It’s been an exciting week for me. Each roll that was uploaded to my Google Drive by the film lab never fails to surprise me.
On the 13th Feb decided to try doing a roll on fuji superia 200, a relatively budget film that works very well on Asian skin tones.
I went to the same temple and did the shots with miss woh yon, a pharmacist friend I met few years back when she did freelancing modeling.
The joy of shooting film is in the sum of its experience. The uncertainty of each exposure I took given the limitation of 1/1000 max shutter on broad daylight and the challenging indoor ambiance.
I shot everything manual.
The analogue tones are just so beautiful. I actually tried duplicating these tones on vsco two months back by selecting Superia, utterly time consuming and disappointing. There is just no way to get the same feel.
The shot above is a bonus to me. It was pretty dim inside and I shot it at 1/15 and expected the results to be blurred or shaky. Maybe the cloth shutter on Leica M7 is more than meet the eye.
Feel free to ask me anything if you would like to try film. It’s not a superior medium by any means and I totally don’t recommend it for product or commercial studio works.
But… if ur feeling an artist block and you need inspiration. There is no better route. Trust me.
