Goin’ on a trip…hopefully these should tide you over for a bit.
Don’t ask me what film, lens, or camera…because I just don’t know.
If you’re shooting a waist-level finder on a medium format camera (well, any SLR really…) and you can’t seem to get “crisp” shots when they appear in focus, consider the possibility that the mirror supports may have deteriorated, or your focusing screen is malpositioned.
In my case, the focusing screen was about a millimeter too low (about 1/32 of an inch, if you still speak “ancient”) and everything was slightly front-focused.
This is Tri-X 400 pushed to ISO 1200 and developed in D76.
(Oh and congrats to Jordan and the Kansas City Chiefs…who apparently aren’t in Kansas anymore.)
…because yesterday, it saved his.
…He was being a housebound teenager of 13–A jerk to everyone around him for no particular reason, other than the fact that he wasn’t getting his way.
So I finally put a camera in his hand, and out we went.
These are my photos, not his…because he didn’t finish his roll…
But fortunately we both came out the better for it.
