My husband Joe and I took a day trip over to Bainbridge Island on the ferry last Sunday. We drove from Bainbridge over to Port Ludlow, then up to Kingston to hop onto the ferry to Edmonds. Joe shot with our old Minolta SRT 201 that we bought for about $20 a few years ago. It has a great Rokkor lens (50mm 1.7) on it that is so creamy looking. He used Kodak Ultra Max 200. All shots were developed at Panda Photo Lab in Seattle.
Also on a side note: I made a big mistake that I should tell you about so you don’t make the same one. After Joe shot his entire roll I foolishly said “let me rewind it for you” thinking I remembered how to rewind film on this particular camera. I forgot one major step. Hit the film release button on the bottom of the camera. duh ! Well instead I just started rewinding it. It felt a little tight but I just powered on through until I heard a big rip. Oh crap ! So then I did another dumb thing. Opened the back of the camera. Sure enough I had ripped the last two frames. This also caused some light leaks (which i actually don’t mind on some frames). Luckily the lab in our neighborhood could take the film safely out of the camera in a dark bag and were able to save most of the shots, besides the ones i ripped. But oh boy was Joe mad. I had to hear about it all the way home.
Photo by Joe: Minolta Srt 201 – Kodak Ultra Max – metered with iPhone app Pocket Light Meter, and developed and scanned at Panda Lab in Seattle. I believe this was shot at f5 1/500th. The pocket meter app is always a little off. It wanted him to set the shutter speed at 1/2000th but thank goodness he didn’t listen to it as this image is even a little too underexposed for my taste. Still a cool shot though. I got my new Sekonic L358 in the mail this morning. Can’t wait to use it !
This film has a nice warm tone to it. f2 1/500th
Hanging out at Port Ludlow with our dog Gia.
Loving these deep forest greens and creamy bokeh. These are all original scans. no enhancing done.
Above image: you can see the light leak from when I opened the back of the camera. I kind of like the effect here.
Gia is such a ham, Im in the background trying to “act natural” #failing
That’s Joe F1.7 1/100th
I love marinas and boats.
Next I will post the shots I took on this trip with a different camera and film.
