The 2019 shooting year has officially begun for me with the completion of Project 1: Nicole. I used a Nikon F4 loaded with Ilford HP5+ and a Nikon F2 loaded with Ilford FP4+. I recently purchased a Helios 44-2 58mm f/2 and used that on each camera. The F4’s meter works find so I used that to meter all HP5+ shots, however the F2’s meter is busted so I used the Lightwheel Meter app on my iPhone to meter the FP4+.
I am very pleased with the results I got from this first project of the year. Project 2 is already in the planning phase and should be shot sometime in April. I’m undecided yet as to which camera I will use since both performed admirably. Perhaps I should throw the Nikon F100 in the mix just to make it more interesting.
As always, let me know what you think. I’m always glad to hear your thoughts.
