the tricks of the pros

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.

 

I must say that I’m not a huge fan of this Kodak Farbwelt 400 stuff. The shadows tend to get very blue/magenta when running it through the Pakon and I don’t feel like colour correcting every single shot. Maybe this batch wasn’t stored correctly or went through an x-ray one too many times. I got it at a quite cheap price here in Spain and it used to be sold on the German market a while back. I still have some 10 rolls of this stuff left, but I probably won’t be buying it again. It does alright in bright sunshine, but then it actually makes a little more sense to shoot Kodak Gold 200, which I like more anyway. I will have to try some Kodak Ultramax 400, which is supposedly the same film stock – and see whether just this particular batch has issues. Normally it should be one of the films the Pakon handles particularly well.

By the way, there is a first for everything: Today one of the bulk-loaded HP5+ rolls tore when loading and I didn’t notice, although I always check film transport normally. I shot an unusually long ghost roll into oblivion. Oh well. Luckily I also had my Rollei with some Rollei CR200 and the walk wasn’t a complete waste.

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

I wonder how long it took the kid to learn how to spin it on his hand!
