Boy, Peter, you have a steadier hand than I do! Seeing these nice tri-x shots make me want to get my m4 out. You have some lovely models.
Thanks Henry. Just steady your hands against a table/wall/whatever and that always helps.
Wish I had my M3, but it was scratching my negatives!
I’m curious if you love/hate relationship with film boils down to developing, scanning, or just all of that combined. The results seems to speak for themselves.
Developing colour is a problem (for me). But I prefer using B&W when shooting film anyway, so that’s not too big of a problem.
Scanning is definitely a problem (no longer have a scanner).
The uncertainty of film, the more deliberate nature of shooting film, are both problems. But they are also blessings of course.
My impatience is a problem. A big problem.
Thank you for your kind comment about “the results” though.
If you still have that digital Nikon (D810?), slap on an old Micro-Nikkor 55 and “scan” it with your Nikon. If you have a cable release and a copy stand/tripod its extremely fast and easy. I purchased this old gizmo for enlargers called a “negatrans” and it has a knob to advance the film frame to frame. All in all, the scans turn out great (I have a EM5-II that I use) and its much more enjoyable then the Plustek.
I 100% get the impatience part of it, though.
Nice shot. Must have been a dim room to go to 1/15.
I love seeing women & girls with long hair but I don’t envy the amount of work it takes to keep it clean and healthy. 😉
So much texture to this image. May be the wrong word but it is what comes to mind.
I’m hearing you on the “impatience” side of things. I have images sitting on an unfinished roll in my camera, waiting for the next time I use it so I can get it developed. But I don’t use it if not in the right frame of mind, so I have to wait! I find that a little frustrating.
