Roll 46. Doggie.
I’ve been shooting Doggie a lot lately. He doesn’t mind being a model every once in a while, and probably doesn’t even notice as long as I don’t bump into him with the camera.
Dim interior shots, and no flash, the camera set to 1/15 and an aperture at f1.7 most of the time. It will be easier to get shots of Doggie in motion in the summer, when I get some natural light to work with.
When I developed film yesterday I found the digital thermometer dead. Since the film was already in the pre soak I decided to wing it. The roll of Ultrafine Extreme 400 (or Ultrafine Xtreme as they write it on their web) came out just fine. The roll of Fuji C200 I did in the same bath looked fine on the negatives, but didn’t scan very well. It seems the old scanner was better for that film.
I like shooting with the Nikon F4, it’s big and heavy, but it makes nice sounds when winding film. And it has a certain heft to it that my other cameras lack. Maybe that’s what’s letting me get away with hand held 1/15.
