C’s Comics (Bedtime Imprints).

Imprints.

The frame-by-frame play-by-play of life.

Her imprints left on the table, and in my mind.

And imprints #22 and # 23 on a roll of film — click, click.

And the click of a light switch.

Goodnight.

—Peter.

    Peter, does Print indicate that these are scanned prints?

    SO GREAT!!

    (I thought you said this was just a test roll?!!)

    I am loving on these images, and what they represent.

    On a side note–they remind me of the comics from the “Captain Underpants” series…but that is another story for another day.

    A great job by both of you.

    All I can say is: DUDE you are BACK!!

    While I think it’s fun to shoot with, I’m not a fan of the C-41 black and whites, they are terrible to print with, the tonal range is pretty ropey. But the M3, that’s a totally different story. I’m so glad to see you using one. I often have a biting urge to get rid of all my digital gear and return to film, which I just feel for many reasons, I much prefer.

    Tri-X, Tmax 400, Portra, this is how I dream; where everything becomes something better. It’s poetry in a can. It’s everything that means photography, to me.

    • I have a few prints in my home, made from C-41 B&W film that were made back in the 90s. They look great.

      Since my return to film in 2008, I’ve been photographing exclusively with Portra, Tri-x, and sometimes HP5+. In comparison, the Kodak BW400CN is good. At least to my eye.

      • And I agree, about film being “poetry in a can”.

        It’s been a long time since I worked with those films, close to 20 years now (yikes), but I remember them being muddy in the midtone and then a bit overly contrasty in the shadow and highlights, XP2 being the worst. It made printing them more complicated, relative to something like T-Max 400 which is tonally rich and dreamy in that regard. If you’re getting what you want from it though, great, because the added convenience can be a great benefit.

    and so beautifully apt that this photo is made with film too…
