We seem to be at work around the same time, Roger.
Beautifull sharp picture and good hazy background.
Does your story mean you are fysically going back in the darkroom?
I would have the time for that, not the patience though.

What a lovely portrait of this charming woman, Roger!
I like her red hairs against a well blurred BG, in addition to her friendly smile.
Amazing light and exposure with natural colors of the skin tones.
Can't say whether to include feet or not but overall I admire this work.
Have a nice weekend.

An excellent result from your experiment with Film camera. The 150mm lens on a Medium Format camera is excellent for portraiture and you did obtain a stunnng result!
Great warmth in the lighting producing accurate skin tones. I like the bokeh BG to render a 3D effect.

Quelle iamge et cpatage sueprbe uqel portrait de cette charmante dame fantastique compo et iamge quelle position superbe compo.
Bravo et amitié
Film presents greater challenges to photographers and admire you for trying to master the format. Digital makes me lazy and I tend to rely mostly on the technology instead of honing my photographic skills. This is a nice capture of this beautiful woman. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
To be quite honest, I think something should happen to save film photography but don't know what as it seems to be dying out. I spent many pleasant hours in the darkroom and, unlike Joop above, I would have the patience but not the time. I am talking about real B&W film photography with one's own darkroom and I am still fascinated by the work of the great masters like Alfred Stieglitz, Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Ernst Haas ... to name a few, and those great masters of portraiture Bill Brandt and Karsh of Ottawa. Thank you for bringing us some film photography. It is much appreciated.

As you know I love "reds"...Very sharp. great possture, full of cute and happy. She looks very sexy and ready to make a " Telma and louise"
Lovely portrait of Mallory,lovely warm light allied to her lovely red hair,as to you going back to film,I left it behind on September 2004 and never had an inkling to go back,I loved my darkroom days,but even using large formatt film I feel especially with the Nikon d800 it's way ahead when it comes to really large prints. I still love taking my Nikkormats and Nikon f4 out to remember the good old days.
