First Shot at Film

February 4, 2019


American Southwest & Carmel

After spending so much time emulating film in Lightroom, I finally tried shooting real film over winter break. Although some of the photos ended up being too overexposed/blurry, there were some that I’m really happy with! Of course, there’s a lot of room for improvement and I’m still learning how to meter. Richard Photo Lab, the company I decided to develop my film at (because I’ve heard so many good things about them and they did not disappoint!), was really helpful and sends a photo report with each order that tells you some potential problems with your film and describes what happened and how to correct for it next time.

Here’s to shooting more film and venturing into medium format as well!
