I haven’t processed any new images in the past few weeks. The films are still in the cameras unfinished. I was poking around in my archives looking for an image for this week that wasn’t trees, water, rocks or fog. I found a nice one.
I shot this photo a few years ago when I was shooting color transparency film almost exclusively. Yes, this macro of a rosebud was converted manually from a scan of a color slide. I like the B&W version. It captures the essence of rose without the distraction of color.
This photo would have been taken using my usual macro rig: Nikon f3HP, Nikon 75-150 zoom with nikon 3T two element close-up lens and of course mounted on a tripod. The film was either Fuji Provia or Astia.
If you’re curious, here’s the link to the original color version (second image).
