Hi Peter, is the 35 pre-ASPH a new purchase or is this a photo from the past? I’m shooting with a pre-ASPH version and finally figuring out how to get around its limitations and quarks but really enjoying its character on my M-E.
Hi Duane. This combo is from the past. It was an amazing combo, by the way.
I love film. Nice one.
Thanks Antonio. I love film too.
Made me smile, thank you.
Thank you Jason.
A really nice moment Peter. Having it set in the supermarket excited about some sort of food (is it chicken nuggets or pizza :-)) that children love gives it a nice unique feel to it. This is the type of image we don’t normally see to often (if at all for me).
…Huggies, I believe.
Lots of ’em here if you’d like a box.
Ahh….it is ….I see. Well you are well qualified to spot that :-)! I think it was the freezer section which threw me…..
Thank you Mark.
Just curious what scanner and scanning software do you use. Thanks
I *used* to use Vuescan and the Epson V700 (which did pretty well in this shot). In more recent times, I’ve used a Plustek 7600. Now, I’m no longer shooting film.
Great photo! Film is terrific…why not throw a roll of Portra or Provia into the MP every so often? I’ve lusted over digital Leicas but for now I’m sticking to my film Ms….I get a new sensor with each roll and hardly do anything at the computer. I rented the M9 a few years ago and although I enjoyed it, it was the film photos that made me smile the most, maybe because I’m more critical when on click the shutter since every frame costs. Can’t disregard the convenience of digital though.
As always, thank you for providing such an exquisite site.
Thank you Kevin.
Hope you are doing great! Great candid moment in a store! And great to see that grain appearing in some of your images again.
All the best,
