Been playing around with film scanning way too much today. It’s been ridiculously hard trying to get truer colours and tonal value out of negatives than I thought - especially without knowing quite what the outcome is supposed to look like. I’m definitely on the lookout for a pro-lab who I can send my colour film to for processing and scanning. I’ll probably keep developing and scanning black and white film on my own. With enough practice I think I can get efficient enough to get consistent results. Definitely not with colour, though!
This is Berkley and I. I took a photograph of her, and then I thought she might want to take a picture too, so we set up the same shot from memory and I told her what frame lines to look for. I think we did a damn fine job without the use of a tripod. The colour seems to be reasonable in these shots, but still, I have a lot of learning to do when it comes to film processing and it’s characteristics.

Yesterday was my 21st and it was crazy. Good times! I’m lucky to have awesome people in my life. Started out at Smiths, ended up at 90’s night, and then crossed the street to a friends apartment and hung out on the roof until 5:30AM.
I had a crazy night last night, that started with a family Birthday celebration. This is my Twin, Tynan. It’s not our birthday until Monday, but we did the family thing yesterday because she’ll be in Vancouver on monday with her Boyfriend - who is coincidentally ALSO born on January 21st - and because we wanted to include the arrival of my Grandfather back into Canada. That’s where the night started - I’ll tell you more about it soon. This was a selfie with a 35mm f/1.4 (which is surprisingly hard to do).
