    Photographer James Legg photographing the surf at Ocean Beach, California. Taken with a 50mm Zuiko with a yellow filter on HIE, and developed in stock D76 for 8 and one half minutes.
     
  2. Chris, I like the composition on this one.
     
  3. Great shot Chris. I really like this one.
     
  4. Definitely caught my eye.

    How did you figure the exposure?

    Thanks Ray, Anthony and Ed. I used the often-wrong, center-weighted meter in the OM1, and it was probably 1/250 @ f/8. Or thereabouts.

    By the way, this guy, James, picked up on coffee developer in a big way. He found that addition of a small amount of vitamin c to the brew eliminates the staining and shortens the development time considerably. I haven't tried that yet, because it also slows the film speed.

    Just fyi.
     
  7. chris this is an awesome shot, full of energy and the photographer seems to literally glow on top of the background. i love the tonality of infrared film, i have to try it sometimes myself!!

    Thanks Malf! HIE is expensive and less than half the exposures come out, but it's my favorite film nevertheless.

    Here is the contact sheet..
     
  9. I love contact sheets.

    I have been thinking I want to start scanning one from every roll I develop. And in order. Worst problem being that I use those six wide archive sheets, and that won't fit on my scanner.

    I used to do them on photo paper, so I had to keep the area within 8x10. Now that same size fits my scanner perfectly. Unfortunately I only get 35 frames in a sheet, so there is always at least one (more likely 2) frames orphaned. I keep a sheet just for them. Like your 'test strip' frames, they are often unique.

    Of course the F5 has the option of stopping at 35 or 36 frames, but I like to wring every last bit of film out of a roll.
     
  11. Exceptional work Chris............ I hope you are paying the correct modelling fees! :biggrin:

    Thanks Graeme! James is a fellow student, and we both ended up in San Diego last weekend serendipitously. I got his lunch at the Prado, so I think the answer is yes!
