Lovely images. There is something about medium format that makes images "pop" in a way it is harder to reproduce on 35mm.

Pentax S3 Autotakumar 85mm 1:1.8 Ilford FP3



This was the first photo I took with my S3 1961. Processed and enlarged in my darkroom the same year. I don't have a film scanner so I scanned the 50-year-old enlargement with a simple flatbed scanner. (Canon N1220U)

I really like the first one; the contrast of the natural elements in the foreground with the industrial scene in the background.

Old swede: Everything about that photo is great.

Spectacular shot. You did a great job on the enlargement, love the tones.

You're getting some great, vintage looking stuff with that C4 and Kentmere 400.

Phil, your photos always make me miss Vancouver, such a great city.

BTW, sometimes your B&W scans seem to have a pretty strong color cast. Is the lab scanning to 24 bit or 48 bit color?

Thanks Bucfan1234 & Colton.

Not sure how the Lab I use does the scanning, only that I'm paying for Medium Resolution scans. I get a CD back with "tif" files and do a bit of PP in Photoshop before I save them as "jpg" files, as Photobucket will not accept “tif” files. It might be what I'm doing in PSE that is causing the colour cast. I usually do an “Auto Smart Fix” or “Adjust Lighting” to fix the scans lack of contrast.

There are two basic ways to scan BW in terms of color space. One done with either 8/16bit gray scale. The other is 24/48bit RGB color where to get a the gray scale the scanning software sets R=B=G.

Editing software can bring in a gray scale and convert it to RGB for it's internal editing and if some shifting is going on in the RGB bits, I think that's where the color appears. You can just desaturate the image in the editor before you export it if you want to get rid of it.

I have scanned my stained BW negatives as color without the RGB values being set equal. And I get that brownish cast too but more so. I've tried to use it as a tone for the final output but when it is converted from the 48bit, wide ProPhoto color space in my RAW editor to the narrow 8bit sRGB color space, I'd get just what your picture is showing sometimes.

Thanks I'll try that next time.
