    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    Thanks Dan! I am having the film developed at a local lab that does a great job. The scanning job they do is quite poor...will be sending every roll from here on out to NCPS. I had a V750 scanner that I *planned* on using....just don't have the time.

    Great shots Dan, which film is that? Really like the look to #2

    Here is a familiar subject With Portra 160 and ZM 25. The girl loves her dresses....










    ZM 50

    Ryan,
    These photos of your daughter are beautiful. My favorite is the third photo on the stairs. You are lucky to have such photogenic children.
    I sold my M9 because it was sitting on the sidelines. I was picking up the M6 or iiig instead of the M9 and I hated to have it sitting. Film is very addicting.

    Ryan, love your shots with the ZM 25. I wish I have a little girl like that for me to shoot :-q.

    It seems like you've bought and sold the ZM 25 multiple times. Any particular reason?

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    Thanks guys. Araakii, you are correct. I have had this lens 3 times on/off . My problem is, the images are so great, yet its a difficult length for me to get used to. I far more prefer 21/28 (shouldn't have gotten rid of the Cron ) and keep trying to settle on a length that just doesn't agree with me. It is perfect on the NEX-5N as it turns into a 35....but I have decided that I will get the 24 f/1.8 for NEX instead.

    One more of him back in the hairy days (MP, 75 Lux, HP5+ @400, Diafine, Nikon 5000ED scan):

    Ed - nice shots...particularly like the B/W with the Canon 35 f/2. How is that lens? I have heard similar rendering to an older 35 Cron...true?

    Chris - very nice portraits. #2 is my favorite. Looks very clean for 1200. I am contemplating a scanner again instead of sending stuff out....don't know if I want to pony up the cash for the 5000

    Ed, Nice photos. That v2 cron renders nicely and of course, I love the Jupiter 3. If anyone gets a J3 that does not focus correctly, I recommend Brian Sweeney who posts here and on RFF. He really did a wonderful job on my J8 and J3.
    Chris, Can't beat that 75 lux for a beautiful portrait and the 50 lux is legendary.

    Thank you Lloyd, Ryan and Cindy. Today I tried stand development in Blazinal (the trade name for Rodinal in Canada) for the first time, using Legacy Pro 100, which is Acros 100 exposed at ISO 100. From the adjustments I had to make to the scan I should have exposed it at 200, or pulled it out after half an hour rather than a whole hour. Leica MP and 75 Lux:

    Ryan, beautiful photographs of your daughter! The shot of your daughter on the swing is just precious, love it!

    Thanks for you kind words, they are always appreciated. The film used on the second shot was Legacy Pro B&W 400 ISO that I had purchased from Freestyle with a short life date, it expired in 09/11. No longer available.

    Wonderful photographs of your son above, sharp detail and great portrait work with the 75 Cron! The one in the middle is my favorite of that group.

    . . . . . with that said I wanted to say that I love the soft touch in the picture above that does not emphasis the lines in the man's face but still has clarity and detail along with the soft bokeh background! Another beautiful portrait.

    Dan, it was pretty fun but the venue is much smaller than Sakura Con at the convention center.

    All 3 shots were taken with (once again) my favorite Zeiss 50mm Sonnar with the SF-58 flash. Except the one taken outdoor, they were taken indoor with minimum lighting.

    Thank you, Dan. You gave my wife a good laugh when you described her as a man! Blazinal - the sex change developer!

    . . . . . and I just made an appointment with the optometrist.

    Following that I have an appointment with an orthopedist surgeon to see if I can get my foot pulled back out of my mouth . . . . .


    Please extend my apologies to your wife.

    Brief story: Hapilan Tondo is an Urban poor community in Metro Manila formerly known as "Dump site". Most of the resident's main source of income is through garbage junks and charcoal making. This is the main reason why they are reported having the highest number of TB cases in the country.

    Great images here.
    As someone who grew up with film but never had great developping skills and being unpatient I found digital to be THE solution: I would be able to do everything myself from taking the image to making a big print on my Epson 7900.
    However since starting with digital cameras it has been a neverending optimizing time of switching cameras, buying monitors, calibtrating, buying printers, calibtrating etc etc. Even though I now could control everything myself I still feel its a hit and miss to get an image to look like I want it. And to make it look not "digital".

    Just got a 6008 Rollei for 350 for fun and today got the first roll back (from a cheapo lab) and have to say looks quite good, I guess I would have to spend quite some time to get this "look" from my digital cameras.

    So I came to this thread and hey....I really like what I see.
    I am soo close to believe that film and a good lab might serve my needs better. Saving much of my time for post processing and using it for photography?

    Anyways-great images and motivates me to do more with film.
    Do most of you scan and print inkjet or do you get analog prints?

    Just did my first solo gig (unpaid) to cover an event. Here are a couple samples.

    I am really impressed with how the film somehow turned a boring studio light into sunset type of color.

    Currently I am having my film processed and scanned onto a High Res CD by Capitol Hill 60 Minute Photo Express Lab Services in Seattle.

    Started using a film camera again at the beginning of August, but currently using the electronic darkroom for the finished product. I am currently enrolled in a Photography Certificate Program at the University of Washington. Courses include working in the 'wet' darkroom and will see where that leads. They also will cover digital processing and printing. My current Cannon printer is dated and the print quality is poor. Plan on picking up an Epson, or possibly another brand name printer, in the future after getting some experience in the lab in school.

    . . . . . that is my process at the moment and look to make changes over the next several months.

    Look forward to seeing you post some photographs Tom!

    Yes, after you and ED left I ended up talking to Mark for awhile and then I decided to go ahead and make the purchase.

    Shot two rolls with the M6 on Saturday and Sunday and one roll came out as expected and the other had scratches and white marking on the majority of the negatives. I am assuming they were caused in the development process and not by the camera and will be running another couple of rolls through over the weekend to insure it is not the camera. The other thought I had was that I may have not threaded the film correctly, just not sure what created the scratch marks.

    Anyone have any experience I would enjoy the feedback.

    Anyway, I am enjoying the M6, it fits well in my hands and the shutter speed dial is larger and makes it a little easier to adjust quickly. The .085 works well with the 75mm and look forward to using the 50mm & 90mm lenses as well.

I am assuming they were caused in the development process and not by the camera and will be running another couple of rolls through over the weekend to insure it is not the camera. The other thought I had was that I may have not threaded the film correctly, just not sure what created the scratch marks.
    Dan, I just had this experience a couple weeks ago. I suspect that when I loaded the film, the film didn't get aligned with the "lines" above and below the shutter curtain perfectly. On my negatives, I could see that the exposed area in each frame is slightly tilted to one side.

    Went to a photo shoot over the weekend at the Masonic Temple in Oshkosh hosted by the Oshkosh Photography group. Erin was one of the models available.

    Cindy, great photographs of Erin! What a treat to have a professional model to work with, love the captures!

    Thanks for your kind words, they are always appreciated. The M6 is a treat and my short time with it has been a positive experience. I was also pleased with the results of the Porta 400 that I used with my MP. Working with the film 'M' cameras has been a real treat.

    Hope all is well and always look forward to your posts!

    Thanks, Dan. Erin is also a college student. The models were doing this in exchange for photos for their portfolios. Erin has a special something about her that is magic, and I'm sure she has a bright future ahead. Most of the photographers had strobes and big Can-Nikons. It was fun to just move around with my M6 and iiig (also used my Panasonic G3 with M glass) using available light.
