  1. Roll 2 & 3

    March 15, 2018 by Daniel

    OK, two more rolls.

    Roll 2 didn’t go well. I have no idea why, I was incredibly disappointed with it. But I just got back roll 3 and I’m hooked again. I’m wondering whether this batch of colour 400 iso I have is bad or something (or I have figured out loading/unloading the film better now?)


    In the end only got 2 shots from roll 2, the colour one here being the only usable one. 11 came back from the Black & White Ilford film I got. I’ve got another roll but in a lower ISO so I’ve bought a flash because George’s party is coming up and I reckon it’d be needed for indoors.

    I’ve got one more roll of the colour film, I’m not holding high hopes for it but I’ll try it out anyways. Perhaps I’ll just go for a walk and take some landscapes with it.


    Still, i’ll eke these ones out over on Instagram. Roll 3 was taken over a visit back to my parents last weekend. We went to the Space Centre and Sudbury Hall. There’s more detailed notes about them on my flickr feed.

  2. Roll 1

    March 8, 2018 by Daniel

    I got the roll back.

    I’m eking them out over on Instagram, but here’s the 9 together that I got back (of, I thought, 12 shots) on the 120 roll of film. I got sent the link to download these a couple of days ago and then yesterday received the prints I ordered. I think they may have tweaked the scans a little bit for me, the prints were really dark and so I think I’ve learnt that I need waaay more light, or to go and buy the Flash unit for my Diana camera.

    I really don’t know what happened with the rainbow effect. How that came to be! It does make them look atmospheric and you know what I don’t think I mind that much that the sibjects are that bit harder to make out. Makes it much more impressionistic.

    The one that came out best quality wise is the bottom right, outside the crematorium after the remembrance service for Mamgu. It was a cold day but the sun came out and was quite bright.

    I have no idea what happened to the shot I took of my friend James on his own outside Town Hall, or the one with Hannah & Nick and their friends Jamie & Mark in the Ohh Deer shop.

    I just got an email that the processing company has received my second roll. So a little bit more waiting to see that one. Lot’s more George & Florence shots on that but again I worry they will be too dark, lessons learned from roll 1 not sunk in yet as I hadn’t seen those images yet.


    I’ve been reading up on what my next digital camera might be. I’d like something I can share lenses with though.
