    Iskra Photos

    Haven't been able to get into the darkroom to enlarge these, but wanted to share some neg scans from my 6x6 Russian Iskra (75mm f/3.5 Tessar lens). It's a fun camera that has been accompanying me to school and these shots are all off of the first two rolls. I've started parking on different streets as I walk to school and photographing the stoops that interest me. There are another 3 or 4 rolls of these to be developed!

    All are Iskra 6x6 Rangefinder with Foma400 (Arista.edu Ultra) @ 200 in HC-110. The exposures on all of these shots were just guessed, but I started carrying an incident meter with me for the 3rd roll.

    First image off of the camera:


    Second negative, which Cara took of me... I swear she's a better photographer than I am AND she makes a much better model! Definitely not fair


    This third image is later that evening at Cara's apartment while she was checking her email. If I remember correctly this was just guessed to be 1 sec @ f/3.5 (the slowest other than B on the camera and wide open)... oh, yeah, ALL of these images are hand-held. It takes a humongous tripod screw and I don't have an adaptor yet.


    Lunch with my friend Travis resulted in this shot before we left. Probably one of my favorites off of the roll as it captures him in a moment of thought as we were having one of our "deep" conversations on random philosophies.


    Here we start with some of the stoop shots









    Finally, an old car for Jim Galli



    I'm very much liking the "look" of the old, uncoated Tessar, but since the lens seems to be a little low contrast and so I might look for a yellow filter to adapt onto the end of this puppy.

    Just thought I would share.

    I like the look too. You have to make few prints from the negatives. I like the "Travis" shot too.

    Yes, I remember seeing his portfolio in Lenswork a number of issues back and really loved the look.

    Jeremy- congrats on the new toy. Another vote for the portrait of Travis being a winner. I also like the very first "stoop" in the series.

    Congrats - the Buick photo really stands out in my opinion. The vintage car in not so great a shape thing has been done to death, so getting a stand out image with that idea really says something about the photographer - way to go!

    I just want to know what the tat says. And where's your Blue October tattoo?? (BTW, Travis and the Buick are my faves). I have a Super Ikonta IV with the 75mm Tessar. LOVE that camera...

    da mi basia mille

    From a poem by Catullus which was the first thing I translated 100% correctly. Haha, if I had more money I would be getting more tattoos, but alas.... I'm thinking articulated skeleton and muscles on my left shoulder/bicep for the next one.

    Had a Super Ikonta f/2.8 with 80mm lens, but couldn't abide by the tiny viewfinder. The cheaper Iskra has a better viewfinder in my opinion (did I mention the cheaper part?).
