What’s so funny?

this one starts with Visual Effects Society NYC awards night. I was waiting for the new lens -had nothing at the time- so I went there with a borrowed lens (thanks Erik).  It was pretty dark inside, wasn’t expecting anything usable would come out but iso 2000 helped me save the night.

finally I traded in my two 25+ year old Summicrons to get a brand new Summicron 35mm ASPH, it was a pretty good deal for me considering that I wasn’t shooting with the 50mm at all. I like how Leica glass keeps its value over time. All photos from this point on are exposed on Tri-x at 800 with the new lens.

first impressions: it’s crazy sharp, so sharp that it even feels a bit too clinical sometimes, but I really like the contrast, which was the main reason for me upgrading from the pre-ASPH model.

I like the way highlights leak out of the frame on a negative, especially when the lens is wide open. feels more organic and makes a unique border to each photo. I like to use that on darkroom prints, too.

I wanted to get that natural border in my scans as well and that’s when I realized how brutally my scanner(nikon coolscan v ed) has been cropping the photos by default, from top and bottom. I had to physically hack the device with a utility knife so now it scans the whole frame
