Sorting out old cameras.

There are always a lot of variables in producing photographs. Shooting with very old film cameras introduces a lot more. One of the major issues is differentiating results attributable to the equipment from those that are a product of user technique. To help myself in evaluating the photos I am getting from my Kodak Recomar 18, I decided it would be useful to get some comparison shots of the same subjects with a proven performer, the Pentax Spotmatic. So, I took the Pentax to the Conservatory at the Botanic Garden and got some shots of the lilies and other plants I had made pictures of a few days ago with the old Kodak. It did prove a useful exercise, and I will have more to say about it shortly.
