God.. im speechless. love the tone.

Thanks very much, fearview. Oddly enough, the warm tone is a relatively new thing for me. I guess you could say it is subject-driven in that it seemed natural to use warm tones for certain things I've photographed since moving to British Columbia 3 years ago. Prior to that my work was always straight black and white or selenium toned. Here's a shot done with Pentax gear, titled Gabriola Shoreline Number 12.

Buying a 4x4

Well I have been thinking about buying a used 4x4 to have better access to many hiking trail in the back country of BC.
But then again, I have had second thoughts

Poor parking job

Thanks Luc. There were stage lights flashing everywhere, so metering was at best an educated guess! f/1.4 - f/2 with shutter speed of 1/60 or sometimes 1/125.
I didn't do the development, but I'm happy with how clean they are.







John Poirier - that's a nice shot and almost abstract for me

The other week I went to a local hiphop concert, decided I would simply take my MX and try shooting Tri-X and neopan 400 at 1600iso. It was great fun but I was really unsure what the results would be like. Thankfully there were some shots that I liked:

Pentax MX, Tri-X @1600iso, M50 f/1.4


And this one is super!

And Frank... Oh, well. Let's say your work is one of the reasons I decided to try film.
Thanks.

Thanks Octav. It's good to know that we have the same film-shooting hobby

Hi Frank,

You have every time great photos.

And in fact film is fantastic is diferent, i need to put some more of my photos here.
Thanks. Glad you like them too

QuoteOriginally posted by jgredline Quote

@Frank, Nice work again. You always get fantastic colors and really those flower shots are among some of the nicest I have seen.

Thanks Jave. I really love the color from fuji reala, a bit over punchy, but really nice for flowers and scenery.

Normally I don't shoot my kids w/ film, especially w/ the Reala. The skin tone look abit to red or pinkish to me. But I had a few shots left after the flower shootout, the kids were pretty fun subjects when playing in the pool, couldn't resist but snapped these (also done by Super Program + DFA100WR macro on fujifilm Reala 100):











And I really love the last one, taken when my son was feeding the fish w/ bread, that split of freezing moment really made the shot:

Luc, it is amazing the places these hulks can end up.

Here's how screwy my mind is: when you write 4x4 I'm thinking 127 film and a baby TLR. I just bought one because I had a roll of film. And it is small and cute and just right for the back country...

+2 on those!

Frank, excellent photos, I love your kids! I see the red cast as well, though I like it - it probably is possible to minimize the cast in pp.

Thanks frank! Simply awesome colours in your photos BTW, and good photos all round. I'm still a bit amazed that film can look this good in colour. I wouldn't have believed it a year ago.

Jussi - I can see you love the old cameras (don't we all to some degree??)
I'm toying with the idea of getting a nice TLR for medium format at some stage, but I have no idea where to start. However a P645 is also tempting.

Back to Ektar for another shot, this one being a nice Mustang I spotted in the city here recently. Spoke to the lady owner briefly and ended up emailing the shots to her:

Very nice capture, mr. Javier, sir.
A fine example of street photography. I wish I could get my hand on your "cheap" film.
I love the color rendering.
Do you expose the film at it's rated ISO?

So far, I experienced such ugly color shifts with cheap Kodak and Fuji. Skin is turning dark red or yellow in the underexposed areas, and both have the tendency to cast an overall green tint.
Even Ektar is turning blue-ish. But at least the grain is fine.

!
To be honest, I have started to over expose the 100-200 speed films by about 1/2 stop or so and underexpose the 400 speed films about the same. I think it has more to do with Target Processing, but it seems to work for me.
