Triptych - Youth and Humor

Youth and Humor
Nikon Df, Nikkor 85mm f1.8 AF-S Lens
I accompanied my friend, Charles Arnhold, to one of his regular haunts this weekend. Charlie is doing a project on the place, Cafe Amouri, in Vienna, Virginia. (Click Here) to check out the cafe's website. Great coffee.
These are Charlie's friends, Anna and Jayna, having a little fun on the sidelines.

Mixing Digital and Film - Melissa Wright's Tribute to Patsy Cline

Some of my good friends, Melissa Wright, Danny Zezeski, Rudy B., Dwayne Brooke, and Evan (a new acquaintance) put on an amazing tribute to Patsy Cline a couple of weeks back. I shot my Nikon Df (digital) and FM (film). I had my AIS 50mm f1.2 lens on the FM, and loaded it up with Ilford Delta 3200 film. I also processed the digital images with settings to emulate the Delta 3200 look.
Here's a film shot:
That's what an f1.2 lens is for...
And here's an example of a digital example:

World Pinhole Day 2016

Tree Triptych, by Reed A. George
Reality So Subtle 6x17 Panoramic Pinhole Camera
Kodak TMax 100 Black and White Negative Film
April 24, 2016 was World Pinhole Day (WPD). Here's the shot I submitted.
I inadvertently made it a triptych (series of three images) by improperly loading my film behind the two posts (vertical black stripes) instead of in front of them. I like it, though.

Can I Eat Him, Mom? Can I?

Rollei 35, 40mm f3.5 Tessar Lens
Kodak TMax 400 Film
I have a thing for Rollei cameras. My latest is the tiny little Rollei 35, a guess-focus camera with a jewel of a Tessar lens (collapsible). It has a meter, but no provisions for focusing. Seems I guessed the distance pretty well in this shot.
