Film Diaries: Nature

I meant to name yesterday’s post Film Diaries but I guess I named it Film Files instead but such is life. This is still off the first few rolls of film I shot ever. I mixed in a couple different rolls to get a theme with nature. If it has a leaf in it then it counted as nature for me.

One of the things I noticed with editing these images since I don’t have negatives to work off of and scan at a high resolution, is that you need to put more into them to get the detail I am used to with a digital file. Once I sat and took a few minutes to do an edit without interruption I am much happier with today’s result versus’s yesterday. Enjoy.

Film Files: Monumental

While I am not sure if the Kennedy Center counts as monument its getting tossed into this. So, my super secret new camera is a Fuji 645 Medium Format. This is the first film camera that I have successfully shot film through and developed it.

I have always wanted to try film and I really love medium format. There is something sexy about the resolution you get out of it. Sadly, the scans are low res jpegs I got from Lomography and I think it will be the last time I use them for development, instead going with a local developer to get the negatives and scan myself at a higher resolution. I’m still excited to see the results. While nothing spectacular and considering I was using older Kodak black and white film I had laying around I am pleased with how they came out. It gives me a reason to continue shooting film and practicing with it as a medium. Enjoy
