june 2017—roll 5

I shot a lot of color in June! More than usual. This fifth roll is of Kodak Ektar in medium format, shot on a Fuji 6x7 rangefinder. A quick word about the film: It's a negative film, meaning it has to be reversed to get an image. Color negative was developed for darkroom printing, and it is much easier to use compared to transparency (or slide) film. But I'm just not that *in* to it. Slide film is hard to meter, yes, but it captures a kind of vibrancy that I don't think you can replicate with negative film or even digital for that matter. I'm happy with how these shots turned out, but I think I'm going to start phasing color negative film out of my inventory.
