Russell Military Museum Photo Trip

Pinhole Tryouts

I bought this pinhole body cap for my Pentax Spotmatic some time back, and I never tried it ...until now.  I know near nothing about this type of photography, so it was a fun learning experience.  I would recommend it to others.  I used Black Cat Extended Range Exposure guide and settings for f/179 pinhole, even though I was not 100% sure that was the whole size (whoever I bought it from on eBay did not advertise this).  I loaded the camera with Kodak Tmax 100 film, and developed it at home.  I think the results say something like "try some more".  And I think I will!

Malmo through the lens of Bronica SQ-A

Another set of photographs from my quick trip to Sweden.  These were taken with my Bronica SQ-A medium format camera.  Film was 400TX pushed to 800 - classic look!  I love the contrasty, film noire feel to some of the images.  Malmo is a great city to photograph, with interesting combination of modern and older architecture, bikes, churches and people.

Kodak 400TX, D76 1:1 and Bronica SQ-A

This is test.  This is only a test.  I purchased two rolls of 400TX in 120 medium format, and thought I give D76 a shot (generally, I use Ilford) diluted 1:1 for a little extra kick.  I wanted to see how much sharpness I could get out of this combination, while still not having too much grain (I like some).  I shot in bright sun at 11am, for some nice contrast, in snow.  Most exposures were 1/250sec f/11 for sun, or about f/5.6 for images with indirect light / shadows.  I also wanted to see what kind of sharpness I could get with Zenzanon 80mm f/2.8 lens.  Overall, I think the experience was successful, and I may do this again.  Comments welcome.
