Day 4 - January 5th, 2018 - Belfountain And Still Life

A day off on Friday, a nice change from the usual hustle and bustle of the big city, so I took a short trip north to Belfountain Conservation. My trusty Super Ikonta in hand with an extra companion. A 1940's Kodak Jiffy 616 roll film camera. This camera is huge! Yet it still fit perfectly in my pants pocket... Well.. my cargo pants pocket.. haha! It's a massive negative too!
Loaded with Verichrome Pan and wrapped in a scarf to prevent errant light from leaking into the bellows and making a muck of things.. I was ready to capture the impossible!

The Ikonta cleaned up, of course. With some still life shots in the morning with a Close Up filter, not too shabby, on Ilford XP2 no less... Really excited to see the results from this setup.. Never know, I might have caught Gold on Silver... haha!
I wonder if I can do that with my box camera... Ideas ideas ideas.. hrmmm...

















With these ideas, perhaps I will be able to expand my knowledge and skill level.  Learning to do still life is incredibly challenging. I haven't done a lot because of the challenge involved, however I do have a fair amount of help with someone who is incredibly good at it.

The idea of actually shooting Still Life with a Rangefinder is probably nothing new, but I like to think I'm stepping into a different frontier every time I do something silly like this..

Until next time, stay tune.. Photos will be following..

Keep those shutters firing!
