The tail of an Aussie classic!
The Ford Falcon XW GT…
Captured at the Old Beach car show in Hobart on 12th Feb 2012 using my trusty Rolleicord V twin lens reflex dating back to 1954.
This gem of a camera shoots 120 size medium format film in 6×6 cm square format and the results are so good that although I own 30+ cameras (kinda lost count…) this is the one that I do most of my photography with!
Taken on some old stock but cold stored Fuji Superia 100 colour negative film, one which I believe is no longer available but the results speak for themselves and give me confidence about the rest of the batch that I have waiting to run through this camera…
I scanned this on a Kodak Professional PCD 4050 film scanner, a behemoth of a thing weighing in at around 120 kg…and adjustments were done on Photoshop 7.0 but were kept to an absolute minimum, dust spotting, levels and contrast etc.
I prefer to do as much in camera as possible and keep post ed to a minimum.
