Those of you that know me or follow me on twitter (@givemeabiscuit) will know I am a big fan of slide film, with Velvia 50 a personal favourite of mine.
Thus there was no way I was going to Malta and not shoot a roll of this lovely film. This time however I wanted to try something different and practise long exposure. Thus I also had with my Lee Filters (10stop ND & 0.6 soft grad).
I tried some daytime long exposures with both filters and some at dusk with the soft grad.
When writing these blogs I always like to ensure I share both what works and what does not work. It helps me clarify in my mind how/what to do better next time and hopefully provides you with some insight also.
So here come the images.
Some normal exposure, (but I still over exposed!)
And daytime long exposure. Lesson one get the framing right next time, lesson 2 if shooting into the sun, either don’t or at least have a the lens hood and lesson three read up on exposure techniques for this film more thoroughly
And in case you are wondering what total over exposure looks like, it is a completely clear slide that scans like below
There are some slides the lab did not scan (understandably) but I can see something is there, so will get them rescanned and check them out.
In conclusion, I really really ballsed up the roll of film.
