From the first roll I developed, incorrectly I might add. Not to good. But still…
Canonet QLIII 19, FP4+, Diafine 3+3, 35mm, film,
This was a pretty underexposed negative that Diafine rescued for me. I still had to do a fair amount of adjustments in photoshop but I managed to get a decent exposure out of it with out exciting too much of the grain. All hail Diafine! Starting to love the stuff.
Trying something new. I souped this at 4.5 in A and 4.5 in B to see if I would get better results. Have to look into it a little more.
Also shot this at an EI of 1000 . I have read that this makes for more predictable results with this film and Diafine. We will see…
Wow! This lens has really smooth bokeh! Its a Nikkor 50mm 1.8 (not the Series E). Kinda lucked out and got a better lens than usually comes with this camera.
Not too sure I’m sold on these processing times of 4.5+4.5 in Diafine? It could be the exposure of the camera but I think my highlights are a little blown. Its not too bad but I would like to have a full tonal range in the image. I believe I will go back to 3+3. Oh and did I mention I love this camera. You should go out and get one as well.
I think the cannister I used to load this film had a little bit of a light leak in it? You’ll notice along the bottom of the frame that you can see 6 bright areas just under would be the sprocket holes of the film. It was only along the bottom edge of the frame and It is on the majority of the shots but not all. I don’t think it is the camera but I could be wrong. Maybe I will load a small roll and test it out. I have many cannisters so if it is just that one I will chuck it and hope I wont run into that problem again.
Shot at EI1250, developed with Diafine at 4.5+4 as per Tim Layton’s recommended Diafine instructions.
I know I have posted an image almost identical to this but oh well.
Same roll as the one with the light leaks only this time no leaks.
I love how light falls off with grain on film. Check out the shadows on this plant and see what I mean. Loving this camera and lens.
