Week 21 | November 2 – 8, 2019

Sun this week. Warm? Warmer maybe. But the turning of the clocks back has pushed us into the darkness. This is where the drive to shoot starts to wane. Fall colors are still about, just not as abundant. Soon the rains will come.

Here’s some from the past week:

Nordic Heritage Museum. Ballard, Washington. November 3, 2019. Fuji x100f. Astia.

Week 19 | October 19 – 25, 2019

No film this week. Some Astia jpgs with the x100f and even an edited iPhone pick.

I struggle with the color on the x100f. I wrestle with shooting RAW and using vsco presets. But I don’t want to get bogged down with more choices, more technology.

Anyway, here’s some shots from the past week:

Loyal Heights, Washington. October 19, 2019. Fuji x100f. Acros-R.
Fremont, Washington. October 24, 2019. Fuji x100f. Acros-R.

Kodak Portra 400 | Rollei 35 S

From the same roll as the Ballard post a few days ago, these photos show how Kodak’s Portra 400 renders nature’s greens and reds.

Street Flyers 3

Some Local. Some Sicily. Everywhere people advertise and make their marks.

The yellows really help The Decent Exposure tour get their message out.

Ballard, Washington. Tuesday, August 5, 2019. I can pick t iPhone 8 Plus.

What is Freedy? Squirrel? Beaver? Legged seal?

Flowers

While there was some discussion this week about the merits of black and white over color on the 35Hunter blog, I decided to look back at some of my recent color photos. Red is particularly difficult for digital cameras. So I picked some with red. All were taken with my iPhone 8 Plus.

I prefer black and white. I don’t shoot much color. But I will say that I do like how the reds are rendered with the newer iPhones.
