These were shot on the Mamiya 1000S using the 80/1.9 lens, with the #1 Extension ring.  The DOF is about 1/10 of a millimeter wide open–Most of these were shot at f/2.8 as a result.

This is Rollei 400S developed in D76.

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.
