The Nikonos Project: The Baseline | Leighton DaCosta, Charleston Photographer.

Still working on it, these were some test shots from my Nikonos V. I've been having some issues with double exposure, so will do a roll strictly as a land camera and see what I come up with to share. 

 Nikonos V; 28mm; Kodak MAX 400, (assumed) 1/60s - aperture priority of f/8

I like the colors of the film so far, but need to push at getting context and focus. Definitely not as easy shooting underwater as digital.

The one thing I know about shooting with new equipment is to always do a test roll first, just so that you can have a baseline, or to learn things that you wouldn't see unless you were shooting. The worst time to find out something is wrong is when you're on a shoot for a paying client.
