Thanks! It always strikes me how the combination of tall buildings and tiny twisty streets downtown makes for some really different light than you get elsewhere in NYC -- in this case, a misty day really amplified the effect.

Death Fight

Started up a darkroom after a 20+ year layoff, and trying to re-learn with today's different films and developers. I still prefer enlarging and printing to scanning, but paper prints and the Internet aren't compatible. First roll of FP4+, Ilfosol 3. 1952 Leica IIIf, 1955 Summicron 50. Default batch scan on Epson V700. Just working on the processes. I miss Panatomic-X and Ethol UFG.

Tom,

Other-worldly picture, and good title! It is especially interesting and enjoyable to know that you used the old but high-quality equipment to achieve the result. Good work!

Reminds me of the time I found a pair of deer antlers in a field, arranged as though the buck had simply set them down to pick up and use again later. Nice to hear about your return to the darkroom. As it happens I just bought my first roll of FP4+ at my local camera shop about half an hour ago.

Okay, I'll play. Here are some from a recent roll. It's Kodak film, not sure which flavor. My camera is an MX and lenses were either SMC-a 35-105, or FA35/2.

Comments, critiques, et al welcome as always.

A very nice series, with superb tones throughout. How were they scanned?

The negatives were scanned when the film was developed. Sorry, I don't know more than that.

Sprocket Hole Photography

Wiki: "Sprocket hole photography is a style of photography that exposes the full width of 35 mm film, creating a photograph punctuated by the "sprocket holes" (perforations) along the edges of the film. It is part of the lo-fi photography movement. Usually, this style involves the use of a modified medium format camera, since a 35 mm camera ordinarily will not expose the edges of the film."

I used a Zeiss Ikon Ikonta 523/16 (1954-56 vintage) 6x6 camera, Rollei RPX 400 35mm film, a Gossen Profisix light meter and Eyeball Mark I distance meter and came up with images like these:

#1 - Thatched Cottage, Denmark:


#2 - Freegrazing Cattle near Nivå Bugt:


#3 - Windsurfing - the Sound:


#4 - Treeline and Clouds:


Yes, there are light leaks and scratches on the film. The film canister (an old Ilford one) did not fit very well inside the camera. Part of the "lo-fi experience", I suppose. I like the results as they are.

Scanned from print made in the darkroom.

Regardless of the sprockets, that APX400 looks nice!

Yes, so far I like it a lot. I usually shoot Ilford (HP5+) or Kodak (Tri-X), but now I decided to try something else, and it looks promising. Reasonably fine grain and good shadow detail.

Certainly a distinctive look, and somehow especially striking with the cattle!

How did you load the 135 film in the camera? I've seen some special kits to do this but they're rare and hence expensive.
