This photo is from a series from some of my crazy, extreme photo adventures I  had photographing Mountains "Alpinists " and rock climbers. This is Alpes mountain range which is called   "Le Massive du Mont Blanc", Haût Savoir region  In France.  And this place is a White valley ( La Vallee Blanche - Chamonix ) the most beautiful region You must visit. I was very brave enough to carry my Medium format two lenses/ meters/ and a Canon EOS and a 50mm, a lot of films No tripod/ It is crazy when I thi

Bonjour Henri,   I still prefer black and white film (I use almost no colour). The advantages of digital don’t mean much to me. Seeing instant results is not so useful, since what comes out of a camera is always far from a final result, and the final result requires time and thought.   Film also continues to improve. The quality of available film and developers is as good as it has ever been, and it is still as competent as digital sensors of equivalent size.   I also much prefer silver g

On a week-long stay at the Faroe Islands, I took the ferry from Torshavn (the 'capital') to the southernmost island, Suduroy, and looked up potential shooting locations on the island. This image was taken a little before the sun was setting in the ocean, with wind from the west (left). With the uplift of the humid air at the cliffs, fog and clouds drifted over the island. A quite typical situation for the islands; the ocean can be more or less cloud free, but the islands are generally covered in

Rolleicord Art Deco from 1933 with Triotar 75mm Carl Zeiss uncoated lense. Ilford Hp5+

Delightful Mucleica! I tested out an Art Deco Rolleicord (with difficulty - the mirror had largely de-silvered and the focussing screen was really dark) but using zone focus I got some great results with that beautiful Triotar lens. Such an attractive camera and the results speak for themselves.

Mine looks like brand new, screen is dark on those old models. Even the shutter seems to work accurately.

Got it via eBay, a lucky find.

Scanning for treasure. M4-P VC 75 f/1.5 Nokton. FP4 in HC 110 17 min. First time with this lens, and it is really challenging for me. Didn't like the rolls I developed at all, but maybe it's the developing--outside, because my kids have reclaimed their bathroom for the next month. Rotten kids!! 😀

Ken it looks to me a little (actually a lot) that you've inadvertently partially solarized your film - somehow light has gotten into the tank before the film has been fully fixed. Actually a pretty cool effect if it's what you're after, but I gather that wasn't the case this time. Sometimes just changing your routine - in this case, developing outside rather than in your usual place (bathroom) can lead to hiccups in the process. I'd say that has what has happened here and wouldn't worry too much. The lens is absolutely certainly not at fault here.

Got to master the TLR and parallax correction, aligning the top of the building in the mirror.  Really like the mood of this one

Thanks, Phil! That helps a lot. Kind of brutal schlepping water in and out of the house, and hoping everyone just leaves for a bit, so I can (against strict family orders!) just use the kitchen sink. 😀
