This photo is from a series from some of my crazy, extreme photo adventures I  had photographing Mountains "Alpinists " and rock climbers. This is Alpes mountain range which is called   "Le Massive du Mont Blanc", Haût Savoir region  In France.  And this place is a White valley ( La Vallee Blanche - Chamonix ) the most beautiful region You must visit. I was very brave enough to carry my Medium format two lenses/ meters/ and a Canon EOS and a 50mm, a lot of films No tripod/ It is crazy when I thi

Bonjour Henri,   I still prefer black and white film (I use almost no colour). The advantages of digital don’t mean much to me. Seeing instant results is not so useful, since what comes out of a camera is always far from a final result, and the final result requires time and thought.   Film also continues to improve. The quality of available film and developers is as good as it has ever been, and it is still as competent as digital sensors of equivalent size.   I also much prefer silver g

On a week-long stay at the Faroe Islands, I took the ferry from Torshavn (the 'capital') to the southernmost island, Suduroy, and looked up potential shooting locations on the island. This image was taken a little before the sun was setting in the ocean, with wind from the west (left). With the uplift of the humid air at the cliffs, fog and clouds drifted over the island. A quite typical situation for the islands; the ocean can be more or less cloud free, but the islands are generally covered in

Last one for today ... Grand Tetons in Kodachrome with a Canon F1N , don't remember the lens .... I do miss this film ...

 

a little more Kodachrome London April 1984 -- Whatever happened to BASF recording tapes, Philips TVs ..... not so much film left to Fuji ... Note all the "to let" signs, big bang etc turned around London business ...

 

 

couple more ...

 

 

oops .... forgot to attach the photo ..

 

 

Thanks for these Steve. The streets look familiar - my wife and I moved to London for four years in 1984 or 1985, so it was not all that different. Great memories - we had such a good time there.

 

I agree with Phil these London series are great and wonderful Steve

great memories for everyone who lives at this period ....

Great change in 2017

Steve's Kodachromes from London in the 1980s caused me to look back over some that I took during my first visit to that fair city in 1980. Here is one from Hyde Park:

...and if you think the clothes people were wearing look a bit, well, démodée, you can rest assured that at least in certain theatres in the West End they didn't even bother wearing any:

Thank you sincerely, Doc. It IS a great souvenir - I'll never forget that kind of hazy summer light that was there in the parks in London - quite unlike anything I'd ever experienced before.

Best wishes to you and your family Henry for a wonderful 2018. Let's on this thread help lead the charge to a new era of film photography!

Inspired from all the London pictures here some of my oldest stuff. London in spring 1979. I was a school boy in these days and this was the fifth film in my first camera, a Canon AE-1. Still had to learn to keep the camera in level. The negatives are in a poor condition, as you can see. But I decided to leave it at it is.

Minox version:

Minox B, Portra 400

I like the false (?) looking colours, or let me say it another way, modified colours. Wasn't aware Porta did this sort of thing, more thinking it was more a characteristic of Ektar. How did you go about exposing and developing? This is the sort of result I would like to achieve myself.

It's been a while since I was active in the thread. Good to see the doc back and some of the new contributors. I haven't had any film developed since my last batch in November. Here's one from that batch for Henry. Not sheep but cows. 28 Summaron and BW400cn. incidentally, I've walked through countless fields of cows over the years – including past some ugly looking bulls – and never felt remotely fazed. However, this benign looking herd were anything but. The cow in the middle of the frame was already eyeballing me from some distance and as I approached closely via the well worn path, the herd immediately closed in and tried to surround me. A few were jumping and snorting as they tried to outflank me and I was rather glad to get to the gate. I must admit I began to think about incidents like this one and stats like these.

  

 

 Bovine tactical maneuvers. Why not? We advance. Why not, the cows? Great shot. I always feel a bit edgy when I am being eyeballed by livestock. Even when there is a fence between us. Whenever, in that situation, I am with a dog I notice the dog immediately gets edgey and aggresive. Maybe they, the dogs, know something.

It could have something to do with size of negative and the problems, of which you have recently posted, associated with scanning. The scanner, Epson V800, gives me very little. I place the negative strip directly on the scanner bed and cover same with "Museum Glass." The rendering is always very dark and requires some manipulation of the scanner software contrast slider. As I have imperfect color vision, I am hesitant to mess around with color. I will sometimes move the file to LR and adjust luminance a bit. I try to be faithful to the Minox rendering. This particular photograph was taken with a camera recently overhauled by Don Goldberg (DAG) so it is the best Minox camera I have. Additionally, the camera's built-in ND filter was in front of the lens pretty much the whole day. With 400 speed film, even with ND filter, you are at the limits of what the camera can handle. Aperture is a constant 3.5

 

Thanks for you interest. Out of this single roll of Portra 400 I was able to create four 36 exposure, and two 24 exposure Minox rolls. You will be seeing more.

These two are really fun, Phil.  It's amazing that we can bring back those old moments with the same quality in today's world

wow, that is really interesting rendition, Wayne.  I think Lightroom needs to fashion a preset modeled after your images

My framing went to pot as I was too engrossed trying to focus the miniature SLR called the Pen F. School boy error #1. Must say his framing was better, but he needs to watch his verticals.
