Through a Yellow Lens

Details

I shot this roll of film through a yellow flash gel. Yellow and orange filters are a great way to add some contrast to your B&W photos. I expected the imperfections of the gel to give these photos a dreamy feel, but they came out surprisingly sharp!

Mystery Film

Details

Out of curiosity, I ordered some “My Heart” C41 film on eBay. Everything I had read online indicated that what I got would pretty much be a random film respooled into different canisters. I ended up actually getting a cinema film, which I’m pretty sure was just Koday Vision3 250D. I shot this first roll in the south end of Halifax, NS.

First time processing E6

Details

This was my first time developing slide film myself. The results were far from perfect but I’m happy with the images after a bit of color correction. The photos were taken in Halifax, NS.

Saturday in Halifax

Details

These photos were taken over a day in Halifax (with a few taken in Dartmouth well). I tested a couple things out with this roll. First, it was Fuji Superia Xtra 400 pushed to 1600. I also took some of the photos with a polarized filter (the daytime images of flowers, as well as the train/harbour). I was very surprised at how well it held up at 1600. There is noticeable grain but certainly more shadow detail than I expected, particularly in the night shots. The polarized filter added some really stunning color depth to the flower images as well.

Astrum is Underrated

Details

Astrum Foto 400 (also known as Svema 400) is an excellent 400-speed film with fine grain and solid contrast. Just be sure to store and load it in the dark as it can suffer from a “light piping” issue. These photos were taken around Halifax and Dartmouth, NS.

They’re overdeveloped, so what?

Details

These photos were taken in Halifax and Dartmouth NS, from my first roll of film using a half-frame camera. I developed these during a heat wave, and tried to appropriately adjust the development time for 27 degrees Celsius, from the recommended 20 degrees. I failed.

Photos taken on a Sunday morning at Rainbow Haven beach in Cole Harbour, NS. The film used expired in 1992 and was likely preserved poorly. It was rated at 100 ISO and shot at 25 ISO.
