These look classic America to me, the colours and compositions are classicI finally received my slides and negatives back from the lab today. I was able to find my slide holders for my scanner but could not locate my 120 folders. So I had to order a new holder which will take about a week to get. I scanned my slides and picked out my 10 favorite images. All shot on my Nikon N80 using my Tamron 15-30mm and Nikon 85mm lens
1. Old brick building in the of stockyards in St. Joseph, MO
2. Union Pacific swing bridge across the Missouri River in St. Joseph, MO
3. Burling Northern railroad bridge near Farley, MO
4. 45 Spur highway bridge crossing the Missouri river at Leavenworth, KS
5. Bride crossing the Kansas River near West Bottoms in Kansas City, KS
6. Pasture and Fence Post, North of Troy, KS
7. Old barn located North of Troy, KS
8. Farm road North of Troy, KS
9. Abandoned grain tower near Farley, KS
10. Tobacco barn outside of Weston, MO
These do look cooler than the previous ones, but that works very well - especially #2.My 120 negative carried finally arrived today and I was excited to get my 120 negatives scanned. I was given two pro packs of Kodak Porta 220 film last summer but did not have a 220 back. I purchased one a couple of months ago and took my Bronica out with my N80 last month for testing. The film was expired (I think in 2002) and wanted to see the results before I took any long day trips with it.
I also purchased a 250mm and this pretty much completes my kit. Here is the 35mm equivalent of the lens I'm shooting with:
50mm = 25mm (my wide angle lens)
110mm = 52mm (my macro lens)
250mm -= 125mm (my telephoto lens)
I might try a tele-convertor if the 250mm won't give me the reach I need
Some of these are of the same subject as above. The 35mm Ektachrome seems to produce a richer color while the Porta seems to have more of a cooler feel.
1. Fence Post with 50mm
2. Tobacco barn in Weston, MO with 50mm
3. Union Pacific train going thru the West Bottom in Kansas City, MO. Used the 110mm
4. Another Union Pacific train passing by the grain towers in Hiawatha, KS. 50mm
That's it from the 220 roll. The rest are mostly duplicate subjects from the Nikon. I have a couple of more frames to shoot from my roll of 120 TriX black and white film and will post those when I get them back.
The backing paper artefacts add to these I think. Your pictures are really tempting me to get hold of some 35mm film...I sent a couple of black & white rolls to my lab last week and they arrived today.
I like the output of the NIK filters and tried to match up the filter to the photo and the contents
I've been having an issue with the Kodak name and frame number showing up on the negative from the backing paper.
After doing research on Google, I discovered the was an issue with the backing paper. Of course the two pro packs I have are part of that batch.
Some of the images show the issue.
