    nikon S2, tri-x, 50mm, f/1.4, 1/125
    photographed back in january at mickies diner, i just now scanned the print.

    what do you think? i know the scan is poor but i can't afford a film scanner right now. and i know my highlights are blown but it takes time to learn how to meter with one's brain.

    Oh that's very cool Joe! S2 - how do you like it?

    In film we usually call 'blown highlights', white.
     
  3. thanks :) 
    i love the s2. it is such a great little camera. small and compact but kinda heavy which is nice. its as close to a leica i can get for the moment :mad: 

    interesting, i've heard of both being generally accepted. blown simply meaning no detail, and highlight meaning bright area. i guess white is applicable as well. tomato tomoto.

    In digital it is called a blown highlight. I see nothing wrong with for my b/w film OR digital work. I call it "the effects of contrast".

    In color that mentality is completely reversed. lol

    I love it btw. And yes, i'm jealous...I would love that camera!
     
  5. thanks zach and yes this camera is a gem. i'm thinking about getting rid of it, so if you're interested let me know... that's still undecided though.
