Changing things up...

Postby Merc1107 » Fri Nov 25, 2016 5:28 pm

Undoubtedly, some members may have been privy to the selection I am about to post. For those who have not seen the latest developments (pun intended), here's a small selection from the two rolls of Fujicolor Industrial 400 that I recently had developed.

One thing is certain, it seems a bright day in late-spring here in Perth requires reducing exposure by about 1 stop on top of your "Sunny 16" rule. Once I have exhausted the present supply of 400-speed film, I'll graduate to something a touch less sensitive.

Renaults were once again a "continuing theme" on these two rolls, with sWAn's 707, 718 & 730, in addition to Transdev's 735 and PATH's 711 & 727 committed.

sWAn's O405NH '1303' also found her way onto my exposures!

A couple other "odds and ends" were also photographed, as seen below.

A common sight along Discovery Way (Murdoch) is Volvo B7 "Optimus" 2497, operated by sWAn transit

sWAn's 1645 pictured along Discovery Way, all zeroes after running a "20x" service. Usually one of the "trifecta" of services to the University are operated by the OC-gassie.

All images pictured were taken according to the "Sunny 16" rule. Some are still a tad over-done, despite the camera's light meter suggesting underexposure by around 2 stops. With our particularly sunny weather, I think I'll need to tweak my exposures by around a half to a full stop.

Of course, the film I'm using takes 36 exposures, but not all of them were "post worthy" here on the ATDB, nor relevant to buses, even!
