The street art scene in Perth has increased quite a bit. The local government has commissioned international artists to work all over the city. I usually dont like taking photos of other people’s work, so I try to take it in my own point of view. Sadly I do not know who the artists are and thus cannot give them credit. If you recognize any of the artist work please let me know. The films I used are Agfa Precisa CT, Kodak Ultramax 400 and Agfa Vista 400 & 200. All taken with the little Canonet QL17 GIII.
Although technically not my first slide film as I shot some expired tungsten film at the beginning of my film journey, seeing the results of the Agfa made me appreciate and marvel at the beautiful colour positive film gifts us with. I see nothing close to it in the digital age. So much so that I am thinking of purely shooting slide film and investing in a several more rolls of Agfa Precisa as it is affordable to buy from ebay. I also found a very good lab that does processing. Abit on the expensive side but the scans are tiffs and the processing is superb. My scans look so much more richer and clean. I hope they stay around for a long time.
Hey all. I had been posting quite a bombardment of images of my film progress lately due to excitement. I realised this pace is akin to burst shooting and decided to just take it down a notch. I shall try to filter things slowly here otherwise I’d run out of images to share lol.. It seems silly to rush posting images, as it almost defeats the purpose of shooting film. I find it’s making me shoot faster as I would just want to get it develop and scanned ASAP.
I have been a little spoiled getting 5 rolls developed in less than a month. This not very economical especially when one does not process nor scan his fim yet. I’ll try to write more stuff on my experiences while shooting rather than just the scans as I feel the process of searching for the “shot” is overlooked (That moment you felt there was a potential in the scene you were looking at and had this itch to capture). I find this has the tendency of reducing images into mere adjectives especially on image sharing sites. I am glad to have discovered that in my short time blogging about my film foray, a dialogue exists between bloggers/photographers. The overwhelming positive response/ support and discussions I have had so far had been terrific. There is a wealth of knowledge out there and you all have been very kind to share 🙂 Thank you!
