@twitch and wuzet. I like your shots- they're playful and a bit out there. Also fairly rough in terms of colour and tonal rendition- very appropriate in the context.

(underexposed unfortunately)




More baby pictures from me. Spotmatic SPII, Takumar 55/1.8. Fuji (Walmart) 800 speed. Wide open or close to it, IIRC. Developed at Costco. I did a bad job scanning (usually I get them done when developed).... I really need to read up on how to do better scans.

Oh no you didn't, you don't want to see samples of my ISO 800 films scanned by myself! Nasty color casts and giant dust specs everywhere!

Sure, post them! The last time Costco scanned some of mine they were really dusty so I figured I could scan my own dust at home.... :P

I have 3 more rolls of this film to use. Ugh. I'm not a fan.

Your scans look fine to me! I don't need to visit the optometrist, do I??

A test Platinum print - I'm experimenting with different paper for an upcoming project, this paper is my favourite mainly because it is heavy at 460GSM so it stays flat after coating with the emulsion*. I apply the emulsion with a glass rod, and I paint in the edges with a fan brush. I like the edges to have character, even as a student when I was printing on silver halide used to deliberately tear the edges, sometimes before I exposed the paper. This particular image is a contact print from an 8X10 negative, I have used this specific image to test the printing papers I have used over the past couple of years.


Ebony SW8X10 with Rodenstock APO-Sironar-S 240mm f/5.6 with green colour filter 1/125th @ f/22, slight tilt used on the rear standard.

*many lighter papers develop curling, and some wrinkle in annoying ways. So having a paper that stays flat is very important - unless you want the wrinkles and waves for added effect.
