Enter the M

With everyone getting new bodies, I think that separate section for you to proudly display your first image from your new acquisition is in order.

This applies to brand new bodies, as well as bodies that are simply newly acquired by you.

Enter the M

I was debating where to put this, but I thought this would be the most appropriate place as these images have come off the first roll of film (Kodak Ektar 100) from my M3 (double stroke). Unfortunately the 50mm Elmar that is pictured here is not currently usable so these images have been taken using a borrowed Zeiss 50mm f/1.5.

You will have to excuse the bad photos as I am still getting used to rangefinder focus and I did spend a lot of time double guessing myself for exposures (yes I am going sans-meter)

Thanks Gerry!! hopefully when the camera comes back I will be able to put another roll through it.

Sadly the Zeiss had to be returned to its owner....maybe I will have a "soft look" Leitz Elmar 50mm f/2.8 when the camera comes back

I also like the first.

Two or three lights, any lens on a light-tight box are sufficient for the realisation of the most convincing image. Man Ray 1935.
