I like it. Nice capture
The sun must have been at the perfect angle, nice sillouhette of the building next to it! Great shot, I'm a huge fan of street photography (my specialty, as it were). Great shot!!!:mrgreen::mrgreen:
Out of curiosity, was the film grain on the negative? Or was it edited? Well first should I ask, digital or film??
Thanks for the comments!
Matty-Bass, the shot was taken with color film (all I had at the time) and then converted to B&W which seemed to have brought out the grain more.
Very interesting. I noticed that grainy sky right away, as well. I think it looks fabulous here, and so does that dark ominous shadow in the bottom right. Great shot! It would have been fun to see with a high speed B&W film, but you did pretty well with this conversion. :thumbup:
As for the high speed B&W film, I could just add some photoshop grain, its what all the digital people do anyway
darin, you may want to try to produce "mega grain" (as I call it ).
get a ISO 400 film (brand doesn't matter though I achived good results with HP5) and expose it at ISO 1000. then develop it in normal paper developer for 5 min. (no document developer or stuff, just straigth, normal developer). you should get a image of normal tonal range and pronounced grain. NOTE: you can develop even longer than 5 mins. but the grain will get unbearable
example for "mega grain": http://images.fotopic.net/y5vm6k.jpg
hope I didn't hijack the thread, just wanted to help
btw. I forgot to tell you how much I love that shot :thumbsup:
Santino: Hijack all you want, that is really cool. I do have a roll of HP5, can't wait to try it
Thanks for the comments
great! post the results or pm them to me, I curious if you'll like the effects.
Didn't you say that you can develop T-Max in print dev for Tri-x results, I do have a roll of T-Max that needs to be developed
yeah, that was me but that doesn't produce mega grain. it's just a "normal" process which produces a more dramatic effect, trix-ish
