FALL IS OFFICIALLY HERE! I did not want to make an entry about it until I got my fresh roll of Kodak Ektar 100 back from the lab. It has been a crazy month for me, to the point that I had to ask my sister to drop off my film at the local photo lab. Hah!
Sometime last year I captured the fall season using my Olympus PEN EE2S. This year I loaded my Yashica-A with an Ektar and somehow totally forgot about it until a month later. One day, when I thought the lighting and temperature was right, I decided to go out and take photos (and get my bus pass). My Yashica-A was sitting on top of my head board, silently calling my attention.
The rest? Well, I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. Ektar definitely beats any filter out there. 🙂
I personally think that Kodak Ektar was a great film to use that day, although it could get a bit tricky! Ektar’s tones tend to be warmer, but usually leaning towards the magenta side. I shot the same film during winter time and while the reds tend to be a bit heavy, I thought it was a wonderful film and added a bit of warmth to my winter photos.
At this point the yellows and reds have faded as a lot of the trees have already lost its leaves. But I have these photos to remember what it used to look like a few weeks back.
On an unrelated note, it’s the long weekend! Unfortunately I caught a really bad cold that triggered my asthma, so I think I’m going to take it slow this weekend. Stay warm and if you celebrate thanksgiving – have a good one!
