Crich tramway museum on HP5

This is the walkway leading to the main part of the ‘village’ at the Crich Tramway museum which we visited last week. As with the pictures I published earlier, this picture was taken with a Pentax MZ-3 autofocus 35mm slr on HP5+ film developed in Rodinal and scanned with an Epson V550 Perfection scanner. I have done a little bit of post processing in Lightroom on this picture – adding a bit of noise reduction and sharpening to give the […]

The Tram repair shop at Crich

This is another picture I took at the Crich tramway museum, this time in the repair shop using a Pentax MZ-3 slr loaded with HP5+ film and using a Sigma 24 – 70mm autofocus zoom lens.

The film was rated at its box speed of 400 ISO, and with the lens at it’s widest […]

It was only after I’d completed it and […]

I’d received the camera and checked as I always do that there was no film in it by winding the rewind […]

Kodak Brownie reflex samples and shooting experiences

A week or so ago I bought a pair of Kodak Brownie Reflex vintage cameras and found one had a reel of  partially exposed 127 film in. A couple of days ago I took the camera with me as I went for a walk round the town, and these are my experiences of shooting with it and the Kodak brownie reflex samples I obtained. As I described in my descriptive post about the cameras, I had to transfer the roll […]
