Have been trying to shoot a flying dragonfly for a while now. It has proven to be incredibly difficult, since the camera keeps focusing on the background. This one turned out fairly decent, though :)

Pour l'รฉclipse, ร  Paris, รงa semble mal parti... mais le ciel a de la gueule quand mรชme !

Today I took the 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 700โ‚ฌ he estimated)
The camera 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 !
He estimated 160โ‚ฌ for the repair and I am very excited to see the results!

@BobTarte
Thank you!

I love this place, people just help you, when you have a question.
Not like stackexchange or stackoverflow, where the first reaction always is "this has already been answered, go look there" ๐Ÿ˜…

Here's another film question. In the long run I want to use ilford films and their chemisty, but I have a kodak film, I got from my dad. How do I find out the development times for that? Ilford only gives data for their own film...

correction: Some may think, that the natural vignetting of very fast lenses is a bad thing.

It's been a while, but here's a few I shot today, while I was out with a few colleagues.
Some may think that vignetting is a bad thing, but the clear sky would have been way to boring, without it :D

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.

@itdm5j21
Awesome! Thank you! Hopefully I'll have results to show ๐Ÿ˜„

I don't know if I asked this before, but does anyone have a beginners to film ?
I just finished my first /W film and am super motivated ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
I even have equipment from a friend but no idea what to do ๐Ÿ˜…

@filmhotdog
That looks so surreal! I don't know why, though ๐Ÿ˜…

And here is the .
It doesn't look too bad at this size, but the body of bees is mainly artifacs from the merging of three images for the . Of course the bees didn't hold still just because I wanted a picture... ๐Ÿ˜„ And also it didn't turn out as impressive as I'd hoped...

Today my sister's in our garden decided to , 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 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 setting in photoshop's raw development to max and add some ๐Ÿ‘
Also I think this makes a nice . 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? ๐Ÿค”

@z428
Wow that is awesome! Even on close inspection it looks like this picture is oriented correctly!
