I feel so old school shooting film but I love it! Here's part of a roll that I shot this week. I edited them, of course. Most of them have been cross processed in Picnik.











I'd love to hear your comments & (constructive) criticism!  Smiley

do you develop your own film??

I like that vignetting on the 4th one. Was that done with the camera, during printing?

I like them but make sure your work is strong enough so that it doesn't rely on Picnik to make it really pop. (I'm sharing from experience since I, too, have relied on cross-processing before.)

I love your pic's! I'm just starting on a new to me film camera, my father in law gave it to me now I'm working with it. I haven't developed anything yet tho.
PS. the bike tire pic is really cool!

Thanks everyone! I don't develop my own film. I wish I had a darkroom!  Cry

I thought about this exact thing while I was editing these. The colors on this roll were so crappy.  Tongue

You refer to the process as cross process at Picnik. Picniks appears to be a photo hosting and printing company. Cross processing can done at any photo lab. Shoot e-6 film (slide film like Fuji Chrome or Ektachrome) and ask the tech to process it in c-41 chemistry. They may baulk and say it ruins the chemistry but only if they are processing 25 rolls like that. One of the reason the colors are a bit off but in such a cool way is that slide film does not have anti-hailation backing like print film (that is what makes it look orange). Certain slide films are better when cross processed, many of my students get hooked on the process. (sorry to spout - 10 years of teaching photography).

Crudos for still shooting with film. I like the door handle. My medium format camera is sitting in a corner gathering dust. Too much sewing;-)

I like them, especially the last one. a lot of the time shooting film I don't edit anything, I just go with whatever happens. I did a photoshoot on film a while back for a local band, though, and ended up having to tweak contrast levels a bit, just to make sure the continuity between images was okay.

what kind of camera did you shoot 'em on?
