I would like to start off by thanking all of you who came out to the bridal fair yesterday in Cromwell. It was great to see some familiar faces and see some new ones as well. It's always a daunting task to plan a wedding and to go around to all the bridal fairs. It's just one more reason to pick the right photographer. After all we are the ones who will give you everlasting memories of all that you planned.
Anyway, I did have some great conversations with a lot of you. In fact a few were about film, B&W film and B&W in general. It got me thinking about all the B&W I've shot and of course all the B&W negatives too. So I pulled out a few negatives and begun scanning. It takes a bit of time with the scanner (about 15 minutes for a 6cm X 7cm negative) so bare with me. I hope to share a few of them over the next few months, or years.
This first one is not even done but I wanted to start sharing. It was shoot on a Mamyia RB-67 with a 127mm Lens and then scanned at 6400dpi giving me a whooping 2.11 Gigabit file. To give you an idea of what that means, it will print as big as 50x60 with out braking a sweat. The one below has been shrunk a bit for the Blog. More importantly, this was while on a trip out west in 1999. If memory serves me right it was in South Dakota (Big Sky Country).
Please check back from time to time and see what's up.
