I've seen these here and at RFF, and I really like the set. Do you mind sharing your developing routine for Acros as I have been looking to evaluate it at as my medium speed B&W film and wanted to get a few developing notes from someone who knew what they were doing.


you give me far too much credit. it would be an overstatement to say that I know what I am doing.

however, if you like what I do and wish to emulate it, that I can help you with.

I shoot Acros at 100. Development is 13 minutes in Rodinal 1:50 at 68F, invert continuously for 30 seconds then do 5 seconds of "wine swishing" every minute (second at 1:30, last at 12:30). water stop, fix then wash.

most of what you see in my images is aggressive post processing. I used to just do levels to set a white and black point and while I perceived that as being "nice" it did not look to me much like a print, of which I have made a few. so what I did was take a bunch of photos by my personal favorite Jean-Loup Sieff and spend time analyzing their histograms and saw that they were either flat or looked like the bottom of a flat bowl, and mine looked like a little hill. what you see now is aggressive curves -> levels to push the histogram into that shape and then set the white and black points.

fwiw the following images are all acros in rodinal 1:50, with the same process, but you can see how different they look:

and for comparison in medium format where I got closer to what I do now but using the same processing as the above two shots:

b&w processing is a long journey; just as long as learning composition. I must admit I do chuckle a bit at things like that nik conversion software.

Flickr added some excess noise it would seem. Hmm...

This was Fuji Pro 400h but I didn't care for the colors so I converted it to black and white instead.
Old, old Hassy 500CM with an equally old 80mm T* and a back that likes to skip frames. (In other words: It needs help)

Where did you take this? Also, make sure you are sitting down when you receive your quote to fix the spacing issue...

I already got the quote. It made me choke up a little bit lol. I'm looking at a bit chunk of change to get this whole kit tuned up. Anyways, this was in Laguna at Rockpile. I don't know the woman, she just sat down there while I was shooting the surrounding landscape. Perfect opportunity.

Thank you good sir, I know I want to get this camera restored ASAP, I've got a nice setup with it and it'll be complete when I get a 50mm, but it holds some sentimental value to me as this very camera was used to shoot my parents wedding 36 years ago. The photographer was a family friend and I just inherited the camera about 8 months ago. Makes it kind of special to me. I've got 3 backs for it, 2 lenses and other stuff, but it all needs a tuneup as it sat in a hard-case for 20 years.

Thanks for the tips. Sounds like some Rodinal is in my future as I have also thought of trying it on stand developing too. For scans, I usually set black/white points and then fiddle with the curves and levels for HP5+ and Tri-X scans and I have been pretty pleased with the results, but figured it would be worth asking someone who had some experience with Acros as I don't want to futz around completely blind in my exposure/development regime on any rolls. I'd love to have darkroom access in order to compare scans to some real prints, but that won't be a reality until I move to a new house or larger population center in the state.

Sure . I couldn't quite get the color the way I wanted it, though it's entirely possible that it is my scanner.

They are both equally excellent, tank you for sharing! I do see what you mean by choosing B&W, for this particular situation however!

I like the color shot. It's subtle enough that it almost seems B&W, but with coolness on rocks and warmth in sky, it makes it for me!

GF670, Portra 400. More here. So in love with Portra at the moment, the muted colours and the incredible latitude.. Just a brilliant film.

Used my Kodak Hawkeye 620/120 film camera for these two. Had Fuji Reala 100 film in there intending to use it outdoors, but after plans fell through I ended up putting a portrait lens on the camera and shooting indoors using light from the window. I liked how these two photos came out.

Scanned with an Epson V500 scanner and Vuescan software using the Fuji Reala 100 (JAPAN) film profile for a flat output. Rest of the processing, mainly for levels, done in Lightroom.

Click the photos for a slightly larger view.

Thanks to both of you. I appreciate the feedback. I'm hearing more feedback from both sides and it seems evenly split.
