the last selection of images from this roll of film. this is my first time using a black&white roll of film, i enjoyed experimenting with it in all sorts of light. i shot in normal light, sunny days, the golden hour, just before dusk, and the lucky 100 has performed phenomenally in all conditions. in bright sunlight, the image seems to 'glow' slightly (eg. the left image of the second picture), which is an effect that reminds me of solaris film. and as you all know, i adore my solaris. even when an area isn't very well-lit or with fading light, the film still managed to capture the image (eg. the swings, the bicycle and this pictures). it provides a lot of grey tones as well, giving the images a softer and old-time look. it's also fairly grainy, which i personally don't mind, i think it adds to the old-fashion feel.
roll 4, golden half, lucky 100
p/s: i am wearing my new jumpsuit today and i feel so glam! ♥
lauren carney - thank you so much! i hope you will come back and visit.
ida - hi ida! yep, i know you have one! i read through loads of your blog's archives and i saw it. oops! this is just showing how much of a blog stalker i am! hee! but you have to use your golden half more often, i love your pictures!
chubskulit - thank you for following, you guys mean the world to me!
rhianne - you better get one soon! but i am curious, does england have the same drinks like in singapore? i know the us have more options. i wish i could drink those lattes in cold cold weather, it would feel so much more christmassy.
hello everybody, how's your weekend so far? i had a full full saturday. i woke up really early at 8am (i am a terrible slob, i usually wake up at 11am on weekends) for breakfast with my good friend. after, i met other friends for a full afternoon of shopping. i came away with a pair of grey wedges and a black jumpsuit, things i wouldn't normally wear or buy so that's really exciting for me. i am flat out on my bed right now, catching up with everybody's blogs and planning my posts for the week ahead.
i didn't have a shadow until yesterday when i went for my office's happy hour. it had a retro theme and we got to play with games of yore. i zero-ed in for the bubbles. it's not a regular bubble but a gummy substance you can wind around a straw and then blow it up into a huge bubble. i placed it down in a patch of sunlight and unwittingly got my shadow shot sunday!
i have a new shadow to share! this is my current favourite shadow shot. i noticed that the road barriers along the road i was walking along were making all this fantastic shapes where there the light shone through and i just had to stop and snap them. it looks more like a poster, doesn't it? It's a shadow, I swear!
If you have a shadow to share, go on to Harriet's blog to join in the fun! Happy Sunday, everybody!
consciously chose to shoot people with my golden half. i like to have themes when i shoot on my golden half so that i can have some sort of a narrative with all the half-frames. but of course, i will still be given to randoms because themes be damned when there's something interesting to shoot!
comparing this roll of pictures with the ones shot on the fuji reala, these are so much more vibrant. i really love the golden glow that the solaris film brings to all my shots.
