I can't get enough of this picture:

Fuji 400 (generic), FA 31mm, Pentax Super Program
I think someone is hooked...

Very nice results from that film. Especially since low light color shooting is a kind of photography that I tend to think digital owns.
Thanks. I was quite pleased. There's some motion blur but I can live with it. I just wish the scans were of higher quality.
I was planning on trying to use film for the whole concert, but brought my K7 just in case. It was a good thing I did too, because the batteries in my LX ran out about 1/2 way through the last band. I must admit, the K7 pictures probably look better, but the film pictures have more character

I just shot a roll of cheaper ISO 800 and wasn't that thrilled with it. I'm sure it was much easier for you with the K-7. My K-x does so well in low light, it has spoiled me. The K-x looks better at ISO 3200 than the Walgreens by Fuji 800.

Pentax ME Super + Porst 55mm F/1.2 + Fuji Superia ( X-TRA 4th color layer ) 200 negative film Homescanned ... The noritsu lab seemed to do a really good job as well ... I might try having them scanned over the lab

Mer - that's some painterly color you got here, and great expressions. The bokeh on the Porst wouldn't be called 'neutral' but I really like those orbs

Some TLR action.

I like the colors of Provia and it shows in these two shots.


Cheers,

It was much easier with the K7, but much more fun with the LX. Plus, having the larger frame was quite nice since my widest lens was 31mm and I was so close.
I'm going to another concert this weekend, and I've got some Fuji Superia 1600 and some T-Max P3200 to try out for the first time. Hopefully they turn out as pleasantly as the 800z did.

As always , try to nail the exposure with high ISO films. If in doubt , overexpose but do not go as far as blowing the highlights, although I would blow them in some situations. The difference in grain and color can be amazing if you expose correctly with those high iso films. My only experience with high ISO BW , is with Tri-X developed in microphen pushed to 1600 and 3200, pure magic The grain was visible in the 3200 pics but very pleasing..

and yes provia and velvia are some amazing films... I might have some TLR fun as well ? Seagull and velvia ?

Expired 400 TMax. I am not convinced that this was a good choice for landscape photography...


But it looks nice for street photography!

You can say that again. That's a great candid shot.

Nice shots, Luc. I tend to do the same thing. I don't know how many rolls I have of my favorite walking paths.

Just got back from five months in Yemen, where I had exactly one roll of film and a Holga. Everything else was digital, but here are two shots from the plastic lens:
