Leica M3 – Palm Beach Florida – Ektachrome 400
Black Paint Leica M3 + Kolor Film while on a trip with Meghan and my parents to Palm Beach, Florida.
Another roll of Kolor from Bermuda including the ride to and at the Dockyard. High contrast day – made for crummy contrast images. Interesting note.
Kolor is my favorite “fun” film in the 35mm format. I contacted revolog after shooting my initial order of three rolls – and ordered 50 more (major bulk discount) as I just can’t get enough of this stuff. Not sure why… since I have absolutely no control – but after seeing my New York City photos and the ones from the Eurotrip… it’s just a fun all around roll.
Over/Under exposure doesn’t seem to make as much difference as it does with Lomography films. That seems pretty constant through most of the Revolog films except for the two IR type ones (460nm and 600nm).
While in Cooperstown with the Leica M3 50mm/f2 I shot a roll of Cine 200 from Lomography. This was my first time with the film – so I wasn’t sure what sort of subjects I was looking for. Not every shot – even under the best circumstances – can be a winner. But I think that this roll – as a whole – is a winner for really putting the film and the camera through its paces. We also brought Schnapps with us on this trip – so she’s a model throughout.
You may see similar scenes taken over multiple frames – and wonder why they seem so different. You may suspect me of doing significant edits in photoshop… but you would be incorrect. The film reacts differently depending upon how you expose it. If you over expose – it tends to be more blue. If you under expose – it seems to be more yellow. If you nail it – it’s almost black and white with only purple.
I am currently selling a whole bunch of my digital or high end gear – as I am focusing on my non studio / natural light film work. However, a few of the things needed some adjustments as they weren’t quite up to where I wanted it to be.
