I think I finally figured out how to do a “decent” instax . . . no flash, darken picture, and hold very, very still. Finally, something a bit sharper than I have been producing.
Scanned on CanoScan Lide 600 with Vuescan.
Another image taken with the Ricoh XR-10 and Vivitar 28-70mm lens, using Kodak UltraMax 400 shot at iso 400. The original was rather pale, so with the help of LR6 and On1, the colors were changed to my liking, and the image cropped.
A new-to-me film, recommended by one whose photography I admire: Kodak UltraMax 400. Not an expensive film. I shot the roll at the recommended iso, using the automatic exposure element in a Ricoh XR-10 camera, and a Vivitar 28-70mm lens. The guy at the photo lab suggest I shoot all 400 at 320 iso instead – longer exposure, better color. I’ve loaded another roll of the same film, in the same camera, to test it out at a lower iso.
This image was doctored a bit in LR.
Corner of a room we stayed in during our recent trip to Morro Bay. This was shot with Rollei Crossbird Creative Edition film, and was way too green. This is ok.
I bought a Fuji Film 90 Mini Neo Classic instant camera for a July 4th birthday. No firework pictures, just pictures of the birthday party attendees. It was a success, and lots of fun.
So now I have to drag out the old scanner to put them up on line! In the process, I’ve had to look at how filthy my scanner is, at the dust and hair probably embedded inside the scanner, and then clean things up. By hand it is awful, but the >filter>noise>dust in PS6 works very well!
More results will come . . .
