Some weeks ago the sun seemed willing to shed some nice winterlight in my garden. So i asked my daughter if she would pose. So she did in her winter outfit. It was fun and out of 16 shots i selected these 5.
Nikon F100 Panagor 135mm 1:2.8 Ilford HP5 Plus 400 asa expired 7-2012 Coolscan LS-40 PS CC(dust removal and some levels adjustments)
Been a while since i posted stuff here. But gonna be here more and share with you. Got myself a few rolls of Kodak Elitechrome 400 asa expired in 2001. Filled my Nikon F100 with it and mounted my Nikkor 28mm 1:2.8 AF. Time to shoot! Loads of snow and grey days, but what the heck. I scanned the positives with my LS-40 and only adjusted the colors in PS5.1. I am kinda satisfied with the results, clearly the film wasn’t that good any more but still…..!
Well……My last analogue experience was bad, very bad. Yesterday scanned the last roll of film i filled. Used my Dad’s Olympus OM-1. The 100mm 1:2.8 should be a very nice piece of equipment. I made random shots over a longer period of time, so what i show here is random. What can i say, i am happy! The Superia 400 was expired for 1 year. As you can see no influence on quality yet. Next is testing the newly aquired 28mm 1:2.8 for the OM-1. Camera is ready, filled with Kodak Color Gold 200asa. Thinking about upgrading the 50mm 1.8 wich comes with the OM-1 to a 1.4 version. Not sure if i want to invest the money over the 1.8 wich is not that bad at all.
It has been a while since i posted at this blog. It was time again. Have been busy, but flickr kept on going. I mounted my Kiron 105mm 1:2.8 on the D90 and went into the garden, found this grass wich i aimed my macro ideas at. It was a cloudy day so shutters speeds barely reached fast times to freeze the movement, but it gave some nice shots in my opinion. All the photo’s are a little bit post processed in Capture NX 2. Moslty exposure compensation and a bit sliding with black and white point. And if needed USM.
