    Very nice!

    Well, it was Halloween this weekend. It took me until the night before to realize that the perfect costume would be a 1940's press photographer. After all, how many people have a real working Speed Graphic and flashbulbs with which to do that? It was my first time using bulbs; somebody should have told me they smell like toasted marshmallows!



    Speed Graphic, Optar 135 @ f32 (those bulbs are powerful!), expired Polaroid 690

    I probably could have sharpened the full size version a bit. Anyway, I'll have more to show once I scan them.

    Hah, yeah. I'm too old for that shit.

    I scanned the rest from that night. Here's three, the rest on flickr.







    The last two were taken with a regular bounced Metz instead of the bulbs (saved those for 160nc shots). Interesting differences. Colors, for one. But also, 1/30th and f32 vs. 1/100th and f5.6. Yeah, ironically, my press lens is the only lens I have that doesn't have 'M' sync.
