ABSTRACT or SPECIALTY FILMS/CAMERA DAY -- Flag at the Post Office/Pushed T-Max


Blogger micki said...

Posting an hour or two early today, as we’re off to Busch Gardens for a few hours. We’ll get there right as they open and leave before it gets too hot. Since we’re just a short drive away, we do this every couple of weeks in the summer instead of trying to cram everything into one day. So, if you’re here looking for Thursday’s Critter shot, you’ll have to go into the June archives. But, it’s just a duck.

Tore, I saved the legs for you. I’ll make soup when you come to visit some day.

Posting this shot to help start off the long holiday weekend here in the States. If you Americans don’t make it over for the next few days, have a happy Fourth!! This is from my pushed roll of T-Max 400. Hopefully picking up a roll of 3200 today and my first roll of Holga shots. Sent a roll of 1600 and two more 120s from the Holga off to a mail order lab. Hope to get those back any day.

Camera - Minolta Maxxum 7000
Film - Kodak T-Max ISO 400 pushed to 3200
Shutter Speed - 1/1000
Aperture Setting - f-16 Aperture Mode
Lens - Sigma 70-300mm @ 300mm
Scanning Method - My scan from my cheap little hp officejet 5510v all-in-one copy/scanner/faxer/printer

Things I’m Thankful to Cliff For… Camping trips to Pennsylvania every July!

Such a warm glow of pride from that pushed T-max, I feel it might break out into color any second. Enjoy.

This photo has a great "soft" feel to it. I like the composition as well. Enjoy Busch Gardens.

This is a great shot. Looks almost like something out of a history book. Love it!

Hi Micki, you've got a nice old b&w picture here. Just a suggestion, you might consider changing the column widths a little so you could post your pictures bigger?

Looks like a great old building for photos. Great b&w work!

Perfect subject to kick off the holiday weekend!
