I was just watching this video on youtube about "should images be sharp" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8ZLlPY19uI)
and started to wonder. His example photo is a bit soft also due to age and analog technology. But still, can I get away with more obvious unsharpness and still have a photo which evokes an other feeling besides "he shouldn't.. really!"
So here's an unsharp photo and my question, could I get away with it.. ;-)
As I'm lucky to see the sunset out of the window of my workspace, I have a whole series of "out of my window" sunsets from which this is the latest..
In the days of yore we made photograms by putting stuff on photographic paper in the darkroom, expose it to light and develop it.
Nowadays we don't need those chemicals anymore as you can do exactly the same using a filmscanner... Light shines from above through the object and the result is alike.
ayes, the last photo under #photo which I see is from 8 hours ago. Before that time things seemed to work for showing images from other instances.
The vpn version also shows photos from other instances which I also don't see on my #photo column. So it's not only the images from my own instance (photog) which I don't see.
Besides my RB67 I've also used my old Asahi Pentax once again last year. Besides some issues with the mirror which were solved with a drip of oil (mechanical camera's! ;) and the fact that the battery for the light-meter are no longer sold it still worked fine.
As the model is from 1963 (and the camera was at least 3th had when I bought it around my 12/13th birthday) it's as old as I am and still going strong.. Like it's owner..;))

On of the "quirks" of the original RB67 is the overcomplicated way to go to the next exposure:
Unlock, forward film, turn mirror down.
Then CHECK is there's indeed a new exposure.
Of course, never having to deal with this in such a way, it often goes wrong, resulting in a double exposure.
But as I liked the result it goes to fotofail as well as photograpy

All kinds of images, all mine.
Digital, analog, nature, street, etc.
A place for your photos and banter. Photog first is our motto
