    Funnily enough I much prefer the shots Weegee took during daylight hours...


    When is this little adventure going to take place? I have the Pacemaker Speed Graphic and a DDS but no film...(yet)

    Thanks,

    Surfing Weegee-style

    So we're out casually shooting at Sandy Beach on 'O'ahu toward the end of our stay in Hawai'i this summer, and there's a surfing competition. I've got my Tech V 4x5", a cammed 150mm/f:4.5 Xenar, no tripod, yellow filter, and one sheet of Tri-X and one sheet of Efke PL100 left at the end of the day--all the wrong stuff. The guys with the DSLRs and long lenses seemed a little bemused, but still, the best camera is the one in your hand.

    I saw some classic surf shots in B&W from the 1950s and 60s when we were there, and I think I want to try some more of this, but with a longer lens next time.

    This one is cropped from the sheet of Efke PL100 rated at EI 200 in Acufine, f:11, 1/250 sec.

    Thanks Dave, it looks really nice on my monitor.....I just got a good stash of efke 4 x 5 from J and C and will begin in earnest on some "Wee Gee stuff". The completion of the darkroom is at hand, have been out of operation for the summer, I am planning on taking the graflex to London with me next month and getting some street scenes. Hopefully I then can come up with the knowledge, skills, and ability to post the results!

    David I hope you're still watching this thread.

    When you shot those Weegee-style shots with the bare bulb flash, did you have the bulb totally bare, just sticking there up in the air, or did you have some kind of a reflector on it?

    Reason I'm asking is that I just came upon a huge honking Sunpak 120J which does have a "bare bulb" mode by unfastening the reflector. I plan to use this in my Weegee look experiments. I test fired it a couple of times with the bulb only, just pointed up and GEESH! that's gonna attract a LOT of attention if I use it that way.

    This thing is a WEAPON! It's bright enough to wake up the dead! Probably more flash than I will ever use, but I think it will work well for the Weegee experiments -- it's larger than any camera I have.

    I used a plain 5" open reflector.

    Thanks, David. This thing has a 5" reflector so I think that will work out fine. If I had this only a few weeks ago I could have tried to emulate your H'ween shoot. I will try to use this for some people-watching shots at an affair next week.

    Did this ever actually happen? I kind of fell out of photography right during the middle of this thread, and I don't see any follow ups.

    Either way, how about a Weegee shootout `08?
