    Results from 'Blad Shakedown

    First time using one - but the first hurried roll from the 503CW 'blad and 2,8/80 Planar is done. Shot on Kodak T-Max 100, souped in Xtol 1:1. Click for larger/info:



    The rest are all in this exhibition. 10 out of 12 shots; the two missing were brackets (dupes). What a load of fun it was to shoot, and this eclectic test roll seems to indicate it's in working order. Now on to business!

    I can see why, it's a solid camera with my favorite optics - Zeiss!

    So I totally spaced mixing up the HC-110 the other day. Was supposed to be dilution H, ended up mixing dilution B... But left the HP5+ in the soup for the full ten minutes. Ooops. I managed to save most of the shots with a bit of fiddling on the scanning and a little more in Photoshop. They do have a bit of a "gritty" feel from the grain and all, which is what I was after anyway - so I lucked out a little. Click for larger/info:



    The whole gallery is here.

    Beautiful shots. They remind me of home. I grew up in CT in a salt box house from the 1740s. It has a very similar look and feel to it.

    Thanks, Stuart!

    Wow, nice. The clapboard is is great on these older structures. Very, I don't know - "New Englandy?"
