Through the dust

Let’s have an update in July before it’s too late 😉

I’ve been spending more time in the darkroom lately. As a result, I have spent less time in the ‘lightroom’. It’s the only easy way to share some work, but I’m not fully happy about this one. The print (done by a Fuji lab) of this one has rich blacks; the scan (done by me) doesn’t. It has grain. Not strange for a scan from an 800 iso colour film, but still, really different from the print. Then again, the lab also does ‘scan and print’, it’s not a fully traditional print; why then does their print have the full blacks that my scan is lacking? Probably it’s my scanning techniques (or should I just blame the equipment?).

I tried my best… I’d rather spend time working on my printing techniques in the darkroom, though.

So… I hope to do errrr… a bit more than one update each month, but I’m sure the updates will be irregular. Good to be back, though.

Equipment: Mamiya C3, 80mm lens
Film: Fuji NHG II 800

    You see this is very nice image, the light is great contrast perfect and those colors plays very nicely. This image creates for me something.
    Looking at your industrial series I must say that light is dull there…
