A Portrait in UltraMax 400

This is the other half, taken with UltraMax 400 and the Nikon F3HP and scanned on the Pakon 135. A bit of retouch in LR, but overall, there is little difference. The skin tones were important, because he has a rather ruddy complexion (not as bad as mine), and sometimes toning it down removes a lot of other qualities in an image. Above is the “retouched” and below is the untouched.



I’ve a small collection of older cameras.  This is a portrait of one of my favorite people, taken with a Voigtlander RF, a folder from the 1930s.  It has a Heliar uncoated lens, 105mm, which is appropriate for the 6×9 camera size.  The film is Portra 400, 120.

I have done some post processing here, cleaning up a streak running through the film, as well as erasing bits and pieces of odd detritus.  I also pushed the color a bit, as the original image was rather pale – perhaps a bit overexposed.
