Newport, Oregon - Canon AE-1P - Ilford HP5+

I'm still working on my DSLR scanning. When it works, it's great. However, I'm getting too many missed focus scans with my manual setup. I'm told that autofocus works great, but that's just not an option for me right now. My Fuji X-T4 has a 100% zoom preview option, but that doesn't seem to be enough. My next option will be to use a physical loupe on top of that to see if I can focus in on the grain a little better. 

These shots were on the AE-1 Program using the 28mm f/2.8 lens. I love that focal length, and I'm glad I picked that lens up when I had a chance last year. Here are a few frames from that roll:

And if you're interested, here's the whole album:

  1. I always liked TMAX for the nice sky tones it gave without any filter help. It seems you are getting much the same performance from the HP5.

    1. Just looking back at my notes from that day, I did have a yellow #8 filter on there. HP5+ seems to respond much better to that than a red filter, in my opinion anyway.
