Through a Church Window
Priest’s cassock through a window at St. Stephen’s church – a small heritage church in the Mt. Newton Valley.
The glass in the windows is from the mid-late 1800s, and very wobbly and distorting.
The first picture below shows the effect with a badly focused center, and nice sharp corners – the opposite of what a lot of my lenses look like.
I have not shot the Canon AE-1 Program for a year or more, and am not sure why – it is a very good shooter, and even fits in a (large) coat pocket.
And this is my first time shooting Kentmere film.
I have to say it is remarkably easy to scan – it lays very flat in the film holders, no cupping or curling.
And little customisation is needed for scan settings of most images.
It is even quite affordable so I have no reason to not shoot more of it.

I’ve not yet tried Kentmere 400, but I’ve used the 100 a couple times and have not enjoyed how it tends to blow highlights. Looks like that’s not really a problem with the 400.
Hi Jim. That is interesting to hear. I just bought a couple of rolls of 100 so will keep that in mind. Perhaps try some bracketing. A friend is experimenting with it right now too including development. I’ll have to check in with him about that too.
