Re: A Brief Return to Film, Could Use Some Help

One thing I didn't see you mention is the scanning method. That makes a lot of difference.

Another is how do the negs look? If they're thin, you're underexposing, and that does lead to grain.

Negative film is almost impossible to overexpose, so I suspect your scanning method for blown highlights. I deliberately overcooked, by up to 4 stops, some of the last roll of Fuji 200 I used to see how it did. I had to change the scanner exposure, and change the gamma to make it look good.
