Colouring your world…In B&W film.  (Well, colour B&W film, developed in B&W chemistry and scanned in colour…which is actually B&W…ish).

First four Olympus; last one Nikon F100.

Yes…As some of you have guessed, my last post was surreptitiously taken on the M240.

Which is now gone.  And back.  And gone.  And back.

…and so on.  (But really gone…I think)

It was even worse, however:

The files, once processed to my liking, were run through a VSCO Portra 160NC preset, in a vain attempt to convince myself that I was wasting my time with film.

It appears, I may not be.

While painstakingly developed, these were not post-processed one iota.  (Save the watermark, of course…)

I now find myself in the unique position (unique for me, anyway…) of not having a digital M body.  My experimentation has since taken me in many conflicting directions…

The fact remains:  I love shooting film.  But I sure do miss the immediacy, reassurance, and convenience of digital.

I wish one habit could be kicked for good…

But that is unlikely.

BTW: 24 shots on the roll, and 22 keepers–the last one caught a wicked flare, so looked better B&W.  I’m happiest shooting film right now–I guess if I can get a roll like this, it is worth the effort and the wait.  Now If only developing was easier…

The New/Old OM-2

OM2S-2

Dropped by a Photographic Society swap meet yesterday, and manged to find a near-mint Olympus OM-2S for a paltry 90 Canadian Roubles–50/1.8 lens n’all!

Almost felt guilty doing it.

Anyway, seems to be in good working order…
