Most of them shot in HK, a few of the colour ones shot during my ringmeet trip this summer (although I didn't get good shots during the meet itself).
With my trusty old Oly O-M2 and some Kodak Tri-X 400:
Olympus XA with Kodak Portra 400:
XA with Fuji Pro 400 (JDM film YO!):
I've been trying all kinds of films, to see what I like. I really love the look of Tri-X, and the colours of the Fuji are awesome.
I think I haven't used Portra the way it's meant to be used though, or the scans aren't good, the images have a very pronounced green hue that I'm not in love with. It cleans up ok on the computer (I only posted the originals), but if I have to process it on the computer, it kinds of defeats the purpose of shooting film to me.
Yes, I bought a Canon TLb about 2 years ago and shot 4 rolls of film with it.
First one came out good. It was a nice experience.
Second one came out overexposed because the contact for the light meter was faulty and I kept trying to compensate. :lol:
Third and fourth one came out with nothing because I fucked up film loading.
Meanwhile, a friend sent me some assorted films with differents ISOs and I bought a few B&W ones too, so I am still trying out different things but I am liking the experience. I just wish it wasn't so damn hard and expensive to get it developed.
You guys ever had a phase when you feel nothing you shoot is worth saving?
I am not one to try to fix things buying more gear, and lately I've been looking at the pictures I take and I go "nope...nope...crap...blagh...nope..." And I end up deleting 200-300 pictures without even editing them...
Well, it's not uncommon for me to take 1200 images and only end up editing 30 or less. I don't have a very good imagination when I'm on scene. So I take many angles. Then, once I get to my computer, I decide what I think is pretty good.
OK so simple question: Am I foolish for wanting a 1X-300mm lens?
Reviews have led me from the Nikkor 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G to the Sigma 18-300mm Macro and to the Tamron 16-300mm Macro. The general opinion is that they are optically very similar (not great apparently) so the one with the most features and cheapest price wins.
Since getting a DSLR I've had an 18-5Xmm lens and my 55-200mm lens, I now want something with a longer focal length but want to lose the lens swapping.
