Rolleiflex 2.8F – Decouple or not

Fortunately I’m a Rolleiflex 2.8F camera owner. Unfortunately the selenium meter is not working proparly. Therefore I could only use the 2.8 aperture. The aperture 2.8 indeed does a pretty good job with a certain amount of sharpening in post production. Though i’ve decided to have aperture, and shutter speed decoupled at a repairman cause sometimes you want to use smaller apertures e.g. on sport photography 🙂 By the way this is the last photo with aperture, speed coupled lightmeter restrictions.

Here is a simple clue about my retouching process made in photoshop:

Highpass filter with overlay for sharpening, level adjustment layer for contrast, and some layer masking to ensure not to have the background sharpened.
