    And hey, I'm like J.J. Abrahams- I like lens flare and blown highlights!

    Cindy, it's crazy! I could be scanning for months, before I ever got to a new roll of film!

    From my Canonet, loaded with HP5:

    Cedar Bowl, North Platte, NE, 1979

    This is the parking lot next to the motel my high school band stayed at during a marching band trip to North Platte, NE.

    Thanks Maggie -- I like that last one of yours -- it is such an American scene...I also like that the family fun center is right across from the adult book store.

    Thanks, y'all!!! I was so delighted to find that negative last night! Oh, and I used the Nikon scanning software, instead of Vuescan and wow, does it produce a nice file! (Especially with color negs and chromes, where you can use DigitalICE.)

    It amused the hell out of me that not only was the liquor store and porno palace across from the "Family Fun Center," but that a busload of teenagers had been put in a motel next to it all! IIRC, the cowboy wakling towards the porno palace was our bus driver.

    Nebraska has always been the place where the Midwest turns into the West and North Platte is probably one of the best example of that fuzzy boundary. It is, after all, the home town of William "Buffalo Bill" Cody!

    I finally tried Nikon Scan last night, myself, Maggie. I really like it too. I like having the eyedroppers on the curves adjustment and there are more tools (at least more intuitive to me). I think that I will stick with it.
    Here is one from last night.

    That looks great and what a great frame- colors are WOWZA! (but not over-the-top) and the geometry and the moment are top-drawer, too.

    How do you use the eyedropper on the Curves tool, Cindy? I haven't tried it yet.

    I use the eyedropper if the colors don't look right or if I want to set the black and white point. I try to get a pretty flat scan so that there is as much info as possible to work with in Photoshop. Photoshop is where I do most of the curves work.
    I just figured the Nikon software probably wasn't that good, but I was very pleasantly surprised by it. I know that Vuescan has a lot of control, but it is just not as user-friendly (IMHO). I'd like to try Silverfast on my Nikon, but I"m not ready to spend money on it right now.

    Thanks for your support, Maggie and Lloyd!

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

    Vuescan could also be called "Vexscan" because its UI is so vexing and opaque at times!!!

    Say, does anyone know of something that works like DigitalICE, but on monochrome negatives? Nikon Scan did a wonderful job of cleaning up my chromes, but I spent hours with the healing brush, cleaning up my B&W scans.

    Does anyone else use Vuescan in RAW mode? This is what I do, that way the vexing interface is avoided...do all the adjustments in Photoshop.

    More from the Canonet and the Nikon scanner...

    Tri-X from 1978 this time.

    I think those chairs were made during World War Two.

    Interesting shots, Maggie. I recall those chairs (sadly, they were a little newer when I was sitting on them. )

    I particularly like that last one. I wonder how large that gully is now?

    Thank you!!

    As for the gully in the pasture, it's long been plowed under and planted with corn, I suspect. There's no room for pastures in today's HFC-centered agribusiness. I miss having actual farms around, you know? Now it's just a house, some silos and acre after acre of corn or soybeans.

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

    Thank you, Maggie. It is insane how sharp they are right out of the scanner. I still don't have the glass tray for the scanner, so the sharpness should still improve when I get that. I haven't tried to print any yet. I have a couple of more rolls coming back soon and once I get them scanned, I'll print.

    Thanks, Claire! I'm quite proud of the work my teen-aged self did!!

    You know, the walls of the band room and the teachers' lounge at my high school were covered in asbestos, which many, many students (and a few teachers) carved their names into, so I'm betting that the lead paint on all the chairs was the least of our worries!!

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

    I scanned a few 'chromes the other night:

    Kelly Meier, St. Paul, MN, 1990


    Schoolbus Mirror, Minneapolis, MN, 1984


    Kelly Meier and Leaf, Craig, NE, 1990


    Kelly Meier, Craig, NE, 1990


    The shots of Kelly were taken with the F3-28/2.8 combo and the mirror was with, IIRC, either the Olympus XA or a Konica T4, probably with the 40mm pancake.

    Some of the B&W files have had hours of work done on them, touching up all the scratches and dust. I went a little OCD on 'em.

    I don't think I posted this- a break on a short movie I was making for MCAD, shot in...

    The F3 and the 28, again. I ran a lot film through that rig.

    Thanks Anthony, I am glad you like them. And I have to agree with tokengirl and Maggie -- that is a nice photo you have there.

    Maggie -- I really like these old photos you are posting. Judging from his apartment, Dan looks like a character.
    My photos are here: http://www.stuartrichardson.com and more recent work here: http://stuartrichardson.tumblr.com/ Please have a look at my book!

    Thanks, Stuart! Yep, Dan is one hell of a character. You know those Dos Equis ads with "The Most Interesting Man In The World?" That'd be Dan. He's a barber and a motorcycle racer and, in his spare time, he shoots photos (with my old Konica T4 and autowinder!) and writes for a couple of cycle mags!

    He used to be one hell of a drummer, too. I'd still like to have him in a band with me.

    Anthony, that is really, really stunning!

    I've posted this photo before- but it was an old scan of a print, I think, and not so good, but I found the negative and re-scanned it and spent a ridiculous amount of time touching it up, so here it is, reborn!

    Sue In The Snow, Craig, NE, 1978


    Here's the original caption for the photo:
    My sister, outstanding in her field. Er, on our creek. In the middle of the pasture. On the farm. In 1978 or so.

    Shot with my Canonet and developed in dad's darkroom in the basement. I found the small file of a scanned negative (maybe print) in my old iPhoto library and I can't remember where the file came from. But I spiffed it up a bit in LightZone, because this photo makes me smile. I loved the overgrown and unused pasture, probably because it was never-tilled prairie, just pretending to be a pasture. I miss having a little wild and private place to go whenever I felt the need.

    I've posted this photo before- but it was an old scan of a print, I think, and not so good, but I found the negative and re-scanned it and spent a ridiculous amount of time touching it up, so here it is, reborn!

    Maggie, I love the old times that you are bringing me back to. My first rangefinder--the Canonet. Now I'm wondering if I still have some old negs in storage.

    I just got this roll back, but the negs aren't marked. Might be Efke.
    Mamiya 7

    Maggie: I agree with Cindy (other than about the Canonet being my first rangefinder, it was Leica IIIc, in my case). As I get older I come to realize that the images associated with memories, family, other people dear to me in my life, places (especially those now gone, or forever changed), are by far the most important images I've ever taken. Thanks for the reminder! Not to mention that this is a great shot... lovely light, and wonderful tones.

    Love these Cindy. Especially like the dark tones of the water.

    Thanks, Lloyd. Here is one I just got back from the last roll I took before I sold the Mamiya AFD. Kodak Ektar
    In the Shadow of the Superstition Mountains

    Thanks so much, Lloyd! It's interesting; I see my sister all the time (supped with her last night at our mom's 75th birthday party), so for me, that place, now gone forever, thanks to the next farmer's plow, is the little bit of magic in that shot. Tho' Sue's snowmobile suit and glasses are pretty rad, too.

    +100 on that sentiment! The dam shot is just fantastic. Love it, love it, love it!
