film photography

day 70

Oh happy day!

I received my first set of scans back!  Most of the images are purely for learning purposes so the composition is pretty crummy but some I really worked on and they came out ok.  It has been so much fun slowing down the process of creating an image and seeing the light a new way.  Learning how to use a light meter and trust my meter has been a struggle.  I am so use to my Canon 5D Mark III.  I am not sure how much I will shoot film because it is rather pricey.  But so far I am hooked and addicted to it.  I have a bunch of new film sitting in the freezer right now.  Plus all of that expired film in there too.  I can't wait until I am confident in my film photography.  There is something about film that just can't be captured digitally.  The presets that I have to make digital images look like film are good but there is nothing like the real thing!

I shot this roll with my Canon AE-1 Program and a roll of Kodak Tri-X 400.

day 70 thank you for the small surprise that was delivered in my scans.  I'm happy there were a handful of images that I can be proud of.
