Of course it does! These recent shots were taken on an OM2N with a Vivitar 17mm f3.5 or a humble 50mm f1.8 using Adox Silvermax. More importantly they were accepted by the agency for commercial use (hopefully book covers).
Developed in ID11 stock for 9 minutes at 20 degrees centigrade. Just shot at box speed of 100 ASA and with straightforward development – nothing fancy.
Scanned on a Plustek 7500 then downsized to around 18 MP these were a rather nice set of negs.
To add a bit of drama a light texture layer was added before the final save.
The location was Poole in Dorset on a cool but bright autumn day, just enough cloud in the sky to add some interesting clouds.
The shot above was also vignetted to give it a ‘closed in’ look.
All of the above using the 17mm, the one below using the 50mm lens.
All in all a productive hour or so with lightweight, minimal equipment (no zoom lenses) as is so often the case. I must do this more often, and would humbly suggest you should too!
Thanks for looking, hope you like them.
p.s. There a reviews of lots of other films on the film, camera and lens review index tab.
beautiful collection. working very well together !
Thanks Victor – one of those days when everything ‘just worked’!
i really understand you. i also love these days and as results – some series telling a story like in your sample.
what agency you’re talking about ?
Arcangel Images – http://www.arcangel.com/
I see. I saw the link bur wasn’t sure what it about. Thank you!
Nice 🙂 Some of my Nikon (Digital) batteries cost more than your kit for this shoot! Further proof that it’s the person behind the camera that counts.
Thanks Roger – I’m always shocked by the cost of Canon batteries!
Smashing post Rob! I really must take your advice!
Hi Chillbrook – glad you like them. Deliberately reducing photographic options on a photo trip might sound odd but it works for me (sometimes!).
Very nice to read this.
I have been fiddling with my then new OM-D all through the summer, to find myself loading a roll of b/w-film the other day into a pen-ee and taking 70 odd lovely hipshot pictures at the lokal market while talking to an old teacher.
Just set the aperture and shoot.(light meter won’t work so all you have is a 40/s )
I’ve really beeing enjoying myself. Especially viewing the results. Even my boys kept some of the pictures planning to set up a black and white la on their own….
Keep on posting this nice blog. It’s a pleasure coming back !
Hello Nick, there’s nothing better than shooting and developing a few rolls of film to get some enthusiasm back after a long period on digital.
Only a personal opinion but shooting digital gets pretty dull after a while, but film – for me – always rejuvenates my interest.
Thanks for the comment
Great shots, excellent work!
Absolutely spectacular…superb images…I could live in that last photograph. Smiling cheers,
Thanks Smilingtoad – appreciated
