Ari the human lightmeter

So I finally got the film back from my first attempt at actually shooting with the Rolleicord. I have no lightmeter and neither does the Rollei, so you have to use the magic guidelines stamped onto the back of the camera and your imagination.  I was somewhat shocked that the pictures came back in any sort of serviceable condition, but I’ll take it. I shot one roll of Neopan 400 and since this is 120 film, it only has 12 shots per roll. Here’s the first – I think maybe there are one or two more worth showing off. I didn’t write it down as I’m a spoiled digital photographer but I believe the exposure here is something like f/5.6 at 1/100th of a second. I didn’t realize how shallow it would come out looking, but combined with the sparse tree limbs and the great angles you can get with Twin Lens Reflex cameras, I like this one a lot.
