    Hi Mark,
    Very humbly, as constructive criticism that I’m hoping you are interested in hearing – my 2 cents:

    The exposures of the roll 1 shots look good and rich and have a great ‘feel’. I would not have guessed TriX because of the high key final on them.

    The roll 2 shots seems over by one stop or so and I’m seeing something funky with the back grounds….not just the bokeh but almost a hollow feel to them. Fumbling to explain it but my eyes don’t quite see the richness of roll 1. May have just been fast shutters, wide open and midday harsh sunlight not playing with the TriX nicely.

    All nice family moments – well captured in any case! Awaiting roll 3.

    Regards,
    Jason.

      Hi Jason,

      Thanks so much for your comments–you are very observant!

      I think there are two things going on here: 1) The are probably erring on the side of “over-exposed” as I needed an ND filter, and didn’t have one on me. It was Tri-X 400, but shot at an ISO of 200, with a shutter speed that was maxed out most of the time, and the aperture varied slightly. I definitely think an ND filter would have been of substantial benefit! 2) The out-of-focus rendering on the “Lens of Intrigue” (MS Optical Sonnetar 50mm f/1.1) is definitely a little “busy”–somewhat like the 50 Summarit f/1.5 or the Noct E60 f/1. I think this is particularly accentuated by the harsh sun, and the over-exposure.

      Anyway, great to have you by–please don’t be a stranger!

      All the best,
      -M.

    Hi Mark,

    I’d say exposure, lens and development (aside from film, scanning and composition) came together on this roll. Much more like Roll 1 with richness and feeling coming out and skin tones down in zone 5/6.

    …..And the weather is continuing to cooperate by the looks of it.

    Regards,
    Jason.
