Ok, this is gonna take some getting used to!

Cool stuff. It is great fun working with new pieces of gear and it sure looks like you are enjoying this one.
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.
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:
very cool .... i like the dog ... hahaha looks so tiny
It is a fun camera after all!
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.
I'll get back to you tomorrow. Way too much wine tonight
