“Just when i thought i was out… they pulled me back in.”
…..aaaaaaand there goes another weekend. I was planning a lot of things in my mind like Mother’s day or spending some good time back with Francesca, which i would really need. But nope, this is how it goes.
The shot above was from a warm and sunny april sunday that was all about photography.
Shoot in the morning – Develop in the afternoon- Print in the evening
(Scan actually, but who’s reading anyway…?)
The Rollei Retro 80s is a very nice film. I read panchromatic around the interwebs but have no idea what that means, don’t hate me. What i can write about it is that it’s different from anything else i shot up to this point. It loves bright sunny days and walks on the beach… jokes aside that’s where it shines. No pun intend.
It’s rich, contrasty and gritty. Not all these images (maybe none) show its true value, but i really appreciated the results.
Also doesn’t really help that these were scanned with the ultra centennial Epson Perfection 1660 and not with the recently acquired V600.
It kind of gives me the impression it was shot on a cloudy day, but it was actually sunny (and hot) as can be.
I would only develop it in non-reusable developer though. When i dumped it, it was completely stained. I would definitely not risk re-using it. So good thing i didn’t use the D76 yet.
I tried playing around with the shadows here. Wasted at least three shots… this one i liked best.
Explored the park, found a coat that time just sitting there. Went back the other day and it’s still in the exact same spot…
These guys……. hangovers…..am i right?
Off to a half real weekend. See you on the other side.
