Well, I have updated the design of my blog to include a genuine banner. The above shot is part of it, but those of you following the feed should check the home page out.
Thanks to my DSW for some Photoshop help to tweak the lighting, color, and shadows. She wanted to be sure the glory of our jalapeño pepper green kitchen wall came through in force.
You may recognize some of the cameras from a number of my previous posts. The complete rundown front to back is:
- Rollei B 35 – I carry this almost everywhere these days
- Canon IV-S – sadly the shutter is still full of leaks
- Petri 7S – also sadly, its film advance is stuck again
- Kine Exakta – I haven’t even tried this yet, its shutter controls are a bit daunting
- Nikomat FTN – my workhorse SLR for shooting B&W
- Nikon FA – The most advanced manual Nikon ever made
- Nikon F100 – My main film camera until recently
- Nikon F6 – My new king of the hill
How did I order them? Not by age, nor purely by size.
They are arguably ordered by technical features as you start with the viewfinder Rollei and proceed to add a rangefinder, average metering, single-lens reflex, center-weighted metering, matrix metering, autofocus, and finally color matrix metering.
I might have ordered a few of them differently, but in the end I think this made for the best looking shot.
