I have had one issue with film I have shot in the used Nikon F80 camera that I purchased. On a roll of Kodak Portra 400 at a family gathering half of the shots are either half or 3/4 black. There would be good shots before, between and after these shots.
The negative looks blank. A possible shutter issue? But, I am not sure. I have since shot a roll of black and white film that I will pick up on Friday to see if I have the same issue. If so guess I will have to figure out what is causing the problem.
Now to the images I shot on my second roll of film. These are from scanned negatives and have pointed out in two of them an issue that I cannot figure out what happened. Scanned on Epson V500 using Epson scanning software with Digital Ice selected.
All of these were taken at Chiswick House. Shot using 50mm lens. Film was Fujifilm Superia X-TRA 400.
The image on the right had something on the negative. I removed a bit of it from the sky but left it on the pillar. Not on the print I received.
Green line appeared on the scanned negative. Not on the print that I received.
A walk along the River Thames where you can always find something interesting. Took along both my DSLR and the Nikon F80 for testing, film will be picked up tomorrow, hoping for something good from that roll of film. BUT more than likely nothing good.
Even the birds have found a way to beat the heat we have been experiencing this week.
Deep in the wilds of any city, rather it be city streets or parks or in a tree, you will find these creatures. A nuisance mostly but rather photogenic.
It is that time of year once again where I reflect back on the previous year and sort through my Lightroom library and clear out images that I never got around to deleting and/or processing. It also gives me a chance to revisit older shots and make the decision rather or not it is a keeper. If I decide it is a keeper I then process the image.
There is no better way of sharing these images that have lingered on the hard drive for many months than to publish them here to my blog. This is the first post of my yearly round up.
You can just see the little goslings gathered under Mama. Mallard Duck surrounded by blossom petals.
A Hare. I do believe I have identified this correctly.
Just a bird and a heron.
Pretty as a Peacock.. which it is.
Squirrel. I can never get enough of shooting squirrels.
Gorgeous little robin which posed for me.
I will be back again later this week with more of my 2015 round up, after I get the work thing done.
Whenever I am out and about with my camera and come across squirrels I am always entertained by their antics. I find them to be curious but timid. They like to come up close to see if I have any food to share and, I like to believe, try to figure out what exactly I am doing.
This series of photos were taken on different days and different places.
They do like to pose for me, I think they would work for peanuts.
They do try to hide and pretend I can’t see them.
And sometimes they just have to stop and scratch that itch.
