There's this one where the bird took off and I snapped as I was following it.






Walked out of a cool dry house into a warm humid yard, lens fogged over.

Hello Huss

When I developed the roll I thought it was a waste so I just scanned and saved the photos and forgot about them.

I was going back through my files and came across this shot and really took a look at it full screen and I stood back and thought not that bad.

I guess my tastes have evolved and the grain doesn't bother me as much as it used too.

As far as composition I could have taken more time to position the pole a little better but I was just shooting a roll of expired 3200 that I had in the fridge for 10-15 years as I was just getting back to photography and just got the RC35 rangefinder so I was just burning film.

Any comments/criticism is appreciated

Don

I really liked Polaroid Type 55, and was bummed when it was discontinued. I was excited when New55 attempted to reproduce a positive/negative peel-apart film, so joined the Kickstarter campaign. When I got that first batch, it was, shall we say, a bit problematic, and many of my shots had little or no usable image. The failed chemical pods in this one (admittedly, it was expired film by the time I tried this shot, as the first batch had a very short shelf life) turned out to be quite interesting:

Alstroemeria. Ebony 45SU. Rodenstock Imagon 250mm lens. H7.7, 1/2" exposure. Yes, I was masochistic enough to mix a soft focus lens with an unreliable film!

For what it's worth, most of the folks behind New55 are still working on the project, under a different name: https://famousformat.com/category/new55-pn/

I'm interested enough to keep an eye on it, but want to wait until they work out a few more problems before I buy some. Actual Type 55 was really quite reliable and gave really nice negatives.

I didn't realize that I had shot a few frames and rewound the film a year previously. Usually I write something on the cartridge. For some reason I didn't, so I thought it was an untouched roll. I really liked the way this one came out:


This one has mistakes on all sides. To start with it's crooked:

What happens when you accidentally hit the shutter button when using a 50mm f1.2 lens before you have focused it? This! (I think its called making a virtue out of a necessity).

Excellent Peter!

I thought the statue of William IV on the gate at the Royal William Yard looked good with the Sun behind just visible through the clouds. A light leak that I hadn't seen before on my Leica R7 turned it into something out of Ghostbusters.

Nice! How did you get a light leak on the R7?

Light seals had gone around the film window. A nice big source of light. Now I've fitted new seals I can't see the film capsule.

Nice. To me it's an impressionist beach scene.

OK, I'll play. I've used a FUJI GA645 with over three dozen rolls, so that's like 576 photos and I finally got one that missed focus! You're supposed to keep an eye on the automatic focus meter in the viewfinder to make sure you have the distance right.





But to be fair I was shooting into a mirror so it must have thrown the meter off!

Leica M6...rushed to load film, didn't catch, and got 1 frame on the roll from a wedding lantern release at the end of the evening. Favorite shot of the day




A very out of focus 5x7 wet plate collodion image I made with my ex-girlfriend. I really love how it came out, despite being immensely blurry...

Leica M3, 7A 50 1.1, Silberra 50.

Somehow the lab managed to poke two big holes directly onto the negative. This was the last shot on the roll and I think that the tech "in charge" must have used the one shot I was waiting for to weigh down the film strip?

But, when I saw the damage I thought why not see how it comes out? And I like it!

Paper negative. Forgot to flip the dark slide to 'exposed' after the first shot.

This was. I took my then new to me Leica R7 mit motor drive to a vintage car meet. Unknown to me I'd set the drive to shutter advance only, and being a dimwit until at least 5 coffees have entered the system, didn't notice the lack of actual frame advance. The kitchen windows are from me trying to figure out the problem.
