Autumn Is Coming

The signs are undeniable – autumn is coming. Leaves are changing, falling, the air smells different, it’s getting colder.
I took this picture on Kodacolor VR Plus 200 film that expired in August 2005 (i.e. more than 5 years ago) – and all photos turned out fine with excellent saturated colors.
Interestingly, I learnt yesterday that Kodak is currently celebrating its 125th anniversary.

If you find a roll of film that is expired – don’t throw it away, but just give it a try. The colors you get are very different from the neutral (but sometimes boring) colors you normally get with digital cameras nowadays.

Have a great weekend!


Carpe Diem!

When it comes to photography, you should seize an opportunity when it is there.
Never say to yourself you can shoot something on your way back or the next day – so many things could have changed in the meantime.
However, if you are stuck in the house due to horrible weather, you still can use the day to your advantage and come up with picture ideas like the abstract photo above for which I used 35mm black and white film (Agfa APX 100) in my analog SLR.
So, seize the day, whatever it looks like, and make the best out of it.
