REAL PHOTOS

Here are some scans from negatives. My new film scanner arrived today, and this is a rough try-out, so don’t mind the odd bit of debris on the negative, etc. Its Plustek 8100ai. Photos all on Delta 100 or mostly Delta 400 processed in Ilfotec DD-X, which is a pain as it is fiddly, expensive and doesn’t fix very easily. Leica M6 with a Zeiss planar 50mm 2.0 lens…
Further post when I get the hang of the scanner!! These, (from 16bit tiffs) got a quick tweak in Capture one, but the shadows are all over the place, and a white border would be nice too…

Treat them like old records. Look at each one for a little while until your eyes re-calibrate to the world of grain. then after a minute or so, they begin to ‘pop’.
