    Re: Fun with Medium Format FILM Images!

    Thank you Dave.gt. I was married in 1959, at age 22, and built my first darkroom. I was making 16"x20" B&W prints (now referred to as "silver gelatin" prints), and 16"X 20" Kodak "Type C" color prints and continued to do so for 50 years, until we retired and moved into a 2 bedroom condo, and I switched to digital printing, but still using film capture then scanning the negs. I actually made cardboard masks and double printed replacing skies when I thought it improved the image. Burning in the corners and edges, dodging shadows to open them up and burning in highlights was a common thing for experienced darkroom workers to do. I kept warmed undiluted Dektol next to the developing tray to "push" areas that needed help, and Potassium Fericyanide bleach
    next to the fixer tray to lighten areas that needed it. Selenium toner to blacken the blacks, Kodak gold toner ( blue black) for night scenes or snow images. I think I learned my printing skills the old fashioned way. I will never get into film vs digital, as I like to think the end result is art, regardless of how you get there. I do think the end result should ultimately be a print. Our walls are filled with 30"x36" framed prints in our home. Thank you again for your very kind words

    Hi, Dave!

    We are wrapping up this old year with another day at the Rehabilitation Hospital, and we will start again with months of therapies the day after New Year's Day, so I will make this a short post.

    This thread was NOT intended for any discussion of film v digital, and we will keep it that way. Your images are stunning, as always. I wish I had your talent and skills. Your experience, and your journey toward even better artistic expression with the next image is impressive and inspires me!

    If I had the time and the energy, I would love to learn more of what you do... but life has a way of controlling things and we manage the best we can. Thank you again for all I have learned from you the last few years!

    Is this thread opened to digital images now?
    If so, I am disappointed.

    Re: Fun with Medium Format FILM Images!

    I spend more time in LR or PS removing dust from a scan than I do shooting and processing a film image. You want fun? Try a wet plate where dust becomes an integral part of the emulsion/lacquer and there is NO grain to hide it.

    Ok, I'm just being difficult. I know which of MY images are film and which are digital, and I haven't tried to combine them.

    Wait! That's not true!

    This is 85% Mamiya 7II, and 15% Leica S. I needed a bit more of the left towers, and spent a long time matching the images to make a panorama.



    Still, I call this a film image.

    Best,

    Matt

    Re: Fun with Medium Format FILM Images!

    Well, I have at least 9 rolls of various films to mail out to Dwayne's next week.

    The order has some E6, some black and white, and a few color rolls. Since I only have a 35mm scanner, I will also have the scans made locally at my friend's shop.

    It will take several weeks and I am already getting anxious!

    Stay tuned!

    I took a 3-day wet plate course at the Penumbra Foundation. It was great fun, but shooting at ISO 1 can be a challenge. For portraits, a pair of 4000Ws power packs. Otherwise, 30 second exposures. The dynamic range is tiny, but there is NO grain. The lens sharpness is the only thing limiting resolution. And focus. And DoF...

    This thread is encouraging me to look at some older film images; I wish it could encourage me to organize them!. Pentax 67II, 35mm fisheye, Provia, Nikon 9000 scan.

    Often attempted, seldom pulled off. Nice contrast of near and distant leaves!

    On rainy days like this, being stuck at home, I miss the tin roof. The sound of rain on such a roof is one of those experiences that I simply never forgot.

    I am now considering a very small lawnmower shed with a tin roof outside the bedroom window.

    Until then, keep posting, Darr!

    Thanks Matt. The 67 35mm is, in my experience, the weakest of the Pentax 67 lenses: nothing is very sharp; however, everything is in focus .

    Pentax 645, Provia, Nikon 9000 scan. I don't recall the lens, likely the 150mm A.

    Re: Fun with Medium Format FILM Images!

    Be careful what you post.... Some of us, like me, will take the off ramp to other things after seeing images like Darr's. Inspired, I have been researching images made with Kodachrome 120 film! Darr's Portra image above reminds me of how common roadside stands were. Great image. And I think many images of roadside stands were made with Kodachrome as well.

    It never gets tiring finding more and more images made with Kodachrome but most are 35mm format. I am stunned by them, of course, but I am really blown away with the 120 format images.

    I have no idea if anyone here has 120 Kodachrome images but if you do, please post them! It is amazing to see the colors and I am especially interested in learning more of our culture and times documented on Kodachrome.

    My search continues...

    It never gets tiring finding more and more images made with Kodachrome but most are 35mm format. I am stunned by them, of course, but I am really blown away with the 120 format images.

    I have no idea if anyone here has 120 Kodachrome images but if you do, please post them! It is amazing to see the colors and I am especially interested in learning more of our culture and times documented on Kodachrome.

    My search continues...
    Dave,

    I do not think I ever shot Kodachrome in 120. I looked for some Kodachrome info and found this: Kodachrome 64 film in 120 format was discontinued in 1996 and it was only available from 1986-1996. That is a small window compared to other formats that were available from 1935-2007. I know I shot it in 135 and I have a t-shirt from Dwayne's Photo memorializing the last day of development for Kodachrome on December 30, 2010.

    The "Broke Down" photo was made a few weeks ago on Route 27 about 45 minutes south of Tallahassee. We stopped to help the lady that was broke down with a jump start, and bought a bag of pecans. The owner of the stand is a very elderly man with not much to sell, and could not help the lady. I stop there whenever we pass through and buy whatever he is selling if he is open. One reason I live in North Florida is because it is still rural. North Florida is more like Alabama and South Georgia than what a lot of people perceive Florida to be.

    Kind regards,
    Darr



    Edit: Dave, me thinks you are *really good* at being a host, so maybe you can start a new thread asking for Kodachrome images (any format). Maybe we might all start looking through our notebooks of film and start posting some. Just a thought.

    I forgot this was a Kodachrome - classic view of Wiamea Canyon on Kauai in 1990.

    I found Ektachrome and Fujichrome more reliable. Kodachrome 120 came late in the KodaChrome timeline, and processing was slower and less consistent (and I was no longer living in Vancouver, which had the Kodak Lab), I occasionally got miss-processed rolls, and there was more colour shift. The 135 Kodachrome was always good, so I think it was the 120 line that had issues.

    Great idea Darr. Image below, taken with a GFX, is technically a medium format film image

    Hi, Darr,

    That is certainly an interesting suggestion. I will consider doing just that, thanks!

    A little research has so far indicated that not many people are sharing 120 Kodachrome images online. However, there is a wealth of amazing images by professionals associated with corporate entities. The most obvious seems to be National Geographic.

    Here is a link but somehow I think these may be 135 instead of 120 format but at least the image character should remind and inspire us all..,

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/relay.n...-photo-gallery

    There are others.

    Having started a very successful 135 Kodachrome thread on another forum two years ago, I found that the personal images of posters showing home life, travel, family vacations, and events were like viewing our past through a lens that could provide a "time-travel" experience of sorts.

    Are there enough 120 Kodachrome images out "there" somewhere that would make an interesting thread? We may find out soon.

    For now, I am ordering some Ektachrome 120 ...

    Medium Format - black and white? Color?

    Interesting article here that seems to state that even Ansel Adams never made up his mind about color photography:

    https://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-...lor-145315674/

    It seems strange to think of Ansel Adams getting paid professionally using color film.

    Even more strange for me, I am struggling with a half dozen rolls of 120 TriX at the moment regarding what to shoot, how to shoot it and ... why? My transition to color years ago has re-wired my brain. My film back is loaded, so what is my mental block?

    Pick up thy camera, walk somewhere and shoot...
    Which is what I did Friday morning with Tri-X loaded in my H503CX (Planar 80mm CF T* + med yellow filter) for a walk around a local country park. Three examples from today's dev/scan session:-

    Re: Fun with Medium Format FILM Images!

    I really liked the 120 Kodachrome - I found it sharper than the E6 films and more colour-fast. This was taken in St. Kitts, W.I. about 30 years ago with a Hassy. Rephotographed with XF and SK 120 macro. No manipulation - the colours are still bright.

    And this is the first image I took with my brand new Hasselblad sometime in the 80's. Ektachrome, copied with XF and SK 120 Macro.

    I love the colors in this Bill; it immediately reminded me of a photo by Bill Binzen that appeared in the Time Life series on photography (which I read three times in the early 1970s). I do miss the excitement and wonder that accompanied receiving my processed Kodachrome in the mail.

    Mesmerising pictures, John. They have a special resonance for me... My grandfather worked there in the 1950s (when the site was in full flow, with an extensive internal railway system - long before it became a film set for Kubrick, converted to an industrial estate or used in part for the Docklands Light Railway). Sadly, he died a long time ago. As did his son (my Dad). But there are other family members who I know would love to see these pictures. Do you mind if I share? My Aunt, in particular, I am sure will be fascinated by them.

    I don't think there's anything of the old works to see there now.
