100 percent by coxi 100 percent by coxi
i'm usually patient enough to print a negative, then scan and maybe submit... but in the end it doesn't really matter on a 950x633 pixel surface if that thing is a fiber print or a negscan.

a shot from berlin. been there with my better half for about 10 days in november. if i find the motivation, i'll post a blog entry tomorrow.

35 summicron-M, leica M6, i think this was 2.8 1/60th, tri-x in xtol 1:1 20,5C° 10min agiation 10s, 20s break.

oh and it says "100% aufmerksamkeit für ihr haar" which means something like "100% interest for your hair"

definitely 100% attention here.. if escher was a streetshooter, he'd probably have taken this one too ;)

Arh, ich glotze jetzt schon zwei Tage - wenn auch nicht ununterbrochen - auf das Bild und checke nicht, wer hier wen wie aufgenommen hat. :-?

20,5 und 10min heißt du hast ihn wie belichtet? 1600? schon ewig nicht mehr gepusht, aber jetzt im winter wirds sicher wieder bald soweit sein... blogeintrag gefällt mir gut, ist nur immer so viel dass es schwer ist auf einzelnes einzugehen.

was weiß ich wie viel iso das dann entspricht. ich glaube nicht an die perfekte entwicklung. die 9min 20C° mach ich schon lange nicht mehr. die negative sind mir dann zu kontrastlos.

ich belichte ansich immer auf 400 und werde da wohl auch teilweise bei 200 und 800 landen bei so manch streetshot. wichtig ist mir der generelle look. ich pushe wohl ein wenig aber das ist in sw für mich kein problem, gefällt mir so besser.

auch den plus-x mach ich oft bei 21C° und 8:30-45 statt 8:15. gerade im winter hat man schnell ne graue suppe. deshalb die längere entwicklung.

die 10min sind aber auch beim trix die obere grenze. normal mach ich 9min 20-30sek bei 21C°. im sommer werd ich vielleicht wieder anders entwickeln.. aber im sommer schieß ich kaum trix und wenn dann bei nacht und da kann ich wieder etwas pushen.

ich denke es ist wichtiger konstant zu belichten und nicht absichtlich unter oder über. das mache ich schon lange nicht mehr. mein iso rad ist immer da wo auch der film es am liebsten hat. besser mehr licht als mehr entwicklung ist mein motto.

ok alles klar... scheinst ein gutes gefühl dafür entwickelt zu haben... hmmm ja ich mach immer 20C und 9min... belicht dafür recht großzügig. aber auch öfters etwas flau... naja muss eh jeder seine brühe brühen und weg finden...

Severin, I can't remember if i've asked this before but which version of the summicron are you using? I'm in the market for a Leica lens and the summicron (used market) range is the only one I can afford right now.

Cant stop looking at this one. I believe I still dont know how and what. :]

I'm wondering, why Xtol and no D76 or Tmax? Using D76 (normally) results in more grain, that could be the reason. I'm just starting to shoot with Tri-X and I might start processing my film this December.

d76 produces a different look. i think it looks more 50s, bresson times you know. i'm using xtol mainly for the sharpeness. i use the 35/2 mostly at 2.8-5.6 because when i print, i want to have details. it's different when you shoot digital because you can never print with that resolution..

if you print your negs on 12x16, 16x20 prints you'll know why it's great to see all the little structures and details. when i develope with d76 i lose some of that but with xtol you lose some grey values but that's able to recover in the print process, sharpeness isn't.

The third reflection of the photographer surprised me, at first, then the mirror image of the 100% logo on his coverings made this frame an instant fav. Great capture!
