Earlier this morning, I scanned two rolls of 35mm film I shot back in July and August. I still have more to scan but thought I would share these pics made with my good old Pentax (sadly the Hasselblad is away for repairs—fingers crossed it gets unstuck).
All the photos were taken close to water—ocean, pool, river, even though you don’t see evidence of it in each frame.
With slide film, I usually underexpose it slightly since there is little wiggle room (about 1/3 of a stop). However, I pushed (overexposed) the beach shots and I like the blown out white sky and purple/magenta color shift.
The film was expired as well which created the color cast.
I constantly work to see things differently and to challenge my own aesthetic. To intentionally break free from technically good negatives (or positives in this case) and articulate a specific vision.
Like being submerged in summer.
