    Nice set. Looks like you've got a winner, Carl. Really nice tonality here as well. I particularly like the last shot.

    Carl, These look really nice. My favorite is the last. I like the little oarsman in the window.

    I love the surprise of scanning film and finding out what I have. It is so different from the instant gratification of digital. The tones are so much nicer, that it makes it worth the "pain" of the actual scanning. The other bonus is that there are so many great film cameras out there to try. I am using Vuescan again. I used it with my Nikon V and now the 9000 (I used Silverscan on my Epson V700...another nice program). Vuescan plays nice with my Mac and the Nikon.

    Edit...LOL...I was posting simultaneously with Lloyd. I see that he like the last one best, too.

    Thank you Lloyd and Cindy. The tonality one can get with film is also the main reason I keep going back. Thanks for the reminder to give Vuescan a try. I use it with an Epson 700 for 4x5 but haven't worked with Vuescan and the Nikon.

    Y Sol, I second what Lloyd said. These portraits are so inspiring.
    The photos on your web site are outstanding, too.

    beautiful y sol! I love to see the polaroids. I am out of type 55, but I think I have two boxes of 665 left, though I am not sure if they are still going to be usable...they may be dried up by now.

    Really gorgeous portraits Y Sol. I still have one full box of Type 55 left, but haven't seen any 665 for years.

    Thank you all for the nice words! I'm working on this project since a long time. I have still 15 boxes of 665 film left and I hope to continue this serie.

    I hope you post more as you work on your project. The photo of Benny Golson is just spectacular. I keep going back to it and looking again. The lighting, the pose, the sax...Wow!

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

    Two 4x5 shots from my trip up to Snæfellsnes. These are also the first E-6 shots that I processed myself! They turned out pretty well, especially since the film expired in 2006.



    Unfortunately, I missed the light on the church by about 2-3 minutes. I just got there and was setting up, but when I turned around, the light was gone. Such is the way of 4x5...nature does not wait for you to set up. I still like the photo though.

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

    Stuart,
    Development seems to be working well. What equipment did you finally get?

    Re the light in the second one - yes it looks a bit flat. You did use a grad though, right? To get more warmth in the foreground a reversed coral grad helps. Personally I would have waited another hour until the sky is deep blue while there still is some twilight on the mountains and the church. I have a photo (of a church hehe) where I did just that, will dig up the scan when I get home.

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

    Hi Lars,
    No, there was no grad nor any other filters. I actually don't even own one! I applied a little in post, but just to restore some shadow detail to the scan.

    I am doing the processing in a Jobo CPP-2 with a 3010 expert drum. The chemicals are Fuji's 5L E-6 kit.

    I am interested to see your shot!

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

    First time shooting with a Hasselblad. 501CM, 50/4 CF FLE, TriX 320/D76

    I have to say I kinda like the square format, and the feel of the camera is growing on me.

    Checking the images in preview, they look softer than what is on my computer. hmmm...

    Lloyd,
    I think those were apples. I'm in what is considered wine country in Washington--Walla Walla. Not sure why they train the trees that way though. Further down the road the trees are straight up.

    OK here we go... These are unedited scans, there is a lot of shadow detail to bring out, but I think they are good enough to make my point. Southern Gotland, 8x10" E100G, Cooke Triple Convertible XVa on both exposures. I find E100G (or Astia) to work best after sunset - the strong colors at dusk means E100VS and Velvia get way too saturated.

    What happens long after sunset is that eventually the sky above darkens dramatically, while there's still a strip of twilight in the west. You get a low-contrast side-lighting with a pretty warmth, while the sky above is dark enough to keep overall contrast in check. At this time it's so dark that most photographers have already packed up and gone home. In 8x10 I often get exposure times ranging from 2 to 15 minutes - sometimes I just leave the shutter open until it's pitch dark.

    These two are actually shot too early to fully illustrate what I am describing. There's a funni side story here though - the land around this church is used as grazing land by a local farmer, so there were a lot of cows around. I had to work quite hard to keep the cows out of the scene, and from bumping my tripod over.

    Lars -- Thanks for the examples. I think I know what you mean about the light. I will give that a try here sometime. Good job on keeping the cows away!

    Wow LArs and Stuart your large format slides are looking so great , it make me feel I am going to get my Wista 45dx out on the field again with an entire box of Velvia sleeping in the fridge !
    William it's been a time I am looking this thread and no matter the camera you are using I can see how brillant you are at showing the complicity with your wife... great portraits , attitudes and moments.
    Ysol, beautiful portraits, with great BW richness of tones...

    This thread is becoming my favorite of the site, ...I think I am beginning to be tired of pixel peeping !!!

    Tremendous contrast range... does the neg still have details in the extreme highlights? That's got to be 12-15 stops range right there.

    Here's a Lomo shot from 2004 (the one with four plastic lenses) At that time I used the Konica Centuria 800 CN a lot.

    Lars,

    The highlight are really at their limit here. I think I exposed the film @ 250 and then underdeveloped.

    Lovely stuff guys! William -- I agree with you there...I think this is my favorite thread here. But I like film, so that makes sense.
    Thank you John and Stephane! John -- I definitely am enjoying myself. Now that I am developing my own 4x5 I have a great time with it.

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

    Here is a 4x5 shot that kind of worked and kind of didn't. It looks ok on the web, but it does not look good at larger sizes. It was a 30 minute exposure wide open with the 110mm SS XL. Unfortunately, I did not manage to focus correctly...something about things being completely dark out. I tried to make the lights in the distance points, but I guess it either did not work, or the camera shifted over the course of the exposure. The film was acros, which is pretty incredible for its reciprocity abilities, but unfortunately in this case, the black and white cannot give you the green impression of the aurora. You can see the glow in the sky and from behind the hills though (this is facing north/northeast).

    Too bad. It sure looks good here.

    Thanks Lloyd...unfortunately it is pretty mushy at print sizes. And of course with 30 minute exposures there are no retakes! I will use a flashlight to try to better nail down the focus next time.

    Stuart, I like your night image. It has a spacey sci-fi feel. Interesting result that you used the 110 XL wide open. Do you think the aurora was bright enough to work as as a fill light on the landscape over time?


    Here's one of mine: same lens (but at f/22 for 90 minutes), same film, different scene.

    Interesting nevertheless... focusing at night is a real pain. A big 4x loupe helps - no need to bring out that 10x loupe. Reading glasses are great too And remove the center filter when focusing, in case you didn't.

    Stopping down is obviously a no-no if you're already at 30 minutes wide open. I have skipped the center filter on my 150XL a few times - get lots of falloff on slide film but sometimes there is no alternative.

    I can tell from the star trails that the left edge is facing north.

    Good eye Lars! And thanks for the advice on the loupes. Yes, I did not use a center filter here...in fact, I do not have one...I have not really found it all that necessary, but I am not that bothered by some vignetting and I often shoot black and white where it is less of an issue.

    Dominique -- thanks, I am glad you like the shot. The aurora was definitely bright enough to fill in the landscape. This was at the tail end of its display, but in the strongest part, it was almost bright enough to read by. By the time I took the 4x5 shot, it was much darker, but still bright enough to provide fill.

    I like your shot as well. I get the impression that it would have a very nice tonality and impression in a print. Very thin negatives can sometimes produce very beautiful photos.

    I recently bought a Nikon F6 from Marc Williams and have been putting together a set of Zeiss primes for it - how lucky we are to have such awesome glass available for SLRs these days... These are my six year old son on Ilford XP2 Super - just amazing film for scanning if you haven't tried it...

    The first is with the 100mm makro F2 and the second is the 85mm planar f1.4 - both at full aperture. Very different signatures.

    Very different signatures, for sure....both renderings are wonderful. It is nice that we such tools available.

    Renewing my interest in images I've taken with the Pentax 67 (and soon with a P67II body on it's way here from Monza). Here's an image I took shortly aftering acquiring a Pentax 300mm ED IF lens. The full image and a 100% crop section. Very happy with this lens (and Pentax lenses in general).

    Gary

    The Island Warrior barge at the outlet of Ship Creek into Cook Inlet


    100% crop


    The camera/lens on location (barge in the background)


    Now that the weather is warming up here (40 degrees!) I may take the Pentax 67 with 300 EDIF and the Hasselbald 501CM with the CF350 I purchased from Fotografz down to the harbor for a "shootout" this weekend. :-)
