Ok, here it is!
The first photo that is done :)
I shot Mark Groen on the Haarlemmerdijk in amsterdam with my new baby "Canonet" - first time ever with film, developed and scanned with the imacon with help from Hyung & Ludwig :)
I ran into mark when i was going to get some more film, because i only got one film at the store where i got the camera and said, im going to shoot you ;)
TMAX400 Black & White film
like the grain, a great smile from your model, although on a cloudy day you could easily have gone for a wider aperture like 4 or so, a higher shutter speed and maybe would have gotten far less motion blur ;)
VERY! i cant wait, saturday ill have a fashionshoot with two models (real ones from an agency hihihi) shooting outside, with color film :)
lightmeter with me (no flashes or other lightsources that use electric power)
instead of hot or flashlight i will have two mega lighttorches with a white sheet of paper in front of them that we will aim at the models faces...
cant wait, been busy with organising for over a month...
I really believe you being nervous, hehe. And as on any other media, there is no excuses, have a look at Jim Rakete's last book, all done with a vintage cam on large size film, shutter speed 1/8 of a second.... If you wouldn't be told, you wouldn't know..... :))
well, one really important thing about rangefinders and why they used to be so popular is size and weight. What a street photographer did and still does when using a rangefinder, is to go out on the street, measure the light, set the camera dof-range from, let's say 10 feet to infinite, adjust the shutter speed to it and take pictures.... the dof range is marked on the lens, that's basically it. wide angle lenses help, that is why the 28mm is so famous on a rangefinder.... don't move up too close to the motif and you'll be set well. Nothing really more to say :)
