Euphoria

March 31, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Well my films back.

I sat down with a cup of coffee this afternoon and just stared at the little box on the table for 5 minutes. I cannot remember the last time I wished so hard for something to go right............................

That's it then, can't put it off any longer, gingerly I open the box and pull out the first sheet, Provia 100F. Hold it up to the light.....bang on exposed. Awesome. Then the next sheet and the next sheet and the next............all pretty much spot on....the feeling of euphoria growing. Next the colour neg, Kodak Ektar 100. First sheet......looks good, and the next and the next....shout out a big whoooop! and scare the dog half to death. To say I'm over the moon is an understatement, totally ecstatic. I tried so hard on the Glencoe trip to try an nail my exposures, metering the whole scene, setting the exposure then re- metering the scene again before exposing the film. It paid off. Below is a first home scan of one of the transparencies....

Chamonix 045/F1, Schneider 90mm f/5.6 Super Angulon, 0.25 secs @ f22, Fujifilm Provia 100F, Lee Filters 0.6 soft grad.
