When I first took in my rolls of film from the Carolina Rebellion to be developed, I knew I had a stray roll somewhere and couldn't think of where it might be. But, I did run across it last week and delivered the film to Biggs Camera in Charlotte, NC to have the roll developed. The scenes here are from the first day of the metal festival. I like the top photo in particular. The film I used was Kodak Portra 400. Thanks for viewing!
I'm back at it with black and white photography. I was trying out film I've not used before, to see what is produced of course. The film was Ilford HP5 black and white and I used my Canon EOS Rebel film camera. The camera was set to P mode and the ISO bumped up to 800, allowing the camera to determine the shutter speed and aperture.
In regards to post processing the photos, I focused on adjusting the contrast, whites and lights/darks. The photos didn't have the contrast I wanted so I added to my liking. Also, the film gave me more whites due to the time of day I was making the shots. I reduced them significantly.
One of my favorite areas to make street photos is Camden Rd. in Charlotte, NC. It's a spot where many people pass by and kids skateboard. On this day I lucked out with the skateboarding activity. I used up two rolls of film within an hour giving me 72 shots to work with. Below here are more of the photos I made.
