There is a revolution happening in digital cameras, and it’s all about miniaturization. We peruse 5 different SMC Takumars in this walk around Longwood Gardens.
The Pentax-FA* 24mm f/2 is a small (for it’s focal length and aperture), well-built, sharp, fun lens.
Some shots with my delicious Pentax FA* 85mm f/1.4 lens.
January 1st is a great time to go to Longwood Gardens.
I love the ‘silver’ room they have, and am envious of that cat.
One of the vagaries of shooting film, which won’t really be replicated by digital, is finally getting around to developing a roll which was taken a while ago.
From an earlier short trip to Longwood Gardens, I wanted to get there before the water lilies were done for the year.
Shots from Longwood Gardens and West Chester.
Always a good spot to see how lenses work out.
Similar to my last walk around Longwood Gardens with my medium format camera, this time with negative color film instead of positive. These are all 16 shots from the roll.
Do you remember slide shows, in an actual projector? Fuji Provia 400X is a “chrome”, or a color positive image, instead of a negative like most film.
Scenes from Baldwin’s Book Barn and Longwood Gardens.
I decided to take another walk around Longwood Gardens to see how the orchids are doing. As usual, I spent time with the calla lilies and the silver room, too.
These are scans of real film, all the way to the sprocket holes. This is from a quick Sunday visit to Longwood Gardens. Taken with my F100, and both my 200mm f/4 macro and SMC Takumar 100mm f/4 macro.
