Today I took the #Leica M6 I inhertited to the local Leica store, because it's broken. The guy in the store actually sent me to another place, saying that Leica charges insane prices for repairs. (around 700€ he estimated)
The camera #workshop he sent me to is run by this 80 year old guy and the workshop looks like such a cliche :D tiny and filled to the brim with #cameras!
He estimated 160€ for the repair and I am very excited to see the results!
correction: Some may think, that the natural vignetting of very fast lenses is a bad thing.
A few prints from a Ilford pan F roll I shot. I never liked how it scanned and thought the film was not for me but now looking at an actual darkroom print from it, wow. The to tones and clarity are amazing. Just goes to show how much is lost in a scan.
Today my sister's #bees in our garden decided to #swarm, that was a nice opportunity to catch a few pictures.
I tried to do an HDR but that one I'll post as a photofail...
So here's part of the swarm sitting in our apple tree. Luckily the trees in our garden attract the swarms and we don't have to chase them!
Another shot from Red Thunder. This is a Nanchung CJ-6 (a Chinese copy of a Russian Yak-52), taking off.
Part of a series of shots I did attempting stupidly slow shutter speed panning.
This one was 1/60th sec at 400mm f/9.
Canon EOS 1Dx + Canon EF 200mm f/1.8L & Canon 2x TC.
This #photo shows pretty well, how I make a shot look nice by following simple rules :D
Keep the horizon out of the center of the shot, ramp the #Clarity setting in photoshop's raw development to max and add some #crossprocessing 👍
Also I think this makes a nice #wallpaper. If you want to use it, message me the dimensions and I'll resize and crop it for you!
The ISO scale on my Leica M6 goes to ISO 6... Does anyone still produce that kind of film? And what did you use that for, except for shooting on glaciers? 🤔
