    Looking good Chris. Are you guessing the exposures in most shots or using a light meter?

    I imagine it'll feel quite odd at first shooting a rangefinder after shooting slr's for many years.
     
  5. It appears that you're having fun! I'm sitting on the fence right now about getting a rangefinder. Not that I don't want one but about spending the bucks! I guess I'll do it vicariously watching you enjoy your new toy.:biggrin:

    Thanks Chris! I'm guessing 80% of the time, and metering with the Gossen for tricky shots. Of the ones above, I metered only the last one.

    (ps, I had a range finder before.)

    You mean it's darker? Exposure is important to me, especially because I like to use and control grain. So I'm always looking for further understanding.

    In #5 (through the door) I looked in the room and noticed the ceiling was dark, so I pointed the meter at the ceiling and then took 2 stops of exposure off that reading to make it a very dark gray (for iso 400 nutrix.)

    In numbers 3 and 4, I know skin looks right with 1/8 second at f/2 in a dark room under a 100 watt bulb at iso 400. So that's what I did for those.

    Do 3 and 4 need more exposure to make them lighter, or less? 4 is dumb, and reminds me of the statement that you can tell if the subject blinks during the exposure when using a range-finder. Fat lot of good that did me here! But 3 is the beginning of a series of dogs being themselves. I just went through Erwitt's Woof.
