Little Things Thursday

Welcome back to Little Things Thursday! I loved everyone’s blog post last week.  I took so much encouragement from your shares! Thanks for that!

I’ve got a few more film shares from our fall mountain get-away. One thing we like to do on trips is drive off the beaten path.  We saw this road and decided to detour…mainly because we saw a huge flock/gaggle of turkeys in a field.


I really liked the color in these in spite of the steady rain that fell all that day. And I love the way the light reflected in these wet mountain roads.   One of you asked last week if film scans are editable. Yes, you can edit film scans, but I find that with a great developer/lab that it is rarely needed. I usually just edit blemishes, under eye circles, and that sort of thing. Your lab will work with you to get the look you like and there are a couple scanners that can give you varying results. I indicate my scanner of choice (Noritsu here) and whether I like my images cooler/warmer/neutral, how I like my mid-tones, and how I like my contrast. This saves so much time in achieving your look. Of course, the type of film you use plays a huge role in getting those looks so you need to have that in mind before loading the film. Again, this is Portra 400. Our beach trip last month was all Ektar 100 for punchy colors.


I hope you guys are all having a great start to your holiday season! Let’s see how it is going!

  2. What a great place to stop and explore! Love the green popping against the pink of G’s shirt.

  3. I’m always in awe when you talk about working with film. It becomes very apparent how much I have yet to learn. 🙂 As always – you inspire me.

    Have a great weekend my friend.

  6. The light is truly inviting…I’m drawn to the idea of a leisurely stroll in that place!

  7. These are totally awesome Kim! I love how her shirt just pops out from the background, but not so much to be harsh! Both shots are lovely!

  8. Beautiful light!
    Know nothing about scanners – can you direct me where to read about it? I have Photoshop CS3, but never have done layers, so…am a pre-kindergardner in these thigns:)

  9. They turned out great Kim.

  10. I would have done the same thing! Wild turkeys are all over the place near my parents and we always slam on the breaks and reverse when we see them. And the road made for a great backdrop!

  11. Thank you for elaborating on your process using film… assuming they’re digital files, how marvelous they can be edited (or not) afterwards – a true merging of film and digital! And I didn’t realize a lab could tweak the prints to your personal preference (while maintaining the integrity of the film used of course). The evolution of photography always astounds me! I love the back light on the photos above, and the glistening roads add to the magic, wonderful Kim!
