As usual I have been procrastinating. I chose a subject and did a test shot last week with my iPhone camera. I like the basic idea but not the background in the test picture. And I haven't decided on the film to use. I have a roll of a new film to me, Foma 400, in the IIIf so I will probably take the picture with that and then reload with a film I am more familiar with, in case I don't like the result.

Hi and welcome remdude. Take multiples to select from, but only one may be submitted for the competition. Later, there may be a thread for 'outtakes' where we sometimes post our optional shots, just for fun.

Tomorrow, now that I am ambulatory again, I plan to shoot a series of four options I am thinking of, but I have in my mind one main contender, subject to shooting it.

There are two dumb things a RF film camera user can do.

1. Leave the lens cap on.

2.Forget to check that the film is advancing properly after loading.

Last Friday, I shot a roll of film covering seven alternatives for entering the Barnack Challenge. Very pleased with my choices. Upon unloading the film I discovered I had committed dumb rule # 2! The film had not advanced.

Now, being Sunday, is my last chance to at least in part, to retrace my steps and pick up a suitable shot. I hate re-shoots. Such a waste of time. Perhaps I will look for alternatives to my first shoot. Could be more fun.

Thanks Charles. I am feeling improved. Getting impatient with my recovery.

Had a good day on Sunday. Found plenty of options for the Challenge. Finally edited down to one. Ready to post when the posting thread is open.
