Nice one Colton! Reminds me that I had another Bronica shot I wanted to share.

Zenza Bronica ETRC, Zenzanon EII 75/2.8, Fujicolor Superia 100
This lens and film is a killer combo, great colours and that elusive 'almost 3D' look. It's a great shame that Fuji discontinued S100.

This is an iffy low-res lab scan but having just received an Epson V550 for my birthday it's hi-res from hereon in.
Thanks Edmund.
I never got to try Superia 100 in 120 format. I don't know that Fuji ever sold it in the US. I shot some 120 Superia 400 and was very impressed with it.
I've pretty much settled on Ektar as my #1 choice for color film.
Hope to some of your scans from your new scanner posted here. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.

Nice. I'd love to see a room of your MF photographs. Nice geometry and color, and the green wire and leaves under the wall with the flaking paint are great details.

Love the expression. Maybe almost too centered but could stand a little cropping on the right.

That sounds like a film vs digital analogy to me; I was just trying to point out that there's no such thing as pure unadulterated/uninterpreted output in the real world of photography.
When I use to do my own color prints from color negatives ( I have a 6x7 color enlarger), there was nothing to tell me what was the correct color. I did not have access to some calibrated color standard to match against for that particular film. And if I did, once again it would still be making a judgment call.

I had a color analyzer to help me but that was calibrated to me hand-processing a color picture until I said, "yeah, that's the right color". But was it? It was slow, tedious and full of trial and error to make a print. It would take all night to do a handful of prints.

Hi everyone,

It is nice to see some amazing work. I recently started shooting film. I enjoyed it so much that I now primarily shoot film.

Very interesting image and beautiful tonality.
What film is that and did you process yourself?

Hi LesDMess
Thanks. I develop and scan at home. Film used was Kodak TriX 400 shot at box speed. Development was done with D76 (standard recipe for trix 400). I scanned the negative using a Canon scan 9000.

Two of my guns:



Colt 1860 Richards conversion and Smith & Wesson model 3 Schofield, both replica made by Uberti. Shot with my LX, 50 mm f1.4 and Portra 160.

Apologies for the imperfect composition but I shot in a hurry, still I like how the film captured the blue and nickel finish of the metal and the walnut of the grips.

I don't think the Kodak 100UC and 400UC are represented much here. The latter was initially introduced as Portra 400UC then they dropped the Portra to plain 400UC and then later they dropped 400US and consolidated the other 400 variations to Kodak Portra 400. The former was replaced by Kodak Ektar 100. Both were sharp, vibrant films and I recall Kodak represented them as being scanner friendly. Kodak was handing out free samples at the 2004 PMA show in Vegas and was my first chance to try them out.

This is Kodak 100UC taken at the Reno Air Races.


This one is 400UC. I don't believe the innovative counter rotating Merlin powered Precious Metal ever won the races?



Both had very similar color contrast characteristics that was very easy to work with.

This on 400UC.

So do they call you the "Schofield Kid" because you have a Smith & Wesson Schofield . . . from the movie Unforgiven.

If you mean imperfect due to the rotation angle then I think it adds to the picture. Perhaps a little bit more even and I think you have room to spare for cropping.

Uberti - An Italian company that makes replica guns of the Old West. There must be a tie-in to the Spaghetti westerns . . .
