It’s hard for me to work with colour, especially colour negative. Being somewhat (or a bit more than that) colourblind, it is tough to see whether I got the colours right.

Then again, if they aren’t right for you, they might be right for me. As seen through the eyes of the photographer.

Fuji PRO800Z is a great, great film. But it was real hard to scan. I had some prints from the lab, and the scan never looked anywhere near the same. I’m sure I didn’t get it right, but then again, if I look at the print from the lab, I know they have really exaggerated the colours. A lab shouldn’t do that.

So, the black isn’t black.

But the colours are interesting. Aren’t they?

Stay tuned for two more in these series… If I manage to get a decent representation of them, that is.

Bronica RF645, 65mm lens, Fuji Pro 800Z.

A word of thanks to these tips, especially forgetting about the film profiles was very helpful.

    Hej, I already knew this picture! No surprise this time…
    I don't see any black in the picture, what are you talking about?? Looks more like a greenish dark-gray. Or is that the point?

    Thx for the tip about VueScan though. I need to remember that.

    Really like these colours. Kind of retro look… Nice to print large (say 1 square meter)!
