Kodak Instamatic circa 1980. Seems I've always had an eye for boring photographs.

Perhaps I have weird tastes but i find this photo interesting in a strange kinda way.

It reminds me of some of the work of a local MF 6x6 pro photographer ..... he’s no longer with us but left behind many simple and uncomplicated images such as this.

Anyone old enough to remember the Honda C50, one of the best bikes Honda made for city travel and could take a pillion as well....well I had two many moons ago and nearly bought one at the bootie a couple of years ago as it would have been great just poodling along country lanes looking for nice subjects to photo (ATM use a Honda 250 rebel). The guy wanted £100 but didn't trust him (instinct) as it could have been stolen.

It's a bit 'Raymond Moore'. Although I don't think I knew of his work at the time - or maybe I had seen it somewhere and it seeped in to my subconscious.

I bought one of these when I was about 15, we used to ride it round the local gravel pit, I think that’s where it ended up :(

This is what happens when you think you've used mirror lock up on one shot, but have actually used the multiple exposure lever by mistake and not noticed it till several shots later. The signal box now looks like a location in Stephen King's The Mist, covered in weired massive cobwebs and overgrwon with foliage. :)

It's actually turned out far better than what I was expecting, which was a completely overexposed and ruined frame.

Yes, they were definitely a 'coming soon to a bit of waste ground near you' type bike for teenagers once they failed their MOT. The one I used to whizz round a field on was the 70cc version though, those engines had a certain smell to them when they got hot. :) I learned to drive a car in an MOT failure Austin 1100, up and down a disused railway line on a friends farm. Happy days.

Would it have been the C90, 90cc? The C50 was the 50cc and had amazing power from a small engine as with a pillion you could drive around..well dunno about hills.

It was a long time ago now, but I'm pretty sure it was a C70 step thu moped in maroon and cream.
You are right there are many types from the beginning when there was just c50 andd c90 (erm my dodgy memory) even on the net there is one now at 125cc...over 1 million super cubs sold around the world. And another miss for the British motorcycle manufacturers to be the first.

Not the most successful photo, but a nice looking bike in its day (not mine, I hasten to add!). Part of my learning curve as a 16 year old, think what you're doing when using slide film in contrasty light. It obviously didn't stay with me as I still make the same exposure mistakes... hmm, shiny... click! :facepalm:

One of my first proper motorbikes thanks for sharing this brought some brilliant memories back for me :)

Mamiya C330s, Fomapan 100, processed in a Lab-Box using Cinestill DF96 Monobath. Completely forgot about the parallax error when using the C330 close up.

Yeah, I do that all the time, basically it's usually half a roll of the same shots just higher up the frame

The Yashica TLR close-up converter lenses adjust for parallax error, so I don't get caught out on the few occasions I use those.

The Voigtlander Superb TLR has built in parallax adjustment, the taking lens tilts the closer you focus, advanced technology for 1933.

Tried 15 frames and CUT an outdated Fuji NPS 160 i was sent with a lot of film from a member of Pentax User Site, Usually the film had NOT been stored well. This one came out a bit 'dense' after downrating it to 100 ASA so could have used 'Box Speed' == however, the photos have a weird 'Reticulation' effect on them.

You get some cracking close up shots with that C330f Andy.
I had one for a short while but couldn’t get on with it although I did like the mechanics of the camera. I never attempted to shoot images close up.
I’m thinking that you possibly find close up work easier with the Mamiya than with LF kit ?

Yes, definitely. I've always found the Mamiya an easy camera to get on with (apart from remembering about parallax correction...:thinking:) an the lens are superb as well. I don't have any LF lenses that focus too close so I have to crop to get anything like the same as I get with the Mamiya so there's not really any point in wasting expensive sheets.

Been struggling for motivation during lock down, like a lot of folks on here.

Decided to try out photographing content closer to hand i.e back garden.

This is my favourite from a roll of Portra 400 shot on one of my Nikon F3's with a Nikkor 128mm f2.8 Marco. Shot on a tripod with an ND8 filter as sun made a (temporary) guest appearance.

Why did you want to use a 'Neutral Density Filter' for those Subjects ?

I wanted better control over shutter speed without compromising DOF. The plant shot was entirely back lit by a very bright mid afternoon sun, and was westerly facing.

For the Arundel Castle shot it was on reflection not necessary as the 35mm lens was stopped right down. I took 4 other shots with differing apertures, and they were all a lot more washed out than this one.
