Sneaky TLR shot, this young lady was knocking this out:
Beautiful shot FB!
I am totally digging this thread!
Great shots...digital just isn't there yet. What a great feeling film has. You really see the difference after not seeing it for a while.
kinda a gimme, the subject makes up for my ineptitude.
Thanks, more to come...keep tuned
digital makes leaps and bounds, but there is something nice about holding a negative up to a light and trying to visualize what you got.
excellent pics, subscribed!
Fantastic pics !
Borrowed my father's '72 Nikon F 35mm, and went shooting at the Coronado Festival of Speed. Lesson learned...red filter...not good for shooting cars.
damned crown vic.
built a 30's speedgraphic, this was my first go with it. This shot was taken blind over head standing in the trunk of my daily.
back to the rolleiflex:
Great shots! I've been dipping my toes into the massive pool that is photography and been fiddling around with my newest purchase, a Canon EOS Rebel XS. I also have a toy camera that uses Instamax film but no vintage cameras that still use film rolls.
You have some wonderful shots. Thank you for sharing with us.
(And keep sharing.. )
Love the new shots, keep up the good work
Great stuff man. I got my first "real" camera for HS graduation in 1974. I have over 20,000 shots of cars in "the archives". Still have a big drawer full of film cameras. Everything from an Argus brick to a wonderful Zenza-Bronica medium format reflex with some nice Nikkor lenses. I still think like a film shooter, compose, wait for the crowd to part, etc. etc. I got a DSLR about 5 years ago but still haven't got my head around the whole post processing thing.
I guess film is sort of like flatheads, not the latest and greatest, but it's got soul.
You sir, have amazing talent. I love seeing everything you shoot. Thank you for the posts
One of my favorites! Photo and Ferrari. I have seen this ride in person. Owner is a very cool gent.
Some of my best shots have been without my big head being behind the eye hole.
I have switched over to the darkside with a DSLR 40D. I still have my Rebel 2000. I just used it in the spring when I took a basic photography class here at Modesto Junior College. I have to say. Shooting B&W film without assistance (All Manual) was some of the best photgraphy I ever had to work for. I actually got an A in the class.
See above reply. It wasn't too bad once I learned how to do it.
Ilford Delta 125 is what I used for my class. Great film.
I love this Aston Martin! See it every year at Laguna Seca.
Hit me up next time you want to come down to Laguna. I'll get you to a few nice locations to shoot from.
One of my favorite vintage F1 cars. The owner is a great guy. Spoke to him quite a bit last year. Too busy this year to talk to him though.
The Ass end of a Ferrari 275 GTB. NICE!
Great Stuff! Keep it up!
When I get through all the classes I need too, I plan on getting more serious with my cameras. I will do both Digital and film. I try my best to shoot the DSLR and not edit anything at all. I can't anyways. no software to do so. I prefer original without manipulation anyways.
Beautiful stuff, FB. What is that gorgeous sports racer #67 in pic 200? Maserati 300S?
