Thanks guys

I have to say that I am looking up to Agnostic for B&W street shots and to Tuco for MF shots whom I blame for planting the MF bug in this forum

Cheers,

Luc

Tuco, your images are always such an inspiration. You do some amazing work.

Tuco, the contrast is absolutely spot on in your train shot!

Thanks you guys. But don't forget, Agnostic is shooting MF too. A double-whammy for your MF bug.

Nice image, I like. I'm a Finn living in the states. I was pulling for the Canadians as they were home and all.
Thanks Nesster. I was rooting for the Finns in all their games :-)

Swift, too clever by half...love the composition. That scene was a real find.

Best,
Kevin

P. S. Meant to comment on the Fuji 200 (and 400) in your earlier post - you have way better luck with that film than I do. Do you have any tricks of the trade?

Thanks Kevin.
Fuji 200 has become my goto color neg film.
Lately I have just been setting the ISO to 100 for 200 film and just shooting away.
I seem to have good luck with it. I shot a roll of Reala and didn't get 1 shot that I liked. One of these days I will try another roll and hopefully get better shots.

Shot this today. I didn't want to wait for an hour for stand development so I tried a new agitation profile with Rodinal I got from someone. Develop for 18:00 min at 1+100 with gentle agitations for 15 seconds every minute for 3 minutes and then one inversion every 3 minutes after that. The negatives look okay. I'll have to try this again.

Edit: The given development time was for Acros. I can't say if it's valid for other films. And note I presoaked the film too.


Hasselblad 500CM, Zeiss Distagon CB T* 60mm f3.5, 100 Acros, ND2.7+Pentax #56 (O2) Filters, 45 seconds exposure

Great results, Tuco. Was the film rated at ISO 100 for that developing profile?

Yes, I shot at the rated ISO. But that comes with a disclaimer. I used my Pentax Spotmeter V; it has not been fixed to be "color blind". I also have a Minolta Spotmeter F and those two can differ by 2EV measuring the same thing under the same light.

Just tore up a roll into tiny little bits after two different spools got stuck and tore it so I'd already had to cut bits off. Left another roll in the can without developing it. Dammit.

Tuco...That is one spectacular shot. I have wondered about stand development vs. a moderately long development with very gentle agitation. Do you think this latest approach will work for 35mm as well as it did for roll film?

Thanks. I don't see why not. This was my first try at this dev time/profile and like I said it was given to me from another MF Acros shooter. But I wouldn't hesitate trying it with 135 Acros. You may want to consult the Massive Development Chart for anyone whom may have done it with 135.

Tuco, another great shot. Not if, but when I start developing my own film, I'm coming back this thread for all the tech advice here. Thanks for sharing the wealth.

Sorry I missed your response this morning. Glad things are working out fo you with the Fuji 200. I'll try underexposing it next time I shoot it and see what happens. I liked the 200 better than the 400, but wasn't really gassed with either of them. Reala on the other hand, has been really great for me. So far it's been my favourite color negative film (including Portra 160 and 400), but then again, I don't shoot a lot of people on film and that might change my opinion. Upshot is horses for courses, I guess. Past couple o' rolls I've shot have been B&W anyway and the current color roll in my ZX-5n is Ektar <g>.

Best,
Kevin
