A dreamy black and white photo of a path through a wooded area with tangles of trees and fallen branches along it. A small border collie mix pup is in the distance in soft focus and running towards the camera. Taken with my Nikon F3 HP using a Tokina 35-105mm lens and black and white Ilford 400 HP film.
All of these images were taken with my Bilora Box camera which is a medium format camera produced in Germany. Mine is probably from the 1940s. It takes 6 x 9 cm images on 120 roll film. The shutter speed is 1/50 and, without a tripod as I was when I took these, it's basically impossible to get a steady image. So these photos all look like they are from the early 1900s to me. However, I took them in 2015.
Taken with my Nikon F3 HP using a Tokina 35-105 mm lens, tripod, with the shutter on a timer, f/8, 1/125
Ilford HP Plus 400 bw film.
Black and white photo of a pond taken from a low angle. The pond has thin ice around the edges and where the ice has melted, trees surrounding the pond are clearly reflected in the water. Some ice meanders in towards the center of the pond and is in soft focus. The only clear focus is in the center of the pond. Trees on the opposite bank are evergreens and some bare hardwoods. The light through the trees is grey-white.
Taken with my Nikon F3 HP using a Nikon 25-50mm lens at f/4, 1/8 and Ilford HP Plus BW 400 film. I was surprised that the pond reflection came out so clearly because I did not use a tripod although the shutter speed was slow. I leaned against a tree to hold it steadily. 😁🌳
Photo taken with my Nikon F3 HP; Tokina 35-105mm lens, f/3.5, 1/4; a tripod and timed shutter release; Ilford HP Plus 400 film.
