When tidying up in my study last night, I found three 5×4″ negatives on my desk under a pile of papers. There were from August and September last year, made with my Ilford Obscura pinhole camera. I had no memory of them whatsoever. Here are two of the three, quickly scanned last night.
The first is from the Küchensee, one of several lakes around the small town of Ratzeburg in northern Germany.
The second one was made on a local hill where I had been photographing wind turbines.
These were both made on Fuji Pro 160NS film – the first colour negative film that I’ve found to be one I can practically use for my semi-digital workflow (i.e. that includes scanning and digital manipulation). Not only does it have phenomenal detail and no notable grain it is far easier to scan and colour correct than the far more well-known Kodak Portra, which I’ve never really liked.
In tidying a little more this morning, I’ve also found some Provia that I’d forgotten about…!
