B&W - Scans of Tri-X
Lens: Rokkor primes Camera: Minolta X700 ISO: 400 
Posted By: ve2vfd, 12-20-2009, 01:44 PM

Well, here are a few of my first scans of Tri-X 400 film. Nothing spectacular, just tryouts. I've had the wet processing down pat since I was 15 but I am still learning proper scan and post process techniques for negatives. God I hate dust!!!

Scanning using a Plustek OpticFilm 7500 neg scanner and the Silverfast PS plugin.

First is a close up shot of white paper birch


Next, a sugar shack


And finally a steel hook on a wall


Thanks for looking!

Pat

Doing well Pat for your own home-grown processing.

Thanks Ash!

I have to admit that no amount of PP can simulate that wonderfull Tri-X grain.

Great work and nice scans. Be sure and post your impressions of the Plustek on the Darkroom/PP forum!

(I also share your disgust with the dust...)

Thanks Steve!

I'll be scanning and PP a few more and posting them in this thread as soon as I find the time. I'll also write up a little report in the Darkroom/PP forum, thats a great idea!

(other than dust control and sepia toning on one, it's amazing how little PP I had to do on the pics above)

Matt ... You know you want to process that roll of Tr-X! It's calling out to you! It's lonely!
