One is film, one is digital.
Got the film scans back from my shoot with Marsha in Melbourne!! I’ll upload a full set soon. Unfortunately two of the rolls had wavy x-ray lines. What do you think about them, yay or nay?
I was running through some old film shots and I stumbled across some outtakes from Aidan Knight’s promo shoot. This is one of my favourites. The family just walked past and right into my shot. I thought it was pretty funny.
Here’s a link to the more serious digital version on their facebook page.
Shot on a Mamiya RZ67 II with Portra…800? 65mm f/4. LOVE that lens.
Been playing around with film scanning way too much today. It’s been ridiculously hard trying to get truer colours and tonal value out of negatives than I thought - especially without knowing quite what the outcome is supposed to look like. I’m definitely on the lookout for a pro-lab who I can send my colour film to for processing and scanning. I’ll probably keep developing and scanning black and white film on my own. With enough practice I think I can get efficient enough to get consistent results. Definitely not with colour, though!
This is Berkley and I. I took a photograph of her, and then I thought she might want to take a picture too, so we set up the same shot from memory and I told her what frame lines to look for. I think we did a damn fine job without the use of a tripod. The colour seems to be reasonable in these shots, but still, I have a lot of learning to do when it comes to film processing and it’s characteristics.

January 1st // Drying Negatives
Spent the evening developing some 120mm and 35mm black and white film. I’ve started to work a lot with film. There is something special about it, be it the process or the organic grain or just the fact that it is so manual and I am doing things with my hand. Either way it’s lovely. This image is inverted, if you’re wondering. Not sure why I did that, but what the heck, right? I can do whatever I want with my images. Creative freedom ftw.
