  10. We're falling behind! Here's one for Monday 21st. Taken to demonstrate the tonal range of the Bergger Pancro 4000 film when developed in PMK Pyro. Camera was the Mamiya 645 1000s with a 55-110mm Mamiya Sekor f/4.5 Lens.


  11. That Bergger is looking very nice. . guess I will haul out my 135-36 at the races. . . Is that your tri-bander in the background? . N7MOB here. Bill
  12. No, it 's the property of an old bloke downtown, going on 90 and still a ham radio enthusiast, apparently. You might find the Pancro 400 just a tad gritty in the 35mm format...

    There's a bigger version here: Zones
  13. For the 22 nd.

  14. Looks like we have an opening for the 23rd.
    Partial solar eclipse, Minolta SRT 101, Tamron 500 f8 reflex, solar filter and Tri-X, cropped
  15. Hires Root Beer, Georgetown (Seattle). Pentax MX, 50mm f/1.7, Velvia 50. There's nothing like it when Velvia knocks out the color.

  16. The silky smoothness you always seem to get out of every camera/film combination is just amazing. I'm curious, though. I don't see anything in this one that I'd consider Zone 10 (pure white in the zone system I'm familiar with). Am I just not seeing it?
  17. Possibly there's nothing pure white in the location. The picket fence was cream, as was the shed door. Possibly the clouds were the closest to white, but who would trust a cloud? I'm actually not a follower of the Zone System in any slavish sense; I just try to preserve detail in every area of the image, including white.

  18. I'm not a fan of blindly following any system of rules, either. Perhaps I read too much into the title. I also don't have any darkroom skills, so I can only print from digital, and I find it necessary to "crush" the blacks and whites a bit in order to get any snap out of my prints. That could mean we have different priorities. Don't misunderstand, though. I wish I could produce the results you produce.
  19. Sunset, with wolves howling a mile away. Nikon FE or FM2n (I forget which), 50mm f/1.8, probably Provia 100.
