Slough

 

My wife likes this one, I have no idea what to do with it. I might run it through Lightroom and see what else I could do with it. It was this really nice, foggy afternoon that I snapped this one, and it’s way underexposed. It’s all a learning experience with film I’m finding…

School at night – 3

Last one of these. I was completely surprised as to how the colors turned out here. Again using Provia 400 on my Canon AE-1 Program. I seem to remember the sky being a bit more pink-gold than whatever you might call this, but I fell in love with the symmetry when I was walking up to the Science building for class one night and snapped this one. 17

School at night – 2

Another snapshot of my former school at night/during the golden hour. I couldn’t get a good shot of it, but there’s another building on my left with similar features that makes for an impressive view during sunsets and when the clouds reveal themselves like this. Maybe with a fisheye next time… 04

School at night

16Last year I finished up my AAS at Everett Community College, and my arrival time often coincided with what is commonly known as “the golden hour” in photography. This provided a lot of opportunity for me to play with my AE-1, sometimes successfully. I like the way the colors turned out here, and would like to try this again with one of my DSLRs someday.

Shot with Provia 400. I believe I had one of my zoom lenses on for this shot, but don’t remember.

4th of July

So this tells you how often I get my film developed. We don’t have anyone nearby that does it besides grocery stores and I don’t really trust my film there after getting back some bad stuff from Costco. So, here’s from the Arlington 4th of July Parade…

Arlington July 4th Parade Old Fire Engine

This is my first from a roll of Superia. It’s a pretty cheap roll of film and accessible at most pharmacies/grocery/retail type stores that still carry 35mm. I wanted to try it out because of that fact, and I really enjoy the softness that I’m seeing with it, as well as the pastel-ish(?) colors that it features. I’ll probably grab more of this in the future. More shots to come. All taken on my Canon AE-1 Program, all with the 50mm 1.8 prime lens.
