Two Rolls

I tend to get bogged down with the editing process, so today I scanned in two complete rolls at 2400dpi,very little color correction and no editing. Thought you all might like to see a whole day’s shooting. The results I am getting from ColorPerfect are much better than without. It is really just a starting point, as you will see much variety in the color of the sky. You can also see the dust and scratches that come with scanning negatives. I clean them up normally, but this time they are as-is. The mine tour was shot mostly with the 50mm lens, though I did switch to the 80mm a few times. We were moving so quickly that most everything is handheld and metered for ambient light. I didn’ have time to make exposure notes. So here they are, in order, 24 consecutive shots from the Hasselblad in Pershing county Nevada.

This is at the southern portion looking north. This is nice to show the difference between the lenses. 50mm:

And switching to the 80mm. I moved the camera, but not the tripod:

This spot was very cool; it may be what is referred to as The Spires. I really need to test the 50mm lens because it seems like it always has a soft infinity focus.

So we went to a different locale. This was an old stamp mill. Unfortunately I couldn’t find my light meter, so I guess at all of these exposures and bracketed. Didn’t really seem to matter much.

As much as I love the small aperture shots with the Hassy, I really dig how after I stopped down, the old vehicle in the distance comes out of the composition. The rest are all shot with the 80mm ƒ2.8.

Yes, I thought I left my light meter at this stop so we went back. I grabbed another shot. Things didn’t improve any. We had only back tracked a few miles and luckily, the meter was in the truck the whole time.
