I spend a lot of time and I’ve taken hundreds of photos at Carkeek Park. A few weeks back, I tagged along with my daughters who were working on a school project and brought my Canon loaded with some CineStill 800.
800 ISO film is usually grainy. Too grainy when it’s color. But with the winter darkness coming (here) I was (am) looking for higher speed color options.
CineStill 800 might be that film. Not too grainy. Skin tones were fine. The yellows glowed a bit (in a good way).
Climate change? Days have been so bright my Norwegian clock thinks it’s summer time. The cold doesn’t lie. Snow reports and 4:30 sunsets bring me back to time.
On Thanksgiving weekend, I wandered over to Volunteer Park. Once or twice a year I’ll visit the Conservatory. The grounds have numerous old trees. The water tower is over 100 years old now. I remember visiting it when I was in preschool.
The following were all shot with the x100f using in camera presets. Post processed jpegs with minor edits. Usually some cropping. I like square images.
On November 15, 2019 I took a there and back trip from Seattle to Ellensburg. Weather is early pre-snow winter or late fall, I don’t know. But I grabbed the x100f with the preset JPEG for black and white documentary style photography (see recipe below) and got some pleasing, moody shots.
It’s the Darcy Padilla theme created by Kevin Mullins mentioned in a previous post.
