Slapped the filters on the old Nikon at the weekend, I do like the old milky long exposures. A 39 second exposure above and 52 seconds below, random times that come with not putting a watch on.
Been at this for ages and just cannot get a decent scan of this negative, resorted to a shot from the DSLR of it.
It’s been battered all over Lightroom and Silver Efex and now I’ve given up on it. Maybe see how it looks the next time I do a darkroom setup.
I think that’s my 120 film used up now and maybe call this the last efforts with the Lubitel. I’ll give the 120 another go if I get the finger out and loosen off the mechanics of the Isolette.
Some shots taken on the Lubitel last weekend. A wee entry level medium format camera which is an absolute nightmare to try and focus, I don’t think you can focus it just fire off a shot and hope for the best. Having said that mini BP did take a decent snap of your humble photographer.
This might be the last run for this wee Eastern Bloc camera it just seems to be a waste of money buying film when the thing is so difficult to focus. I think I’ll relegate this to ornament and sometimes used when experimenting with double exposures and the like. A nice wee start to the world of film and it without it I’d have never attempted to develop film and I’m now an expert in that field…….ok competent in that field.
I’m hoping the weekend brings out a new skill. If it does you’ll see it here if it doesn’t you’ll hear the screams!
A wee run up the coast today to Stonehaven to see Dunnottar Castle on the rocks, surprised by how busy it was.
I was also surprised to see my surname in a memorial to the Covenanters, it’s rare to see it spelt the way we spell it.
The shot above is obviously not the castle but I thought a long exposure over the field could look pretty cool, the castle to follow.
