Konica

December Scans #2

In addition to the last post, here are some colour images from the Konica that was gifted to me from my girlfriends sister Lindy. Shot on Fuji Velvia 100 ISO and sent to Hillvale to be developed externally. Just like the last post, no post processing on these ones and they need a proper scan. Gotta love the colours of Velvia. photo, portrait, saturated, beach, coke, fuji, velvia, Danny Armstrong photo,

December scans

I hope everyone had a great new year! I certainly did. Very chilled for once and it was great fun heading up to explore Shoal Bay for the first time. Anyway, last month I got some scans back from Hillvale Photo in Melbourne. It was the first time I'd used the service which was pretty handy if you are after a no frills development service with plenty of time up your sleeve.

I haven't received notification of where my negatives are, although I did receive the digital scans in a dropbox link. The scans were pretty bad and contained a lot of noise, especially on the Black and White Portra 400 film. I'm not sure if it's from the user or developer end because I haven't seen the physical negs, but I might choose to go somewhere else next time.

All of the photos uploaded in my film contain no post processing from my end, to keep the original in tact. I'm not sure what spec Hillvale are running, but the contrast and gamma differs on nearly every shot. Once I get the negs back, I will get them under a lightbox and properly scan them. Here are the best of the bunch of the Black and White roll:
