    I got my 6x6 a couple weeks ago. Been shooting here and there with it, but this is the first time I got around to printing anything I shot with it. I shot three frames of this web, I moved the point of focus, and changed aperature. I spent about 3 hours in the dark room with it tonight playing with exposure and filter. Threw out everything save for 5 prints. Here is one of my favs from tonights printing....

    I had to scan it twice and merge the two images because I printed it 10x10 and my scanner is only 8 inches wide :D

    For those who care; this was shot with Ilford Delta 100 ISO, The camera is a Kiev battle tank. Shot was f2.8 @ 1/30th. Print was made with a 2 1/2 filter f11 for 36 seconds.

    An acceptable print was made at 21 seconds, but I wanted to make the background darker to it wasn't competing with the web for attention.
