Pentax A3 Film Photography #4

Wow!  2 blog posts within  a week!  And both from film cameras!  

The rolls from the Voigtlander and Pentax finished at the same time; hence my almost back to back posting.

I had acquired a 'new' used lens from a work colleague.  When he heard that I had a Pentax, he gave me a few lenses that he had sitting in a box in his garage.  I went on a couple of Photo Safaris to get these shots and to trial the Pentax SMC F 28mm  f2.8-22 prime lens.  So very happy with the results!  Nice sharp photos and the depth of field at f2.8 is wonderful!

Of course, I shot in B&W with Fuji NEOPAN Acros 100, a great film with a fine grain and dynamic range; it doesn't seem to blow out the exposure in bright light (see photo below 'Dappled Light').  I have my film developed by Les Porter Photography and scanned at ProAm Colour Laboratories.

The only digital editing I do is to adjust the contrast slightly and I keep myself to performing edits that are only digital versions of darkroom methods, such as dodge and burn.

Can't believe it is the end of January already!

Hope you & yours are all well.
