I'm wondering if any of those digital shooters were from the press...and you might have your image in some local paper as "these two strange LF photographers who came out of the woodwork!" If you find one...get the web site for that paper so we all can see it....
Good to see news from you Ron, and of course Valerie..our thoughts have been with you guys. Hope you both DO get out and share what you find with us.
Sorry about the baby squirrels Valerie, I know what fun that can add to a day with their antics.
Sounds good! I need to get out myself and snap a few pics other than the ones of the tree on my house...lol.
OMG!! You are in Magnolia??? We definitely need to get together for coffee and camera talk.
Thanks for the nice comments everyone. Still no power, but counting my blessings every time I see images from other areas.
Some picts are on flickr: http://flickr.com/photos/eyefeminie/
Good to see you all came out alright. I'm also in Magnolia, still w/o power and running water. No major damage though, which is good.
Me too. Hope you find the time to get some soon.
I would be very interested in seeing some photos!
I know a pro that uses polaroids to check exposure/lighting for studio photos, and he just uses the Fujifilm version.
I had a Mamiya DTL 500 bought new in 1974 - although the camera was launched in about 1970 I think. It ran perfectly for 29 years until the meter failed. I gained my LRPS and ARPS with it. M42 screw lenses could be a bind but I used Tamron Adaptalls and left the mount on the body. This then converted the camera to a quick release bayonet fit! (this feature is not so easy on other cameras as the mountings are more complex.) I bought this camera in preference to the spotmatic because it (the mamiya) had dual metering -average and spot. Since losing the camera my photography has never really been the same . A bit like losing an old friend.
Antonya, you're preaching to the converted here, in the seventy s I managed a camera shop, and handled all the good stuff every day, I felt like a kid in a toy shop and spent far too much of my salary every month on it, since the company allowed staff to buy it at cost price.
I have and use regularly A Canon , A1, FTbn, and EF , I also have a F1N AE and aT90 but they are eighty's cameras.
I too love cameras you don't have to nurse, that you can knock nails in with, and they still work.
