In January I purchased a 35mm Nikon FM at Kerrisdale Cameras and then a Nikkor 50mm prime on eBay. So far I have used only Ilford XP2 400 B&W and Fuji Superia XTRA 400. Without autofocus and all the other features of my D800e street shooting is much more challenging but I am enjoying developing a better feel for light and paying very careful attention to framing.
The images are from negative scans made with a fairly low-end Canon 9000F-II and VueScan followed by LR5 for simple negative inversion and some white balance. I avoid cropping and messing around with the colour. The scanning process is a puzzle as I lose control of the image without monitor and printer calibration.
Next month I start learning how to make my own B&W prints and enlargements at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Colour processing will have to wait.
