Cactus Flowers exposure no. 3
Kiev 60 Arsat 80mm f2.8 +4 Hoya Close-Up Lens FujiFilm Reala ISO 100 Arista C-41 - Testing my new Kiev 60 body and my wife's flowering cactus seemed like a suitable subject. The camera is working fine, even if the operator did overexpose half the roll, forgetting to set the shutter speed. The joys of manual analog cameras. The overexposure actually worked well for this shot, adding the the vibrant color and saturation. The Reala coped well a +2 stop overexposure, but struggled and +3 and +4 stops, blocking up badly.
