“The 127 is blank.”
“All 120 rolls are blank.”
“120 is blank. Did you have the slide in?”
“4 of the 35mm rolls are extremely underexposed. It’s very grainy.”
“If you want to shoot 3200, we recommend telling the camera it is 1600, over expose by 1-2 stops depending on where your 18% gray is and if your subject has light or dark skin, then tell us to process normal.”
I’ve gone through about 20 rolls of film now. One, just one roll, has turned out with several decent images. My digital thinking mind does not compute how these images came out so awesome when they were shot in camera 2 stops over. It doesn’t make any sense to me. And after getting all the above feedback many times, with hardly anything to show for my attempts and money invested, I was going to give up.
Until my logo came out perfect and my trademark was approved…..
Well now, I had to keep going, experimenting, hold back disappointment while waiting for the scans, keeping all fingers and toes crossed when opening up the folders of files sent. Eventually it will be more consistent. I am so thank to all of those new parents who have allowed me to practice with their family and newbowns.
