It makes me moderately crazy that I'm uploading this way, that is, I had two rolls of film processed and I'm not posting the first (oldest) one first, BUT I am just DYING to share my giddiness over Ektar.
I have shot Ektar plenty before, it was my very first 120 film (remember way back last Christmas when I'd asked for film and specified Ektar but what I got was 120 and I didn't own a medium format camera, so I BOUGHT one just to shoot this film? yeah), but this roll just blows me away. It might be because I am still learning the perfect scanning method, or I am slowly becoming proficient shooting with a TLR, or both. Either way, after this roll I am prepared to state that everyone should buy a medium format camera just so they can shoot this beautiful film. THAT'S how excited I am about it. I just won't mention that I'm slightly afraid I may not be able to get my hands on it in the future. Better buy now!
I came close to shooting this whole roll on Sunday at Evin's grandma's house. 12 photos in a roll and I STILL can't finish one in a day. There are other photos from the weekend, but they're on the preceding roll of film, which will probably be uploaded next week. Lots of photos of my dog.
- Morning walk at the farm=golden everything. I was more or less freaking out.
- My two favorite boys up ahead on the path.
- More golden stuff. This photo makes me so GIDDY. There is NO grain! It's focused exactly how I wanted (sometimes this is harder than I expect)! Ugh I want to have it printed big just so I can stare at the details.
- My fabulous fiancé pulled over so I could hop out and take this photo, even though it was directly in front of someone's house. He gets me :)
- This one makes me giddy too. A corner of Evin's grandma's home, with the tea pot and plants and Ball jars. I think it was taken at 1/30 or 1/15 sec and I am so glad it's sharp!
- Straight out of the garden. Evin wasn't very happy at how long he had to hold his arm out like that for me to get the picture set up...
- Cosmos growing crazy at a gas station
- Finley was laying with his head on the ground, all sweet, and the orange morning sun was lighting his fur, so I set up the shot (on some books) and set the self timer so I wouldn't jar the camera pressing the shutter. The ticking noise of the timer made him pick his head up and look quizzically at me. D'oh.
- Nature dog :) This was going to be just a shot of a mushroom, but Finley joined in and I was ok with it.
- Signs of the season. A little camera shake :/
- Handsome dog in the driveway (finishing up the roll so I could drop it off already!)
