A walk through Vancouver's Chinatown
Posted By: KungPOW, 03-15-2008, 11:02 PM

Went out to shoot some film today. Old-school. Used a Pentax ME for a change of pace. Film was Ilford XP2 Super 400. Had it scanned at the photolab. First time I've had film scanned, so I really did not know what to expect. More grain and contrast then I was expecting, but then that might be from the scanning. I didn't have them scanned at the highest available.

Coments and critisim most welcome. Hope you enjoy!

They look good to me Eric, I wouldn't worry about the quality of that scanning.

This is off the topic I know, but...
I'll be in Vancouver the first weekend of April, shooting a couple of events.
The chances are that I'll be swamped, but I wonder what the chances of arranging a friendly get together with you along with some of the other members from that area are

I wouldn't want to meet in a pub, in case there are some younger members, but a coffee shop or something might be fun.

OT: I'm in the Vancouver area. Would be cool to have a Pentax Vancouverites meet

KungPOW, the shots are pretty good. There's something about film that digital, for some reason, hasn't been able to capture yet. An essence or something.

Thank you for the comments everyone!

I think a get together in April is a great idea. We should think of a time and place? Anyone know how to contact other Vancouverites/Lower mainlanders?

I love the composition and symmetry in the bamboo shot. It's absolutely perfect.

I actually live in the Vancouver area and your shots have inspired me to head down to Chinatown soon and try to capture it in a new perspective.

Thanks for sharing and the inspiration!!
