Film diaries: the first roll

Film diaries: the first roll | black and white film photo | Scoop.it

Some months ago, I acquired a vintage Nikon F2 Titan in the hopes of both fulfilling a longtime photographic dream, as well as perhaps shooting a little film again in the name of stimulating creativity. Many of you have been anxious to see the results; I bet none more so than myself. The trouble is, I feel that I’ve set a standard here that I must uphold; if the images from this roll don’t meet that standard, then I think there’s going to be a lot of hand-wringing, rude gestures and cries of ‘pah, amateur’. In this post follows the highlights of that first roll.

Jeff Beddow's insight:

Here is a strange tale of a photographer who rephotographs his arduously developed 35mm film with a home-made copy stand based on a Nikon D800e digital camera and tries to understand the tone maps that result.  It is interesting, and the photographer is experienced and skilled, so it is not as comic as it sounds on the surface.  I am writing a reply to the post, as the issue of digital vs analog photography is resurfacing with the renewal of interest in film among students artists and Hollywood celebrities..

Sometin´s going on! I left my M9 in favour of a M4-P, went from digital to analog and now Ming Thein doi´n the same?!

Jeff Beddow's comment, March 19, 2013 1:22 AM
I shoot with a Nikon D-700 and a whole raft of film cameras, including a Leica M3, and a 1923 Agfa/Ansco 8x10 studio view camera. Film cannot be superseded by digital yet, and there is a good reason for that which is a bit technical and difficult to explain, but easy to see.

Its always lovely to hear the real photography experience! Thank you indeed.

Well, it's not just a single-use camera. It's not just a film camera instead of digital. And it's not just black & white instead of color. Nope, it's a B&W film disposable camera. That's right. B&W. Film.

Do-it-Yourself: Colour Film Developed in Rodinal - Lomography | black and white film photo | Scoop.it
Colour film is different from black and white film in that the emulsion side has dye coupler layers, which interact with the C41 developer to form dye clouds (that's a bit of a simplified explanation, but you get the idea).

B&W film in the snow fields.
Jeff Beddow's insight:

I have been spending too much time with digital photography this year.  I created this topic to keep me involved in B&W film photography.  To be really involved, I needed to put some film in the Leica and get out into the fields today.  It was marvelous.  It was the real deal.
