First Light

The Pentax 6×7 was used on a human being. The flash was used and so was the panoramic conversion kit. 400 T-Max 35mm film, old, was used in the 120 sized film camera to take a flash picture at 1/125 of a second. A 90mm, f2.8 Leaf Shutter lens was used. A Vivitar 2800 flash unit was used. Automatic was set on the flash, Red was used. Distance was 11 feet for focus.  F4 was used. The flash was used without any panel in it, and it was pointed straight out or on 0. The lens was used on “U” for usual. The camera speed dial was put on 8. Bam.  I got a picture.

Since the film was so old, it was rated at 100 ISO on the flash to try to get more light. And since it was so light after developing two other times more time was given for development, 12 minuets in this case. That did darken the negative a little bit. More light is needed though.

Here are the results:
