Frame 02

Pentacon Six TL w/ Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 50mm f/4 and Fujifilm Neopan Acros (Kodak D76 1:1, Ilford rapid fixer). f/6.7, 1/60s. Epson V700 and Silverfast SE Plus 8.0 @ 3200 dpi, downsized to 1600 dpi. Retouched and cropped.

 

I joined a photowalk in Häckeberga natural reserve earlier this summer. You can bet that an East-German medium format camera with a big wideangle lens on it draws some attention.

 

I remember that I wasn't all that impressed with this photo when I took it, and it was close that I wouldn't scan it at all. So it's ironic that this turned out to be my favourite.

 

Also, I'm not sure why I set the lens to halfway between f/5.6 and f/8. Maybe I made that light measurement or I - as I often do - just slipped with my index finger on the aperture ring when I took the photo. The previous frame was exposed with f/4.8 so I guess f/5.6 was my intention.
