  1. I am somewhat intrigued how the two sisters interact with each other. I only have a brother so the idea of even one sister is an alien one. Perhaps it’s why I’m always noticing how different they are, and yet how relaxed they are around each other (or rather how relaxed they are for the camera…). 😉

    The third shot does have lower contrast, but you’d have to be told to look. Portra is one of the films that probably doesn’t need to be overexposed, but it handles it very well anyway. Actually it handles underexposure very well too, from what I’ve seen.

  2. Hi Peter. I have really been enjoying your posts of the Leica M2 and Nocton 40mm. And I am amazed at how quickly you have mastered developing color film. Your images reflect the same wonderful colors that you achieve with a digital camera. And both black & white and color images have an energy to them that suggests you are enjoying the M2. You continue to shoot ordinary activity and make it interesting–give it a story if you will. I also enjoy the film look to the images and what appears to be minimal processing. Thank you for sharing these.

    1. Thanks for the kind comments George! Credit for getting me up-and-running with colour film developing quickly goes to Mark (see his “developing colour film tutorial”: https://iftimestoodstill.net/color-film/ … and also his “5:45” post: https://iftimestoodstill.net/2020/08/10/545/ ).

      The credit for the “energy” (as you say) to my images goes to rangefinder shooting. For some reason, I’ve always had more success recording things with a rangefinder.
