Seattle Film Works (A Film Post) | Baltimore Film Photographer

Shooting film sometimes sucks.

Why? - do you ask? Because it's a total crap shoot at times. 

Yes, there's the anticipation of waiting for your negatives to be developed - to have them delivered and then utter elation...or disappointment. You never know! In this case, I'm a little on the fence. I don't hate them but wish I would have overexposed them a little more than I did. :(

In my film mama group, we tested an expired 35mm film by Seattle Film Works. From what I've seen, it offers punchy, vibrant colors with surprising color shifts. My rolls, ASA/ISO 200, ran more on the green side and a little grainy. What is grain? Grain are the "dots" or "grains" that comprise a scanned image. Digital camera users would most recognize this term as "noise".

Granted, they're not works of art but I enjoy the process - the shooting and reveal of what I've shot.

TECH SPECS: The images below are straight out of camera (SOOC) and were shot on my Olympus OM4 with a standard 50mm f/1.8 lens. I started to make edits to them but didn't think it would be fair.

NOTE TO SELF: Don't forget to OVEREXPOSE expired film. Tsk, tsk, tsk. :)
