Slide Film & Model Photo

April 10th, 2008

This is a great week to do a photo blog. There has been nothing but camera talk all week between myself and friends. I believe it was Monday night and two of my friends decided to head out to try to get some portraits. They asked if I would come along to show them some flash work–so I did. After a few suggestions, I saw a shot that I wanted to do. Heres the shot below:

Into the Dark

It only took a few minutes to get the shot. The trick to this photo was using long exposure and an external flash (Canon 430ex). I set the camera at four seconds with an f-stop of 8. This gave me enough time to run to the left of the camera and pop off some light. I only flashed once to give the model some definition but was careful to keep from ghosting. Simple enough? I think so.

The next series of photos that I’m posting are taken on slide film and have been in my film camera for a while now. By shooting with slide film and then cross processing, you get strangely over-saturated colors and color casts. You can vary the exposure + color by shooting 1 or 2 stops over exposed–raising your ISO/ASA also does a similar effect.

If you’d like to try cross processing, I’d recommend going to a Walmart or something very similar. They do a good job at processing it, and its cheap. I would not recommend going to RiteAid. They have a different setup there and sometimes their machines can’t read the film. I had a slight problem with them this time and had to take my film to another place to get prints from the negatives.
