Last few from the Olympus OM1n and expired Kodacolor 200

Some of my favourite subject matter for the last few images, Old Garages, Electricity Sub Stations, Trees, and of course Doors. Really surprised how the kodacolor performed considering it was more than 10 years out of date. I have mainly used Kodak films for colour over the years, and really miss Ektachrome.

    These are all so great, love both colors and subjects … The blue in the first photo is so beautiful…are these straight out of cam colors? And the autumn trees are so vibrant in sunlight… These would look so beautiful with snow on them too 😊 no snow yet in your part of the planet?

      Hello Alexandra, thank you :>). I was using a polarising filter for most of them, and then auto levels and a linear curve in PhotoShop. I try and scan the negatives in as near to neutral as I can.

        analogue photography is such a mystery 🙂 I can’t remember if I have asked you, do you develop your films on your own? I’ve always wanted to try using a filter, ND or polarizer, or even one of those colored ones… hopefully some day 🙂

        Hello Alexandra, I develop my Black & White films but use a shop or photolab for the colour films. Your photo’s look good without filters. An ND filter could be interesting, keep meaning to try one myself. You could try a disposable film camera if you can get one where you are, not very good lenses but you may like the look. :>)

        hi there 🙂 honestly, I had to google disposable camera… I had no idea there is such a thing (blush)… I don’t think we have such cameras here, but I find your idea absolutely fascinating and I may actually try to get a disposable camera via Amazon… quite fascinating concept, to take shots that you cannot repeat really… you totally now set my imaginaton on fire lol 🙂 thank you 🙂 btw, have you used a disposable camera and what brand would you recommend?

        Hello Alexandra, I have used them many years ago, Kodak I think with colour film. Ilford do 2 Black & White versions, normally you get prints back , not sure if you can get a digital scan at the same time as the prints. :>)
