Bought Fujicolour Pro Pro 400 H today, £18.99 for a 5 pack. Be interesting to see how it comes out. Damn camera bag is so packed that the shutter went off when I was taking it out. THAT'S A COSTLY HANDLING.
[QUOTE=H4Z3Y;33502568]not a big fan of those shots tbh, (what looks to be) awkwardly crouching in a corner up against a backdrop doesn't have that much appeal.Another thing with the leaf shutters is that by design, they naturally vignette a fuck-ton (in the opening and closing movements the center is always the first to be opened and last to be closed, while the inverse is true for the edges).[/QUOTE] I got the shots I wanted out of the lot but I agree a lot of her posing was rather stale, but that's to be expected a bit with someone who's not used to a studio environment also a guy walked into the photolab today with a Mamiya rb67 he just bought, which was awesome to see but he was very 'that guy' about it and that made me sad. Kept bragging about how he was planning on buying a digital back and that they're "not that expensive" when used buying a car isn't 'that expensive' either
I just bought a Yashica Mat MXV. Going to be my first medium format camera!
scanned in my favorite shot from that last set, and realized how terrible my office 4-in-1 scanner printer thing is. contrasted out the ass and the highlights are all blown... like, she's missing a leg [t]http://img412.imageshack.us/img412/4342/screenshot2011113015422.png[/t]

I just got an email from the antique store where I was going to buy that Yashica TLR camera from. I asked them if they could check if it was in good working order but they really don't have any clue about cameras. How can I get this guy without any knowledge of TLR's to find out for me if it is in a good state?
i think you are going to have to go check it yourself honestly.
Got some film for a school project, but I don't know what iso it is. It's either 100 or 400, and if anyone could tell from this picture which one it is, please tell me. Thanks.

let me use my molecular vision to find out
put it at 100 to be safe, better to overexpose than underexpose.
[QUOTE=Trogdon;33522502]i think you are going to have to go check it yourself honestly.[/QUOTE] Yeah ofcourse that would be easiest way, but I ain't traveling halfway across country for a camera like that
oh i didn't realize it was that far. honestly it would be better to pass it up if you aren't certain, depending on the price
[QUOTE=Trogdon;33526309]oh i didn't realize it was that far. honestly it would be better to pass it up if you aren't certain, depending on the price[/QUOTE] it was 30 euros :)
haha hmm, then it might be worth it to pick up. you could probably flip it for more than that regardless.

it drives me crazy when people don't put what type of film and lens they use on flickr! I mean look at this beauty of a photo. [IMG]http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5250/5239720865_1d933110c1_b.jpg[/IMG] [url]http://www.flickr.com/photos/laurenmax/5239720865/[/url] WATER YOU USING

[QUOTE=DoubleDD;33541496]heh[/QUOTE] to explain for anyone who didn't quite follow my meaning, if you use minimal equipment, the simplicity and depth of your final image can be ruined when you see something like the above followed by "Canon Powershot" and "Photoshop 6.0" because you start thinking about how on earth they managed to do all of that editing with an old bridge camera, then the image becomes less about how nice the picture looks, and more about "holy cow I can't do this with my big SLR how do you even do this with a point and click oh god there must be so much photoshopping tell me your secrets you fool"

[QUOTE=H4Z3Y;33542818]my guess would be portra with some medium format camera, probably something like a 100mm 2.8 lens[/QUOTE] And delicious lighting conditions. How can you tell it's medium format? Having never used it before i wouldn't be able to tell straight off from the photo.
I just got my Yashica Mat MXV. It looks okay, the sides are pretty worn out but mechanically it seems in good shape. The shutter times seem good and the lenses don't have fungus. Now to buy some film for it!

Right, a while ago I bought a Zenit 12XP. It was in rather bad condition, but came with some odd items. in total it came to £18 with P&P. Some of the items I decided to sell such as a cartridge of 126 Film a roll of 127 Film and 2 rolls of 110 film. So far that I've sold on ebay 126 film for £18 127 film for £3 1 of the 110 rolls for £0.99 so thats a profit.

i'm thinking if i had the capital to buy lots of film and sell it in small quantities to facepunchers at low prices i would do it
