Spring steps

Spring is finally here – time to get out and start shooting.

I started scanning my own film recently after buying an Epson V700. It’s something I used to do as part of a previous job but I’m a littleĀ out of practice. For a start, different films scan differently – obviously. More than anything else, performing colour correction well is proving tricky. I’ve mainly been working with Provia scans (which have come out heavy in purple and magenta) and adjusting things in Lightroom.

Anyway, enough technical talk. I drove down to Grain recently and the sun was in just the right place to shoot a derelict barn that had caught my eye previously. Here are some hand-held shots taken with the Mamiya 6.
