Comments/Crits welcome, if any.
Loved your series Daniel! The tones are right on key!
Those were the results of some free time on a sat eve, which is usually out of the ordinary.
Beautiful work!!! The ambient lighting adds a strong mood to the shots. I took out my Nikon with a 50 1.4 his weekend I can't wait to see the results. Needless to say it is a beautiful piece of glass.
Thanks Craig. Do you have your own dark room?
I would say 50mm is the KING of all lenses!! It is not often given due respect!
No darkroom on this end. But I have access to a couple. In this instance (and most) I shot slide film. I shoot mostly digi these days. As I have mentioned the 90 second photo lab is very liberating for me.
I agree that the 50 gets little or no credit these days. not to mention the 1.4 aperture. Manufacturing a 1.4 takes some serious engineering. I do not think the "circle of confusion" comes into play when recording with a CCD. So there is that. Plus I think people generally lost interest in paying for expensive glass (I am definitely going to get in trouble for that little statement). By the way, Leica's Leitz makes a 1.0 I am not sure if it is 50mm.
Whats slide film?
That is not even funny. Dare I say Kodachrome 64?
Cool shots Dan, i took the liberty to see the rest of the albuns, I like the way you look at things :thumbsup:
Pardon my ignorance... newbie here
and thx Lula!
Ooops I thought you were kidding. Transparency I think is the proper term. It produces an unbeatable positive (as opposed to negative) image. Generally identified with "chrome" as the suffix Extachrome, Fujichrome etc. The film is a little unforgiving exposure wise, but like I said the results are nothing short of beautiful. Dare I say digi still can not touch it. I give it about a year. Maybe 5 years.
I suggest shooting a couple of rolls immediately. Save you pennies because the film and developing is a little pricey. Let alone making prints.
Another dumb query... is it a 35mm film?
Separate names with a comma.
