These are the images produced by loading a second roll of film into my 35mm SLR. I went into my backyard, where I’ve planted a few flowers, and captured (interesting way to say that, “capture”) some of them. I kept the exposure needle slightly below center because Wal-Mart gave me over-exposed scans (as explained on my first roll set), but that seemed to give me pictures I can still enjoy.
It’s nice to see colour on film. Although, my next experiment will involve B&W. Some of the flowers surprised me because I don’t remember planting them. I plant stuff at the beginning of the season and then just leave it to grow. It’s amazing that it turns out so nice. I think I need to do some repairs to the pavilion though.
These pictures were shot on Kodak Ultramax ISO 400 35mm film with a Pentax K1000 using a Pentax-A 50mm f/1.7 for the most part and a Pentax-M 28mm f/2.8 for two shots. Then they were scanned onto a computer using the CanoScan 9000f MK II. There were slight adjustments made using Canon’s Digital Photo Professional software.
