Nikon F90X Pro, Sigma 28~200mm f/3.8-5.6 DL Macro – Ilford Delta 400 rated at ISO 320

The more I play with the Negative Lab Pro plugin for Lightroom the more impressed I am with it… the results from DSLR digitisation are far better than those from either my flatbed or film scanners.

Digitised using Nikon D5600 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8, pixl-latr and Negative Lab Pro plugin with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.

Another image from a recent wander around Derby… I don’t know how long it is since W.E. Savage & Son ceased trading but the shop has been empty for at least 12 years!

Mamiya C330, Mamiya-Sekor 80mm f/2.8 – 1/60s, f11, – Kodak T-Max 400
Developed in Ilford Ilfotec DD-X at 1:4, 8 mins at 20°c.

I’m currently trying out a Mamiya C330 twin-lens reflex (TLR) camera and this image is from the second roll of film I’ve put through it.

It’s a heavy beast but incredibly nice to use, and (as I’m sure I’ve mentioned before) I love the square format!

This is milepost 22 on what was the Cromford & High Peak Railway (C&HPR) in Derbyshire, now the High Peak Trail.

Digitised using Nikon D5600 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8, pixl-latr and Negative Lab Pro plugin with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Five years ago it was the business premises of H.O. Bowley Ltd, Hosiery & fabrics in Loughborough during a stroll to the (sadly now closed) Tap & Mallet pub on Nottingham Road.

I really should do more of this kind of photography… even if wandering the streets at night can get you a reputation! 😁
