feeling fine

Quite a dramatic sky, don’t you think?

I’ve been told by some not to overdo it. “Infrared is nice, but it shouldn’t become just a trick”. Well, it *is* nice (that is to say: I like it), but it’s *not* just a trick. True, results are not as predictable as with normal light, but a trick it isn’t. And I don’t think I’m overdoing it; I think I found something that I really enjoy. (Besides, it seems to get me free drinks from Niels, haha!)

I hope you too enjoy another infrared shot. Maybe there will even be another… Keep watching this space and find out.

Blah-blah: Mamiya C3, 715 nm filter, Ilford SFX-200 in Fotospeed FD10.

    This one I like very much. YOu still haven't told me how do you like FD10

    Richo, I like the FD10. Quick, easy, nice times for most of the films (between 7 and 12 minutes). I'm not going to say anything scientific about grain size, micro contrast or all that, but just a simple: I like the results so far.

    Well, a roll of Delta 3200 shot at 3200 came out rather thin, next time I'll use my Microphen 1+0 for that one again, but that's the only minus so far.

    P.S.: I haven't forgotten about the beer, just been rather busy.

    Yes, another whisky-shot indeed (pun intended)…
    But this one calls more for a "wet hay and/or straw" kind of whisky, so Laphroaig seems out of the question here.

    Dramatisch is ook wat bij mij opkwam, en toen had ik je tekst nog niet eens gelezen. Mooi hoor…
