This scanner is great. I'm scanning negatives now. It is way easier to print infrared with Photoshop than it is in the darkroom. I absolutely hated the darkroom.
Anyway, this is Niagara Falls, probably in 1990. Its taken with a Contax RTS2 the fantastic Zeiss 25mm f2.8 lens and my favorite film, Kodak High Speed Infrared Black and White. This was an amazing film, not only because of the cool infrared effect, but because it yielded a gorgeous tonal range. Very grainy, I had to use special development techniques to control it. Unfortunately, they didn't make it it 120 or I could have used the Hasselblad.
Niagara Falls is much more interesting to visit in the winter. There's nobody around and everything is covered in ice.
