Spent a recent morning at Seattle’s Gasworks Park with my Canon AE-1 Program and a roll of CineStill 50D.
It was morning, bright enough for a 50 speed film, but it was cloudy. A review did suggest the muted film was not the best performer in cloudy conditions.
My camera, however, is a stellar performer. I enjoy the 20mm f2.8 lens.
I’ll return to the venue, I’ll take the same camera, and I’ll definitely use the CineStill again.
Here’s some shots:
Going through the archives and finding some work that I want to put here.
In 2016 I traded my Nikon DSLR for a Canon AE-1 Program and 50mm lens. Loaded up with Portra and Ektar and Tri-x, I began a slow return to photography that has only recently begun to accelerate.
Here are some of my first efforts with the Ektar 100. Carkeek Park makes a pretty compelling subject any season. But the fall to winter season and then winter to spring are my favorite periods.
This is my second roll (recently) with this fabulous Ilford film. Shot with a 100mm f/2.8 lens on a Canon AE-1 Program.
A new lens (a Canon 100mm f/2.8), a roll of Ektar 100 and evening light makes for a nice setup. Two parades make great subjects.
Ektar is my favorite film. Producing color and depth that cannot be recreated in digital cameras; it’s why to shoot film. I’m not the only one that thinks this way.
Perhaps Ektar 100 is the film I’ll use when I know I want to get the colors and emotion right.
All shots with the Canon AE-1 Program.
