Face-to-Face

Face-to-face

This was the last shot I took on the Mamiya 645.

…A nice “just woke up from a little nap” memory.

For now it has been replaced, but I kept the lens to put away.

My rule now is to never sell good character glass (especially when there are so many different types of adapters these days!)

Under Her Majesty’s careful guidance, the Velvia experimentation continues.

This is Roll #4.  The manufacturer recommends five rolls of 120 total on the one pint kit ($24 CAD–cheaper than having it lab developed!) so we’ll see how the next one turns out.

Posts, that is!

And this is self-developed Velvia 100 shot on the Mamiya 645.

(To shoot it these days, you pretty much have to develop it yourself).

Colors that will literally punch you in the spleen!!

😉

Some may find these too oversaturated…it is no wonder Velvia is legendary for its color.

Here’s a small selection…I hope you enjoy.

The Recital – A Study

Recital-1

All different dates, times, and places…but it happened to come together.

First two are M9/Noct, third Mamiya, fourth GF670.

Last one is actually pushed to 1600 in camera.

(The colors look good on my computer, but man, do they ever look bad on my iPhone).

A Duo of Producers

She finally agreed to model for me…

1/24s on Portra 400 (ISO 800 @ f/1.9).  The other was shot on the M9 (ISO 800 @f/1).

One of them was converted to B&W–it shouldn’t be hard to tell which.

Oh…and while I have you: someone is having a birthday today!

(…And it shouldn’t be hard to tell exactly who).

Happy Birthday Sweetheart!
