All Pictures were taken with a Pentax k1000 using Ilford 400 Black and White film and a 55mm f/2 Pentax prime lens. I must apologize as I didn’t write down the settings I used. I first metered the shoot as I would take it with my Canon 50D at 400 ISO and then duplicated the setting on the Pentax but didn’t think to take notes. The digital scans were adjusted some in Lightroom for brightness and contrast but if there are some unspoken rules about not editing your film scans in post, complain to someone else.
The family and I just got back from our vacation to the Davis Mountains. The Davis Mountains State Park is located in West Texas about an hour and a half southwest of Fort Stockton and just north of Big Bend country. It’s literally a different world out there, isolated from just about everything and everyone. The coolest part while we were out there was the Star Party at the McDonald Observatory. It made the entire vacation. I highly recommend it if you are into Astronomy. Unfortunately, given the nature of the event, no pictures. However, I did manage to get in a few good shoots while we were there.
