After my fourth roll I think I hit my stride!! Thankfully the weather has been the same for all four rolls thus far (gray, cloudy and rainy). This last roll I shot at 25 with a yellow filter (K2). I developed in Xtol (not replenished) 1:1 for 14 minutes. This film when hit right is beautiful. I was sure jazzed to hit a few.
Camera – Yashica Linx f1.4:
Scans (auto no adjustments on my end):
A: 1/125 f1.4
B: 1/250 f1.4
Check out how sensitive this film is only one stop difference between C and D?! Wow, night and day.
C: 1/250 f2
D: 1/25 f1.4
I think this film works exceptionally on overcast days! Like all ortho not the best on skin tones (it’s a bit harsh, I saw a neg of a shot of my wife and it does not do justice to her skin color – more pink/red looks dark and harsh, it would work great for the Marlboro Man through)…
I think like others have shown, a filter is probably needed (I am enjoying my yellow K2).
I am now dreading shooting in sun, a whole other set of rules.
Look forward to more images from others!
