The weekend is upon us again. Soon it will be too hot and uncomfortable to be outside photographing so we’ve been making good use of the somewhat cooler temperatures. We’re trying to get ahead so that we have enough film to keep us in the darkroom when it gets really hot.
Wednesday found us at Princess Place Preserve in Flagler County. A couple of friends came along and took some digital images of us shooting film which we thought you’d like to see. You’ll notice from these shots that we weren’t out in the wilds of Florida. Instead there are concrete walking paths. We still go prepared though, as we do often meander off the path and will end up standing in a area of palmetto bushes which snakes just love to hide in.
This was the image Marks was getting ready to shoot. His camera has a waist level view finder which I find more difficult to use. He also has a #25 red filter on his lens which makes for interesting viewing through the view finder. For the black and white film image, it really darkens the leaves and accentuates the clouds. My camera has a diopter type view finder which I can adjust for my vision when I’m wearing contact lenses.
Thanks to our friends for taking these for us. A great memento to have, share and keep. We have a bunch more which will be posted at a later date.
Have a great day and enjoy the weekend. 😉 Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. 🙂
