    I bought 300 rolls of 220 of the stuff once it's discontinuance was announced. You can still get it in sheet format though.


    I also buy the pyrocat premixed (well.. there's a part A and B ). The dust is the bad stuff... but i still wear gloves. the developing for the 220 is done in a tank, so no tray for that

    I've been scanning slides of Japan from 1991. Last night, the software went wonky and only did one scan instead of 12?

    The first seven years of my life were downwind from Hanford, so the pyro doesn't bother me (I glow at night). But, I'll stick to sending them to the lab, anyway. Kudos to those who do their own developing.

    Let me second that in the strongest way possible! Those are gorgeous and there's a depth to the image that is almost mind-bending! I've been shooting since 1974 and I've NEVER been able to come close to the magnificent job you've done with this subject! WOW!

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Yes, they are really lovely! I love the third one as well, with the single tree. It would be really lovely to be there right now...

    Here is a color one I developed recently. I do not like color developing! Or color neg! But it seems to work.


    And these are from the same outing the other night with my friend.







    Apologies...I know they are all quite similar, but I like the different nuances.

    I like that you posted the variations. Here's my 2 cents. Where her eyes are looking seems to be the most important variable. I think that i like the first one the most, even though, she's (maybe) looking slightly high. To me,the second portrait wants more context to her left, and mayber her whole body shown, similar to one of your earlier posts with the cotton grass. PP in all three is excellent. You have a talent for images that appear low in overall contrast, but have great detail and dynamic range. Nicely done color photo, also.

    Cheers, Matt

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Thank you all very much! I really appreciate the kind words!
    Matt -- thanks for the critique, I think it is really useful. I agree with you that I like the first one the most, even if she looks high (I swear, no pot involved! Heh, I know what you meant...). I like the expression (whatever is going on in the mouth/pout), as well as the angle and the fortuitous breeze. Interesting comment on the second one as well, I had not really considered that! It makes sense.
    On post processing -- I don't think I can take much credit! I try to find soft light, and the rest is mostly due to Carl Zeiss, George Eastman and Alfred Harman! I only apply a tiny curve.

    I really like the colors you have captured in the market. I think you also did a nice job with the capture of the woman at the fruitstand. The lighting highlights the arm really well and the darker processing on the rest of her body clearly separates it from the "butt shot" genre (anyone on the Leica forum a couple of years ago remember that whole genre??).

    Ok, a couple more -- some graphic designers (and M8 shooters! Sacrilege!) visited the lab the other day...I was showing them the Hexar AF. I think its shutter made them jealous as their M8 gunshots went off! (kidding of course).

    First MF shots for me since the 70s. Taken with my new (to me) Fuji GW690III (fixed 90mm f/3.5 lens). Gotta love the smooth tones and amazing detail captured by MF. And the GW690 is pretty easy to handle, even though it's truly a giant camera.

    The medium format Fuji looks like quite the beast. You sure do make nice photos with it, Mike! Love that old Plymouth.

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Lovely shots Mike. I like the first shot of the plymouth best as well. The Fuji rangefinders are really nice beasts! I used to have the G690 (the interchangeable lens one). I sold it when I decided to go to a Mamiya 7, but I do prefer the 6x9 neg in the Fuji. But just 8 shots a roll, so you have to make them count!

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Thanks, Maggie and Stuart. I probably like the Plymouth one the best too. It was my last frame of three rolls shot that evening, so it was relatively dark by then. It got some of the dusky atmosphere in it.

    Stuart, you are so right. I had in my head that I was getting 9 frames per 120 roll, and that was bad enough. Then I realized I was only getting 8. Well, the excitement of shooting a new camera overrode all (or most) caution. As it was, only 1/3 of what I shot was worth showing to anyone else. This could be an expensive experiment, but I think the tones and detail possible with this camera/lens/film format might make it worth it -- if I can live up to it.

    Thanks again...

    Stuart: The facial expressions and body language in your portraits is always very interesting. Her's changes from skeptical to sel-satisfied/pleased. His seems the same: bemused.

    Mike: Stellar! I like the plymouth, also; but, that pallet photo's really cool. Great pp and IQ. I look at a used Mamiya 645 AFDd every time i go into the camera store; and, then I hit myself in the head with one of the Leica books that are stacked right there.

    It's a shame Stuart deleted the excellent photos of the M8-toting graphic designers in the post to which I refer, though.

    Thanks Matt. Regarding, the 645 -- it's only a half-frame camera -- go all the way .

    (of course, all the LF people are then saying to me, "get a real camera and shoot at least 4x5").

    Nice ones Scott. I can easily see why you're liking that new camera.

    BTW, did you find it difficult to link from Flickr since the new version went live? I sure have.

    Thanks Lloyd. Agreed the new and improved Flickr is much more of PITA to link from. I have been clicking on the "Share this" tab, selecting "grab this HTML", choosing the size, and copying everything from the "http://farm.....jpg" string.

    Is that how you are doing it?

    I've done it that same way as well, but recently discovered that I could choose the View All Sizes in Actions; choose the size I want, then right-click on that image, and choose "Copy Image Address", and get the same thing.

    BTW, I went to the Help forum in Flickr and saw that there were a couple of people posting who seemed to know an awful lot about the new changes, and who vigorously (and sometimes rather snidely) defending Flickr, but who were not identified as Staff. I called them out, and accused them of being shills for Flickr. I was promptly told I was being "timed out" from the forum for "name calling" and "finger pointing"

    If I defend Flickr's new layout, will you call me a shill, too?

    Because, aside from the bbcode markup problems (which Flickr never supported, anyways), I think the new layout and functionality are major improvements to the site.

    Lloyd that definitely sounds like a better way.

    Maggie, I agree, in general it is an improvement. Despite finger pointers like Lloyd!

    I don't care about the new look one way or the other. What I don't like is the inability to turn of the viewing of different sizes. Yes, I know you could always see the large size when playing the Slideshow (but that wasn't widely known, and I only found it out recently). I'd just like to have the option. I also discovered that you can't disable camera info. I posted a pic as a test, and there it was. "Taken on X date, with a D3" I'd also like the option not have that visible.

    BTW, they really were shills. I went back through several threads on the so-call Help forum, and in every thread where there were folks complaining about the new changes (and, the primary complaint was not having the option to limit the viewing of different sizes), those same two people were vigorously shooting down complaints... Over, and over again. The were just a little too smooth, knew an awful lot about the changes, and Flickr policies (and were even able to link to them, and to responses on other threads). There answers were smack on the Flickr "party line". They also repeated the same responses over and over... in one case, one posted essentially the same response more than a dozen time over about a 12 hour period. (I was "timed out in part" because I "repeated the same argument... I post a total of 4 times over about an hour!) Then, when one of the Staff actually posted, I went to his page, and guess who shows up on his contact list. Yup, both of them. And btw, none of them ever denied being shills.

    Agreed, that is not acceptable.

    Lloyd, I don't know if you are a Lightroom user, but I am pretty sure that you can disable posting all metadata as an option in the new Flickr posting function in LR3

    What's wrong with posting metadata? I've learned a lot by looking at other people's files.

    Stripping it out just seems kinda selfish to me. But what do I know? I don't even get paid to shill for Flickr.

    Well, I have my nefarious (but not selfish) reasons. And you'd never stoop to such things. Well, unless you were paid in guitar picks and developing supplies, eh?

    Could you explain those reasons? I honestly don't understand why you would need to hide that information on photos posted to Flickr. Is someone paying you to hide your EXIF data? Why?

    I haven't done any pro work since I went digital, so I'm ignorant of any reasons to hide that data.

    And you know, if a client asked me to, I'd strongly resist it, or just not post the stuff to Flickr, I guess.

    No big deal, I just use a variety of cameras, and occasionally shoot with one or another that might belong to one of my sons. I used to get all sorts of questions about the cameras or the lenses versus the images, or comments like, "oh new camera, I wish I was wealthy so I could by one... you're so lucky", from random people. So I just started not allowing that info to be seen. Here, by contrast, I post in the specific forum thread, and include all the info. Different group of people here, so I don't mind.

    Ah, the bane of the internet: the random jerk.

    I just ignore those guys, unless I can actually help a new photographer out with some tech advice.

    Thanks for answering my ignorant question, Lloyd. You're not selfish at all.

    Got my first test shots taken with my newly acquired Mamiya C330F, and so far I'm very pleased. I thought the shutter may be one stop slow, and the photos are a tad overexposed based on using my iPhone to meter the scene, but it's manageable. I'm very happy with the results!

    Thank you! I appreciate the feedback! I hadn't used that film before, so I wasn't sure what I was going to get. I got the cheapest slow film I could find for these test shots, and I didn't spend a lot of time composing as I normally do. I'm also thinking I'll definitely need to get the 55 lens to get the wider shots. That, and at least some form of portable support I can take with me.

    Here's a few more:

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Here's a couple of Pike Place Market images from the early 1970's. Both were taken with a Nikkormat. I don't know whether, i like the more contrasty, CS5 punched-up, version, or the lighter one. I like the greater detail in the lighter one. I think, film is much harder to pp (IMHO given my photoshop skill level). "Get it right in the camera" is correct (but time travel's not an option). I'd be interested in some comments/critique
    Cheers, Matt

    Dragos: Nicely done! I had to google that camera. Looks very cool. You probably get some looks when your shooting with it.
