Film on Friday 9

Snapshots from the Olympus 35 RC rangefinder, a shutter priority camera, using Kodak Ektar 100 and shot at box speed. Bad combination of camera and film for a new shooter like me. I recall taking these photographs in bright sunlight but I may have erred in one and/or all of these steps by selecting the wrong shutter speed, not setting the F/stop to Auto and then setting the aperture manually.  Nearly the whole roll looked underexposed to me. The featured image being one of the few that turned out sorta okay and the other photos I tweaked the exposure level some to my liking. I’ll definitely give the Olympus another try but perhaps with another type of film.

Photos taken in January and February of 2017.

Film on Friday 6

A special Flashback Friday Film on Friday edition. I travelled to the Eternal City this past Summer and I managed to take a similar photograph of one from 21 summers ago.

Film on Friday 3

Came across this post I had left in Draft purgatory and noticed that I had already published a Film on Friday 4.

Latest roll of film processed and scanned on Tuesday and my first from an SLR, the Olympus OM2. Overall I’m pleased with the pictures I took there were a few misfires and I made a huge mistake by rewinding my film the wrong way and then opening the film compartment. I lost the last few pictures I took at my children’s carnival. Oh well lesson learned. Lastly I’m very happy with the higher resolution scans I requested this time. Here’s a sampling of my photos, shot with Kodak Ultramax 400, with no alterations some are dark due to photographer error hopefully my skills will continue to develop and I’ll take less under exposed pictures.

Next shooter is my Olympus Pen EEs, I’m attempting to document my gear as I got them chronologically. This is a half frame camera so out of a 24 exposure roll I ended up with 48+ shots. Interesting camera because the cells around the lens determine the exposure level for the photo. I have a roll developed and scanned from this camera, next time I process film I will have to specify to the lab I’d like two shots per picture and if they could scan my negatives at a higher resolution. All pictures except those of the camera taken by the PEN EEs
