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

    Okay, let's see your stuff with any other camera, any format, any film, done anytime ... as long as it isn't a Leica M (it has it's own thread )

    My contributation to kick it off. Some shots from NYC during Halloween and NY Marathon weekend.

    Nikon F6 with split microprism screen, various Zeiss ZF lenses, Illford HP5 scanned on a 949 @ 6300dpi (approx produces a non-interpolated 20" X 30" file @ 300dpi, for a 300 meg 16 bit tiff.)

    Cool shoes

    Love the tonal range of the big format film. Easy to scan that size film on a flatbed like the 750 huh?

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

    here is a color shot: from 35mm slide film (ektachrome?) shot with my first autofocus nikon and the stock zoom lens in 1991. S canned with the Minolta 5400II. location is about 17,000 ft in Nepal on the way to the Everest base camp. that peak might be Ama Dablam, Everest is out of view to the left

    Marc: that was an easy scan, just done in the 4x5 neg carrier. I use Silverfast

    I LOVE shots like this Gary. This is the stuff that's disappearing. I've got one somewhere that's similar taken in Hell Michigan.

    You're so right.

    This diner is long gone. Every building on the block was demolished about a month after I took this photo.....eventually replaced by hi-rise luxury condos.

    I used to stop here on my walk to work for a cup of coffee or breakfast (in the days before I learned to love espresso). The diner was just south of downtown Minneapolis....very valuable real estate I guess.

    When I learned it was going to be demolished, I asked the cook/owner if I could come back and take some photos. When I showed up the next day with my 4x5 and a big tripod....I could see it wasn't what he was expecting. Of the half dozen exposures I made, this is the only one I really liked.

    I made a print of this image last year which was selected for the annual Alaska Rarefied Light Photography exhibit. I feel like it's one of the best images I've ever been lucky enough to capture.

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

    One of my more recent images.....which was included in the 2008 Alaska Rarefied Light photography exhibit.

    This just goes to show that even the most uninteresting image can spark some juror's interest. I honestly thought this would be the LAST image/print anyone would find of merit (besides myself, of course....but then, I really LIKE taking photos of old machinery, vehicles, run down buildings....and other assorted junk).

    Here's a review of the RL exhibit in last Sunday's Anchorage Daily News.

    http://www.adn.com/arts/story/598800.html

    Believe it or not....they printed my photograph in the newspaper (with a few others). I guess this is my 5 minutes of fame!

    Anchorage Skyline (and Ship Creek junk yard)
    Hasselblad 501CM, 50mm Distagon (or maybe it was the 80mm Planar??)
    Ilford FP4, Epson 750 scan
    Print was very small (7x7 image area) on Premier Fine Art Hot Press paper (Epson 2400)
    My only regret.....I should have made a bigger print!

    Thanks Kevin! We only recently moved to the area, but that street seems to be a pretty nice little scene now. None of the antique stores ever seem to have any camera lenses though .

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

    Nei1, I think it was Minocolor 100ASA - the standard print film at the time.
    I have an LX and an EC -- I think this was with the LX.

    I have scanned most of my prints, but at low resolution, really for indexing purposes only. Someday, I'll scan properly, and make the usual adjustments.

    Here's another, at a wedding in Switzerland, summer 1984



    I do have some b/w prints, but they have scanned badly.

    Thanks Helen! Everytime I shoot film and scan....I'm amazed at how good it looks. Takes more time, not the "instant gratification" of digital...but usually worth the effort.

    Here's another image taken with my Hasselblad 501CM, Ilford Delta 100 and Epson 750 scan. From the Alaska Railroad yards along Ship Creek in Anchorage. I'm printing this image today for the December BW print exchange on my Epson 2200 with QTR.

    I hope everyone (in the USA) is having a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    Thanks Neil, I have to find time to shoot whenever I can get it. I didn't notice any halation in the shadows, but maybe I'm missing it. Can you give me an example from one of the shots I posted?

    I'd like to try some other B&W films, but I'm reluctant to process my own, and the cost of getting film other than C41 processed in my area is pretty high.

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

    Here's one from the early 1990s. Cleveland, Ohio. Along the Cuyahoga River. I went to Cleveland (formerly, the BP America headquarters) a few times in the early/mid 1990s on business and always enjoyed wandering the city during the weekend with my camera (either a Nikon F2 or a Mamiya TLR). I love those industrial sites....nothing quite like that here in Alaska.

    This photo was taken with the Nikon F2 (slide film). Scanned years ago with my Canoscan FS2710 film scanner (now semi-retired).

    This photo has a very two-dimensional quality to my eyes....it looks almost like a painting.

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

    Another early '90s shot from Cleveland. LTV Steel mill.

    Nikon F2 (probably my 35mm f2 non-AI lens).

    These images really have a painterly look to me. Is it the older lenses, the older film, or what?

    Maybe it's just my imagination.

    Gary, love that first shot. It does look like a painting.

    William, that's a great portrait of your son!

    Here are just a couple shots of my boys having fun over the Thanksgiving weekend, followed by one of Virginia. CV 35/1.4 again:







    Definitely some handshake softness and flare in both of the color photos, but I like them anyway.

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

    Amin:
    the first shot reminds me of the Boys in a Victorian fairytale...stumbling upon something
    perhaps behind that Door

    the second shot; Silly& having Fun, little mischievous BOYS
    and Virginia always looks FAB

    The 35/1.4 seems charming
    I can't understand why Sean Reid (do hope i am not misrepresenting his critique)
    seemed abit disappointed in the oof/bokeh...I think it Draws Lovely
    a Gem of a Lens!

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

    Thanks for the comments Helen! As you know, I haven't had the 35/1.4 long, but I really enjoy the lens. At f/1.4, the bokeh can be harsh, especially at close focusing distances. The CV lens renders bokeh very nicely at f/2 and up IMO, and the f/1.4 is there for when you need it. I try to avoid certain types of background elements when shooting at f/1.4.

    I'm not talking about Sean when I say this, but I think a lot of folks give Cosina an unfair evaluation when considering bokeh characteristics. When a 35mm pre-asph Summilux or even a lowly 40mm Summicron-C demonstrates doubling and other harsh bokeh elements wide open, it is generally overlooked or mentioned as part of the character that keeps the lens from being too clinical. The same characteristics in CV lenses are deemed "bad bokeh".

    For example, the "word on the street" is that the CV 40/1.4 has very harsh bokeh. Yet, here are a couple tests showing how it compares to Leica lenses:

    1) Roland Ruehl's bokeh test of the CV 40/1.4, which shows nicer bokeh for the CV lens than the Rokkor or Summicron-C at f/2.

    2) JŁrgen Kook's bokeh test of the CV 40/1.4 against the pre-asph and asph 35mm Summilux lenses. To me, the CV lens shows similar bokeh to the pre-asph Summilux in those comparisons. The pre-asph lux shows the same bright edges and nisen bokeh.

    I don't know if Sean provided similar comparisons when he commented on the CV 35/1.4 bokeh, but I'd be surprised if side by side testing showed anything of concern, particularly at f/2 and above.
