Before departing John and I go off on a bit of a tangent about the upcoming Desert Fest featuring all the old codgers of rock including Sir Paul McCartney, The Who, Roger Waters and lots more! I asked John if Sir Paul was going to corner Pete Townshend and bore him to tears (again)! See vid below.
Leslie Lazenby kicks off the days topics with Daylight Film Tank chatter. She demonstrates the Brooks and the Rondinax tanks. Visit the awesome Rondinal site: https://rondinax.wordpress.com/
FPP's Film-Of-The-Week is our 35mm hand-rolled Svema Blue Sensitive film. It's on sale and it's awesome! Svema Blue Sensitive is a low-speed / high contrast intended for lab use but will produce a very pleasing "look" when shot in your 35mm still camera. Get it HERE!
This blue-sensitive* black-and-white film has very high resolution and incorporates a yellow dye, which is removed during processing, to provide very high sharpness and contrast.
There is no "rem jet" associated with this film (like the color Vision stocks) and can be developed in chemistry like Kodak D76, HC-110, Ektol and others. This film can also be commercially processed by The Darkroom and other commercial labs that process black and white film.
How do I meter for iso 1.5? If you camera can't be set to iso 1.5, you can set your meter iso to 25 and set your f-stops accordingly.
25 ISO with a +1 correction would be 12 ISO
25 ISO with +2 is 6 ISO
25 ISO with +3 is 3 ISO
25 ISO with +4 is 1.5 ISO
* Blue Sensitive films need to be shot in daylight or using a flash/strobe. Avoid using a yellow filter or shooting in tungsten (indoor) light.
Next up Mat Marrash gives some great tips on promoting your own photography and then Mark Dalzell talks up one of his favorite SLR cameras - the Pentax ME 35mm camera!
Mark O'Brien rounds things out with chatter about "Series Filters" and then Leslie ends the show with great info on what Polarized filters are.
