I’ve had a roll of film in my Konica C35MF for months but gray winter days kept the camera on my shelves. When I picked it up again a couple of weeks ago, the battery was waning and turned two pictures into accidental double exposures. That’s our resident puppy (that belongs to my housemate), Mimi, and the view from my work table.

I keep changing my mind about my favorite kind of film: in the beginning I was really into the pastel hues of ISO100 film but then I realized I use my cameras indoors so much that I had to start using higher speed film. For a while I enjoyed the true-to-life colors represented by Lomography CN 400 and Paradies Action 400 tremendously but then some pictures turned out too true-to-life that they don’t look too different from digital images at all.
These were taken on the same day as my funny, swirly ones on the Superheadz UWS at the park and I’m still not sure how I feel about them. One of my favorite things about film photography is that dreamy quality with which light and colors are captured in the most unpredictable way and that quality just seem to be missing in these. I’ve been working with lots of lower speed films (Fuji, Agfa and Ferrania Solaris), trying to figure out the best ways to utilize different films for the different moods I hope to capture. It has been mostly trial-and-error so far; I love that I never stop learning new things when it comes to film photography.
