    they play a couple songs from them on the radio here, it's okay I guess, but I'm not 'hip' enough to like them proper.

    Any film heads on here want to share scanning technicques? When I scan, I drop the contrast way down, it doesn't look nice, but it retains as much information as possible. Make sure you don't drop it down too far, gotta find a happy medium:



    Then, I do all my curves and contrast in photoshop, and remove any scratches or spots on the film using a wacom tablet and clone stamp:



    And for anybody who says that zeiss lenses aren't good, check out the 100% crop from the original scan:



    and ali, I'll see your 1.2 and raise you a 1.1


    If that lens is actually yours, for god's sake take the filter off!!!!

    I look at it this way, you spend $2500 on a top of the line canon lens, a lens that is made with special glass and has thousands of hours of research and development into it, and now you've got a piece of shit glass thing on the front of it. Think like this, you're gonna go bang your old lady with a condom on, sure it'll work fine, but it's much better if you take that sucker off and hit it raw.

    edit: it's one thing if you're using a polarizer or a red/yellow (for black&white) but uv's are pretty pointless these days, modern lenses are built much better and withstand alot more abuse. Hell, I've cleaned my L shit with a tshirt before, never hurt it.

    Another thing that filters can do is cause reflections, here's a picture I took years ago, before I knew any better. I had a UV filter on the lens, and it caused the lights from the mojo 13 sign to reflect on the bottom of the pic. It took me a long time to figure out why they were coming out like that, ever since then I ditched my UV filters. Apparently I didn't know anything about white balance at the time either

    Never thought about it like that. But I'm still too scared to leave the glass bare on my $3000 1950's summilux...

    I don't to be honest.
    I'm not getting anywhere near as much work as I want. I get an occasional high paying job that can last me a few weeks and I'm living on that by the skin of my teeth after paying 200$ a week rent etc.
    I basically have just marketed myself hard, website, facebook page, doing lots of free work if it gives you professional photos to add to the portfolio. I don't do any free shit any more though.
    It's all about looking professional, (which is mainly why I spent so much on a D3S) and LOOKING as if you get heaps of work when in reality you don;'t. It's all word of mouth.
    Takes a while to get to that stage and I've got a long way to go.

    This is interesting. What scanner/software are you using? I'm gonna try this.

    So i need some advice. Should i sell the d7000 seeing as i can prolly get like 1300 for it easy. And take that cash and get a d700, or just chill with the d7000 and get nice glass. It's a sick camera and i can use lenses on both my cameras
