Just some unedited snapsh!ts going back a year probably. Starting with a field in Iceland, exciting stuff right?
A more recognisable image of Iceland.
Shooting 6×7 at the Burn House.
Somewhere in Edinburgh, on my way to see Makoto Shinkai at Scotland Loves Animation.
Probably wanted to use up the last shot so I could stick it in the dev tank.
Mounting prints for a PhotoSoc exhibition & auction.
And at the auction the following day.
Department Xmas party?
Scanned another roll, starting to get used to the workflow & how to avoid Newton’s rings; the ‘top’ 35mm row of the V600’s negative holder seems more susceptible to them than the ‘bottom’. Mix of St Andrews & a party at a friends’ place in Dundee.
Nailing focus when drunk~
Not really sure what I was going for, think maybe I was hoping the reflection would come out nicely.
Seems not everybody approves of being a subject…
…whereas others are more indifferent/bemused.
No flash, even though it looks a bit like it was.
Kinda wish it was more obvious/believable that she was looking at him…
…then him at her.
Fellow camera geek & spam aficionado, Doug.
It seems you shouldn’t push Tri-X to 1600 if you want any shadow detail.
Not nailing focus when drunk.
Honestly no idea what was going on here, but I suspect it involved the kittens.
Subject isolation! On the X100…
…and on an actual person!
Finally bit the bullet & bought a new scanner. Settled for an Epson V600, because I want to scan 120 & 135 but can’t justify the $$$ for a dedicated 120 scanner.
These are all with the f/1.1 & are the first shots I’ve got with it on full frame (rather than the crop of the NEX). Also my first time using Xtol developer & pushing Tri-X (to 1600).
Considering I was drunk for some of these (the dev too) & the 1.1 is hard enough to focus when sober & in daylight, I was pleasantly surprised by a few of them.
I’m plenty happy with the (lack of) sharpness from both lens & scanner too, perfectly usable.
Some of these were taken in Boston whilst I was there for a conference at the beginning of the month, the rest are around St Andrews.
