Reference this original POST covering my first Shenhao exposures.
Just a quick follow-up note on my next 4 exposures on the Shenhao 617 view camera two weeks ago, always an enjoyment with the lag of getting the film in for development then tiff scans back, i.e. like opening an X-mas gift.
Four Exposure Summary: 2 Exposures focused and well exposed. 1 Exposure well exposed but people movement (walking) causing a blurred motion look as LF lenses are slow, <1/500sec – maybe okay. 1 Exposure blown-out – no clue.
Still acquiring my cadence for a view camera yet find the exposure setting (SS and Aperture) with the Pentax Spot Meter V using Ektar 100 somewhat simple when spotting on Zone 3 for shadow details and shifting 2 stops to Zone 5 with the EV number. This will change as I get challenged next up with Fujifilm Velvia 50 at four stops of light, low contrast scenes. I’m ready to get out for more exposures this long weekend. It’s a 617 weekend.
