There’s a teeny tiny bit of brightness left in the sky and it is well past 4.30 – wonderful!
Not this sky though – I took this one a few days ago when the sun was setting at about lunch time! (Exaggerating. About 4pm).
This is definitely the time of year to invest in the higher numbered ISO films – I’m using Kodak Pro Porta 800 ISO here which is great for low light. Yes, the graininess is noticable, but film graininess is something to be celebrated and treasured – unlike digital “noise” which never looks quite right.
It also means you can shoot indoors without a flash – though without a tungsten filter images will appear yellowish and I will admit the one below was tweaked a bit in Photoshop to correct the white balance.
I love the ‘bokeh’ in this one, although that’s down to the magical camera, not the film.
And finally – it was only after seeing this photo that I realised that yes, these jeans are too big for me now and look awful! I need to get a full-length mirror at home.
There’s more to come – I managed to squeeze 38 photos out of this roll of film!
All photos taken with Pentax K1000 and Kodak Porfessional Porta 800 35mm film
I’ve come over all brave – must be the new year or something, I’ve made a vlog! It was very spur of the moment – the web cam was sat there staring at me so I just started talking! What do you think – should I do more of these or just stick to typing?
