I finally got the first few rolls back from the medium format Pentax 645. It’s a beast and I love it! Manual focus is so hard but kind of a fun challenge. And I think I’m overexposing too much.
I tried to use this last “wait” for the scans to intentionally focus on other things. I was semi-successful. I still feel very drawn to film and the workflow potential it offers.
Here are a few shots from the first couple of rolls. They were Portra 400 developed and scanned by Indie Film Labs. I’m working on some Ektar 100 and it’s so fun to be chasing sunlight instead of running from it! I’m including some out of focus images in the interest of full disclosure and for documentation’s sake. You know, for when I’m nailing focus every time in a few months. Yeah right.
