I live near it, so I'm required by law to photograph it in all kinds of weather. 😉Looking out my front windshield at the Golden Gate Bridge from the parking lot at Fort Baker, waiting for the rain to let up. 50mm Summilux

Here is a thing, we like Monochrom for the unique digital delivery but than what about using the camera as dedicated scanner of black and white negatives, the idea is not mine, I came across it in Street Silhouettes blog, so I gave it a try.

M246 attached to Nikon Bellows and slide copier, lens Micro Nikkor 55mm f2.8 AiS, shot at base ISO and f8, simple LED table lamp illumination.  Very straightforward, Raw file converted into Jpg with virtually no adjustment and inverted in PS.  Negative is circa 1987, probably Efke 21/100.

Edit, no emphasis on “bokeh” in the slow film days.

Looking down from the second story at the plaza in front of the Chase Center where the Golden State Warriors play. Here's a description of the spheres: "Seeing spheres, 2019, consists of five fifteen-and-a-half-feet-tall polished hydroformed steel spheres that stand in a circle around a central space. Each sphere supports a flat, circular mirrored face, framed by a ring of LED lights, which is oriented inward to reflect the mirrored faces of the surrounding spheres." Summicron 28mm

I bet this is as good if not better than using a high end dedicated scanner, and it's a lot faster.  Faster, and higher quality hard to beat.  The thing I hate most about dedicated scanners is how slow they are and the cumbersome software that comes with it.  If you do anymore conversions, please share.
