The raindrops could be scratches on the film

Faces in the rain

Details of an eclectic building near where I live, shot on a rainy June weekend. Panasonic G6, Voigtlander 35 2.5, FCPX, ImpulZ Tetrachrome 400. It’s a bit wobbly; difficult to hold a camera and umbrella at the same time.

The G6 and the Voigtlander Color-Skopar 35/2.5 are a great combo, they can capture and hold on to an enormous amount of detail. The raindrops in the still above could almost be scratches on the film. The G6 is still new to me (more on this later) and I’m experimenting with settings. As an experiment, this was shot super-flat: contrast -5, sharpness -4, saturation -1, and NR -5. I’m not sure I’d recommend this, to be honest. With 8-bit colour space cameras I think it’s a better idea to try to get as close as possible to what you want the finished output to look like.
