Lady Eleanor, The Rigbys

I have had my Fujica GSW690 photos back from the developers and I am so pleased with the results.

No not all the shots are keepers, yes I have much to learn about using this beast of a camera but on the whole I love these photos.

The are detailed, wide shots with crisp images and great depth (when I got the rangefinder focussing right, I have 2 shots that didn’t work but that’s not a bad hit rate for my first proper day out with this camera).

I took this photo of the houseboat “Lady Eleanor, The Rigbys” handheld with Pancro 400 (which I have not shot before).

It was a bright morning and the film did a great job of capturing the contrast and shadows.

I am in love with the depth of these images, there is so much detail in the frame.

The new developers (Kirkless Photographic) did an excellent job of scanning and producing digital images for me.

In fact the resolution of the images was so good, four rolls (32 shots) came in just over 3Gb in size!

I now have a selection of photos I like and some I want to get printed.

I look forward to getting out with the Texas Leica again soon.
