Oxford: Lunch hour session

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

These images are from the first roll of film through my Rolleiflex SL66 on the day that I received it. As I bought the camera sight unseen it was clear to me early on that the camera and I were going to get along just fine. One of the many nice things about using manual mechanical film cameras is not having to spend time navigating unfamiliar menus or having to trawl through an instruction manual just to change one simple setting. You just set the exposure, compose, focus and then *click*.

[Tech info:] Rolleiflex SL66 camera with Zeiss Planar 80mm/f2.8 lens, loaded with expired Kodak Tri-X film. Processed in Rodinal (1:50) by me.

Right after the previous fruit and veg shot I turned around and grabbed this shot. There was a coach blocking this Mini from turning, that's why the driver looks so unhappy.
