Re: Tree stump beacon

Maris, yes you're about right on the exposure :) Interesting that you rated APX100 around iso64... perhaps the film has lost no speed then, in the 25 years since its expiration. Oh, and the fix to speed graphic was done over breakfast this morning. I was trying to work out why they didnt ship them t...

Tree stump beacon

This was a morning session at a crossing of the Molonglo river that hundreds of Canberrans drive past each day. The stump immediately stood out as a nice thing to shoot. Upon developing the negatives, this was the only sheet that looked thin, but I'm very happy with it. I think the stump clearly sta...

Re: A few from around Kosci on expired film

Walter, thanks for that! I've usually been sticking to F22-32, thinking it was some kind of universal sweet spot... I need to read Thalman's stuff! I didnt realise it varied by lens, but thinking now, of course it should. I've not fired up the large format enlarger yet, but have signed up for a mont...

Re: A few from around Kosci on expired film

Maris!! That is triple-A rated, gold plated tip giving mate, thanks so much! I was confused about having only up-tilt... this will make a huge difference. I shot some 35mm down the valley from Spencers creek last week, but it didnt even occur to me that I was looking toward Tate. I'll go back and ha...

A few from around Kosci on expired film

I tested some old Agfa Agfapan APX 100 last week, it had expired in the same year that I finished high school, 1997. It was still shooting just fine and I settled on something between iso 50 and 100 and shot a bunch of sheets these past few days. They're each shot on the speed graphic with the 150mm...

Thanks a lot for the info and encouragement everyone. Trust me when I say that catching my kids engrossed in whats on he TV is like shooting fish in a barrel... i could do it all day, without even needing to ask them to hold still! Walter, I'd already had a few goes loading and unloading the septums...

Re: Watching TV

Thanks Walter! Yep, I took it out on a dog walk yesterday and will see how the FP shutter works... this, like you say, will open lots of opportunities to shoot 4x5 in situations where it would have previously been another format. It came with a work grafmatic too, and the idea of holding a large for...

Watching TV

This is the first sheet of film that I've run through a new-to-me LF rig, a Graflex Speed Graphic from around 1968. Its a "Model FP" and has a Rodenstock Sironar N 150mm attached. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51822332857_6435ef253e_c.jpg Watching TV by J P , on Flickr This was the t...

Re: Blueys fall

Thanks for the welcome back, Walter! In truth I've been making lots and lots of photos, but mainly with my 6x6 bronica and various 35mm shots. I've been enjoying a nice long summer break with fam, and those smaller cameras are quicker and less of a drag for everyone to wait around :) Thanks for the ...
