    First rolls of film back. It's a humbling experience for a pixel peeper with an M9. A reminder that photography is more then resolution and sharpness. The PP is also quite different. Here's a few from the first roll. These were taken in front of my office (a place I've stalked with the M9). M7, 50mm Summilux-M f/1.4, Ilford HP5 Plus. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt.

    Steve and Matt, She is isn't she? She spent most of her life as a "shelf queen". I've put her to work, but she is still lovely.

    Matt, I really like all of these. The photo of the "Teak Bird" is an example of why I love film so much. The tones are just wonderful.

    Gorgeous stuff, Matt!! I concur with Cindy on the Teak Bird photo- fabbo tones!! One of them looks a bit like a platinum print, too. Yum!

    Here's a couple of critter shots from the M4-P/Jupiter-8:

    Scooter On The Chillin' Couch, April, 2010

    I'm not sure why exactly, but that photo makes me think of 1970's fashion photos.

    At The Back Door, April, 2010


    Shot on "ShurFine 400" film (made in Japan; Fuji something?), processed and scanned at the nearest Walgreens, tweaked in Lightzone.

    Maggie: Thanks. These "critter" OCP's are really nice the IQ and color of that first one is exceptional. Great! It is sort of a "Vogue" photo. One of the things that I'm trying to figure out is how to be true to the characteristics of the film.

    Cheers, Matt

    Matt, it certainly is a different palette to paint on. Very distinct look & feel. Well you get an A+ for your first few days on the job! A lot of favorites here for me but the one that stands out is the B&W Tulips shot! Super Job! Looking forward to more...

    Matt, what's "OPC?"

    Oh, and does Seattle actually have a heroic statue of Lenin?

    Here's a few more shots from the M4-P, again with the Jupiter-8, the ISO 400 ShurFine film and a Walgreens' scan:

    Steve: Thanks. It is quite different then shooting digital. Less opportunity to "fix" in PP. This was an hour walk outside my office door. I'll keep working on it. Cheers, Matt.

    Maggie: "OCP" means "Obligatory Cat Photos". I have a folder of some of mine on my Zenfolio site (also, ODP folder). How could you not photograph your cat?

    These are really nice. I'm going to check out my Walgreen's today. Great portrait of your dad. The PP on all of these is very nice. Don't you have critters that eat the Koi? Thanks for sharing.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    Matt, You, Steve and Maggie are really putting some energy into this thread! I can't pick a favorite, there are so many. I do like the reflection window...I guess you got a surprise there.

    Maggie, Your photos of your Dad are really special. I can see the bond between the two of you reflected in the photos.

    I get my 35mm developed at my Walgreens. I send my 120 off to a lab. I can see the difference in the cleanliness of the film. I have to do more cleanup work on the Walgreens. I guess it depends on who is operating the equipment at your local Walgreens. The scans from my Walgreens were over-sharpened so I had to move to my own scanner....but scanning can be a PITA.

    Ah OCP! Of course!

    Thanks, Matt. The scans from Walgreens aren't the greatest- they're small-ish .jpgs that, like Cindy says, are over-sharpened. I've had to massage all of them quite a bit in LightZone or iPhoto to get them close to something that I think looks good. I've got a bunch of black and white film that I need to develop and then I guess I should get my scanner out of storage and fire it up, too. There's so much more work to bring film photos to an audience, isn't it?

    Oh, and the koi pond isn't at my house, it's in the neighborhood, backing into the commons where I walk the dog. So, no worries about Bob or Scooter getting after the fish and the dog has no interest in them!

    Maggie: Definitely more work! I took a roll into Walgreen's this afternoon. The scans, as you say are smallish. I'm going to run some of them through my scanner and see what I get. You could think of them as a digital contact sheet. $7 for develop and scan in 1 hr. is hard to beat. The important thing is the negative.

    I forgot to answer you question about the Lenin statue. I guess when the "iron curtain" fell they were cheap. Someone brought it over here to stand in the "People's Commune of Fremont" (Fremont Neighborhood in Seattle; home of Adobe). Now, I think they call themselves the "Center of the Universe". I live one neighborhood to the East.

    Cheers, Matt

    Matt, 2 cool shots & the tone is appropriate. Im still trying to understand & swallow the "Lenin" statue on US soil?! Any resistance to this that you know of? Very interesting & of course shot well!

    Steve: Thanks. Nope, no comments that i know of. Although, it's been around for a while. Think of it as a (cold) war souvenir. Like the german helmet my grandfather brought back from WWI.

    I've been scanning like crazy. I think that i've perhaps got the process down. Unfortunately the VP 750 comes with the wrong version of Silverfast Ai. You need their Silverfast Ai Studio Multiexposure ($180) upgrade. It does the same as multi-sampling in a lot less time. I bought it last night. I scanned some frames at 8x multi-sampling, 3200 dpi, and did multiexposure at the same size. The multi sampling took all day! I'm going to compare them tonight side by side.

    The Plustek 7600Ai looks pretty good. Although, it isn't available anywhere. The main disadvantage IMHO is that you can't do unattended batch scans (24 frames at a time) like you can with the Epson.

    Cheers,
    Matt

    Matt, I'm not usually a fan of Velvia, but #2 is very nice. I like the way the boats are framed and I love the texture and color of the archway.

    Helen, I like the way the soap has added interest to the window-washer shot. You look marvelous with your friend.

    Here's another film experiment. A bit of everything. No theme!

    M7, 24mm f/1.4 lens, Fujichrome Provia 400x E6 film. Lloyd said this was better then Velvia and I agree. Also, found a lab in town that did these in one day: processed and scanned at 19 mb tifs. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    Helen -- I love love love the window washer shot! Really nice. I also see you have been taking part in one of my favorite pastimes -- hanging out with models.

    Matt -- nice work with the 400x. I also like the color palette better than velvia. It is a great film -- I just recently posted some pushed to 1600 in the other film thread...it really maintains its colors and saturation well. For the record, Provia 100F has a similar (identical?) color palette, so if you are not into Velvia, you can always get this film in a 100 speed as well....
    As for doing the film in one day -- you are lucky. Now that I am working as a lab, I understand how hard that can be to do! When I was in Santa Barbara they would turn around E6 in 2.5 to 3 hours! I can't even imagine being able to do that. When I process it myself it takes me an hour or so just to get the film from the reel to the drying cabinet. (Then again, this is with a Jobo, not an automated E6 machine).
    My photos are here: http://www.stuartrichardson.com and more recent work here: http://stuartrichardson.tumblr.com/ Please have a look at my book!
    My lab is here: http://www.customphotolab.is and on facebook

    Matt, I like these colors. I will have to step out of my Ektar comfort level and give this film a try. #3 and #4 are just fantastic! The greens (as in #2) are what usually bother me with Velvia. They look really good (to my eye, YMMV) in your #2 shot.
    How lucky you are to have a lab that will turn around an E6 develop and scan in one day. I can get my 35mm C41 film back in one hour from my Walgreens ($2.19 for develop only), but then the labor intensive scan part starts. We have no local lab in my town, so mailing in E6 and 120 of all flavors is required.

For the record, Provia 100F has a similar (identical?) color palette, so if you are not into Velvia, you can always get this film in a 100 speed as well....
    As for doing the film in one day -- you are lucky. Now that I am working as a lab, I understand how hard that can be to do! When I was in Santa Barbara they would turn around E6 in 2.5 to 3 hours! I can't even imagine being able to do that. When I process it myself it takes me an hour or so just to get the film from the reel to the drying cabinet. (Then again, this is with a Jobo, not an automated E6 machine).
    Stuart: Thanks. As i noted, I'm working my way through color and B&W film and trying different labs. So far, I like Provia and the lab in Seattle. I'll see how they do with B&W. I used to develop my own film (25 years ago!). I hate to admit it (not the PC thing), but digital has spoiled me. I'll get some Provia 100 and try it. My next color film to try is Kodak Portra 800.

    BTW, your photos in the other analog thread are fantastic! I'll have to make that part of my GetDPI circuit. Hope you're staying out of the volcano's way?

    Cindy: Thank you. I like this film a lot. My first rolls, I mailed to California. I'd rather drive up the street if the quality is there. The scans at Walgreen's were quite small. This new lab will do 20mb TIF's. I haven't found anybody that will do scans larger then that as a standard process?

    I loved Helen's pix over at Flickr- they're great!

    Matt, I think I'm going to have to find a lab here in Lincoln that'll do what your lab is doing! Those photos look great! Great use of color as a compositional element.

You need their Silverfast Ai Studio Multiexposure ($180) upgrade. It does the same as multi-sampling in a lot less time. I bought it last night. I scanned some frames at 8x multi-sampling, 3200 dpi, and did multiexposure at the same size. The multi sampling took all day! I'm going to compare them tonight side by side.

    The Plustek 7600Ai looks pretty good. Although, it isn't available anywhere. The main disadvantage IMHO is that you can't do unattended batch scans (24 frames at a time) like you can with the Epson.

    Cheers,
    Matt

    Thanks for the history lesson on Vladimir Ilyich! I get it now..

    So what your telling me is the Epson 750 is 180 more for the proper software...Oy!

    Took a walk in Georgetown, Washington DC, with a Leica M6. All images were taken by Elmar 50/2.8 (Fuji Velvia 50).

    I bought the Epson V700. Check it out. I think the hardware differences are minor. It comes with Silverfast...so if you are going to have to upgrade the software anyway...

    Very, very nice. I like the rendering of the Elmar.

    Here's a couple of critter shots from the M4-P/Jupiter-8:

    Scooter On The Chillin' Couch, April, 2010

    I'm not sure why exactly, but that photo makes me think of 1970's fashion photos.

    At The Back Door, April, 2010


    Shot on "ShurFine 400" film (made in Japan; Fuji something?), processed and scanned at the nearest Walgreens, tweaked in Lightzone.
    Scooter owes you one

    Matt, I sometimes love velvia and sometimes I just cannot bear it. You and your lab seem to be doing ok with it.
