First Roll: Film Photography Project's Wolfman 35

Posted by Humby | Views: 333
 Film Photography Project's
WOLFMAN
Being that the Film Photography Project is based in New Jersey, I decided to use a somewhat New Jersey style theme with my shots. I’m originally from New Jersey. I was born there, twice. Once by my wonderful mother and born again by the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

I shot these photos with my Nikon F80s and my manual focus lens the Voigtlander 40mm f/2.

Since the film isn't DX-coded I got an error when loading my camera. Thinking the roll didn't picked up properly I open the film door. When I saw that the film loaded fine I was ‘awe I just flashed the film’ and lost a frame. I closed the film door and realized the camera was showing an error because it could not find a DX-code. Duh, amateur hour on my part. I manually set the ISO to 100 and was ready to roll.
I had alot of fun shooting this. This roll was a gift from my brother. I guess you could call this a review but I'll call it a first roll sample review.
And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men. - Mark 1:17

This road is obviously an optical illusion. I’d say it’s not even a good optical illusion. You drive up to the white line, put your car in neutral and your car roll backwards. Besides the excitement and worry of hitting the car behind me, it’s pointless. I saw no illusion.

Treasures upon earth
What do you do when ‘they’ want to build a massive beautiful building next to your mom’s house? 

Imagine your mother in her home, where your late father worked hard his whole life to provide for his family. Image the whole residential neighborhood is now in the hands of a massive developer. Then ‘they' somehow convince everyone to go along and build a massive complex of buildings right next to your mom’s house!

In the end, the man kept his home but lost his mother during the ordeal and the developer built his buildings.
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
- Matthew 6:19-21

$200 scanner vs 18 years old DSLR camera

$200 scanner vs
18 year old DSLR camera
Key takeaways:
1. DSLR scanning is faster if you know how to invert colors, if not stick with Epson and SilverFast.

2. iPhone 13 Pro as a light source is fantastic. It provides a nice consistent white and a great starting point on the color balance. Max out the brightness, turn off 'True Tone' and 'Night shift' in the settings.

3. Nikon ES-2 is fantastic. Almost zero friction to setup and breakdown. Very upgradable, switch out the camera anytime. Very portable too.

4. Affinity Photo is a great Photoshop replacement and it's a one time fee, no subscription!

5. The Epson has more resolution, 3000 x 4250. My old Nikon D70 obviously produced a much smaller image, 2000 x 3000.

6. Which is better? I'll let you decide.
Epson V600
Nikon D70

I have an Epson V600 scanner. It gets the job done but I regularly get weird lines, rings and other problems. I do remove dust if it's on a face or something important. Overall thou, tend to leave these flaws because it gives character.  It's not perfect. 

 I scan using SliverFast 8. SilverFast’s interface is interesting and quirky. It looks to be from the Apple Aqua UI era. I think it was written by a guy in Germany (He flew a Piper airplane around the world). It has every feature you would ever need and should probably never change. 

Unfortunately, scanners are slow. Que the DSLR...
I also own a DSLR from 2004, the Nikon D70. It's 6 megapixels but was, in many ways still is a great camera. I used my iPhone 13 Pro as a light source with the Nikon ES-2 setup. I inverted the colors in Affinity Photo. Cmd-I to invert then used the levels tool to adjusted the RGB channels.
