Roll Eleven


Well, I got back on my horse is what I did.

This one was also a bit of an experiment: Back to the Rigid Summicron (which is fantastic in B&W…) and my trusty Tmax developer (which, incidentally, has been discontinued by Kodak…)  Some of these are kind of busy; I was toying around with shadows, and a little bit of flaring.  The colors were gorgeous (I really had no business shooting B&W film…) but I wanted to see how it all would look.

Not only is this one of my favorite rolls so far (for its classic look) but this roll is also a testament to those who claim that film is too time-consuming (Yes, Greek-ish guy: I’m lookin’ at you…)

I shot this between 1600 and 1730 yesterday.  It was developed at 1830 while the kids were in the tub beside me, and hung to dry by 1900.  The frames were on the scanner by 2100, and processed this morning for your viewing pleasure.  It is feasible to do quickly, as long as there is method to your madness.

…And madness it is;  I hope you enjoy.

    I must concur, this is a marvelous set.

    Because of my impatience, I used to photograph, process, and scan the film on the same day… But it was still too time consuming, because that left little time for proper post-processing.

    Still, with all of the convenience of digital, it’s difficult to get digital files to look this beautiful… and often it’s not possible.


    PS. How quickly can you make it to Toronto this weekend? I have an international get-together going, as you’ve probably seen…. and Alberta is sort of another country.

      Thanks Peter. I appreciate your comments, and the invite to your “party”…I’d love to make it, but my Alberta passport has expired.


      Enjoy the weekend…looking forward to some photos!
