Shepard mix LGP 12-21-16 1

Shepard mix LGP 12-21-16 1

A German Shepard mix, or a purebred G.S. (I don’t remember purebreds having this kind of long fur, though…) comes through Looking Glass Photography. (a camera store in Berkeley, CA…) I apparently had the lens on an outdoor ƒ stop (probably ƒ 8…) and the shutter speed for that stop was apparently 1/8 to 1/15 of a second (camera was in Aperture-Priority AE…) – the camera stayed still, but the dog looked around when he/she (the photographer didn’t look…) heard the first curtain fire, and the mirror flap… (since the mirror wasn’t locked up…) Taken by a Nikon F3 with a Nikkor 50mm ƒ 1.4 AIs lens on Kodak Portra 400 film.

Scanned into computer by an Epson V700, with the Epson software.

Yes, that’s dust by the dog’s hind leg…

Hyatt House E bedroom 1 7-14 2

Hyatt House E bedroom 1 7-14 2

The room for my overnight stay at the Hyatt House, Emeryville, CA, while awaiting a train trip the next morning. (getting to the station on time for my train, at this time, (0720) is problematic in the AM from Albany, where I live…) Taken from the corner opposite the bathroom door by a Nikon F3 with a Nikkor 24mm ƒ 2.0 AIs lens on Kodak U-Max 400 film. Exposure is in the 1/15 sec @ ƒ 3.5 range…

Scanned into computer by an Epson V700, with the Epson software. As always with scanned film, work was done in Paint Shop Pro x8 to clean up dust/dirt, and, in this case, to make the color rendition closer to "normal".

Taken by the shortest lens I had with me on the trip… (my 20mm and 15mm stayed home…) Trip (to Tijuana…) will continue through this roll of 36! (this is only shot # 8…)

The camera bag for my non-AF Nikon cameras and lenses is seen below the microwave.

The Hyatt House also has suites, and I stayed in one on my return from Tijuana. (the train got in after 2300!)

The bathroom of my room for my overnight stay at the Hyatt House, Emeryville, CA, while awaiting a train trip the next morning.

Exposure is in the 1/15 sec @ ƒ 5.6 range…

35mm Film – Roll 1.

35mm Film - Roll 1.

| Website | Tumblr | Facebook | MySpace | Twitter | Formspring | Personal Tumblr |

Currently in the process of scanning every single negative strip that I’ve shot thus far.
Looking through the negatives on the computer, I’m seeing so many pictures I never saw or noticed before.
They’ll be uploaded in order of when they were shot, starting with the second roll of film I ever shot (the first roll was destroyed because I didn’t wind it properly &then was exposed to light).
I have around 30 rolls of film I’ll be scanning over the next however many days/weeks.

Scanned from the negative &slightly tweaked in Photoshop. A separate print was made in the darkroom for class.
Excuse my poor scanning skills.
Water spots &dust everywhere, I know.

qLogic chip on drive

qLogic chip on drive

A qLogic chip on a Fujitsu 73 Gb SCSI hard drive. Taken in Albany, CA by a Nikkormat FT2 with a Micro-Nikkor 55mm ƒ3.5 lens on Kodak Portra 400NC. Negative scanned into computer by an HP G4010. Dust removal, color and gamma correction done in Paint Shop Pro Photo X2.

this is 1:2 (or half life size…) on the film plane.

What the chip does, I have no idea, as I can’t find any reference to it on Qlogic’s site

Hidden treasure!
I never printed this, never even considered this shot. It’s my favorite from that first developed roll, though, &I’m so glad I was able to save it. I can’t wait to find more that I never saw!

...

The keyboard cliché! (:

This is me, testing my grandma’s new camera. She had to buy a new one because I refused to use the Kodak Z1285 when we went places (or she brought the Canon along and I abandoned it), and also theres always something wrong with that darn thing. She thought I took way too many photos on her Canon PowerShot SD800.

The camera works fine, but I can’t get the software to work (they tell you to download it online, which is really stupid) on this computer so I have to put the photos on the computer manually.

It took soooooo long to edit out all the dust (:

I keep on rotating this photo (:
