After trying out every possible setting on Vuescan, I think I found some decent settings I can live with. I also found out that Tri-X scans much nicer than APX 100, I don’t know why, maybe APX 100 just isn’t a “scanner-friendly” film. For those who are interested: I developed the Tri-X at 20°C with Xtol diluted 1:1 for 8.45 minutes, moving every 30 seconds. I then scanned them as color negatives in RAW, black and white points set to 0, curve points set to 0.25 and 0.75. Played with the gamma modifier sometimes, but did most of the adjusting later in Lightroom.
I also decided to post some non-street stuff, just because I think some of the frames turned out nice. So you’ll get to peek into my private life now…
Santiago in the kitchen. I think it was the second day after he moved to Berlin, when he was still trying to figure out all that paper stuff. German bureaucracy…

We were trying to find something to eat around Oranienstr, but all the good restaurants were closed. It was a sunday, but still…It’s freaking Oranienstr!
Ended up in Miss Saigon, which served fantastic food that day.
While we were waiting for food, a group of French guys came in…
Weird position to chill, don’t you think?

I’ve seen this car around, they must have been painting it for several months now (and with a tiny brush). Dedication.
