First Roll-E-6

Yesterday I processed my first roll of Ektachrome and I was completely blown away. It is a real pity that you can’t make prints of this beautiful film. How could this film have ever been discontinued?

When they announced Ektachrome’s return, I knew that I wanted to try out the film and I think I am in love. I used this first time to examine the film by experimenting and exposing on different points of interest by window light with my two trusty mannequin friends.  i used my Minolta X-700 for this test.

I did not make any color adjustments but I did increase on the blacks in levels between (5-8). I always find when I scan my images they flatten out somewhat or maybe my monitor needs calibrating.



This was my first set of testing with this roll, I will share the second and third set within the next few days. Are you shooting this film? What is your workflow when scanning?
