Brentwood & District Photographic Club have an On-line Photo Comp next week for 'B&W A Kitchen Utensil' so I had a go on Kitchen Table with 2 old tungsten lamps and kitchen lights on and a blue cloth background. Camera was my original Asahi Pentax 6x7 MU and FILM was 'Gift' Feb. 1995 dated ILFORD XP2 400 which I processd in well-used C41 and scanned with CANON 9000F Mk II + Vuescan Pro + FastStone Image Viewer. Metered by Weston Master V FILM was a Kind GIFT fro ma Forum Member !

We're clearly living in very different households, Peter. The cake would not have been on the plate long enough for me to photograph it !

I hope you're managing okay in these topsy turvy times. Good to see you still posting here and on YouTube. I enjoy the videos very much and sometimes it feels like I'm sat in your front room whilst you're demonstrating kit

Getting older and grumpier. Taking longer to decide which lens to use today.

Perhaps I need to speak to someone but I like the loo brush!

Perhaps you do - I thought it was a brush to clean plates

The Cake shot for me as well

I noticed a few odd sort of blotches at the top of the cake image, a couple are also on the teapot image in the same sort of place, does the lens or scanner need a bit of a clean perhaps ?

Another for the cake shot, having the word cake in the foreground and so clear just draws the eyes
C&C welcome.

Well -- I'm out of Hospital with a huge semi-circular glued SCAR after Liver Cancer Lesions cut out - the 4th time I have been 'Opened Up' ! SO - very sore but yesterday spent time lubricating ME Super with 'Winder Failure Syndrome' and got it to work. and new Mirror Bumper foam on a 'Gift' ME body and did the moving lens aperture activating ring so lens now stops down !! YES-- I saw the 'Blotches' -- i think is from Bad Storage of the 1995 Ilford XP2 400 sent to me by a fellow Forum Member . On processing the negs had 'Greening' effect due to storage but got rid of it on de-saturation to B&W in FastStone IMage Viewer. I had scanned as 'Colour' .
