The Shwaa?

Posted 2009.09.14 1.09 in Family/Friends, Hobbies, Photography by Stephanie

I spent some time in Oshawa on Saturday, visiting with my friend Lezley. We went to a park on the shore of Lake Ontario and walked around a pier there, where I shot off most of a roll of film using my Canonet GIII QL17 rangefinder. I got the exposures right this time, by dialing down the ISO setting from 400 to 250. In other words, the alkaline battery’s higher voltage is causing the meter to under-expose the film by about 2/3 of a stop.

Anyhow, here’s some shots. As with earlier film, this was Kodak Tri-X 400, developed in T-Max for about 6 minutes. These were exposed with the Canonet’s 40mm lens at various apertures, but mostly around 1/125 sec & f/11 to f/16.

    That was a good day. i like the ‘angles’ pic. The one of me is spectacularly unflattering. yaaaaay.

    I think Angles, Flare, and Shadow are my favorites. Though Angles could have been better – I should have stopped down so that the shadows were much darker. Now the silos are washed out, too light.

    I had to put up a pic of you though, since you got one of me looking all nasty squinting in the sun. 😛
