The pictures I am showing you today were shot last week while exploring Egia and Jaialai. I already posted pictures taken with the Isolette on the same day. The Isolette pictures were slightly overexposed – not sure whether it was the development or the exposure since it was the first roll of T-Max I developed with Tetenal Ultrafin. At the same time the Zorki pictures were slightly underexposed as happens to me often on cloudy days, because I don’t want to shoot below f/8 and usually keep the shutter speed at 1/500. The latter seems the most accurate shutter speed on my Zorki. Maybe next time I shoot on a cloudy day I’ll try whether 1/250 is still a little sticky like it used to be. No compromises on the f/8 though: The Soviet lenses just get so soft with wider apertures. By the way, slightly overexposed is usually ok on film, as long as you don’t blow essential highlights. Underexposing film is more of a problem, because loss of shadow detail happens very quickly.

All pictures taken with: Zorki 4K and Jupiter 12 35mm f/2.8.
Kentmere 400 developed in Tetenal Ultrafin 1:20, 16min.

He was resting on his steering wheel. Or crying. Who knows.

This one was tricky, very dark and very light elements. Probably a case for Adox Silvermax, which I still haven’t been able to get hold of anywhere in Spain. Seems nobody imports Adox products there.
