Roll Number 4

Today I went to the lab to collect my negatives and scanned images. Since starting photographing with film, I have numbered them accordingly every time I finished a roll. So this blog post is about roll number 4, which is the Kodak Ultramax 400, expired in 2009. Half of the exposures at ISO320 (the picture above) and the other half at ISO250 (the picture below), just to see the differences in the picture quality. Maybe I’m not experienced enough; I can’t tell the differences between them as the grain level is about the same.

As you can see here, both images were posted straight from the scanned copy without any adjustment, crop or manipulation. 

I don’t really like the colour tone of this film, probably because it was expired. I have another two exposed rolls of Kodak Ultramax 400 which were not expired, and I just need to process it to see the differences. I have since decided to stick to the Fujifilm Superia X-Tra 400 for my ongoing project as it is cheaper and accessible on a long term basis.

In this roll of 36 exposures, I’m glad that three images turn out well and could fit into my ongoing series. Currently, I have two projects that I’m working on, so I’m giving myself more diversity while shooting on the street. But since I have decided to stick to the Fujifilm for all my projects, I will see how the difference in colour tone turns out at the end of the project before deciding to keep or throw it out.

So where do I keep my negatives? Into a shoebox, that’s where it goes!
