I use the hyperfocal method...
Not zone focusing? I'd figure zone would be more better for street. At least, that is what I was taught.
Hyper was more for landscape-ish photos.

Actually, zone focusing as well. Depends on the light and lens I am using.

Here's a few film scans from a long time ago (10+ years). All taken at Golden Gate Cemetery in Northern California. I believe I was using HP5 and a Minolta at the time.

Here is a quick scan of a stairway to no place. I have been experimenting with different scan settings and am not really liking much of the results. This was shot with the Canon AE-1 and Kodak ultramax 400 scanned to gray scale. I need to stick with good ole fashion Tri -x

MX + Nokton 58mm + Centuria 100


MX + Nokton 58mm + Centuria 100


LX + Cosina 55mm + Reala 100


Part of a test shoot-out to see what kind of bokeh the FA 50, Nokton 58, and the Cosina 55mm produce. Which do you guys like?

I was struck by this comment regarding scanner settings and films. I haven't yet settled on a good film scanner to purchase, but have been fiddling with a friends Dimage. I seems that we got better results from negatives with fairly obvious grain. I figure that it gives something for the scanner to focus on.

Steve, I am very happy with the scanner I have. the HP G3010. The software is what really makes a difference. I have been using vue scan and silverfast. Normally I scan with no PP done and so far that seems to work best for me. With scanning my own film, I also have the luxory of blowing up the images to larger sizes.
