This one is an old soviet camera, assembled in 1959, still alive and kicking. A joy to use, in the 6x9 format, ranger finder, focusing with it is a pleasure, all is done manually, I have to use a separate light meter to measure the light according to the Zone System, and the results are absolutely stunning.


The shot


Standard exposure in RAW/ISO100 at f/16, 1/125 handheld using the 135mm Carl Zeiss manual focus lens, with a Canon Speedlite 430EX detached from the camera, lightning up from the side at arm length, firing on the second curtain, with the subject inside my light tent.


Adobe Camera Raw


Over the default settings, added some increase in Clarity and Vibrance, changed the White Balance to Flash, and played a little with the sliders on the HSL panel.




Just a small crop, an increase levels contrast, and my frame, of course
