A few more examples of what I've come to think of as my adventures in ISO 6400 - handheld night photography.

You know, it's just as well they're not called Spencer & Marks.

Bags of atmosphere - great contrast and tonal range. Crackers all.

Watcha Michael,
excellent little series, I thought M&S stood for Michael and SpacemanSmile
Was it a Bronica, most 645s have 80mm lenses, or should I say, all the ones I see advertised, the Bronica has 75mm.
What did you develop in. Back in the 60s and 70s I used to use 400 ASA, I expect it was HP5, in 35mm and wind it up to 3200 and develop it in what was called a surveillance developer, can't remember its name, they had some grain in themSmile
best
Mick

Hiya Mick, nice to hear from you. Yep, it's a Bronica I use. Just checked the lens and it's a 75mm. I developed the film in Ilford DD-X which is the most expensive developer I've ever used (£15 for a litre and it has to be used at 1:4 not the more usual 1:9). I've just bought a bottle of Ilfosol 3 which is much better value - just have to see if it's as good as the DD-X. I've really got the bug for this handheld night photography lark - but I've got to wait months for those early winter nights Smile

Cheers Mick.

Very nice set of images, I think the tonal quality is excellent on all of these, very evocative.

Thanks Andy. I find that even the drabbest of subjects can be transformed when photographed at night.

#1 is superb — the row of people at the bottom of the frame really makes it.

Re #3, I think 'operative', as a noun, is my least favourite word in the English language. It's so demeaning. An 'operator' is somebody who is active, who takes control and makes independent decisions, a human being; an 'operative' is something that is operational, merely performing its function, an automaton. When I am Supreme Ruler of the Universe, the sign will say 'Caution: workers'. We now return you to your scheduled programming, Grumpy Old Men.

Do you know, I'd never even noticed that word until you mentioned it. You're entirely correct.
