July 12 - Kodak Brownie Day - Get Ready For a Blast From The Past
To celebrate this birthday I am inviting or readers to set their digital cameras as follows:
ISO as low as possible - 50-100 is fine.
Aperture at f:11 in manual mode.
Shutter speed at 1/25 of a second in manual mode.
jpeg. sRGB. Basic quality.
Monochrome setting, if possible. You can make it sepia if you wish.
Aspect ratio - 1:1 if possible.
Manual focus set at 10 feet.
Now go out and take 12 pictures. 12 only, ' film ' is expensive...
Do NOT review the pictures on the LCD screen - just go on from 1 to 2 to 3 and so on. Bring them back to your computer and display them out at 56mm x 56mm. No cheating - no photoshopping - no HDR - no plug-ins. Your first 12 pictures just as they come.
Show us the results. You have just used your own Kodak No.1 Brownie (Digital Division) and if you have used it correctly you should have pictures of your family and the school fete and possibly Mundaring Weir. With luck they will be squinting into the sun. And very slightly blurred. Sun hats will be a bonus.
I'll try to feature the best on this blog.
