  1. The one rescued frame from an RZ67 roll. I am thinking this makes an awesome flower camera. The bellows makes close focusing a snap. Need to try Velvia.

    Crop of same showing how much this film and camera captured despite my best efforts to ruin it. This frame was in horrible shape. Spent more than an hour repairing it digitally.

    Plus X at 125. Metered with a D200. Flash via Elinchrom BX400 and an XS Chimera soft box.

    BW flower images look great. especially with a black background. beautiful shot.
     
  3. Thanks Josef.

    Still a crying shame I messed up though. I would say the best shot of the roll was one of those completely destroyed.

    Whoa! That's one nice flower! It's a graceful composition, and the trifold symmetry is complex. I like that.
     
  5. Lovely - I'm astonished by the level of detail in the petals, great work.
     
  6. Thanks.

    Here is another one with some of the light leak damage left intact. Trying to turn lemons into lemonade.

    Or as Bob Ross said, a happy little accident. It looks like dragon's breath.
     
  8. Iris! the second, detail shot does it for me, as i see the softer (focused) tones, breaking-up in background. the petal detail is great on all of these.

    light leak

    The light leak works for you giving the foreground 3 dimentionality and adding depth to the entire photo.
    BTW, did I tell you how much I like these photos?
    Beautiful, thank you,
     
  11. Thank you very much.

    I am actually less thrilled. I expected more contrast in the petals than I got. And I don't know if that's the nature of this flower, or the film, or the light damage or how I developed the film, or how I scanned them, or...

    Do it Nancy!
     
  15. Nancy, this place is an EOF (equal opportunity forum). Break out some film and shoot away. We could definitely use some participation from the distaff side! :biggrin:
