I love Jake's writing (especially when it's in delicious audio form) and I'm looking forward to seeing what creeps out of his twisted mind next.

Just as I was packing away a cruddy Fujica AX mount 50mm 1.8 I found this, I think it was fate.

When I can afford the spare cash, I've gotta try this!  I'd be too worried that I'd break the lens and the camera in the process though.

Ahh, pictures of plants and flowers, or regression to the mean as I like to think of it.

After the lengthy discussion on my cross-processed and scanned pictures, I finally decided to upload the original lab scans to flickr, because who doesn't love orange?

+Graeme Jago : Haven't been on here since our last lengthy conversation, but am glad to see you uploaded the rest of your shots. As far as the x-processing goes keep experimenting with different films...as they will all have their own inherent differences. I like using Fuji Provias, and if you can still find it Kodak e100G. Good luck man!

As you said for your shots, if it wasn't for the scanner and lightroom these would be unusable, I'm hoping to get a slightly less vintage feel to my next roll, not shooting half frame would be a good first step :-)

BREAKING: HUGE meteor over Russia

A tremendous meteor burned up over Russia around 09:30 local time. It was as bright as the Sun and the sonic boom shattered windows. There are reports of injuries from shattered glass, and preliminary reports (unconfirmed) of pieces hitting the ground. Here's what I have so far:

Note: This is almost certainly unrelated to #2012DA14 . I explain in the post.

Is that the one that supposed to miss us by 15 minutes?

Camera Gear  - 
 
My one purchasing aim for this year is to get a decent quality medium format camera, something like a Bronica or a Mamiya. 

So far I have bought another Bencini Koroll half frame camera (yes, another one, so technically I have one full frame Bencini now) and today I sort of accidentally bid on a Lubitel 2 and won it.

As you can see, I am zero steps closer to getting a decent medium format camera, so can any of you guys give me any tips on getting the best out of the Lubitel when it gets here? Also, please could someone come round my house and delete my ebay account?

Thanks :-)

+Graeme Jago they are very cool looking cameras, and while it may not be the most important thing in a camera, girls absolutely love them! Especially that wonderful shutter sound. 
Absolute bugger on a cold day though...

I've never either shot slide film, or had it cross processed before this week, so when I got my processed negs, prints and scans back from lab I just assumed that was how they were supposed to look, you know, like redscale...

Anyway, image on the left is the scan I got from the lab CD  (that my prints were done from) image on the right is from my own scan, with temp correction in Lightroom.

Now I'm no expert, but I feel like perhaps the lab done goofed.

I totally agree +Graeme Jago, I've had FAR more engaging photography discussions here than nearly anywhere else. People here are amazing at sharing their ideas without becoming confrontational, and are generally interested in what others are doing as well!

Apologies in advance to anyone annoyed by this, as I'm sure some will be :-)

Beginner questions  - 
 
Hey guys, a real vague question here, with a fairly dumb set of variables, but I'm sure that you can help. 

I today shot my first roll of film taken from a bulk roll of out of date HP5...not HP5+, which probably makes this a VERY out of date roll of film. I shot it in a previously untested Olympus Pen EE, in the snow, and developed it in the completely unsuitable (but all that I have in the cupboard) FX-39. Never before has the phrase "recipe for disaster" been so accurate. 

The results are, to use a technical term, crappy. Dark and tonally compressed. I'm pretty sure that the camera under-exposed because of the snow, but even so I'm sure I need to improve the processing. Does anyone have any experience with HP5, advice on shooting and developing it? Also, given the age of the film, should I be developing for longer? 

I'll run a few frames through a camera that I can trust next to take that variable out of the equation. At least with bulk film I can make 10 frame rolls so It won't take weeks to experiment :-)

I've got to develop another roll of this stuff soon, I can't remember if I used the ilford stop last time or not, but I'll definitely use water now, thanks for the tip!
