More fine work. You really harvested some good shots from that trip.
Thanks Tuco.
I'm pretty happy with what I got from the trip. I shot 2 1/2 rolls of 120 TMAX and so far, I've developed 2 rolls and I have 14 shots that I'm quite happy with.

Really nice results. I also do stand development with Rodinal on occasion. I've been wanting to try stand with HC-110 at 1+100 for an hour.
Thanks Tuco! Yes, Im quite pleased with the results and will propably use this method more in the future as well. Lots of film waiting to be developed..

Heres one more. I had to take off all the sharpening from this pic as for some reason flickr seems to boost the sharpening on the uploaded pics and the rock in the front was just way too sharp.

Scan

I really like all your medium format shots. How do you scan them? Do you guys scan the print or the negative?

I have got a Bronica SQ-A for medium format shots (it was a choice I made because of my enlarger can only do up to 6x6cm negatives). I have not got a flatbed scanner and only and old 35mm film scanner so I cannot share my medium format shots, but would be really interested what method you use for scanning.

I do pretty much all my scanning with an Epson V500 Photo. They are pretty affordable and do a pretty good job for most purposes.
I've seen them as well as older 2450 models on craigslist for pretty low prices.
If you get the V500 new it comes with the latest version of Photoshop Elements which I find indispensable for dust removal.

So you just simply scan the 120 negative as a document? I mean can you get a proper scan/resolution out of scanning a 120 film negative in a flatbed scanner?

Thanks

I have a V500 at home, which does a nice job and is fast to use and cheap. I have also access to more expensive V750 at my work. There is a difference in IQ of course, but propably not so significant that I would let go of my V500. The following pics have been scanned using the V750:










Bronica GS-1
Zenzanon PG 110mm Macro
B+W 72E orange filter
TMAX100
Rodinal 1+100 60 min

Fish4570: Really like your eye for the shadows!!!
Quicksilver: Do you prefer the TMAX 100 for landscape shots. I just have not been happy with my Tri-X for landscape?
My first roll of Delta 3200, shot with the Pentax ME Super with M 50 1.4
Shot at 1600 ISO metered +1 off the face and still a little dark.

Hi,

To be honest I dont have much experience with film yet. I have a small stock of expired Tmax 100 that Im using. I have been quite pleased with the results so far. I have tried Illford delta 100, but I prefer the look of Tmax more.

Nice shot btw!

These flatbed scanners are dual source scanners for both reflective scanning with documents and transmission scanning for film.
