Am I the only one left with a film Leica?
Moonrise over Enumclaw, WA. M7 50 Cron. 24 s exposure on Velvia.
Pair of horses in front of Mt. Rainier. The scans here were one of my firsts and were only 4 x 5 scans with lots of pp and cropping. Turned out quite "moody". 50 Con
Joe Pye weeds and Mt. Rainier. M7 28 Elmarit. 32 s exposure.
If I dind't do this right, forgive me. Still learning how to post.
My nose has been pretty cranky here lately, too.
Thanks for the compliment on the soccer shots- I was really pleased with that set!
A big +1 on Anthony's shots, too.
I should have some new pix from a night out downtown and a trip to a cemetery soon.
Very beautiful b&w there!
Maggie: I still have a film Leica...somewhere?
Anthony: Great set. I esp. like the tone, grain and her look in "Allison" and the color and subject isolation in "alleycat".
Ed: Nice work with the M7 and the velvia. The last one's my favorite. The horizontal crop's perfect.
Cindy: You've gone over to the dark side; or, is this the dark side and that's the light side?
Claire: An elegant set of B&W's. Very fine grained and a sun "etched" sharpness. The first one's my favorite with the reflection and shadow. What film is this?
(I wonder what my clients would think if i used these little animicons in my business correspondence? )
I have a roll I need to develop, but it got so curled from sitting too long on the take-up spool in the M2 that it was impossible to feed onto the developing reel. I'm letting it sit in the canister for a while.
I agree the negs are punchy, but they have great acutance and very little grain (or maybe I should say nice, smooth, grain). Did you shoot box speed? What was your Rodinal regime?
I am a big believer in the theory that there are no bad B&W films - only bad film/developer combinations. A great resource on the web for various film/developer combinations is http://www.filmdev.org/ .
Matt, I really like the set, especially the flowers. Congratulations on the new M7.
Anthony, I love the wedding baby. The colors are great. Do you scan your own Porta? I struggle with the color when I scan Porta for some reason.
Indeed, I do. I use epson4490. When I got the negative, they all look fine on the index from the 1hr lab. But when i scan them they are always off. I use color corrected and digital ice tech while scanning portra. most of them time they are still off, so correct them in photoshop. Sometimes 5-10 frames out of a roll have some dramatic color shift. Even with photoshop I am having a hard time to fix them.
not sure if that's the case, but the dramatic color shifted once are always the one in somewhat low light or shade. With the sun, it's so much better.
M7, Ilford HP5 Plus. Last week. Cheers, Matt.
New-ish pix from my 1964 Leica M2 and 1959 50mm Summilux lens, loaded with that funky private label XP2:

1st off, Thanks Cindy for kind words on the sepia shed....
I may tone the shade down a bit in future attempts...
From Last Saturday, a nice gentleman I chatted with for about 10 minutes..
We both finished a long walk at the same time, but from different paths
M5 / CV 28 f/1.9 ASPH / Tmax 100
M-5 guy: Beautiful sepias! The collapsing shed's probably my favorite.
Maggie: Always love the Scooter shots; but, "A Boy and his Dog" is great!
Cindy: Thanks! Haven't been here for a while myself.
M-5 Guy: Nice series. Makes a better "portrait" then one photo. Gives a stronger impression of the Gentlemen.
Scott: Strong image. Appropriately "gritty".
First post from a new member.
Small boy (my grandson) and a big puddle.
Thanks Cindy and Lloyd.
These shots were taken with an MP on Kodak BW400CN, minilab processed and scanned.
