    Some Maasai Warriors ( Pentax)

    Some Maasai Warriors taken in Kenya with my 135mm f2.5 SMC TAKUMAR lens on my 1973 Asahi Pentax Electro-Spotmatic camera I later sold to a fellow Camera Club member as it was the Japanese 'Home-Market'version -- film was PERUTZ C18 slide.

    This 'Maiden ' I used a small amount of fill-in flash from a Sunpak unit as she was in the deep shade. I had to use 1/60th second shutter speed of course as that was the fastest speed at which the shutter synched.

    A most interesting set, Pete. It appears you had established a trusting relationship with people to get such intimate shots. I would not want to make Masai 3 angry . Your scanning technique is better than the little bit that I have performed.

    Peter,

    You have done a lot better than I in saving your film images. Somehow, over many moves in my Navy career and later civilian life, I let most of mine get away from me. I congratulate you for your conservation of these very nice images...

    It has been a lot easier for me to conserve my digital imagery. Even with a hard-drive crash, I had backups. I really wish that digital had been the medium throughout my career!
