What camera did you buy for £100, Mark?


Cool! My MF camera was once an old Rolleiflex TLR. Had an amazing lens.

Your photo is quite nice, but I see little detail in the shadows, which you no doubt were in full control of and intended it that way, but I shot this with my Canon 60D, which cost more than £100 of course, but while the subject in mine is far less attractive (it's a self-portrait) I prefer the tonality of my digital photo to your film image...

The background is dark to pull you to the important part which is the face, so when i took the image I put a black Lastolite 'reflector' behind the head

Canon EOS 60D, Canon EF-S 18-200 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS, 1/5s f/8.0 at 50.0mm iso3200 (handheld, reflection in a mirror)

Gordon for me your image suffers from being flat, the point of interest is lessened be seeing too much detail behind the head and the highlights are a little jot for my taste, without seeing a print it's harder to judge but it looks over sharpened (which is fine for the male subject) There is too much B/G

Just shows how tastes vary. I like that detail.
