My 35mm Film Journey - part 2

Back in August 2018 I made the decision to invest a small amount of money into a film camera. You can read about my thoughts on why and what I decided to buy in part 1 of this blog series here.

My very first outing with the F100 was up into the high reaches of the Drakensberg to capture some snowfall. I obviously took my digital camera, but also chose to take the extra weight and bring the Nikon F100 along on the hike. Before the trip, I loaded a roll of 35mm Kodak Ektar 100, and set on my way.

The images that follow below are a collection from this snow hike, all shot on film. The 35mm film was developed and scanned by RGB PixelLab in Sandton in Johannesburg, and no editing has been applied to any of the images. They are all un-cropped and unedited. The scans where done on a "flat" setting, to keep them as true to the film as possible. Obviously, during the scan the images have been inverted from the negatives.

In conclusion, I am very pleased with the results. The best moments of the hike where all shot on my digital camera, so these film images are not the best from the hike, but I am happy with the moments I captured on film, and how they came out. I hope you like them, and please comment below with any thoughts you have on these images, or on film in general.

Until next time - MD
