Happy September my lovely readers!!!

I'm super excited to share with you some quick images of the film I just got back from the FIND Lab!!! Now, I will be honest, I ruined most of the film. I underexposed almost every image and learned that I really REALLY need a light meter!! However, I also learned a lot. It was my first time shooting professional grade film, and I discovered that the rules I had learned from shooting non-pro film didn't really apply. The main thing I learned is that the film is actually the ISO it says it is and shoots like it. So the general rule of thumb I had developed for my camera settings were entirely incorrect (for those of you who don't know, the light meters in my film cameras are all non-functioning- hence the need of a light meter). Despite the many, many underexposed (and I mean extremely underexposed- as in so badly underexposed that you can't read the image underexposed) images, there were some that turned out, and I am so pleased with them! The colors are lovely and rich and just... *insert really pleased expression here*!


All film was shot on Kodak Portra 400 on the Pentax K1000 and is unedited (other than adding the watermark).
