{IShootFilm} My First Roll of Film – Kodak Ektar 100

I got my first rolls of film back finally, having sent them away before Christmas.

I have to say, that whole process is definitely one of the fun things about film.  Not having that instant feedback, having to wait for this little surprise package of images, is extremely fun.

I sent away four rolls of film, two colour and two black and white.  One of my biggest surprises, as a lover of colour and light, is that I actually loved the black and white images much more than the colour.  The colour ones were not quite what I was expecting.  I found them quite often a bit too washed out with strange colour tones.  It is entirely possible that this is due to user error, or that I have been so ingrained in the digital era of true colour rendition that colour film will have to grow on me as an acquired taste.  However I am also going to play around with a few different colour films, with adjusting the way I expose them, and with using a different lab next time.  Hopefully I will hit upon a method of colour film photography that gels with me.

Without any further ado, this is my very first roll (almost) ever.  I shot it on Kodak Ektar 100 using my manual focus Canon AE-1 Program camera.  It’s a start but I’m definitely looking forward to experimenting with this medium some more!
