New film, new chemicals, new scanner, new dresses…

I can’t do it any better than this folks.

Fuji Pro 400H @ f/3.2, 1/250s.

Liking this film…a tad less magenta than the Portra.  Seems to require a tiny bit more development.

Thanks to the lovely models…you’re all hired!

    I love this photo – it has such a fresh feel to it. It’s mostly the light, partly the film. It’s grainy yet holds sharpness very nicely. You got Baby J’s eyes bang on.

    This shot reminds me why I don’t like to shoot wide open, regardless of the lens. It would have been nice to have the Producer and Baby J’s sister in focus. That would mean f/4 or even f/5.6. in this light, easy: shutter speed would be 1/60 at the slowest, or 1/125 at the slowest if you rated the film at 800. My point – wide-open shooting has its trade-offs, especially when you don’t have time to consider details like DOF.

    A supplementary point: the Zeiss 80/2.8 is sharper at all apertures than the Contax Zeiss 80/2. The difference, to my eyes, is significant enough to make me prefer the Hasselblad over the Contax. If it means that sometimes my film has to be one stop faster, so be it!
