expecting to fly

I am changing sequence of events a bit… normally another shoot should be coming now, but I still have some colour film at Richard’s Photo Lab to be developed and scanned (first time for me – I am very curious about the results!). It was very scary sending the film off with the uncertainty if it would arrive. I received the email from RPL last Friday night (afternoon in LA) that my film has arrived – I was dancing ūüôā

…because of that I will post them together with the other shots from the session whenever I have the scans back… this is one shoot thereafter with my ¬†favorite black model …. she is so¬†beautiful and so nice,¬†it is a real pleasure shooting with her… these are as well the first pics with my new favorite camera, a Plaubel Makina 67… 6×7 was the last “main” format I was not using ….and after seeing a good offer, I decided to change that. I love this camera – it looks a bit awkward, but works like a dream, it folds to a relative small size, is easy to operate and is safely¬†handhold-able¬† down to 1/15th… even 1/8th if you concentrate… the amazing 2.8/80 lens and the large negative format do the rest. I was amazed by the tones. I developed the negatives in a rotary processor for 5 minutes in HC110 (B) and they looked perfect right from the scanner… film was Kodak Tri-x. ¬†I used as well the Nikon FM3A with Tri-X and Polaroid 180 camera with Fuji FP100c and Polaroid Sepia Film…. the polaroids are at the end as you will notice.

Jan, what’s the closest distance the Makina can focus?

Lovely work Jan! I love the colors you got from the Polaroid 180 + Fuji Film.

Great series. Those pictures show beauty with emotion. Got the website wrong in first post.

Ancora bravo, bravo!!!! Andrea

Great tones! I love pic 11… fantastic bw!

Fantastic tones in these, Jan. Did you have to make any exposure adjustments with your light readings to compensate for the black skin?

Thanks – I was thinking about it – but I just metered as usual – maybe with a tendency to expose rather more than less… I am quite happy how it worked out.

From my knowledge, using a handheld meter(sekonic 358), you are measuring incident light, or ambient light on the subject. Not reflective, like a camera meter will read.

Using incident metering, light and dark skin expose correctly.

I prefer using the sekonic meter. Perfect exposure every time.

How are others metering?

Favulous Session ¬° Really inspirational for me ¬° I love your natural light work on film

Wunderbar! Ich freue mich schon jetzt auf die Outdooraufnahmen!
