cape cod / film no. 2

July 22, 2009







above, some photos i took with the diana+. i forgot how much i enjoy shooting with that camera!

lately, lots of online friends and favorite blogs have been busy. here’s what i’m enjoying:
+ xavier started a new food blog, a kitchen diary. i always enjoy seeing his delicious, french home cooking on flickr, so i’m glad to finally have access to the recipes. (and it’s nice to see another guy blogging about food!)
+ stephanie is in tokyo for a few months, and given my obsession with all things japanese, you better believe that i’m going to spend a lot of time checking out little miss twig.
+ speaking of japan … hiki has a new store, where she’s selling some cool japanese products.
+ rachel’s post “i treasure my days” was refreshing to read this morning.
+ i love these 4 images together at nikole’s blog
+ jen’s farm photos are excellent.

have a good evening!

    wonderful photos! did you get these made into prints or are they scans from the negs? where did you have them done! also…thanks for the mention:)

    jen: these were made into prints, and then i just scanned the actual prints myself. less than ideal, but it’s pricey to have medium-format negs scanned for some reason. they were developed at B&H.

    next on my list … get my hands on a film scanner! the actual prints look better than these scans.

    thanks for the info, brian. i think they look great.

    i like how timeless most of the images seem.

    See, the problem Brian, is that I always leave here with a bunch of new links added to my google reader, bringing my unread posts up over the 400 mark.

    Also, these are great and damn you.

    I just got the Epson v500 and I am so impressed with it’s negative scanning. For a flatbed, it’s the best I’ve seen (and really reasonably priced).

    these are so nice brian. i’m really enjoying all your cape cod shots!
    (also, i have the epson 500– you’re welcome to borrow it anytime. it’s small + lightweight (i.e. train-friendly) and easy to use)

    I love these – they have a vintage feel to them; makes them seem timeless.

    wait a minute, why did you leave? i’m having a hard time understanding that. :)

    Oh my. These are so great. I want to go back to the beach again and shoot with ms. diana. I need to get a negative scanner too, so let me know what you find!

    I’m loving the vintage feel of these! Looks like the Cape was inspiring.

    For scanning, I’ve been really pleased with the results from the Epson Perfection 4490. It does a wonderful job on med-format negatives, and you can get it for less than $200. The only (minor) drawback is that it has a small light source so you can only scan 3 med-format negatives at a time and not a full contact sheet. But who cares? You’ll save so much money getting your rolls done “process only” (uncut!) and will be getting much better images from the scans.

    Good luck!

    I love the sailboat pic! Know exactly where I would hang that one…

    These photos are awesome! That diana and you are a good match.
    (I’ve got the epson v500 too….love it, and it has saved me tons of money)

    woohoo! you and diana are on fire!

    Love the slow sign and the tree photo below it. I just got a Diana and I’m excited to try it.

    Seeing your photos reminds me how much I love the Diana. Great shots. The feel of summer really comes through.
