Here ya go, Mandababe! These are some pictures I have been working on lately, when not working on the movie behind the scenes stuff I already posted. None of these are to final print at this time. Any and all comments appreciated! I'm posting links because I think I made them kinda big and don't want to throw the thread size off... http://home.comcast.net/~mindy414/pics/Untitled-1.jpg Ilford HP5 400, printed on Paterson VC Pearl RC, 3 1/2 or 4 filter (can't recall, wasn't keeping notes at the time...) I'm not sure where my dissatisfaction with this one lies. I've been looking at it occasionally for 2 months, and I still can't pin it down. I think it's too contrasty sometimes, but then I look at my print of the original unfiltered and I definitely prefer this. I also look at another crop I have, and again I definitely prefer this. I really like it but something doesn't feel right yet... http://home.comcast.net/~mindy414/pics/Untitled-2.jpg Kodak TMAX 400, size 620, printed on Ilford MGIV RC Pearl... This is a pic that I took on my first ever roll of medium format, which was also the first time I ever used the Kodak Duaflex III I got from my great grandmother. (See previous post about that for more info.) So the whole thing was an experiment, not knowing how the camera would even work. I didn't get a lot of good shots on that roll, it was also weird for me using such a wide angle, which I have never used, and also just composing when everything is backwards!) But I do like this one, even though it isn't a great picture, there is just something about it that appeals to me. Though I would be much happier if the hydrant was in focus. I actually went back today to try and recreate this shot using my Holga. We'll see how that experiment goes once I develop that roll... http://home.comcast.net/~mindy414/pics/Untitled-3.jpg Ilford HP5 400, printed on Ilford MGIV Pearl RC... I've been working on this one a lot lately. I'm having trouble figuring out how to deal with the top, because there is a faint hill and some faint clouds... they look too faint, but if I try to burn them in more, they are really grainy, which doesn't fit with the rest of the pic. So I've been trying to dodge them out, but I don't know if I like that either... I definitely like the sanded out carrier look with this one, but that carrier is tooo sanded out because I'm getting megasprockets. I need to see if there is a better one available. http://home.comcast.net/~mindy414/pics/Untitled-4.jpg Ilford Delta 3200, printed on Ilford MGRC Cooltone Pearl... This was my first roll of 3200 speed film. I took a lot of night shots, just guessing at the exposures. This wasn't one of those tho. This scan is not good at all, because it looks like the glass of the scanner was really smudgy and you can see it in the dark areas, especially in the lower left corner. I am not happy about that.
