Yea it's kinda puzzling what it is

I used a macro with a flash behind the film very low tec.


I use an broken ipad as a backlight with macro tubes, so even lower tech Lol
My 2017 resolution is to finally buy a Scanner.

You would be far better off to go to the APUG.org forum, to cover all aspects of film photography: from equipment to techniques, to processing, to alternative processes

Wilt, apug is ok but trying to learn about or discuss anything remotely untraditional results in some pretty rude comments. There is talk of merging dpug and apug but this has been "talk" for quite a long time. There is also many people on there who seem to think everyone should have read all of Ansel Adams' books and educated themselves before asking a question etc.

This pic "Central Park Carousel" changed the way I worked in film. It was made with an Eos 3, 24 to 70 f2.8 MKii HP5 standard development at B&H. I had B&H develop this roll of film because I flew into NYC and I did to want to drag the film through X-Ray. I normally used the Dark Room for developing, still do for color. Well, B&H did a crappy job scanning the image it was very noisy and over sharpened. (I still like B&H and have spent $$$$ there, they just did not please me here) So I bought a V800 scanner and rescanned this shot myself. I rescanned a lot of my film shots. I liked the control it gave me. Because I was happier with the results when I scanned it, I learned how to develop film at home to control that part of the process. I used the Stand Development method. It is simple, forgiving and like auto ISO for film. I do use Standard development methods for Silver Gel prints or 3200 film to get less grain. But for scanning, I prefer, Stand Development because of its simplicity and the fact I can put two different film makes and ISOs in the same tank.

Developing film at home is great. It is easy and somehow it seems easier than tossing the film into an envelope to mail it.

Recently I have learned ho to make my own prints. So two years after shot this I am completely self sufficient in film :) I shoot mostly medium format, I don't feel there is enough resolution in 35mm. I started sooting a little 4X5 too, but have not had any results worth bragging about yet. I will revisit 4x5 this summer.

Thats a really nice image and great work. I dont do my own developing although i have considered it and may at some point. I do my own scanning on a v700. It gives pretty good results as far as I'm concerned.

You should try developing on your own it is simple and satisfying. Read this on stand development. http://jbhildebrand.co​m …development-with-rodinal/ (external link)

That's pretty interesting, and a new process to me. I may have to give it a shot!

Yes, it is unfortunate that APUG has its share of 'old-school hard core fanatics' that fail to see digital as an extension of the craft/art of photography. Stupidly so, as one cannot mention 'scan' (by forum rules, no less) other than as away to post a photo...god forbid. Yes 'digital' is effectively a four letter word. Kind of like how 'acrylic' is a four letter word to an oil painter. Or how 'briefs' are offensive to the boxer wearers.

But underneath that hardcore panache is a core of expertise found primarily among traditionalists who have knowledge accumulated with equipment familiarity spanning five or more decades of use. The knowledge displayed typically on POTN seems superficially deep in comparison to the discussions and knowledge sharing on APUG.

Developing is quite easy. I have been developing B&W for a long time and finally started developing C-41 a few weeks ago.
Steps are pretty simple and the tanks, reels, and chemistry pay for themselves quickly.

I've always put off trying C41, I remember my Dad tried it many years ago and have horrific results!

I bought the 1 liter C-41 kit from the FPP and it works great. You have to get the chemistry up to 102 degrees but the processing is much faster than B&W and all C-41 film has the same development times. (unless you are pushing or pulling). I am developing 120 for less than $2 a roll.

I bought the kit when they were offering two rolls of cinema film for free, have yet to use either though.

Wish B&H still sold it with free shipping. FPP sends it via air mail priority which is actually against the law, and the reason why B&H doesn't sell it anymore since discontinuing ground shipping.

I also wish B&H still shipped chemistry (mainly Dektol and D-76 for me). I got Rapid Fixer from them recently so it is not all chemistry but there is a "no fly list".
Freestyle has a C-41 kit and they are in California. Maybe a better option for you.
