Yashica TLR  - 
 
First outing with my new tlr.
 
Finished scanning the film from the shots I took at the "old car city" near Atlanta, really a photographers dream.

I will post some of the images on my blog next week that were shot digitally but for now a sneak peak to some of the analogue shots I took.

Shot with the Yashica 124 Mat.
Fuji 400H pro
C41 developing at home
Scanned with Reflecta MF5000 and silver fast.

It's amazing to see how pinsharp these images are from a TLR camera. I dare to say I like the images more than what was shot on my digital cameras :D

Impressive sharpness and beautiful colours, not bad for the little Yashica, a very surprising camera indeed.
I love the diffuse light and the depth of field, very immersive.
To me a vintage car cemetery is like a sacred place and your shots transmit that quietness and respect I would feel if I was there.
Great shots +Frank Doorhof and welcome to R&TLR, looking forward to see more updates from you, thanks!

Something to think about.

Loads of people compare the new batch of cameras with high megapixels to their old cameras and sometimes they have some "weird" conclusions.

1. There is hardly any improvement in noise.
Well downscale your image to the MP count from your previous camera, when looking at a picture at 100% there will be much more detail and noise with a high-resolution camera. So downsize the image to your old resolution and check again.

However this is a bit of a "in between" solution. Best way to test for noise is to just print, on the monitor you often see "blurs" and noise that are not seen on print, and let's be honest we shoot for print right?


2. I can throw away my old lenses because they don't have the resolution of the new camera....
Well yeah and no.
Some people claim this indeed.
In reality it's not that "bad"
Your lens will perform just as good as on your old camera and get more detail out of the shots.

However SOME lenses will perform even better on the new camera.

If you shoot with a crappy lens on a 12MP camera and on a 36MP camera that is downsized to 12MP I dare to say that the downsized image will look better :-)

So enjoy your new camera WITH your old lenses and as a final tip, PRINT your images if you feel the need to upgrade lenses (or cameras) often this will save you a LOT of money. In 99% of the cases the prints will look just fine. We are way too obsessed by looking at the monitor at 100%, and that's a good thing to check for retouching etc. but it doesn't give you the real story of how a print will look.

Well said Frank! Simple and true, I always say the same to my clients. Focus on photography not on pixels, the cameras were never better than nowdays...

Scanning some negatives from the Yashica TLR with the Reflecta MF500 DEEPLY impressed by the quality that this combination gives.

Will post some results later today, but I think I'm gonna enjoy this combination a lot.

Cool Topaz is running another 50% off.
50% promotion on Topaz Detail, with coupon code "aprdetail".

Topaz Detail helps photographers get tack-sharp images that "pop". Here are the main benefits of using it:

* Better control over image detail. Detail uses size-based processing that lets you independently adjust small, medium, and large details.
* More natural images. The technology in Detail substantially reduces the halos and artifacts you get from over-sharpening.
* More volume and three-dimensionality. Detail can enhance larger image features to increase the perceived "depth" of your photo.

You can see some examples on their product page: http://www.topazlabs.com/detail

If ordering please use : http://www.topazlabs.com/aff/idevaffiliate.php?id=716&url=http://www.topazlabs.com/detail and also support our work.

The fun thing about the Topaz plugins is that they (in my opinion) are some of the best value on the market and give you a very customizable experience. Or in short I love them :D

Soon it's time to brew a new batch of my c41 and e6 chemicals. However when I follow the mix for the final step I don't have enough of the fix.

I thought I read that the developer and bleach in the c41 and e6 had to be changed by 16-20 films but that the fix could go on a lot longer.

Who knows ?

I changed the times to 4 minutes and 16 minutes yesterday and the results were perfect so I guess indeed I will keep using them for a while now.

I meant the third step indeed.
I scan the day after the developing so I could even skip that step I heard but I want to make sure my negatives/positives are at least safe for if needed :D

Oh my....
Just got an email from one of my models that shots from my portfolio are being used to promote another ones workshop.... if I gave permission... no :-)


Listen, if you are teaching workshops make sure you show images that you created yourself and don't steal images from other photographers.

If you don't have enough images to fill a flyer than DON'T TEACH A WORKSHOP... yeah sorry for the capitals but this really pisses me off......

I teach workshops myself and I find that if you teach you have to inspire people and teach people techniques they can use, but most of all you must be able to do it yourself... if you steal images for the promotion of your own workshops... well this is just not good.

Volgens mij wordt tegenwoordig bij het KCA veel zoiezo bij elkaar gegooid, nadeel van tegenwoordig is dat je je afval in kannen achter moet laten, en dus niet meer zelf in het grote verzamelvat mag kieperen.....
