Some more photos

Tuesday, November 13th, 2007

I thought I’d share some more photos I’ve taken recently. These are cross-processed — in this case, that means they were shot on slide film but processed in print chemicals. That’s why the colors look weird. Some of these were taken at the same time as the Retina B&W photos I posted the other day. These were taken with my trusty Pentax K1000.

    the color treatment works so well with the autumnal colors in the photos. brilliant idea.

    I love that stuff! In photo class, I mostly used my Dad’s Pentax K1k as well. It’s older than I am, but amazing versatility. I’ve got a few pieces myself, but I still beg my dad to hand over the Pentax if he ever tires of it. I’ve thought of just finding one on eBay, but you never know what you’re going to get with those — and I know my dad’s is pristine!

    Great shots, great film process, great camera.

    What are you using to scan those? Are they from print or negative?

    Thanks Noah, I love my K1000. I have a couple of other cameras that most would consider “better,” but they lack the character of the K1000. And I love the extra-loud, confidence-inspiring click of the shutter, the all-manual controls and the fact that the only reason it has a battery is for the light meter.

    These were processed and scanned (from the negatives) by Cord Camera, a small chain of photography shops. I guess you could call them my LCS (Local Camera Shop).

    I actually got a scanner recently that’s capable of scanning negatives. It was cheap, and I’m sure the scans won’t look as good as these, but it’ll save me money in the long run. If I need a higher-quality scan, I can always have Cord do it.

    Beautiful – love seeing shots where people do things like this. I particularly like the one of Sarah’s necklace and the gravestone shot.
