Olympus OM-2 SPOT/PROGRAM, Zuiko Auto-S 50mm f/1.8, 1/200s, f11 – Rollei RPX 400 rated at ISO 320
Developed in Ilford DDX at 1:4, 10 mins at 20°c.

I’m still experimenting with Hamish Gill’s pixl-latr and the excellent Negative Lab Pro Lightroom plugin for digitising my negatives and the more I use this combination, the more I like it!

I’ve never done much tweaking of my film images in Lightroom before posting them… it just doesn’t seem ‘right’ to do so somehow, but at the moment I’m hardly doing anything at all! Negative Lab Pro handles the negative/positive conversion beautifully and I find myself just making slight adjustments to contrast before I’m happy with the image… Maybe I’m just easy to please?

Digitised using Nikon D5500 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8, pixl-latr and Negative Lab Pro plugin with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.

Fujifilm X-T2, Fujinon XF 18-135mm f3.5~5.6 R LM OIS WR at 46mm, 1/240s, f8, ISO 200

I’ve started tinkering with Capture One Express for Fujifilm and this is the first image I’ve edited with it…

It’s too early to tell if I’m going to get on with the software or not but one thing I definitely don’t like is the lack of any way to add a watermark to images! (I used GraphicConverter 11 to do that here…)
