Canon General / 35mm Film Processing
« on: July 29, 2013, 03:26:23 PM »
My mother-in-law located a bunch of old 35mm film that has been used.  My wife would like to get these developed and changed to digital images (CD or online).  Does anyone know the cheapest place to get this done?

Thanks

I love those shots with the Milky Way.  I have seen some stunning photos like that, but I have never seen the Milky Way like that myself.  Does it look that way to the naked eye, or is it only in the photos that it comes out.

(Sorry to post such a naive question, but I really want to learn how to do this).

The Milky Way really looks like that in person (just need very dark, out in nowhere area, to avoid city lights).  Look at post above to see settings for taking pic and avoiding star trails.

Milky Way over the Delicate Arch - Arches National Park - Moab, Utah

I can probably download it and see if it is in the meta data, but I'm lazy.  What shutter speed, aperture, focal length, if you don't mind. 

If I were to guess I'd say, 24mm, 1/30th shutterspeed (before star trails kick in), side flash lighting of the arch, and an iso of 3200... with grain clean up in post.



Shot settings -- ISO 6400, 17mm, f4 (wide open), 20 seconds.  Would have shot at 3200 if I had f2.8 lens.  Also, grain cleaned up in post, some clarity to bring out the Milky Way and turned down greens in horizon line (all in Lightroom).  As for star trails, there is a formula to avoid -- rule is divide 500 by 35mm (equivalent) of focal length.  So with my full frame sensor shot -- shutter length cannot exceed 500/17 or 29 seconds.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Monoprice camera accessories

I've never bought photography equipment from monoprice, but have bought a number of AV related items.  The items are always work great and customer service is excellent.  This year (and much to everyones surprise) they had a huge space at the Consumer Electronics Show.  Monoprice is here to stay and can't wait to get my hands on some inexpensive photo gear.

Black & White / Re: black and white with the use of selective colors

I saw this topic after looking through all the galleries.  This is a hard area, but it can work in some circumstances.  Here is my favorite from all my selective color shots.

Here is one that I took outside of Granbury, Texas.

I like mpix.com.  Good quality, fast and easy. They also have touch up or color correction if needed.

I used the Tamron SP 2x teleconverter on some shots.  It works well with the lens.  Focus is a bit slower, so have to key in on fast moving objects before you start firing.  The only other effect was a bit of softness is the raw images, but Lightoom sharpening brought them right back.
