I use my parents, you can't do anything without a membership. What do you mean you know some things I don't?

haha sorry chads poor grammar, i mean some things you don't have to have a membership like I think prescriptions you can fill there without one. I just need to break down and get a membership I think, it just sucks when I walk out spending 200 bucks on paper towels and dog food along with a handful of other things I don't need. haha

I feel you, may parents always end up spending 600 on tons of shit when they only woulda spent 200 if we bought what we needed. At my Costco, you gotta show your membership card as you walk in and again when you checkout so you can't do anything without a card

crap scanner, sorry about the lines
you can usually get rid of the lines by cleaning off the little square guides that are near the top of the scanning bed. there should be two of them; they are little squares of glass. clean them off and you may be better. my scanner used to put a nasty blue line through my shit but cleaning those lines did the trick.

Ok it may just be me being a picky digital bitch, but how do you guys get such clean scans? I have a V600 and I use Epson Scan (tried vuescan, but don't even get me started). My scans always seem dull and never sharp, unless I sharpen the shit out of them in photoshop/lightroom. Sorry guys... still somewhat of a film noob. 

i scan at super high dpi. when flickr something generates a pic, they more data they pull from when they generate their sizes, the better the pics will look (i think at least. this is the principle behind cameras like the F65 or the Penelope Delta, the idea of giving something a "better" pixel).

I also add a layer of smart sharpening to all my pics, which really gives them that edge.

yea i scan as a .tiff at 2400 dpi ,3 times or w/e its called, and 48bit srgb. But i dont use epson scan i use vuescan. Then i use LR to sharpen/color correct

^ Gotcha. My workflow usually consists of scanning around 3200 dpi as a negative. I'll invert it in photoshop and color correct there as I find I get the best accuracy doing so. I found it's like editing a RAW vs. JPEG file (in terms of digital). 

I'll have to play around with my scanner to see how I can get the best results then, could also be the way I'm loading the film into my scanner.

just got two rolls B&W developed at costco, any one try scan with printer?
I scanned that photo of Kendrick on my printer and it didn't look half as good as the scan they did for me at walgreens. Just pay the few extra bucks for the CD super worth it.

I haven't shot anything in so long, especially film. But heres some flicks from a school assignment.





What camera?!/!?
Dec 13, 2013 @ 23:34
this was the first roll of velvia ive ever shot. the colors are so intensely bright and contrasty in some of the shots. these two are unedited 



Dec 13, 2013 @ 23:49
i thought it was interesting to see how the velvia compared to fuji 400h pro. the photos on the left were with fuji 400h pro and the photos on the right were with fuji velvia 100.

you can see why its so good for nature shots here. the colors of the rocks and the mountains have a lot more detail and contrast and the blues in the sky and water are more vibrant


the colors look pretty funky on the velvia here but all of the shades of blue are pretty amazing where you can see the difference in the deepness of the water


the fuji 400h pro handled the low artificial light much better here but thats not what the velvia was made for

nice study nicholas
Dec 17, 2013 @ 01:34
im officially caught up and scanned all of the film that i have and put out the stuff that i like from it. i just recently shot a wedding kind of, and am actually kind of stoked for those shots, because i've learned that i don't like shooting landscapes. these are what i liked from my time in california in september.

^flying in that plane over sf would be amazing
Dec 17, 2013 @ 09:53
Good shit everyone, one question though. I'm about to order some film for 120 idk to much about it, anybody got info.

^flying in that plane over sf would be amazing
it was surreal. i was hella pissed though because i was suppose to fly the day before, aka, the finals of the america's cup, but was hella sick and never left the bed. i talked to the pilot though and he was saying he flew over every day of the race.

Good shit everyone, one question though. I'm about to order some film for 120 idk to much about it, anybody got info.
look at nicholas's comparisons above. you dont really have a ton of choices because a lot of stocks have been discontinued.

These look so good.

@_Nicholas I second the comment that that is a good study. I'm going to keep the images of the velivia shot's in my head when I shoot some landscapes.
