On 20-2-2015 we visited this nice park. It was a grey day and eventually we had to counter some rain. Still it was impressive and i want to visit it again with my tripod and more gear to do some more photography.
Back with more analogue. All images shot with my Nikon F3, 50mm f2 ai-s on SuperiaXtra 400 asa expired 2-2011. I used the DW-3 waist level finder. Nice slow down photography using this kind off focusing and i am happy with the results. It was difficult to get accurate focus but almost every shot was a hit, maybe because i really took the time for the composition end the focusing. Shots are all taken at The Gardens of Life in Teuge, The Netherlands. Enjoy!
As promised in my last post, here is the second roll of film. Started at Teufelsberg and finished at Hohenschönhausen. Teufelsberg is an old NATO station used by the americans to listen to the east. Hohenschönhausen is the reason why perhaps? An old Stasi prison which is now a memorial place. The only portrait in the serie is our guide who has been imprisoned there.
This may we went on holiday to Berlin. We started of with Film Hotel Lily Marleen in Potsdam on the 18th. Potsdam we wanted to see because the trip before we just saw Sans Souci. Potsdam was ok but not great. But…..Before we came to Potsdam we stopped at Beelitz-Heilstätten for a nice urbex adventure, wich it became! I brought my just bought Olympus E-M10 but also being the the only Nikon gear my F100+50mm 1.4g AF-S. The film was expired unfortunately very expired. I had a lot of work in Photoshop adjusting the scans, but here is the whole series of that filmroll. Hope you can enjoy anyway! I filled 2 more rolls wich i will post soon.
Techstuff; Nikon F100, Nikkor 50mm 1.4 g AF-S, Kodak Portra 400 nc Expired(no clue but not great film no more), Coolscan LS-40, Photoshop.
Nikomat FT2 + Nikkor 50mm 1:2. This gear is a gift, a great gift. What a fun machine to work with. Also i am pleasantly surprised with the lens. If you have read my previous post about the F3, for the pictures and the feeling about these counts as the same. This is what i see around me and for me it’s fun to do, maybe it’s not that interesting for you as a reader, but as some info and performance of gear and film it might be usefull.
Techstuff: Nikomat FT2, Nikkor 50mm 1:2, Fuji Superia Xtra 400 asa expired 2-2012, Coolscan LS-40, Nikon San 4.03 12 bit default ice fine, Photoshop CC for color correction and some little tweaks like sharpening. Bordermaker was used for the white border and sig.
Leaves, colorfull and ready to become obsolete are great subjects for photography. Every year i look for them again. I love the colors that appear in autumn a lot! All shot with the 50 1.4 on my D90. LR 5.2 was used to develop the raw files.
