Winter textures

Seeing textures in the snow and ice.

Lake Champlain ice floe

The lake never froze this winter, but on cold days, you cold see ice build up along the shore. This was after a cold spell when there was ice left in the eddies.

River into lake Burlington bike path

Lake Champlain shore where a crappy little stream runs out of the Barge Canal, a Superfund site (the bad stuff is settled on the bottom and not in the water, or so they say). Love the layers of shades and textures.

Snow on beach, Lake Champlain

Snow on the beach looks almost like sand dunes.

Nikon F2AS test run

Picked up a Nikon F2AS a while back and took it out for a spin last fall fitted with a Nikkor-S 35mm F2.8, converted to AI.

Expired film

Shot a roll of expired Fujifilm Superia 400 and, as expected, the colors came out a bit dodgy. Still, the muted shades and the hues that lean toward the browns fit the late autumn scenes that I shot. This was also my first outing with the Nikon F100 and a couple of AF prime lenses, including the 85mm f.18, 24mm f2.8 and the 20mm f2.8.

A couple of frames from my benighted roll of HP5.

Truly a benighted roll of film

Posted in 35mm, photography, SLR with tags , , , , , , , on October 20, 2013 by msogavt

Just finished a roll of HP5 – in its third camera. Started the roll in a Nikon FE, but the electronics crapped out and the shutter stopped working, so switched to a Nikkormat FT3 – battery died so no light meter, but now the battery cap was stuck. Finished in a Canon FE. The shooting went smoothly, but at the end of the roll, the film came off its canister. I had to find a dark place to take the film out, roll it up and put in a film can – I hope these things are light tight and there’s little damage done to the exposures.
