Barnack Challenge #33: "Seen Through"

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

As the winner of the last round (Look up! Look Up!) it is my great pleasure to set the theme for the next Barnack Challenge. So for the Barnack Challenge #33 I have chosen the theme "Seen Through"

 

The dates are:

Taking pictures:            Saturday 28th October to Sunday 5th November

Posting pictures:          Monday 6th November to Sunday 19th November

Voting:                         Monday 20th November to Sunday 3rd December

 

Good luck!

 

Regards,

 

Erl

 

 

As a reminder here are the rules:

 

The Barnack Challenge runs four times a year.

 

It is open to all Leica User Forum members. 

 

In order to participate you must shoot a roll of film in line with a predefined theme within a defined period using a Screwmount or early fixed-lens Leica camera. You may use any lens, regardless of age or manufacturer, as long as it is LTM.

 

Select your shot that in your view best matches the theme and post it onto a single thread set up for the purpose by the organiser in the Barnack Challenge Sub Forum. Post-processing of your image should be kept to a minimum - nothing that couldn't be done in a wet darkroom fifty years ago. You may post your image any size within forum rules.

 

The thread will be open for postings but NOT for voting to allow all entries to be posted before voting starts. Your entries are not anonymous; feel free to post camera, lens and film details. 

 

Voting will then be opened. Votes may then be cast on the following basis:

 

Three points for best, two points for second and one point for third.

 

Voting runs for two weeks. One vote per member, no voting for your own image.

 

The winner gets the right to set the theme for the next Barnack Challenge.

Als der Gewinner der letzten Barnack Challenge, (Autoportrait / Selbstportrait) moechte ich hiermit das Thema fuer die naechste Challenge bekanntgeben: "Tones, Tones, Tones!" (Töne, Töne, Töne!).

Zur Erinnerung hier nochmal die Regeln:

 

Die Barnack Challenge findet vier mal im Jahr statt.

 

Jedes Leica User Forum Mitglied ist Teilnahmeberechtigt.

 

Zur Teilnahme muessen Sie einen Film belichten, wobei die Photos dem gestellten Thema entsprechen sollten und innerhalb der angegebenen Zeit enstanden sein muessen. Die Photos muessen mit einer Schraubleica oder einer fruehen Leica mit fest eingebautem Objektive entstanden sein. Alle Objektive mit Schraubanschluss unabhaengig vom Alter oder Hersteller koennen verwendet werden. 

Waehlen Sie das Photo das Ihrer Meinung nach am besten dem gestellten Thema entspricht und stellen Sie es in den entsprechenden Thread im Barnack Challenge Subforum. Die Bilder sollten nur minimal am Computer manipuliert werden (Post-processing) - nur solche Manipulationen sind zugestanden die auch in einer Dunkelkammer vor 50 Jahren moeglich waren. Sie koennen Ihr Photo in jeder den Forumsregeln entsprechenden Groesse einstellen. 

 

Das Abstimmen beginnt nachdem alle Beitraege in einem gegebenen Zeitraum eingestellt sind. Ihre Bilder sind nicht anonym, und sie koennen auch gerne den verwendeten Kameratyp, Objektiv und Film angeben. 

 

Nachdem der Zeitraum zum Hochladen der Bilder abgelaufen ist beginnt die Abstimmung. Jedes Forumsmitglied das abstimmt muss dreimal Punkte verteilen:

Drei Punkte fuer das beste Bild

Zwei Punkte fuer das zweitbeste Bild

Einen Punkt fuer das drittbeste Bild

 

Jedes Forumsmitglied kann einmal abstimmen, darf jedoch nicht fuer den eigenen Beitrag stimmen. 

 

Der Gewinner bestimmt das Thema fuer die folgende Barnack Challenge.

Unfortunately, I do not have access to start a new thread in that sub forum. I think only Andreas, the forum owner can do that. I think the usual practice is for him to move it there after it is closed, because it is an Archive.

 

I have posted links in four different threads as follows:

Barnack's Bar

Film Forum

Events & Meetings

Collectors & Historica.

I am sure it‘s no Archive.

 

I thought all moderators could open a new thread there, though I might be wrong.

 

Perhaps Leon_B. could help in the absence of Andreas.

Sadly enough, you are wrong.

Dr No, I have sent a report asking for a German speaking mod to assist with your request. I am unaware of previous setting up procedure. Is there a set of rules somewhere?

      Some months back I supported a Kickstarter effort to produce a tiny light meter for old cameras, to be made in Canada. After some delays due to COVID, the first production is finished, and I received my unit today. It is easily the smallest and lightest light meter I've seen. The body is 3-D printed, but seems good quality. The control buttons are also tiny, but easier to use than I expected. Nice clear LCD display on the back. Works in either Aperture or Shutter priority. It calibrated easily to my Luna-Lux SBC and seems very accurate.
      Here it is on a IIIf, where it works fine, although is very close to the shutter speed dial. On a model III or II it is too close, so the dial can't be lifted to set the speed.
      Otherwise it is worth a look. The designer called the company REVENI LABS.

      Hopefully nobody minds me asking an ignorant question...
      I have an LTM Elmar 50mm f/2.8 and, reading the Ken Rockwell review, he recommends a Yellow #022 39mm filter for b&w photography with that lens.  However, what I am really unsure about is how the filters fit to my lens and, if I am not to buy an authentic Leitz/Leica filter, what I need to look for on eBay, etc.  I don't see any thread inside the collapsible lens so I am guessing that the filters either fit over the lens like the lens cap or somehow grip onto the inside of the lens.  
      Grateful for any insights plus suggestions re where I can get them!

      I was waiting for the next Challenge to start - seems I have to start it as well as pick the subject, as I was the last winner.
      After "lines" I thought "curves" could be next.
      Looking at previous challenges it appears that about 3 weeks to take the picture is about right, then 3 weeks to develop/print/scan/load up, followed by 3 weeks to vote;
      So if we start now..
      Take your "curves" picture from 7 November to 30 November.
      Process and post them by Christmas Eve, 24 December.
      Vote from Christmas Day 25 December to 13 January.
      The rules of the challenge are now on the front page of the Forum, but basically you must use a screw thread Leica camera, anything from a UR (replica) through a 1a to a 111g. The lens does not have to have come out of the Wetzlar workshop, but I think it would be nice if both body and lens came off the workbench before 1936 so that you could imagine that Barnack himself had picked them up to check them before they were packed up and sent out.

      What adapters can be reliably used on the M10 for e.g. a classic LTM Elmar 50 mm in your experience?
      In older threads (pre M10), the three most widely recommended were
      - Original Leitz (50mm seems to be a bit scarce on the market)
      - Voigtländer
      - CameraQuest/ Rayqual (seem unavailable in Europe)
       
      The M10 has been reported to be more finicky with regard to 6 bit coding. Is it also more of a diva with regard to adapters?
       
      I have read the caveats about collapsing; now I am looking out for an adapter...
       
      Thanks,
      Mathias
