Well I'm in. I just shot some photos in Bulgaria this summer while I was there visiting friends and relatives. I'm waiting on them to be developed. So, I'm in for this challenge. I'll post as soon as I get the photos back and scan the photos/negatives.

Good set of images. I like #5 for its interesting perspective and #11 which technically could be said to be 'terrible' but works BECAUSE of the massive grain. That's part of the allure and joy of shooting film right; the unexpected

Ok I'm surprisingly late to this, having wrongfooted myself by not having any film in a Dynax SLR when I started the thread (I know I said it didn't matter, but I wanted to start with a Minolta AF camera).

Anyhow, here is my first film for this year's challenge - shot on a Dynax 7 using AGFAPHOTO APX400, developed in R09.

The first two here are experiments using the 'STF mode' of the Dynax 7... Basically the camera forms a shot from multiple exposures with different aperture values to achieve an STF-like effect. Of course, if your camera has such a mode that works well on a tripod, the urge is to try it in ways it was not intended for...

Bob01-01 ~ frame 6 ~ STF experiment


Bob01-02 ~ frame 7 ~ another STF Selfie (I often feel like this)


Rather more conventional (and not using STF mode)...

Bob01-03 ~ frame 8 ~ Pine Pond


Bob01-04 ~ frame 10 ~ More Pine Pond

Thanks for the comments on my Leica series. I know I should have started with a Minolta camera (I have 2, a 505 si super and a 7) but the Leica is such a joy to use and is throwing me back on how I learned to photograph, with a full manual camera and using a hand-held exposure meter. I promise to do a Minolta next to make up for this "lapse"

@Idleidolidyll, it's not really grain in #11, it's specks of rust on a cortensteel plate that give the impression of very course film grain.

@Bob J, Yes, I also think Maarten's photo is the best of the set, the nice thing about film is that you only find out you caught the right facial expression after you have developed and scanned the film, chimping doesn't work . I like your moving STF experiments, very creative, I would have never thought of trying something like this but now I do. Time to load the next film in the 7. And if you often feel like in 02 imo the best remedy is to stabilise

I'm wondering about shooting some STF motorsport with the 7 on a tripod as a car goes through a bend...

That's another interesting idea Bob. How does it move the aperture from large to small or small to large. For this idea about a car in a bend I would think large to small would work best, I'm assuming it doesn't AF between the shots, so the car might stay "somewhat" sharp that way due to the increased dof.

Interesting use of STF Bob. I use it on my Alpha 7 quite often but haven't tried it with strong subject movement (I have tried is on a windy day and it worked well).

Nice shots BTW; love the planes.

STF shoots 7 images and, as noted, varies the aperture and shutter speeds to build up a 'normal density' neg. It doesn't seem to refocus.

I was wondering whether a D series lens (8 pin) would act differently and I tried that using a 28-80 D vs a 50mm 5 pin. There didn't seem to be a difference that could be attributed to focus changes.

Something I'd be interested in seeing is STF mode when also using the Sony/Minolta STF lens: double STF. Can anyone do that and show us the result?

..well

I may have just had a disaster, or I may have got away with something...
As I was developing my latest film (Kentmere 400, R09)I had an 'incident'.

In pouring out the developer, the lid fell off the tank (but I always do it up! - not well enough obviously...).

I replaced it quickly, but light will have got in to ISO 400 film. I'm curious as to whether I've got away with anything as it was dilute developer and wash and stop went in straight after - I'm hoping that the super-long fix I gave the film will deal with any fogging... I will report back...

..never too old (or stupid) to make a mistake...
