In Amsterdam

The weekend of the 7th and 8th december i was in Amsterdam for 2 concerts at the Ziggodome. We stayed in town in Hotel van Onna during these days. I brought the Olympus E-P1 with 14mm Lumix attached hoping to be able to do some streetshots. In this post you can see some results. Hope you enjoy. It’s what i saw walking the streets, we walked around a lot and i fell in love with Amsterdam again.

Some shots were edited to correct perspective in PTLens, used the out of camera jpeg in Photoshop CC for this.  The rest are out of camera jpeg’s with a border added.

First roll through the F3

The first roll of film through the Nikon F3. Kodak TMax 400 asa, expired 2001. I used 3 different lenses for this test. A Nikon Series E 75-150 1:3.5, a Nikon Series E 100mm 1:2.8 and a Vivitar 28mm 1:2.5(Kiron made). It was great fun handling the F3 with these lenses. Shots are simple shots of all kinds of stuff.  My Coolscan ls-40 digitized the negatives and i used Photoshop to remove some spots and to do very small adjustmenst to the black and whitle levelpoints. No sharpening or anything else.

In the meanwhile i got a great gift, an Nikomat FT2 with Nikkor 50mm 1:2 pre ai. A gift from a gentleman i know from LC forum. Next to that i have a DW-3 WLF coming in for the F3.  Nice stuff!! Also i am now in the cloud with Adobe, i took there offer for Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5.

Also i was able to play with a Nikon Df and some ai-s glass, i was and still am stunned by this camera, it’s great!

ESA at A Human Adventure

Short time ago i posted a blog entry about ‘A Human Adventure’ That was about the world wide part of this exhibition: NASA.

But we dutchies had an extra part to this expo, about ‘ESA’ I guess other countries have some addition to, but with Andre Kuipers we have a big NASA celebrity. So here are the shots from that part of the expo. For my daughter this was better because there were interactive parts here wich she really likes, always at expo’s or musea. So a big bunch of shots here, hope it’s fun to watch if you ae interested in Space and spacetravel! For the dutch, go visit while you can!

All shot shere with the Olympus E-P1 + 14mm 1:2.5 Lumix ASPH. Shot with b&w preset at iso 1600.

F3

Through an internet contact who also has a love for photography and Nikon SLR’s a aquired this masterpiece. There was a hype going on at places i go to for photography on the net, so thought i would also give in to this long lasting wish. Got it a price i can live with and cannot complain about. It is a F3 with standard finder and K style focussing screen. Attached is the MD-4 moterdrive. First roll of film has gone through and all is fine! Its a beast, i love it!

Stay tuned for first results from this amazing camera.
