Providence Stroll 9/2/22

I took my dogs for a walk in downtown Providence yesterday and once again used my old Zeiss Super Ikonta folder. This time I tried it with a yellow filter hoping to get a bit more contrast. The more I dive into film, the more I learn there are many facets to the character of an image aside from the camera and film, especially the manner of development of the film. Again, I employed the lazy man’s development method of semi-stand development in Rodinal. Using this film and development method, there is pronounced grain and it appears there is some bromide drag in one shot. I was hoping I did well to capture the young woman who posed for me. I wish I had gotten in closer. And I wish I had the courage to take a few more shots in different poses. When I take impromptu portraits like this, I am nervous and I have to learn to engage more and perhaps take another image or two. She was very nice and I promised to send her the picture. I like shooting with this camera. The only niggle is the viewfinder is small and hard to manage with my glasses on.
