Tag: Isolette III
I finally got around to finishing off a roll of Ektar 100 using the Agfa Isolette ii rangefinder camera. Square composition is a bit difficult!
Another medium format image using the Agfa Isolette iii. In reading about the 6×6 or square format for photography, the approaches recommend playing to the symmetry of the square by using circles, equal areas, and centering of the central point of the image. Didn’t do that here . . . maybe I should revisit this rather large plant?
It is a lot harder to focus – and stay focused – with this all-manual camera, too! I should have focused on the center of the stems . . .
About a week ago I took delivery of an Agfa Isolette III, refurbished and CLA’d. It came with me to Colorado, and film went through the x-ray machine a few times. I didn’t take a lot of pictures with it, but did do two rolls, one of Portra 400, and one Ektar 100. Altogether, the pictures were ok, but part of it is simply learning how to use a new camera. A few I really liked – this is not one of them – but I did like the leaves on the water and the colors which resulted. Next time, I will drop the iso 20-30% for greater saturation with negative film.
