    Very nice. I particularly like the tractor shot.

    slowly but surely I'm gaining on the film thing. And I do mean slowly. Souped a couple rolls in my kitchen sink today and realized that I can actually count on the film/camera/exposure/development. I know that sounds crazy, but it has made me nervous to take the camera to something that I wanted to be "sure" of. Hey, what the heck, baby steps.

    I know exactly what you mean... and yes, looking at this, you can indeed "count on" those elements. Very nice, Tim.

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Thanks Cindy. I'm still determined although I think I need to get the negs into an enlarger. The scanning/digitizing adds a confusing wrinkle and makes it hard for me to judge how my negs are really looking. I know for sure I'm getting some extra density along the edges of the film. Winding too tight or agitation or both I think. And it doesn't take long to push the grain into view when using curves, etc. in PS. So I think I need a trip to the darkroom to make some paper prints.

    A couple more.

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Nice shots Tim -- I think you will enjoy getting back in the darkroom -- there is nothing quite like a purely analog workflow.

    Viablex -- that 43mm lens is really something, isn't it?

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    hello, I've been trying film (I have been doing digital-only for about 5 years) so: bought Neopan 100 (the only b&w here).

    Please tell me what you think as I have no idea what I am doing.

    developed in the local shop & I scanned it in a flatbed hp g4050.

    shot with R9& 15/2.8

    Hi gero,
    It is nice to see you here. I am no expert, but when I scan my film (which I also get developed locally), I aim for the flattest scan and widest range of tones. I then can manipulate the curve/levels, etc. in post. I think you are just a little too contrasty and it is hard to see the people in the photo....maybe others will disagree.

    Cindy is quite right. A good negative scan fills the entire histogram without clipping at either end - flat scan, wide range of tones.

    thank you Cindy & Lars, when they developed in the shop they also scanned a jpeg that looks more like you are saying and also sharper.

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Thanks very much! There is definitely something about the tonality of black and white film that is beautiful and extremely hard to reproduce. I wish I knew how to replicate it with digital -- I am sure there is a way, but nothing I have found so far has worked as well or as consistently as simply loading a roll of Acros.

    I have the most fun getting up close and personal in the land of bugs. Ugh!

    Pentax MX 100mm f4 Macro-Bellows Lens, Kodachrome 64.
    Minolta Dual Scan II, full slide scans.

    Stunning images. Top notch stuff!

    (I'm sure gonna miss Kodachrome! Guess if I (and lots of other folks) was still shooting it, it wouldn't have gone away, eh?)

    Thanks Lloyd. I guess mama (Great Yellow Father?) took the Kodachrome away.
    The only color films I use in 35mm are Kodachrome and Velvia 50, and even the Velvia I now only use in MF cameras. Looks like my 35s are going to become B&W machines until that too disappears.

    These are terrific. I especially like the house (church?) by the lake and the man seated w/reflection. The landscape is just so, well, barren! Still, I think if you spend enough time outside in almost any natural area, it works on you. It certainly has a distinctive look.

    I've loaded my first roll of Acros into the Rollei, largely because of your example. Fingers crossed! (which oddly enough is a standard inner feeling every time I shoot film these days.)

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Thanks Tim! It is a church actually. The landscape here can be barren, but it is gorgeous. Have you any results from the Acros yet? I hope it is working well for you.

    Here are a few from yesterday. I shot 3 rolls of 120 and a few digital shots. Two rolls were black and white. The girl is the barista at my local coffee shop -- I think she has a really interesting look.









    The first two are the 110/2, the second two are the 50/2.8 FE.

    Thank you Cindy! I think I like the third one best so far, but we'll see. I have two more rolls to check out, including a color one which could be interesting.

    A classic image of a classic beauty. The angle of the light really adds a lot of interest here.

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Lovely image William! The chiaroscuro works well there.

    We don't usually post contact sheets, but I figured it might be fun. I have not had a chance to scan any of these yet, but here is the second black and white roll from the photo shoot that I did with Sigga.

    Nice stuff, Stuart. I really like the second and third from the left on the bottom row.

    She does have an interesting look. Reminds of the actress Glenne Headly, especially about the time she starred in "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels".

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Thank you both. I think I like those particular ones as well. The second one is probably my favorite too -- it is a rather interesting expression. It looks better full sized...

    As for the film, it is Fuji Acros developed in Rodinal 1+100. It was a bright, contrasty light, so a mildly compensating developer helped hold the highlights. The first shots were with Delta 100 in Id-11 1+1, as I had an unfinished roll in the camera. They are quite similar films in some ways though.

    The rest of the photos I took with Sigga are scanned. There are a number of them, so I will just post two and link to the rest:
