Film Negative that looks positive

Turning a film negative into a film positive by creating a new film negative.
Neg Pro
I have this Nikon lens adapter for film negatives. Its made to quickly digitize film negatives with a digital camera. The idea is you take a digital photo of a film negative then invert it on your computer. It’s faster and smaller then a scanner. With the added benefit of future upgrades to your digital camera. DSLR scanning as some call it. 

SO just for fun I wondered what if I attached this to my F6 film camera and photographed a negative to create a new negative that looks like a positive.
Instructions on how the adapter works, but instead of a digital camera I used a film camera.

Inverted turns the original negative into a positive, as usual.
New negative made with the adapter turns the positive looking negative into a negative looking positive.

Its a real unique thing to look at a film negative and see a positive image, and not used a computer to do it.
Film is fun!
This is a negative?

When to use Color or Black and White film

Posted by Humby | Views: 597
BlackWhite film
I get better, timeless photographs with
I tend to be more picky when I photograph black & white film. The lack of color or knowing that this photo that I’m about to take has no color makes me think more. I noticed my black and white photos are better photos. Obviously the lack of color focuses my attention on the composition. Thats why I take better b/w photos.
I have more film photography fun with
Color film
Shooting color film is easy for me because its so much fun. It’s easy for other people to enjoy too. If the composition isn’t perfect it still looks good because it’s shot on film. Also developing color C-41 film adds to the fun. The color negative sparks my curiosity and playing the colors on the scans is fun too.

Fresh brisket on the board!

Buc-ee’s is incredible. It’s huge, I don’t mean huge I mean ginormous. When you drive in, this gas station there’s, I don’t know over 100 gas pumps! Inside it’s like a Walmart sized convenience store it’s huge. In the middle they have people preparing brisket and you can watch them chop it. They yell ‘Fresh brisket on the board!’ when its ready.

And the best part, the restrooms are clean!

God Bless Texas and Florida.

My no tripod low light film technique

My low light technique
Shot on Kodak Ultramax 400 handheld
When I’ve had a low light situation, if there’s some bright light in the scene, I’ve been able to get a workable image.
My technique is simple,
& simple things are hard
First, I stay calm and focused. I set my shutter speed very slow maybe 1/8th or 1/4th of a second. I hold my camera and arms hard against my face and body. Looking through the viewfinder and press the shutter button down slowly. I hold my pose until I hear the shutter close being sure not to anticipate it (key point being patient and not anticipating that the photo is done when I press the shutter).

This technique or shooting style almost always works. Even if I get a slight motion blur the photo still looks cool. Obviously, practice is the reason this works for me.

I self develop my film like normal and scan.
