Lighthouse in Fog

As I mentioned in my last post, I came up with a better method for coping my film negatives with a DSLR… and I have to say, it’s working out pretty well. It allows me to copy several negatives an in reasonable amount of time. As long a I’m meticulous about cleaning the negative prior to copying, everything ends up looking fairly nice with minimal post work.

The lighthouse image was captured several years ago. It’s a place I’ve visited many times. Knowing that even if the weather man calls for fog, it can be hit or miss along the lake. I got pretty lucky the day I shot this, and was able to get at least one decent image before the fog rolled out.

Better Negative Copies

I recently purchased a new (inexpensive) LED light table, for coping my film negatives with a DSLR. Although it might not be the perfect solution, the results seem to be substantially better than what I had been getting… and they’re more than adequate for my current need. I might even be comfortable making medium sized prints from these.

Trees & Fog

I decided to go with some trees and fog for my post today… on this cold rainy Wednesday. Although my true passion is photographing things with an industrial theme, I do enjoy getting out into nature now and again.

The image was captured with a TOYO 45A view camera, and shot on Kodak 100 TMAX B&W film. Film was processed in Kodak D76.
