chair

I really like how the tones from the top of the chair on down is a smooth gradient, and how that repeats on some of the chairs in the background to varying extents. I'm really surprised by the detail you're getting from the Forty.

The camera and its lens are a good fit with the kind of surfaces in this scene. I shot at the fastest speed (1/150) and I used a cable release to minimize camera movement when I tripped the shutter. Like a lot of simple cameras, the Argoflex has a release that has kind of a rough action, and awkward placement. The fast film also helps with getting good dof as well as resonable shutter speed, and there is little grain penalty with medium format.
