Gorgeous photograph Vieri

 

Thank you very much Mark, glad you enjoyed it!

 

Fine picture.

 

Apropos of workshops, can you (and how do you) accommodate film users?

 

 

Thank you very much Michael, glad you liked it. Apropos the Workshops, I most definitely accommodate film users, I only wish there were more

What do you shoot, exactly? 

 

Best regards,

Hi Vieri,

 

Thanks for your response. I have been pretty much exclusively using Ildord XP1 Xp2 and XP2 Super in an M2 and M3 (variety of lenses) roughly since they were introduced. I love them - XP2 Super is a terrific balance between speed, tonality, sharpness, exposure forgiveness and all other technical stuff. And it can also be successfully developed in HC-110. And I think the results are simply beautiful. I could go on, but won't.

 

To be honest, I am (probably) not a candidate for your workshops, but I like your work and I suspect you provide a great experience.

 

Thanks again.

 

M.

Hi Michael,

 

I was a Pan F Plus 50 lover, in the Ilford camp, both 35mm and 120

But, my weapon of choice for 35mm street and portrait was Kodak Double-X, 200 iso, movie stock but with amazing tones especially when developed in 510-Pyro which is what I used for pretty much everything - still do, actually, when I use film. I still have a M2, loaded now with Tri-X (I stopped finding Double-X a few years ago...), but I don't use it nearly as much as I'd love to. Too much work, too little time for play, I should create a B&W film project to get out there with my film cameras more!

 

About the WS, if you love landscape photography you are welcome to join us - that's pretty much the only requirement. I'll PM you for more info, I wouldn't want to turn this into a WS thread

 

Best regards,

 

Vieri

      Hello,
      Suggestions on long exposure photography using the Leica Q 49mm. Heliopan 49mm Variable Gray ND Filter and  or, B+W 49mm XS-Pro Digital ND Vario MRC-Nano Filter.
      Does anyone have experience with either one of these filters, or any other recommendations? Thank you.

      I love Tuscany in every season, but especially so in the fall or spring, when mist can transform the landscape & the mood of your photos completely.

      I have often received FILCA brass cassettes along with older LTM Leicas in my collection. I had noticed that one of them had a roll of black and white film in it when I got it about 5 years ago, but I only got around to processing the film about a month ago. I had no idea what film was in the cassette, what 'ISO' it was and also what age it was. Taking the advice of a friend, I gave the roll 1 hour stand development in diluted D 76 and was pleasantly surprised to find that the roll contained about 21 images (the roll was never finished), most of which were in some way usable. The film was Perutz film of unknown speed. Here is the FILCA with some of the film still inside.

      Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content. Hallo Gast! Du willst die Bilder sehen? Einfach registrieren oder anmelden! The contents of the film were photographs taken in Switzerland and Northern Italy in the very early 1950s. Some of the images were fine, but some of them were grainy and/or suffered from light leaks. The light leaks occurred when I , and possibly others before me,  opened the cassette, not knowing that there was a roll of film inside. A woman and a man feature in the photographs and a dachshund also appears in some photos. The photos generally seem to indicate Switzerland and Italy in the early 1950s, particularly a light damaged photo of Banhofstrasse in Zurich which shows large American cars from the late 1940s functioning as taxis. The people may no longer be with us considering their ages at the time, but I would like to trace their families to unite them with the images
      The couple were driving a mid 1930s BMW 315 with a cabriolet body, possibly, by Weinmann. The registration plate seen in this photo is apparently from the American Zone in Bavaria, the suggestion that it was from Aschaffenberg is disputed. The location of this photo is at La Veduta on the Julier Pass in the Italian Speaking part of Switzerland.

      Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content. Hallo Gast! Du willst die Bilder sehen? Einfach registrieren oder anmelden! Some of the photos show Northern Italy such as this wonderful view of the Steamer Bisbino on Lake Como. A photograph of a narrow street leading to a church clock/bell tower identifies the location as Bellagio on Lake Como.

      Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content. Hallo Gast! Du willst die Bilder sehen? Einfach registrieren oder anmelden! I have been trying to remember which of my cameras the FILCA cassette came with. The cassette came either with a black and nickel III or a chrome IIIa or may have been used with another IIIa which I don't have. A box for FILCA cassettes belonging to that camera came with my IIIa. I have asked the Leica Archives for delivery details of my cameras, but nothing has emerged yet. They would , of course, only provide details of the dealers and not any details of the customers.
      Photos of the cameras and the couple and other views of Switzerland and Italy from the roll of film plus various pieces of information and technical considerations can be seen in this article here:

      The object here is to identify the couple and to unite their families with the images which have been missing for about 70 years. I might add that some of the photos are very good, but have suffered some ravages over time. Overall, though, the FILCA brass cassette did a mighty fine job protecting the film for anything up to 70 years.

      Sunrise at the Quiraing, a really enchanted place where trees can even grow horizontally, out of hillsides. An oldie from 2017, this is a 2 seconds long exposure taken on the Isle of Skye in Scotland with my then Leica SL, Voigtlander 15mm Super-Wide Heliar version III and Formatt-Hitech Firecrest filters.
