Myself, Sandra, Lynette, and Michelle took the train from Solana Beach up to San Juan Capistrano and back on Monday, December 12, 2016. The train station is very close to the Mission so it was an easy day and just perfect weather. I took several photo’s with my Canon G7X camera.

Talked to this woman who was doing an oil painting. Turns out she was born in Minneapolis just like me. Small world.

I started doing some testing with the 4 x 5 View camera last night. This was the best image from the 6 I took. Taken at sundown. Lens was a Schneider Symmar-S 180mm. Exposure was 12 seconds at F/8. Film is Ilford Delta 100 (iso 100). I used 3 filters, a #8 yellow, a 2 stop split neutral density, and a 6 stop neutral density. Negative developed in Ilford DDX and scanned on an Epson V800 flat bed scanner then processed in Nik Silver Efex Pro.

Located on the University of California San Diego Campus. Photo taken about 1/2 hour after sundown. 5 Exposure HDR image processed in Lightroom and Nik Color Efex Pro. I was hoping for better light under the clouds after sundown but not so lucky.
