Slide and nonslide goodness from Film Soup.

There are a series of Velvia and Portia shots here — that is some C41 (which is more tolerent of lousy exposure) and some e6 slide film (which has to be exact). All developed and scanned by Reatha. It includes some of my learning curve shots on the Mamiya — and some shots that pushed it beyond the limits of the film and I have had to post process in Lightzone.

Thanks again to Reatha, and can I remind everyone that she does a superb job with the film — the lousy images are my doing :-). And she needs help with gear. From her Kickstarter update.

One week into our funding and we are quarter of the way to the $8500.00 we need to fix Marvin and get a new machine so that Marvin can become a backup.

This weekend I’m going to be out and about in Wellington taking some special images to add as rewards. Hopefully we can give it a bit of a boost. In the coming weeks I will put out some fun and very special rewards for filmies too that I’m sure you will love!

We still have a long way to go so all your help promoting and sharing the Kickstarter is super appreciated.

Mamiya 7, using Velvia 100 and Portia 160: post processing in Lightzone.

35 mm at Karekare.

This set of shots was taken with a Leica M6, using Ilford FP4 and a Voightlander 21 mm F4 lens.

Film processed in lightzone by using the “Hard” effect as I wanted to increase the crunchiness of the picture, accepting some grain. Developed and scanned by Reatha from Film Soup.


Two galleries here: both taken using the Nikon V1. The first is on a stormy evening, taken my me, using raw, and modified in darktable, all files as 16 bit pngs

And this set of photos was taken by my son, on the same camera. I have adujsted them using aonther programme, lightzone, that does allow fro some useful effects, hadnled jpg the son took from teh camera as he inadvertantly shot moives, but cannot handle Nikon raw files

The second lot of photos were taken on a fine evening climbing up Mt Cargill, the first set were taken in Roslyn only a few days earlier.
