I find that the best shots I take tend to be portraits with my Rolleiflex planar 2.8 e. Firstly, it’s because I like taking portraits, and secondly, people don’t mind my taking their photos with it. Finally, I like the old-style portraits. I used the Kodak Portra 160 film in these shots.
Very nice portraits, I see you are enjoying your new toy. I tried Fujicolor Portrait film 160NPS, and the colours were amazing, wonder what images you could get with your new camera! Have fun.
Thank you, yes am trying to enjoy it, but it’s quite difficult here, people don’t speak English! It hard to ask for there portraits! I have tried fujicolor expired in the Yashica and got great result, will try it with rolliefelx and will post about it.
I absolutely love those portraits. They seem like really nice people. I am glad you are enjoying the camera. I agree on portraits and medium format, I feel it is made for portraits.
Thanks Shayma, yes I was surprised they said yes, we should get together and do a medium format photo walk : )
I really would love to do that 🙂
My Fav is the second shot.
waiting more of this legendary camera:)
Thanks, in shallah I will : )
