Here's a contact sheet of my roll:

I did 5 shots that are trichromy
and 2 failed shots (?! not sure how that happened).

And here's one of the trichrome shots (three B&W images with 3 filters to produce 1 colour photograph):

hello, I was invited to this nice group, I'll be participating from Venezuela :)
Rubin Starset PRO 5 years ago
So I just want to get my facts in order here...

* Pick a camera and a roll of fresh film
* Shoot the whole roll on the 24th
* Get the photos developed, scanned, processed, geotagged, metatagged, and uploaded by the 31st
* Post to the group
* Win

Am I correct here? :P
inetjoker PRO 5 years ago
No I think the date to get them posted is longer as some can't get a turn around that fast. I at least think I am not mistaken as some people can have a 24 day turn around or more if they shoot E6 from some places...
Burnt Umber 5 years ago
My E6 lab is only 10 miles away and their turn around can be as long as a week. It makes turn around on E6 and B/W hard for those who have to send it out.

I will be hard pressed to shoot only one roll :)
inetjoker PRO 5 years ago
I am going to cheat. I am going to shoot more than one roll. :-)
EyeCandy Photo PRO 5 years ago
inetjoker is that mean you are going to post a link to all of those rolls you are going to scan? wow.
polarapfel PRO 5 years ago
Hi there,

I think a week to get the film processed and scanned might be a bit short. The place I usually bring my film to takes a week to process.

Any chance we can increase the period of time?


jnicholls357 Posted 5 years ago. Edited by jnicholls357 (admin) 5 years ago
Let's aim for within a week knowing that there will be exceptions and no pressure if you find it tricky. We need a target date to keep momentum and to be consistent with the time sensitive 'philosophy' of the project so lets stick with the 31st as the plan. I'm sure those those posting 'late' will be worth the wait!
Cecilia Temperli PRO 5 years ago
There'll be more than 5000 photos uploaded within that week if everybody shoots 36 frames :-)

Can I add a caveat that you can post your contact sheet or your favourite shot from the roll? Plus of course a link to your set here.

Some of us don't have the equipment to make a contact sheet and rely on our scanners to see the final result!

Blia100 PRO Posted 5 years ago. Edited by Blia100 (member) 5 years ago
@Josh - Contact sheet is easy... Photopaper + negatives in sleeve page + lightsource = contact sheet.. Oh and you can develop paper in D76, XTOL, Rodinal, etc... just doesn't develop as fast as using DekTOL. :D

Just a quick FYI so you know..
EyeCandy Photo PRO 5 years ago

i am sooooo ready for tomorrow...
Cecilia Temperli PRO Posted 5 years ago. Edited by Cecilia Temperli (admin) 5 years ago
Thanks, Blia100. That's what I would have done because half of the time I don't know what I'm doing, especially early in the morning, and thought this method may not be 'good' enough, or looks acceptable enough. Early morning here in Oz and I am staggering around with the camera already... It'll be fun, not even out of the house yet! So, basically, I put the negs in folder on the flatbed scanner and just scan the lot, right?
Josh_Wolf 5 years ago
I think Blia was talking about actually printing a contact sheet, but hey that's a nice easy way for the rest of us to do it! If your scanner doesn't lose focus of course (they're set to focus on a certain depth, although not necessarily the depth your neg holder is at... but that's a whole other story!)

Well I have my first and last shots planned and a theme to tie them all together. Got my variable ND filter ready to shoot my T-Max 400 @ 1600 for plenty of contrast and my D76 mixed up... roll on tomorrow!
Cecilia Temperli PRO Posted 5 years ago. Edited by Cecilia Temperli (admin) 5 years ago
I am using transparency film. With negative film it won't work with a flat bed scanner unless you convert the lot in an imaging program. Our scanner does not scan negs.

I'm gonna have a crack at scanning the negs with a flatbed as a contact sheet, I've done it before with C-41 but just have to try to remember how... Oh, and I'm 14 frames in :)

Here is a sample of an old test strip I just scanned with the flatbed scanner (a very old hp scanjet 5400c), out of the sleeve. Is this acceptable? I am technically CHALLENGED! :-) Edit: I am capable of making it smaller!

scanned with flatbed scanner by Cecilia Temperli

I am not sure whether I will be able to upload today's stuff. The lab I am sending the film to does E6 only on Thursdays, I think, so won't get the strips back before 31 March.

Edit: I've spent a few hours on the road, and I really enjoyed it. Hope I didn't stuff up!

Thank you for suggesting this great project, and getting it going so quickly!

Well my day's off with a whimper. Took a shot of the pancakes I was making for the family with the Star Wars pancake molds--and realized AFTER I pressed the XA2 shutter that I had wrong ISO set! So the BW400CN got exposed as 100, which wouldn't be the end of the world, except for the very long one-second exposure... Ah well, it can only get better from here on, right? :)
R. Lanning 5 years ago
Im in the same boat. Stumbled into the bathroom around 5:30 this morning, took a shot of my shaving stuff, and forgot I had just done a timed shot of my alrm clock. Not a big deal except I had added a flash along with the now 1 second exposure. This early morning photography stuff is hard. All that before I had even had my first cup of coffee.

Well, my roll is sealed and waiting in the fridge. Tomorrow I'm sending it to the lab and I hope it makes it back on time for the 31st :-/
I did a 12-exposure Portra 400 on 6x6 and it turns out, it was not enough! I had to hold my shutter again and again thinking "no, this is not worth your last shot!" :) Next time I'm going with a 24-exposure 35mm film!
It's been fun! :)

had a mini heart attack when i was shooting the fourth frame, the moment i clicked the camera gave an error message saying need to replace battery but then the vewfinder went dark, i feared the worst, thought the shutter has messed up. so rewound the film back into the container, the shutter was fine, it was the mirror that was stuck so some how got it unstuck, phew. So my roll is ready to be developed, with couple of frames overexposed, but it was fun.
Josh_Wolf 5 years ago
My roll is developed and hanging to dry - looks good. Shot T-Max 400 @ 1600. Only problem I can see from the negs is major vignetting with the 21mm, has to be down to the variable ND. That's only about 3 shots out of 37 though so no biggie. Scans in the morning!

That is a so cool flash drive! I'm joining a local camera club and they have a member presentation of photos of the month's meeting theme.

I think that I am the "lone wolf" that is still using film. To hand a film canister that is a flash drive would be great!
Cecilia Temperli PRO Posted 5 years ago. Edited by Cecilia Temperli (admin) 5 years ago
I did a short photo course some time ago and there were only two of us still using film. That other person purchased a digital camera midway through the course, but another one remarked at the end of the course that she was going to try with her old film camera again. What swayed her were the good quality prints (from a pro lab) that I always presented. If you present prints make sure you get them from a pro lab. The difference between our Epson Photo R2400, which is an excellent printer, and prints from the lab is noticeable. Some digital camera users seem to confuse cheap and bad prints with film being bad, although I would hope that in a camera club that wouldn't be the case.
inetjoker PRO 5 years ago
Ralph I have seen them on the internet. But you could make one for nothing if you get a smaller flash drive and have a little skill. I was thinking of making one out of a Plus-X cassette. :-)

RAD20120324 contact sheet

And... Done! My contact sheet is the index print from the lab. I'm tempted to throw my film scanner away - no adjustability whatsoever and the 4 presets are fairly well useless... I apologise for the scratches on the single images, I believe they're from the minilab machine and I've got no idea how to get rid of them (my editing knowledge is limited to using the Levels tool and resizing at the moment), however once I work it out I'll upload the fixed images.

Here is my roll, for RAD20120324, my images may not be that good but i wasnt trying to get "good" images i was trying to show a little bit about my life, where i live what i do etc.

I am 17 and have shot film for about 2 years, on the 24th of March it was a lovely day, after lunch my girlfriend and i went on a walk as we do almost every saturday, aroubd where i live, Hellifield, is a very small village in north west England near the lake district. I felt that my life may be different to everyone else's participating given my age and living in a unique place. anyway i hope you enjoy my images and i look foward to seeing everyone else's :). I apologise for any scratches on the negatives. cheers.

Brandkow93 Nonsense. good images are images which turn out the way you saw them to be. it is about capturing light in a way that reveals your vision of the world to a third party. If you succeed in that, then your work is good. It has little to do with the quality of the image such as contrast, focus, composition, etc..

I think you captured a day in your life rather well. I feel like I was there, and that is good.

Amazing little point and shoot you have there. Yeah, it is a Pentax so you know it will kick butt, but there is a quality to the shots that read like a much larger format camera.
BrandonKowalski 5 years ago
@Burnt Umber. I agree, i think a good image also is one that makes you think or makes you feel an emotion, and i think that digital has change what a "good" image is, how sharp it is etc.

I agree its a great camera in my opinion better than the mju II, and its pretty hard to find, my only problem with it is the flash, it likes to go off even in bright situations.

Kilgore Trout (leicamaster.) [deleted] 5 years ago
@Brandkow you have some lovely shots in the set.

Hopefully my roll will turn out fine... After developing a roll of B&W film from the Hasselblad, I found out my back is having trouble. The spacing on the negatives is off and there might be some light leaks. Meh we shall see. I hope they turn out as I feel I got some nice flower shots!
