I'm pretty shure you spelled "sure" wrong.....unless you have a turntable laying around somewhere. If so, please disregard.

Awesome series, Evan. Nice to see film back in full effect. From seeing the scans (what did you scan these with?) they pass muster now. Film has a different look and can work as it is now.

Forgive my lack of film knowledge. How/where do you develop film? I'm shooting some and my labs around Seattle kinda suck. I'm looking for a developer that can correct some of my crappy exposures. I'm shooting all manual with no light meter...sooo

Any ideas?

Thank you all for the comments!

Andy: I use a local pro lab in my area called Chromatics, although sometimes I develop my own B&W film at home, which isn't terribly difficult.

In addition to Grits' pithy advice.... As far as your exposures, if you're shooting B&W, its generally better to err on the side of over-exposure. If you are in a really questionable situation, you MIGHT get some benefit out of finding a skilled darkroom technician who can develop by inspection. This is very hard to do in smaller formats, but still possible with a very skilled tech. With development by inspection, the technician develops the film incrementally, observing the progress of the negative with a faint green light.

Hope this helps.

89.

WOW! You're right about the black-and-white. Amazing!

Did people give you funny looks when you were swapping out the film and not checking the "lack of viewfinder" on the back of the camera?...

it would be cool to create a stickie with 5-10 weddings as examples..... ( maybe a recap the best of year....)
but also use as a tool for noobs and gray refreshers for the rest.

just thinking out loud on Maxwell's happiness....

Found this thread reading this thread http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/926138

Evan's comment on "development by inspection" brought back memories of MANY hours in the darkroom.

My photography "career" began almost 40 years ago with a Canon A-1 and FD lenses. (Those are non-auto-focus lenses for you youngsters) And 80-90% was B&W and all the B&W self developed. Still have the A-1 as well as all the darkroom equipment. Also have my Yashica Twin Lens 2.

Seeing Evan's set makes we want to find a 1v or a 1n so I can use all these L lenses I've been collecting lately.

Thanks Evan for showing how timeless film is. And with all the comments here showing that as far as digital has come, it has not completely replaced film..... yet! And thanks Sam, for your part in enabling Evan's experiment.

Now, back to Sam's post.
