Roll #52 – Shanghai GP3 100

_DSC4500
Shanghai GP3 100 (120 Medium Format)

The sprint is over, I finally reached my goal of using 52 different kinds of film. Not in the 52 weeks planned, but shit life happens. Most of it was developed by myself. Except maybe 1-2 rolls, I also scanned everything myself. I think I now – after 2,5 years of doing this – have a better understanding of film photography, developing and scanning.

I want to write a “Lessons learned” article, but this will take a bit of time. Until then you have some new images to look at. The Pentacon framing problems are back, time to get them under control again.

If you have questions, feel free to contact me as well. Either via comment, or coffeepyros@gmail.com – a reply won’t be instantaneous though.

Thanks for sticking around, or just discovering this blog. We’ll see eachother again…

Week #23 – Rossmann HR 400

Rossmann HR 400

Work and other stuff is eating up my week and more often than not I’m out of town for the weekend. So basically there’s no time for all the scanning, removal of dust and scratches, editing and writing needed for a blog entry. Guess I have to save time somewhere in the future… will probably start with dust/scratches.

Or you do it like now – being finished with work shortly after midnight and doing the blog “work” after that. All the films and developing costs add up as well and I’m in slowly growing fear, that by the end of the year it all will amount to a 4 digit figure.

Okay okay, enough with the worrying and more images!
