    Hey, I know you shoot film -- care to share the camera, lens, film developer, etc?

    I like the last two, although these seem a bit contrasty and not very sharp for my tastes. Are these scans of prints or the negatives?

    yeah, they're scans of prints. I have a tendency to sacn my negs at a high dpi, generally too high to post. The camera is my Zenit 12 with a 35mm tokina lens. Yeah, it's soft, but it was cheap at the time. Now I have a 35mm super takamur (pentax) that is much better. The film is tri-x developed in d-76. The first shot is in a small woodlot behind the cemetary where #4 was taken. #2 was taken at Indian Mounds Park, #3 was taken in the woods behind my sister's house. The final shot is a little taste of my interest in cemetary sculpture. I have three or four more shots on the topic, and I'm waiting for some cemetary shots I took on memorial day.

    Good for you. Keep shooting, learn your equipment and play to it. You did know you can scan black and white negs on your regular scanner didnt you. Not have to print them at all.

    Cool thanks for the info. I really like the cemetary sculpture. I shoot a 50mm f/1.4 Super Takumar on my Spotmatic, so big thumbs up from me. :thumbup:
