Bessaflex TM & Zeiss Planar T* 50mm f1.4

Post by Araner » Tue Aug 12, 2014 3:37 pm

These images were taken with a Bessaflex TM camera combined with a Zeiss Planar T* 50mm f1.4 ZS (M42) mount lens. I loaded the camera with a roll of Fujicolor ISO 100 color negative film (yes, that's the cheap stuff). Negatives were scanned with an Epson V600 photo scanner.

I thought of Shakespeare when I saw this stain glass window at the top of the stairwell in the Yokohama Port Opening Memorial Hall.

It's one of Commodore Perry's ships anchored in Yokohama bay.

These are just from walking around town.

Mr Kobayashi has brought out some interesting cameras, hasn't he? I'm glad to see you using one of them! Keep it up.

Gentlemen, thank you for the kind comments and encouragement.

Returning to film after all these years and trying to get the same results I'm currently getting with my digital photography is proving to be a challenge. And, that's a good thing :D

Regards,
Mike
