this one roll of 35mm, 100ISO, 36 exposure film contained photos between march 2010 and january 2011. i guess it dragged on for as long as it did because of 2 things:
- 100ISO. i have no idea what i was thinking when i picked it up. its not very good in low-light areas.
- its from my fisheye. i dont usually carry it around with me and when i do bring my camera bag it is the most forgotten on of the bunch :( i either pick-up my 40D or G9 first, then i grab my instax when i want instant photos i can give away. sorry, fisheye.
i do love film even though it doesnt have that instant gratification/result like digital or instant cameras have. theres something about the surprise element about film. i dont know exactly what im gonna get so i try to make it count. i think im going to invest in a film camera in the (near/distant) future. i think its going to teach me a few things about photography that a dSLR cant.
for now, here are some photos from that roll of film.
|sunset over paradise|
|i lived in the philippines for 16 years and i only managed to make it to boracay after moving and living in a different country for 9 years.|
i guess people never really explore home until it isnt anymore. but thats another entry all together.
|i shouldnt have used flash. i think i was trying to capture the "texture" of the walked on sand.|
|my dad's first photo of 2011|
this is what it looks like in low light. pretty grainy and dark.
|my lola's (grandmother) first photo of 2011.|
and the grainy-ness continues.
|my mom's first photo of 2011.|
i also took 2 photos of my brother but both didnt make it. i wonder if it was too dark or if the world just wasnt ready to see a photo my brother cleaning.
|so ill just end with a photo of me !|
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
heres to another year of photos & other things
