My first roll of color negative film – Fuji Superia 200
Just got my first roll of film back from the lab. Really feel good to look at these photos. It’s been 12 years since the last time I shot on film. The result is not bad although I wasn’t quite confident at the time I took these shots. They were all shot on Fuji Superia 200 with Canon AE-1 (a SLR that I bought it from a used camera reseller – Film Fancy not to long ago). All these photos are straight from the scan without any touch up or editing. This roll of film was developed and scanned by Colordotcom Photo Lab.
I went on a film walk in Melaka with some of my photography buddies. The trip was a brief one but it had already layered the foundation of my interest on keeping shooting on film. And I did. I started to include film photography into some of wedding assignments.
Shooting on film is really a whole different experience to me after being a fulltime photographer with my DSLR for 7 years. It doesn’t mean that I had not shot on film before this. Just that I wasn’t taking photography seriously then. As far as I can remember my first time shooting on film was when I was 12 years old on a high school graduation trip. I wished that I still have those shots that I took that time, but it seems they are no way to be traced after times and times of moving and relocating. ^^
So, here are some of the shots I have taken on Fuji Superia 200. Some were taken on the film walk in Melaka, some were taken for my wife and my kids, some were taken for my wedding couple. During the film walk in Melaka, I had taken some shots on black and white film too. And I am sharing them here as well.
Now, planning for my next film walk session… ^^
