The past stays in the past.

3:24 AM

Finally developed and collected the 4 rolls of film which I've taken over the past couple of months, dating all the way back from September till now. Honestly, I wouldn't exactly say that I'm disappointed with the results. Some rolls were horrendous, some were more than just satisfactory. But hey there's some significant improvement from my very first roll (which turned out totally underexposed if you must know).

Just sharing some of the few better shots I've got ever since I took an interest in film photography. I use a Superheadz silm camera (best birthday gift from Zhiyi ever) and Olympus Trip 35 (best thrifted item ever) interchangeably.

Using Ektachrome E200. Probably my 2nd or 3rd roll since venturing into film.

Provia 100F (expired), while at Bintan. Probably my favourite slides yet.

And here's the beach pictures from last Friday using either Superia 400 or Provia 100F.

I guess I kinda found a couple of slides and negatives that I love. It was a bomb though, the price of the films and the developing costs. I easily dumped 60 bucks on 4 rolls.

Even so, I don't think I'll be stopping anytime soon. Well, maybe till the day I'm dead broke (it's imminent, given the rate I'm splurging this holidays). But otherwise, I can't wait try out my new slides heheh. I still got ways to go, and lots of room for improvement.

If you've tried film before and failed miserably on your first few rolls, don't be disheartened. Really, practice makes perfect. Not that I know of anyone close to me that shoots film, with the exception of Zhiyi, but yeah... Well whatever.

I bought myself an early birthday gift today. It seems like I jumped on the bandwagon due to the influence of my fellow friends who decides to pamper themselves on their very special day because they "deserve" it. Like whut LOL.
But anyway, I got two new camera lens - one of them from myself, and the other from my dad (i love him to bits, really).
My heart hurts knowing I spent so much today just on photography, but I'd like to think that this is a worthwhile investment. Can't wait to explore with them too.

So much to do and yet the holidays are coming to an end soon. Sigh.
