creepy christmas

As always, if you have questions, objections, worries or praise, and especially if you found your picture and want it removed, feel free to contact me. I will get back to you as soon as possible. You can also read my full disclaimer, if you are interested.

 

Today was the first time that I attempted to develop a couple of 35mm rolls and then feed them to my Pakon as soon as they were dry. It worked fantastically and after scanning I hung the rolls back up to make cutting them easier. I can see already how this will be a very unproblematic and straight forward workflow. If it wasn’t for the development and the dust-spotting the whole process would be almost as easy as a digital workflow, just without all the discards. I’m definitely on the right track now and can concentrate more on the things I actually enjoy: Shooting and developing, rather than spending ages in front of the computer.

Some rolls do need more of an intervention though, even scanned with the Pakon. The Pakon software doesn’t have a Cinestill preset and therefore results with the Pakon colour correction algorithm don’t really add up. I saved these as raw scans and then corrected them with ColorPerfect and a curves layer. With the Epson I would have had to do this as well on top of spending an hour scanning them. I prefer scanning just a few minutes. And obviously, with standard consumer films I don’t need to do any additional colour correction at all.

All pictures taken with: Leica M6 + Zeiss ZM C-Biogon 35mm f/2.8.

I posted a black and white picture of this one already, but in colour it’s completely different.

Those crepes would kill me, but they were sure doing photogenic work!

One of them gave me the finger a few seconds later.

Ah, festivals make people lose all sense of embarrassment.
