Father Roger Lavoie

Another shot I'm not sure if I posted here or not. Couldn't find it in the first 8 pages of the People forum so perhaps not. If not, here it is again.

One of the problems with shooting film nowadays is that it's all so good. No more of that "grainy" stuff we had in the 60s and 70s. All the films now are sharp, contrasty and grainless. So the quest began to find a "grainy" solution with modern films. I tried several ASA 400 films, and tried to bring out the worst in them. The two "best" films were Kentmere 400 and Foma 400, both a touch more grainy than the others. I used Kentmere for this shot, and also used the half-frame format to enhance the grain size.

I shot the picture with a 100mm f3.5 Zuiko lens, Olympus Pen FT, and developed the Kentmere 400 in HC110 1:63 for 16 minutes for as much contrast as I could pull out. As is normal with me, the negative was then digitized with a Canon Rebel, macro lens and light box, and processed in GIMP as I would any other digital file. I think I've managed to create a "retro" look here, hopefully reminiscent of 1960 magazine work!!!! Lots of fun! It's the only shot of a Priest I've ever taken in a confessional . . . nice that he let me!

Thanks for looking in!

Re: Father Roger Lavoie

Interesting way to digitize. I should try that for fims beyond the format restrictions of my Canon and Epson scanners.
