* Film Is Not Dead Workshop * Part 1

Last week I posted some previews of the workshop – shots that I took from my 5D MarkII.  Today I’m going to show you some photos taken on film! I got these images back earlier than the rest of them because I got it developed at Walgreens.  You heard it right – WALGREENS!  Did you know that they still process films? While I can’t say that they did a fantastic job, they certainly did OK in my opinion.  It was a fast 1 hr turn around and they gave me a photo CD along with the negatives all for less than $8.  For the price that I paid I can’t really complain!!  Here are some of my fav images from my first roll.

All images are SOOC, shot on a Canon A-1 and a 50mm f/1.8 with manual focusing.



As you can see, the colors are a little bit more soft and desaturated than my usual digital images but I like it!  I think it works.  It was also overcast at the beach so I don’t think it’s Walgreens’ fault that the sky appeared to be a little gray.










I sent the rest my stuff to Richard Photo Lab and I won’t get those back until next week.  That means that I will be blogging more images from the workshop next week (hopefully)!  I can’t wait to get my scans/prints back from RPL!

Eliza Wong The pics look great. Most of the time, the technician chooses one picture as the reference for color and light adjustment. Thus the rest of the roll will develop by the machine using this color/light setting. I miss the manual photo develop service.
