    black and white is color, can someone tell me what is going on ?

    hi there ...

    last night i processed some film
    tri x , plus x and foma 100 and a hand full of 4x5 ...

    everything looked ok when i processed it
    and i used my usual developer
    eyeballed-coffee+soda+vitimin c + a healthy dump of
    straight ansco 130 ...

    i was very surprised when i scannned proofed plus x film.
    i always scan in color and i invert / adjust the levels
    a tiny bit. something didn't look right, so i just auto leveled
    (something i never do ) to see what the machine guessed i wanted.

    and to my surprise they came out in color.

    does anyone know what happened to my film ?
    i have to look at some of the other strips
    i was eager to see what my tri color experiments looked like
    so i grabbed 1 strip ... now i have to look at the rest! because
    the frames i DID NOT use filters on look like i shot them with
    expired provia

    the sandles in the gallery was the first one i noticed was in color.
    the one i have attached is green leaves and trees behind our house.

    thanks!

    You obviously didn't get a color image from the film. What other conclusion can be made other than the scanner is introducing unwanted artifacts?

    John,
    How do the negatives look?

    From what I understand caffenol/folgernol negatives are stained brown-ish - my guess is your software saw brown (as opposed to greyscale) and assumed it was in colour and tried to compensate accordingly.

    I have had similar issues occasionally with files scanned from green-tinted XP2 or Chinese B&W C-41 film - the software assumes it is in colour because it's green, and sometimes odd tints/compensation can result until a B&W/greyscale conversion happens.
    i can't wait to take a picture of my thumb with this beautiful camera.

    Now that's the best answer! There is nothing quite like the feeling one gets with a well done wet print.

    Maybe you got an accidental duotone, the equivalent of split-toning on a negative? It looks like your highlights and your shadows are not of the same colors, like a split-toned print.
    Using film since before it was hip.
