    Thank you. Probably because there's no sky! Haha, it was very overcast while there, but I overexposed everything because I didn't want any black shadows. It was a one time deal with the family.

    I had never shot C200 before, but I bought 3 rolls at a local film shop in Ghent. Turns out I really liked it so I bought 10 more rolls off Amazon recently. I took my 6d and Rebel Ti because they share lenses. I only brought my 35mm f2 IS and 135L. Here's a couple more C200 shots from the trip.

    I tried some of the Lomography 100 120 print film, this time in the Mercury 3D printed camera with a Mamiya-Press 50mm lens and 6x9 roll film holder. The film was digitized with a Fuji X-E2 and a Minolta macro lens. Instead of a tripod I clamped a ball-mount to the top of an 8 foot orchard ladder.

    Here is my first test of Cinestil 50 daylight color print film. I like this stuff a lot. It seems a bit like Fuji Pro400H, but nicer. This was shot in a Mamiya 645 with the 55mm/2.8 lens and was digitized with a Fuji X-E2 and a Minolta Macro lens.

    I've shot Cinestill D50 and T800 - they are very cool alternative film stocks. Try the 800. It's Tungsten balanced. Great for nighttime lights. I still have a roll of 35mm D50 and T800 in my film drawer... might have to give them another go.

    Are you home-developing using the FPP C-41 kit yet?

    I took a big pile of film in to my local shop to get caught up. The next rolls will be done at home. My local shop is having issues with processing 120, so may only accept 135 format going forward. They sent me to a new place, the "shot on film store", which actually uses Cinestill chemicals to process Cinestill. This new store is a little hole-in-the-wall stuffed with hundreds of vintage cameras for sale, as well as offering processing, a wide range of unusual film stocks, and even a fridge full of expired films. #shotonfilmstore

    I was having all sorts of problems with odd color blotches and uneven illumination on my camera scans. Yesterday I spray painted my negative holders flat black and made some black masks for the light pad, and now there is a huge improvement. Shot with a Mamiya C2 on Portra 160. I also finally tethered the X-T2 that I use for digitizing...should have done that long ago. I haven't opted for the $79 Adobe plug-in that allows you to control the camera from the computer. Just using the free Fuji X Acquire program that lets you save directly to the computer, eliminating the need to swap SD cards.

    Good tip. I use black cardboard masks over the whole light pad (with a hole for the larger negative sizes) sometimes. Some people go to the trouble of enclosing the whole light path from negative to camera. Another cause of odd- colored blotches in camera-scans of film is when there are water spots on the film. It is quite practical to re-wash and re-dry film if it needs water spots removed.

    Nice pictures and colors.
    I'm just a bit surprised by the curvatures, especially on the first photo (of the sidewalk in the foreground, and maybe 3rd), with a 35mm lens on a 24x36 camera body.

    I think the sidewalk itself was curved, so the landscape itself is exaggerating any perspective curves introduced by the slightly wide lens.

    I like finding that kind of thing and photographing it. Places which don't match expected perspective rules are especially fun, as are incorrect colors, exaggerated forms, and other naturally occurring drama.

    still trying out different films and I'm finding out that I like Ektar more than either 400H or Portra for people... of course, my family and I being darker skinned, it probably makes sense..

    I would agree. I like Ektar better for dark-skinned people. Portra is pretty good for red people with polka-dots, like me.

    Good idea. I keep stashing a fistful of rolls as each Fuji film is discontinued. Not enough to really get to know the film though, just enough so that I can properly regret it's passing. In the back of my mind is the idea that I should buy newly introduced film stocks instead, to encourage them to live on a while. At any rate I have a stock of Acros 100 and some Superia 800.

    I've not shot either (Acros or Superia 800), but I have no issue stacking a few rolls of C200. Haha. I'd buy more Agfa Vista, but not at $15/roll.... I'm not that picky as I started with digital cameras. I just know for sure that nothing digital lasts forever..
