FRIDAY'S SPECIAL FILM - Nice and Slow on a Cloudy Morning


Blogger micki said...

Camera - Minolta Maxxum 9000
Film - Ilford PANF Plus 50
Shutter Speed - not noted
Aperture Setting - f-22 Aperture Mode
Lens - Sigma 24mm
Cokin ND 8 and Grad ND 1
Scanning Method - Epson Perfection 4990 Photo scanner

It is hoped that you would respect my ownership of the images posted here on Shutterbug Underexposed, despite the ease with which you could copy my photos. If you would like a true photographic print of any of my images, please contact me at and I will be happy to provide you with one.

This is the photo I had mentioned two weeks ago, the one that gave me the effect I was hoping for from this film but the horizon was a bit too crooked. I decided to share this film’s quality with you, so I placed the photo on the scanner at an angle and cropped the edges. Of all the long exposures I took on this roll of film, this was the only one that came out as I had hoped. I actually don’t know how long this exposure was for, as I had marked down in my notebook that the shot had been a mistake and I didn’t expect it to come out. I’m guessing it was 30 seconds and definitely no longer, as I was on aperture mode at the time. The Efke film I’m shooting now should produce results even better than this due to its higher silver halide crystal content. Here’s hoping…

The water almost looks like a sheet of ice or maybe icing on a cake. Very nice softness.

Great shot! The use of ND filters during the daylight hours for long exposures seems pretty interesting!!

Lovely image, Micki. Surreal effect. One suggestion? I'd level the horizon.
