Singing Songs and other portraits


These were (mostly) in the camera before we left, and developed yesterday.

Eastman Double-X on the Olympus Zuiko 85mm f/2.

(Hard to focus on the SLR, despite being only f/2!)

I think my eyes are going…

      Thanks very much Peter…

      Plenty of discards here; didn’t show you the bad ones!!

      (Amazing how much more precise that stupid, ancient rangefinder is!!)



      (Oh yeah: Filmic film???)

    You know you have a lot of fast glass when f/2 becomes “slow” 🙂

    What are you shooting the Double-X at? I’m finding that I get much better negatives when shooting at 400 compared to 250. Just curious

    (Not slow…just unexpectedly shallow!!)

    I’m shooting my Eastman at 200 routinely…but I’ll try the 400.

      Maybe my developing is just more consistent as of late, I don’t really know. D-76/14 min/EI 400 seems to be the sweet spot for me. But I can’t argue with your results!
