Sunday evening, getting ready for the week. A couple of projects up my sleeve. Checking some files and setting up new folders I found some images shot just in the last couple of years with film.
The first three were made with a Nikon FM 35mm/fully manual camera with the Nikkor 50mm f1.4 lens.
The orange cast is from a western sunset to the left.
I lightened up the top two just a squinch for the web.
This tree silhouette below was just resized.
As you can see the color saturation is just outrageous. None of this pushing saturation later in Photoshop.
The bottom two where shot with a Bronica ETR-S with a 120mm back and fitted with the Zenzanon EII 75mm f2.8 lens.
And no looking at the back of the camera to see what the picture looked like. No Chimping!!
Nope, had to wait until the film got back from ncps (North Coast Photographic Services) in Carlsbad, California. ncps developed and scanned the film and dropped everything on a CD.
In the last shot of Stefan, you can see how the film held the bright window curtain with a beautiful creamy tone and detail. A digital sensor would have given me an exposure problem by blowing that out. There's even some shadow detail under the desk left.
I'd probably shoot more with the Bronica since I like the squarish format but the 120mm film and developing/scanning is expensive and the camera is heavy to boot- can't imagine lugging that thing around all day.
Thanks for stopping by.
