First shots with a film camera. PZ1p and Kodak ultramax 400. Lens was a Pentax K 50mm f/1.4. Random stuff around house

99 cents asa 200 film

Thanks for the comments on this image folks...I was wondering if anyone would have noticed I flipped it 180 degrees. It is actually upside down. I think I am going to print it this way for my office.

Steve, I did read the comment, but did not realize you noticed it was upside down.

It has given me some new ideas to try.

I like that (with moderation).
I did the same thing with one of my digital image and it kept people wondering...




Cheers,

Ok, this kicks total butt!
Thanks!

And yes I did notice the watery sky in that shot.
In fact I did the same with one of my pictures except that the water was even more still than in yours. Hardly anyone noticed despite the obvious fact that there was something wrong with the perspective which meant the photo would have to have been taken under water.

Just shot my first roll of slide film...

Kodak Elite Chrome 200, ME Super, FA50 1.4





Wow am I impressed. Have read other people's raves about slide film on the forum. They weren't exaggerating.

Best,
Kevin

Nesster, that 160NC looks great and the photos are stellar. I just loaded a roll of 160VC today. I'm a total film noob and am working my way through the different films I want to try.

I'm not really happy with how soft my posted slide images are. Originals are waaay sharper. Picasa resize is doing a number on them, I think.

Anyhoo, I consistently enjoy your film posts, whatever your shooting. You even made that Superia 400 look good...something I haven't managed to do yet

Best,
Kevin

wow excellent.

thanks Kevin - the Superia needed a bit of levels work to start looking OK... I far prefer Ultramax.

How did you scan the slides? I found slide scanning required a whole different learning curve than negatives. I actually prefer negatives.

I'll second that "wow - excellent" on Red's B&W. Photo is dynamite and I like the BW400CN film, too.

Thanks for tips on Superia. I've got a roll of Ultramax to shoot after I finish with the 160VC. Did some of my own scanning of negatives with an HP 4370 flatbed with mixed results. The dust was a real killjoy. To avoid the issue with the slides this time, I had the lab that developed the slides do them (Lo-Res 300 dpi 4X6 - 1200X1800). They look great on my monitor locally and I'm really happy with what I got from them. I uploaded to Picasa at 1082X1600 and I chose to share here from Picasa's link at 800. What you're seeing is two steps out of my control.

If you know of a better way to post pics here or another photo sharing site that would do a better job, please let me know. I've got a Flikr account, but the interface is so kludgy to find and view specific photos or a specific photographer.

Best,
Kevin
