Two Lane Highway

Sunset on rural road on the outskirts of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Used a Nikon F2 Photomic camera body, Kodak Ektachrome transparency film, and Nikon Coolscan 9000 scanner.

  1. The dying light on those lines is amazing. And the subtle details in the greenery. My scanner could never pull this off (one of the reasons it’s just about useless with most slides).

  2. Which scanner do you have?

    Unfortunately at this small size a lot of the detail is not visible as it is quite beautiful viewing it large on a 24″ monitor. I shot this during the early 80’s and don’t remember what ISO the Ektachrome was but it must have been close to 400 as there is quite a lot of visible grain at size.

    At the time I was really influenced by Jay Maisel’s photography and when I came upon this scene it made me think of a photo he had taken with the power lines lit up similarly. He is such a talent, and one I could never measure up to, but I gave it a try on this shot. LOL

  3. I have a cheap flatbed scanner (get what you pay for). I figured it was better to spend money on the things that will help me get better (film, equipment, etc.). I can always get a nice dedicated film scanner later, right? Oh well. Guess I’m in too big a hurry to get better . . .
