EI 50 to try a technique I had heard about. When I finished the roll and unloaded the camera I found to my horror that it had been a roll of Tmax 400, thus I had overexposed by 3 stops. I did some research/guesswork, and tried developing it in Pyrocat HD developer for 10 minutes and I got very usable negatives. When I mixed up the Pyrocat HD solution it turned bright green, which I have not seen before, but it still worked!
I was at the St. James Cemetery this past Sunday morning, testing out a Zorki 4 (a Soviet era rangefinder) with an Industar-22 lens. The cemetery is a mature one, fairly full, but there is this one stone alone, isolated. I wonder why?
