A Roll Of Ektar

This week’s roll is Ektar 100, a fantastic color negative film that I ran through the M3. The Ektar sports some really fine film grain as well as fantastic color reproduction. Pretty happy with the film overall.

I’ve been getting a few questions about how I process and scan each roll. Simple answer? I take all my film to Light Waves Imaging, a full service professional lab here in San Francisco where I get all my film processed, scanned, and printed. I can even get very uncommon formats processed, like the 127 I shoot with my old Ansco. Their chemistry is spot on, and I’m always thrilled with the results I get from their services. Here are most of the shots from my latest roll of Ektar:

    1. Hi Bijan,

      Most of these have no post processing applied. Sometimes I’ll adjust the blacks to taste, but other than that, these are the scans as I originally got them from Light Waves. They’re a great lab!

  1. These are beautiful! I love the warmth of the tones. Autumn light in this city is so gorgeous. For some reason, I really like the photo with the fan. There’s something so authentic-feeling when you see a picture of a vintage item taken with a vintage camera!
