Piccies from a foreign land


I got my films from my trip to the UK back yesterday and they are awesome!

I love my Hasselblad, it produces amazing images – so clear and full of glorious colour and definition in a way that digital images somehow aren’t.  The trouble is, scanning these amazing prints and showing them on here doesn’t show them how they are at all 😦

I tried scanning them at 600dpi, but the resulting images lack clarity, so I really need to do them at the full 1200 or higher – which means a scan time of more than 9 minutes per image – crappy scanner.

So, I need to buy a dedicated medium format negative scanner.

They cost AU$750

Add it to the list of stuff I ‘need’ 😦

Expensive hobby, this film lark.   Looks like I might be getting familiar with home developing sooner rather than later!

Aaaaaanyhoo…  I do have some initial scans to share – they’re pretty much all of my kids and family, but hey, its my blog, I can share if I like!   I’ll probably redo these over the weekend – hopefully they will come out with a bit more ‘pop’

Oh, and I’ve done this on my work laptop which has a very bright screen, I don’t know if the colour/contrast on these pics is actually correct or not 😦
