A short trip to the local TJs, in need of salsa, and of course other things jump into the cart, like beer and cookies and beer and beer.
Over a year ago I won a couple of rolls of Dubble film, and it was shipped all the way from Spain. I finally got around to using it. This is a desaturated image – since this is a black and white year – but the color one is pretty cool, too. A lot of oddly colored films don’t appeal to me, but I really liked the results I got from it. When I post a desaturated image from that lot, I’ll include the original, too. I clean things up in LR and such, getting rid of the specks and threads of processing, but for the color ones, that is all I will do.
This is the first phase of a computerized brew rig, built by Mr. Drew himself. Posted today as it makes its maiden voyage.
Taken with the Canonet GIII QL rangefinder with Kodak Portra 400. Developed by a local lab (which is friendly and does nice work) as well as scanned, this is my own scan from the Pakon F135 scanner. I also did some post in LR and DxO to reduce the noise. Because of the detail, I probably used f5.6 or so, and not enough time – the original was darkish – so the film was quite grainy.
This brings up the question – why do film when you are going to manipulate it in the computer anyway?
