I never used my Nikkor 80-200 1:2.8 D, push and pull version on my analogue bodies. From the D90 i knew it is a great lens. So me and my friend Remy went to Beekberger Woud and i took my F100 and the 80-200 with me. Above you can see the entire set. Most nature snapshots with a few nice catches. Also 2 shots of my friend.
As promised in my last post, here is the second roll of film. Started at Teufelsberg and finished at Hohenschönhausen. Teufelsberg is an old NATO station used by the americans to listen to the east. Hohenschönhausen is the reason why perhaps? An old Stasi prison which is now a memorial place. The only portrait in the serie is our guide who has been imprisoned there.
This may we went on holiday to Berlin. We started of with Film Hotel Lily Marleen in Potsdam on the 18th. Potsdam we wanted to see because the trip before we just saw Sans Souci. Potsdam was ok but not great. But…..Before we came to Potsdam we stopped at Beelitz-Heilstätten for a nice urbex adventure, wich it became! I brought my just bought Olympus E-M10 but also being the the only Nikon gear my F100+50mm 1.4g AF-S. The film was expired unfortunately very expired. I had a lot of work in Photoshop adjusting the scans, but here is the whole series of that filmroll. Hope you can enjoy anyway! I filled 2 more rolls wich i will post soon.
Techstuff; Nikon F100, Nikkor 50mm 1.4 g AF-S, Kodak Portra 400 nc Expired(no clue but not great film no more), Coolscan LS-40, Photoshop.
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)
Filled a roll of Kodak Tmax 400 asa, expired 5-2013, so almost fresh. Used my Nikon F100 and my 50mm 1.4g and Series E 100mm 1:2.8. Scanned using my LS-40 and little bit of tweaking in CS6 on levels. I don’t use the 100mm a lot, but i should, great lens on film and digital. No fancy shots here, just some random stuff around me.
I was talking on FB with a friend about analogue shooting and the positives and drawbacks about this hobby next to digital shooting. During this talk i realized that i really like b&w analogue photography, even if it’s snapshots. Decisions…..
In this post some b&w. It’s Ilford HP5 Plus 400 asa, expired 7-2012. Random shots as you can see. I used my Nikon F100 with my 50mm 1.4g attached. Hema developed the negatives and my Coolscan LS-40 made the scans. Photoshop CS6 was used to remove spots, no further post processing done here. Just added a border. I like the sharpness and the grain.
Currently there is a roll of Kodak 400 tri-x in the F100. Though doubts about continuing using analogue is in my mind again……
