4th

Setting up at the entertainment centre for the reception.

5th

Glenn and Tania's wedding! I went through six rolls in one day:

That's 24 + 32 + 37 + 36 + 25 + 24 = 178 shots!

The HP5+ is, again, quite badly scratched. I cleaned out my bulk film loader the night before the wedding, then loaded the two rolls that I used. Unfortunately Digital ICE4 doesn't work with silver-based photos. It takes a long time to clean up a photo with scratches and dust all over it.

The Superia X-tra's were from Andrew, since he didn't need them now he has his K100D digital. I didn't really shoot much at the reception. I could have done with even more speed there - even ISO 400 was slow and the end of the 160S is half useless.

Here are scaled raw scans of the films. They're not cropped or colour corrected at all.

Roll 1

Ilford HP5+ 400

Before the wedding - people getting ready and being photographed.

I think I goofed up with the exposure-compensation dial on my camera. The photos against the lounge room window seem to be under-exposed instead of over-exposed. Still, contre-jour is alright.

Roll 2

Ilford HP5+ 400

A bit more at home, the wedding ceremony, and photos in the park.

Roll 3

Fujicolor Pro 160S

In the park after the wedding. Then heading off to the first photo shoot location.

Roll 4

Fujicolor Pro 160S

The first photo shoot location, somewhere out past Perthville. Then some of the reception (ISO 160 was way too slow).

Roll 5

Fujicolor Superia X-tra 400

Reception.

Roll 6

Fujicolor Superia X-tra 400

Reception, and finishing off the roll at home.

24th

My Pentacon Six TL medium format camera arrived today! I won it in an eBay auction on the 20th.

29th

Eighteen rolls of 220 film I won in another eBay auction arrived today. This stuff should last me most of the year.

I put in a roll of Konica (Minolta) Centuria pro 400 and took my first medium format photos.
