Saturday afternoon I finally had a chance to go do some photography. No great shots yet but I think I'm starting to get the scanning.

Acadia Nat. Park Bar Harbor Maine.

EOS 3
Flek 2.4 35mm
Fuji 400 superia

Ron,
Really like the mood in the second, and a great shot in the last one, too.


Can't wait to shoot some slide film.

Yes I think you have got the best your scanner will do.
What I like is that you have captured some shadow detail rather than just 'Letting it go' It seems to me many don't bother even when shooting with digital.
Nice Work

Looks good Ron.
I agree about the shadow details.

I particularly like #2

Thanks everyone for the comments.

I know these aren't great shots or subjects, I'm just trying to get the film and scanning worked out.
The sun was setting fast and I was hurrying to find shots.

I scanned the whole roll and somehow lost them all last night when company we had last night used my computer. It was late when I did these and didn't get them exactly as I wanted. I redid them this morning. Not much different but they are at least as I wanted.









And another from the top of Cadillac mountain.

Ron, there seems to be an improvement in detail in this second set. Love
that last shot!

Thanks Bill. I find that as I get older lack of sleep causes many mistakes.
I don't understand, I was going to be a hell raising 25 forever.

Ron, in the last shot on the right side, looks like the neg is curled. I've been
placing sleeved negs in thick heavy books to flatten them out. Maybe it's an
artifact in the neg itself, but looks like curling.

Yes its curling Bill. I have also been placeing them in a book. These are just as I got them back. If you set them down they turn into a C on its back. I wondered who would notice and know what it was. You are way ahead of me in film and scanning so I'm not surprised you knew what it was.

Ron, to help matters, I've been scanning with emulsion side up, then flipping
horizontal in LR2. I think Jules is where I got this idea. Getting the ANR
glass from BetterScanning will cure the curled negs once and for all.

I don't understand this.

Just had a senior moment, Ron, don't mind me. Yes, the shiny side up, dull
side down. When I get film from Wallies it is always curved towards the
shiny side, never dull side (the ma and pa place comes absolutely flat for
scanning, but costs more than twice as much for developing). Try it, Ron,
see how it goes.
