Shot some film again.

Updated: May 7

Finally, after three years I loaded up my Nikon FE2 with some Kodak Portra 400 and walked down to SoHo looking for some targets. SoHo is always such a fun place to shoot as there’s interesting graffiti everywhere which always makes for a great backdrop to street scenes. After wandering around shooting for a few hours, I caught the metro over to Tsim Sha Tsu and had the negatives developed in 30 minutes at “Dot-Well” Photo Workshop on Carnarvon Rd. Pretty sure Hong Kong is one of the only places in the world where you can do this 😁. Took the negatives home and scanned them on my Nikon V-ED scanner which still worked perfectly after not being used for a few years. I‘m still using the original Nikon Scan 4 software on a ten-year-old MacBook Air Running 10.6.8. The software won't run on anything later.

Gear used: Nikon FE2, Nikon 35/2 Ai-S, Nikon 50/1.4 Ai-S, Kodak Portra 400 film, Nikon V-ED film scanner.

Old Rolleiflex shot through a shop window. Nikon FE2 & 50/1.4 Ai-S.
