These are using a beat up Mamiyaflex C2 (you have to cock the shutter) and
3.5/105 Sekor lens.

Part of the roll was fogged due to my stupidity. I had one roll of 35mm film
loaded in a Paterson tank, but since I have 4 other reels I decided to load
a 120, wrap a couple of black plastic bags around it, and placed in a box.
Unfortunately was not a light-tight situation.:redface:

The first pic shows the end of the fogged frames, but I rather like it
anyway, and the baby pic was farther inside the spool and wasn't affected:

I only shot two frames of the baby, the other I posted at the film section.

Using Thornton's 2-Bath homebrew, 5+5, 20C and TMAX 400 film.

Bill, the fogging in the first one works as nice muted side light & adds feel,mood & an interesting tone. I'm amazed by the IQ of the baby shot! Excellent proximity & cute factor! Seriously Fine Work Here & In The Film Section!!!

Bill,
Those are really compelling shots. I don't know how to describe why exactly. I do think you're use of film makes me realize that digital still has a lot to learn !

Yes, the fogging gives the first photo a very touch.
The 2nd one is quite nice.
Film is somewhat like Vinyl.

Bill, The baby shot is wonderful. I love the eyes! The first shot is really interesting because the expression is so somber, but she's wearing that beatufiul necklace. It makes me want to know what was going on with her that day. Very compelling shot. In this case, the fog really adds to the mood.

Floyd, thanks, I just love shooting with cameras that are almost as old as I!:biggrin:

Great analogy, Ky, and I was so stoopid in selling my vinyl collection in Japan
in the late 80's! Thanks!

Dossy, thanks, the girl in the first is 16, have no idea what was on her mind!:biggrin:

The first is an excellent portrait.

David, thanks, appreciate it! Both images are uncropped, like how I can zoom in and get what I want in the frame using the
long bellows.

I love the fogging! I really like the composition of the first shot.

Thanks, Alan, seems to be a happy mistake.:smile: Here's one I didn't post in

Bill do do some amazing stuff with film with no fancy equipment...
I'm sure you would get a superb shot using a cigarette packet with a hole in the side and a roll of film stuffed in it... Your amazing...

Nice, is the C2 anything like the 220 (I had one with a couple of lenses. The fogging acutally is an interesting element. Like your processing also.
