Thunderhead Originally uploaded by kavandje

YashicaMat 124 6×6 medium format camera; Rollei Retro 100 film; hand-held Cokin red filter; f/32 @ 1/15 sec; developed in Ilford Ilfotec HC 1+31.

I had forgotten how nice it is to photograph with a deep red filter; it really adds to the tone, especially in the harsh light in Namibia.

I want a real red filter for this camera, and a proper light meter. The latter had been ordered; the former must wait. In the meantime I think I might fab up some weird contraption featuring some rubber bands and duct tape.
