Compendium 12 – Lost Relevance

 

This is Agfa Scala 160–but traditionally developed in D-76, instead of R100.  (Yes, it is somewhat a waste of the film, but I lost a roll’s worth of developer anyway…)

Granted, the negatives do not look as cool as the positives would have, but in this day and age, I can’t help but wonder if the relevance of transparency film has really passed.  Slide film is more difficult to expose properly, harder to scan, and certainly more difficult to develop. Given the ability to post-process (adjust blacks and contrast, mainly…) the resulting look is nearly identical.  Been there, done that…but otherwise hard to make the argument for reversal developing.

Sadness

Sometimes in photography, you have to document the sad with the happy…

And sometimes when you really want a snack (and can’t have one…) you get quite sad.

Testing, Testing…

Testing the 75 Cron on the Konica, and trying to figure out which film I had bulk-rolled, and subsequently mislabelled.

(Anyway, it’s a long story…pay no attention to the actual camera in the photo above).

The Flying Dog

Taken about 90 minutes ago;

I almost deleted it…but then realized the dog was levitating.

😂

It’s not perfect, but I like it for the sense of motion…and that I caught it at all.
