35 mm film processing

Ok, so I've been shooting with 35 mm cameras on and off since 1982 (in HS) and as a wedding photographer and also as tech at a one hour photo lab. Recently, I picked up my camera again after a long period of having laid it down. Here's my question where can I send my film to be processed and get back RAW scans of DNG format scans of my...

Film metadata

I need ideas on how to keep my handwritten metadata connected to a role of film when I send it to a lab to be processed. I hope to do this without using a frame.

Any ideas for the new guy?

New here! Question on shadow showing up in photos. Nikon FM2

Hi fellas, I've been getting back into film the past few months. Shot about 20 rolls so far.

Weird issue with my Nikon FM2. As seen in the photos, I have a weird semi circle shadow in the middle of the frame. It really onky shows up when I have alot of light in the shot, so i must be either stopped down or at a high shutter speed....

Jousting on 35mm Film

I took this shot at a local festival a few weeks ago with a Pentax K1000 and 50mm lens then developed the film and printed at my university. I would love to get some feedback on the shot and see what the community thinks could be done to make it better!

Taking the Plunge

I'm about to start developing my own negatives and am picking up a scanner instead of shipping my film out to be developed. Any words of advice any of you would like to offer? Things to avoid? Anything I need to keep in mind? Going with Kodak D-76 for black and white and Unicolor C-41 for color. I mostly shoot Kodak Tri-X400 and Fuji 400 for...

In cassette monobath processing (no darkroom).

I took portraits using x-ray film (Agfa Scopix IC1B cineradiography 35mm) and developed it IN-THE-FILM-CASSETTE, no darkroom, in a homebrew monobath I made for the purpose. The film leader was taped to the outside of the cassette, and swizzled in the cassette with a pen for about 12 minutes. I then pulled out the negative and presto, these...

First rolls of 35mm

After entering the film world late last year with a Rolleiflex, I just picked up my first 35mm camera, a Leica M2 that I found in near mint condition. First thing I discovered is just how much smaller 35mm is from medium format. I knew it was smaller of course, but damn Gina. This brings up my main question to those of you shooting the smaller...

What's Your DREAM Film Camera for Every Format? (Don't miss this)

Okay, guys. I have a question for you (if you're smart, you already know what it is)...

Each of us has all sorts of ideas. But sometimes, it's just hard to do something because we get our minds set on something big that requires a bit more gear than we can handle. Other times, the creativity runs dry. But if you've ever been there, for...

Critique my film

I'm relatively new to film photography. When I was home I took some time with a FM2 that my mother gave me and walked around Washington, DC taking photos. I'm hoping to post some of my favorites and get some constructive criticism on my shots. Everything was shot on either ISO 200 or 400 Fujicolor film with a 28-70 f/4.

Mamiyaflex C2 Value?

Hey guys!

I was wondering if anyone knew the roundabout value of my Mamiyaflex C2 camera - picked it up over the summer but found myself wanting an SLR rather than TLR.

Why shoot B&W film? No, seriously...

Disclosure: I'm totally new to shooting film. I just bought my first film camera 3 weeks ago (Rolleiflex 2.8), developed my first 5 rolls of film this week (trying different brands/speeds etc.), and scanned some into the computer with my new Epson v800 just last night. First off; loving the whole process and the Rollei. Even the painful lessons...

Black and White Infrared Photos

Just finished shooting a bunch of side by side slides of Kodak TXP 320 against Rollei 400 IR for a film review. Putting my results together for an upcoming article on Fstoppers, but wanted to poll the group:
What are your thoughts on IR film? Have you shot with it before?
Successes and failures? I know I titled this post "black and...

Medium Format Advice

Hey guys! I was wondering if anyone could lead me in the right direction. I am trying to find a medium format film camera that works for me but I don't have a lot of money to spend right now either. Are there any cameras you would recommend me checking out?
