Scaracters at Six Flags Fright Fest

Messagepar jonrev » lun. 11 novembre 2013 / 11:33 am

Last month tested a mod to correct my 250's exposure problem (dark print syndrome) so I took it to Six Flags Great America on their closing day for field testing. I simply took one of the Impossible pack filters for using 600 film in SX-70 cameras, cut a circle the size of the end of a Sharpie cap, and shoved it into the electric eye to compensate the light. The metal ribbing that surrounds the photocell holds it in nicely.

I think it's safe to say "problem solved"! L/D wheel was on norm for all except the flash pics. I've since done this procedure on a 100 and 240 as well. I also "timed" it against an accurately-exposing 420 and they sync up right after my mod.

Now onto the pics... I don't often do portraits - actually I think Fright Fest is the only time I do so - but love how these came out and wish I did this last year, too.

You should do more portraits. Did you use the portrait kit for the close ups? Did you give any prints away? I find that people really open up to portraits when you have an old Polaroid camera especially if you give them a print. I usually shoot two or recover the negative. Great idea on the SX-70 filter, I will look for one. My cameras are still within range of the L/D wheel but they will eventually creep beyond it.

Thanks. No filters were used on the lens; eventually I'll break down and get the portrait kit but for these it's fine as I kind of wanted to get some of their costumes in the shot. I kept the prints for scanning however I connected with most of the actors/actresses on Facebook, so I've sent these scans out to them.
