or… Test Run with the Horseman.
I finally got a chance to head out with the Horseman. I had to wait to get a tripod sturdy enough (thanks Kevin!). Otherwise, I was pretty much limited to wishful thinking.
The weather was not terribly cooperative, so I headed to the Garfield Park conservatory to function test, and play with the 75mm ultra-wide on the Fuji 160S (three new things at once, MADNESS).
All in all I’m pretty happy. The camera and film performed well. The tripod will need some tweaking, and will be upgraded down the line – but all good for now. A few shots below. No portfolio pieces today, I don’t think. But still fun.
100% crop from the center grotto of the above. Nice little waterfall. (man, I need a new scanner. FYI Client work is drum scanned, not done on this old thing.)
All in all – I think things worked well. A few kinks to work out. But good tools, and I like the way this film scans. Once I nail the color balance, we’ll be in good shape.
