test roll

Monday was a good day, the exhibition was great, sun was out and my new camera in hand I traipsed around the City to see what comes out in the developing process. I’ve saved some cheap colour film given free to me ages ago when local shops and chemists still did photo printing (remember those times?). Those old expired rolls are great for test runs for my eBay finds. :) Yes, the tint is a bit magenta, but it kind of adds to the old analogue camera charm for me, especially when I get to see the first prints.

The Canon Demi came up trumps and even the lab complimented on the photos I took that afternoon. I’m so happy with the results myself, too! I think I put a scratch through the neg winding the roll back a bit abruptly, and I will need to keep an eye on that next time around. Otherwise, above is one of my favourite photos from Monday afternoon at Fleet Street. I’m so glad to be back in half frame action, more of this goodness to follow!

    So do you take your film to be processed somewhere else, or do you develop it yourself? I never got around to learning how to develop my own film, but I still have a lot of fun with film!

    On se vaan kaunista tuo jälki! Filmiä olisi pakkasessa vaikka kuinka, kun vaan tulisi kuvattua vapaa-ajalla.. No, ehkä joskus, pakastimessahan ne säilyy vaikka eläkeikään.
