heh, nothing goes right these days. whatever. i still have some rc-paper and developer left… so i went to the darkroom.
i printed some old negs – trix at iso3200, 35/1,4 nikkor at 1,4. the contrast of the wide-open 35 cron is poor at best compared to the 35 cron. printing leica negs is definitely easier.

on a side-note, i really like the tones i get with tmax400 at iso400 (xtol 1:1) – especially the mid-tones and whites look way better than trix. smoother than neopan400.

so, starting with the “old” frames: my favorite bar-keeper had his last day… way too many shots of voddy and stella in way too little time. literally everyone was a wasted piece of shit at the end of the night.

last frame. mind the sweet voddy-focus.

some more prints (roll of tmax400):

getting started.

tmax400 at iso3200

almost no light at all… the cron did an amazing job. distant friend of mine – met him on the street.

apx100 (nikkor 35/1,4)

supposed to be added to the devart self-gallery


so much for today – good night.

    Hahaha, I especially like the shot with the back turned to you.
    Pwoohee… I like blogs. It’s nice to see text and photos intertwined like that.

    bitchin tones.. nice and solid.. none of that pussy shit ;)

    looks like your getting used to the focusing.. it comes in time.

    start memorizing/recognizing your minimum distance and go from there. you’re a people shooter so its nice to just pick up and shoot close and know you’re at the minimum distance.

    Lovely blog in general, stories get so much better with the right pictures.

    I noticed a type of tobacco in one of the shots: “Van Nelle”. I didn’t know the Dutch exported that, good quality rollies.

    I really like the last photo… Or at least, this version… i saw it in DA, and left a comment saying that it was too bright in my opinion, but here is perfect! oh… and i like the blog “design”… i’ll keep an eye on it…
