Hey there FM members, first time posting a thread to share an image, but did a recent shoot and thought I would show my favorite shot! All natural light, shot with a mamiya rz67/110mm f2.8/fuji pro400h, self developed and scanned with an epson v600.


Elizabeth by Thomas O'Connell, on Flickr

Skin tones have to be the hardest part of scanning color at home, and I've seen a million different ways of doing it, finally settled on this as I felt it was most accurate and neutral. If anyone does a lot of scanning and has anything to chime in on that topic please feel free!

It's a really beautiful portrait and a great use of film as a medium. Scanning color negs is very subjective but you've done a good job here I think. I've drum scanned thousands of color negs over the last decade and there is no right or wrong way to arrive at your final destination. If it were me, I might opt for a tick more saturation in her skintones, making them a bit redder, but only just a bit. Overall, you did a great job!

A very nice image mate.
I would agree with Peter in that I would saturate the reds a little, she's a bit on the green side.
Regards

Nice image. I think it could be better if she were turned into the light (short lit). Got some green contamination in the shadows, consider adjusting that.

For her face, broad light is really great. It would completely change the mood and the mood here is great. While there is some green in the shadows, it actually feels right because the image is shot with a lot of green around it. You could work that out or not. It'd still be a good image.
