First Look

The first rolls of film that I shot with in Stanstead, Quebec were 35mm. This is not the actual format that I will be using for this project but I thought it would be best to start off with as I explored the space for the first time. As I ventured about I comfortably fell into a zone which helped me to see and develop a sense of direction and at the same time discover interesting spaces that later on guided me into a nice forward flow.

I knew that I would be chancing it by using the Canon Super Sure Shot AF35ML camera with an expired  roll of Fuji Superia 200 but I was not too worried about it. Out of  24 exposures I got a total of 4 images that were usable which includes the cover image of this journal entry.

Most of the images were out of focus, perhaps I need more practice time with this camera as I have not yet gotten use to the automatic focus zones that the camera preselects for you as you compose a scene.


The second roll of fill that I used was the Bergger Pancro 400 that was gifted to me by a friend of mine, Alex. I had reservations about only using the Canon Super Sure Shot AF35ML camera for my first time venture on the land so I loaded up the Minolta X-700 camera for this set.



The last film I used was Kodak’s Ektachrome E100. I have not scanned the negatives yet but plan to get to it, hopefully, by the end of the week.
