    Very nice! I got out there a little later that day and was shooting with my medium format camera. I just remember hanging out after the show talking film with Sean Johnstun afterwards. Somewhere I've got some great shots of everyone's cars on the grass.

    film rocks...digital seems so temporary to me....we should all go back to film and photo albums so that the images from today can be enjoyed for generations... can you imagine if a lost image was on an old floppy disc ??

    What a nice surprise. I thought I was the only one that left film in a drawer for years.
     
  9. Did you actually process the film? Slide?
    If I remember right it was a long and multi chemistry process,,
    Very nice images,, a photographer can capture 'the shot' with any medium from pinhole to mega pixel camera,,,

    I miss film so bad. .20 cents per shot, every one had to count.
    Now everyone is Ansel Adams.
    50 pics of the dog laying on the couch. Jeeeez.
    I was a Photographer in the Navy, much schooling and opportunity to practice.

    C41 developing is miserable. It's not a ton of chemistry, it's just super sensitive to chemical temperature. I still do all of my own Black and White stuff, but I don't do my own color unless it's some bullshit roll like I thought this one was. My odds of screwing up are pretty high.

    I just developed 6 rolls of Tri-X myself and had four rolls of Portra developed at the shop. That's 360 shots... Out of those, maybe 10 or 12 are worth a shit at all. And really, those 10 or 12 are only interesting because they are on film... The novelty makes it fun.

    At the end of the day, I'd go broke fast if I tried to take photographs for a living. I just like doing it though...

    Great photos Ryan, and a timely discussion for me.
    As I have continued to sort through boxes of my Dad's old stuff, I came across some rolls of Ektachrome film that, I suspect, were exposed back in the 60's when my dad used his old rolleiflex camera (also found that and a Durst enlarger) anyone know if film that old could still be developed?

    It's sad to me that people no longer will know the anxiety of waiting to see the results of their labor of taking a good Photograph. I taught Photography for forty years and my students always were so thrilled when they developed and printed their own images. The feeling of self worth and accomplishment was always worth the effort of teaching them to do it. It was investment of yourself in process something that now will no longer exist ... except for a few.

    You can still get Ektachrome developed no sweat... It's kodachrome that you can't get developed anymore... Which is a shame. I have four rolls of Kodachrome taken by a Southern California hot rodder in the 1950's that I am dying to get developed but can't without some risky process of removing a layer of the film. There are rumors that Kodak could bring it back, so I'm holding out.

    Ryan these are killerrrrrrrrrrr! These definitely don't look like they were shot in 2007. Maybe 1947?

    This is portra developed by these guys:

    http://www.richardphotolab.com

    They worked with my on some test rolls and came up with a color profile that I really like. Typically, I shoot Portra 400 and expose for 200 as well as meter on the shadows. This always gives me the colors and contrast that I like. In this case, I shot portra and I probably exposed it at 400... and it sat in a desk for damned near a decade... and they were still able to develop the film to match my more recent stuff... They are really good and really expensive, but you should try them sometime.

  23. Love it! My favorite is the one with the T-6 flying in the background.
     
  24. Not to hijack this thread, those are good shots, but I found this undeveloped roll of film after my Dad passed away in 2008. I think it was from 1937, I developed these in 2010, 73 years in the can. He was an avid photographer. The problem was the negatives would not lay flat, they had a permanent curl to them....Here are a few: p1.jpg p2.jpg p3.jpg

    Oh wow I would've never guessed it was portra. I always get yellow tones out of portra 400/800. Not really 160. I honestly didn't even know you could alter the process to match a desired color profile, but thats great to know. Maybe ill shoot a few rolls of portra and try them out next shoot. I was figuring this was cinestill.

    Oh. My. God. These are flat out amazing. So, so good...

    I've pretty much settled on Portra 400 as my color film. I love Cinestill, but it's hard to get sometimes...

    In any case (and sorry for taking this off topic guys, but I'm a film geek), here's a photo from a fresh roll of Portra developed with the same color profile:

    009674-R1-033.jpg

    The yellows are popping like mad (as you said), but the blues are still true and the whites are white... I think my process of over exposing the film helps this a lot... Like I said, I exposed at 200 iso (rather than 400) and on this shot, I metered off her shirt.
