  1. I agree, and think it's a shame, but it's probably saved (or allowed them to use otherwise) millions of dollars on FX. I'd personally rather that fewer daemons be seen than have badly composited / animated ones for every character, or have to reduce the production in other ways.
  2. Black and white film is a lot more forgiving to scan, especially if you use one with loads of exposure latitude like HP5+ or Tri-X or something. The world's your oyster when it comes to post-processing those. I've shot a roll of Velvia 50 this weekend, and I'm slightly nervous as to how they'll scan. Most of the shots were taken in autumnal woodland on a gloomy, rainy day, so I'm hoping I'll be ok with the highlights. I also underexposed most of the frames by a small amount to see if it will make the colours pop. I should get them developed tomorrow, so it'll be interesting to see the results (both pre and post scan).
  3. A few from Padley Gorge today (where it p*ssed it down most of the day!) Burbage Brook in Padley Gorge by fishyfish_arcade, on Flickr Burbage Brook in spate by fishyfish_arcade, on Flickr Padley millstone by fishyfish_arcade, on Flickr

  5. I always tend to get a puple / magenta cast in my Provia scans too. I've made a Lightroom preset to tone it down a bit, but I think it might just be the way that film works. This is one that I've processed to remove it, but there's still a slight hint of magenta noticeable in the sky. FILM - Number 897 by fishyfish_arcade, on Flickr
  6. S2 VFX breakdown reel (with a little Dawn of the Dead Easter egg).
  7. A few photos from a wet day at the races the other week. All Olympus OM-1 and various lenses, shot on Ilford HP5+.

  8. Because it was in the episode of Giri/Haji I just watched...
  9. I've done that loads of times, especially when I was younger and would take flexi-leave to see an afternoon mid-week showing back in the 90s. The gold achievement is to be the only person in the screening and then fall asleep. I missed almost all of Dark City getting that one. I've always gone to the cinema alone on the multiple occasions where my wife / kids / mates didn't want to see a film. In fact, I'm on my way home from a Billy-no-mates viewing of Terminator: Dark Fate as I type this.
  10. There's an absolute ton of Lightroom photo editing tutorials on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=lightroom+photo+editing+tutorial Some of them can go a bit OTT with the edits, but even if you don't do exactly the same, you should learn enough to get a better idea of what does what.
  11. A shot from Sorrento last year which, now edited, looks like a Tomb Raider level. Tomb Raider by fishyfish_arcade, on Flickr
  12. A photo I took last year in Sorrento. I only half finished the roll of film and then forgot it was in the camera - something I only realised when opening the back and seeing the film inside! Doh! Luckily most of the shots were ok. Olympus OM-1, Zuiko 28mm f/3.5 & Kodak Ektar. FILM - The way to the old harbour by fishyfish_arcade, on Flickr
  13. Thanks. Flippy screens FTW when getting low points of view.
  14. Another previously unprocessed shot from my NYC trip earlier in the year. Arrival by fishyfish_arcade, on Flickr
