Thanks brkl, those sunrise shots were a bit of an adventure, my brother and I went to the top of mount Buffalo here in Victoria, Australia and camped the night to get the shots at about 5am. It was a very fun experience.

Hey everybody, I'm new to the forum and new to Pentax's as well, so I thought I would introduce myself by posting some of my film shots.

I started shooting for the first time about 5-6 months ago on my dad's old Canon A-1, but I've just happily purchased some Pentax equipment.

The photo's here are all from the Canon, I have not had the chance to develop and scan and Pentax shots yet, but please tell me what you think, and give me some feedback.

All shots on Canon A-1 with either Canon 50mm 1.4, Canon 35-70mm 3.5-4.5 or Vivitar 75-205mm 3.8. All shots are on Velvia 50, except for the basketball shot which is on cheap Fuji 400.
Nice! I like 2,3 and 4 very much.

Pepijn, the last one in that set is breathtaking! I wish I had it on my wall.
Thank you, that's the biggest compliment anyone can give!

Nice eerie atmosphere!

Hi Pepijn, some really nice stuff there. Can I ask a couple of technical questions.... are you scanning the negatives or scanning the prints? If you are scanning the prints, are you toning them or just printing onto warmtone paper? Finally, when you stand develop the Rollei Retro in Rodinal 1+100 how long do you leave it in for and do you agitate at all?

Thanks!

I am scanning the negatives with a Canoscan 8800F and the toning is done through the scan settings.

The stand development I do is really pure stand. Rodinal 1:100, agitate for one minute after filling the tank, leave for an hour, fix. I really like the results I get from this with Rollei Retro 100. It also gives great results with Neopan 400 though for that I shorten the time to 47 minutes.

Daughter Lilly took this with the old Franka she found in the house - this was the camera that got me started on the whole med fmt vintage thing. It's one of my oldest friends - lives in Sweden (the one with the cigar) and me. She had the camera on Bulb, and then set off the flash by hand, as this was night time. The film was probably Fuji 160 something, and I did a b&w conversion.

Thank you, also!

Time to slip in an actual Pentax photo - the 645, with the 75/2.8 on a #1 extension tube. Delta 100 in Fomadon Excel (Xtol) undiluted, this is #4 film on the liter, so the soup's starting to get good. Epson 4490.

If I could redo this, I'd stop the lens down another stop or two to get more berries in focus.

Such wonderful black and whites in here recently...awesome. The berries look great Jussi!
And I love the NL photos by Agnostic. Is that Amsterdam in most of those? Excellent atmosphere.

Kodak portra 400

As I go further in my photography, I find myself more and more shooting film. I burn about 1-2 film per month so I tend to choose 400 film to remain flexible.



I had the opportunity to have my images scanned for 1 as a promo from my lab.

Here is one of my recent shots. It was my first roll of portra, while I'm not so fan of grain (espcially on clear background) I love the colors, in particular with artificial lighting.

Thanks for comments,
Guillaume

You reuse the Xtol developer, Nesster? How is that working out? What are the rules when you do that?

I like this one, especially the motion blur.
