This is the first time I am using Adox silvermax ISO 100 film in my analog camera. This film rich with silver content so the manufacturer claim it can give more details , more sharpness and 14 stops dynamic range . I am using Minolta XE-1 with 28mm Minolta lens. I developed in Adox Silvermax developer 1+29 in 20 Celcius for 11 minutes 30 seconds . The negatives I copied with Nikkor macro lens 55 mm attached to Sony mirrorless camera and the images inverse using photoshop.
The result was very satisfyng and impressive, more dynamic range compare with another film I was using before.
The location was Pulau Putri Island, near Jakarta, Indonesia .
My visit during the Khuvsgul Lake winter festival, started from Ulaan Baatar, using ground transportation. Beautiful scenery, friendly people and memorable journey. The Leica SL built for proffesional, with rugged body, still working in harsh condition and the best medium zoom lens available
. And don’t forget it is an Autofocus lens, very accurate , can shoot action as any DSLR pro camera. Great camera !
Lunar Chinese New Year, 28th January 2017. one of the oldest Buddhist temple in Jakarta : Vihara Darma Bakti at Petak Sembilan. Two years ago this popular temple was accidentally burnt by the candles . Now the crowd came again. It was red colour everywhere: lampions, big candles, all in red. But I decided to take the pictures in monochrom, yes only in black and white with no colour.
I am using a smartphone the HuaweiP9 with Leica monochrome technology and Summarit H lens 27mm 1:2.2 Asph. Enjoy.
