It’s the weekend, make it a good one. Do lots of shooting, lots of playing. Listen to the music too loud and forget about the chores. And eat something you shouldn’t. The girls and I LOVE Hardee’s double cheeseburgers, two for $3.00. Although I didn’t wait until the weekend for this burger. I shot this on a Wednesday afternoon after picking up the oldest two from music lessons. My husband had class that night so I wasn’t cooking. We picked up burgers and I took a bunch of pictures through town with my pushed roll of T-max 400. I was hoping for some graininess, but those little t-max grains are just two fine…even when pushed to 3200. There was no graininess what-so-ever on any of the images. Good to know if I need the speed, although it cost a lot to have developed. Check out the camera settings on this shot, and it was shot from inside the dim van on a cloudy afternoon.

Camera - Minolta Maxxum 7000
Film - Kodak T-Max ISO 400 pushed to 3200
Shutter Speed - 1/1000
Aperture Setting - f-19 Program Mode
Lens - Minolta 50mm macro lens
Scanning Method - My scan from my cheap little hp officejet 5510v all-in-one copy/scanner/faxer/printer

I haven't had a burger since about 1989, but I can definitely appreciate the phenomenon :-) Try some Fuji Neopan 1600 - some tasty grain possibilities there, plus it's also rated to push to 3200 if you want. I know of several film shooters who have gotten nice high contrast and grain using that stock.

Interesting shot. Ilike the framing a lot.

I think since it's just me and my youngest for the weekend, I will take him out for burgers one night.

There is only one place in my town where I get a burger from time to time. He makes the best. Saturday....I think I must have one. I love shots like this. Moments in a day. P.S. Yesterday it said from anonymous, so hopefully it won't today.

I kind of agree with tore, pretty sixties. Funny you complain about the grain, in fact you don´t see it much but my first reaction was to close-examine it looking for grain. So even if it didn´t come out and it turned out to be expensive, it is implicit in the mood, it looks old, like some long gone forgotten night at the diner's, and all thanks to the film. Still on time to add a lovely grain with PS, hey just joking (that´s way too easy)

Well Micki. It seems you have jiggled a few memories of burgers with this shot. I like the framing but for me, the photo makes the burger look old and totally unappertising! :-)

Thanks for the wishes for the weekend. I think i'm riding on my bike while this fine weather.
May i ask you: "Do you develop your rolls yourself?" I red you talked about developing cost.
It's very easy to do it.
Have a good weekend too, and don't eat too much cheeseburgers Micki
