I'm a 24 year-old indie filmmaker who loves to talk about film, music and things in that nature. I'm also an amateur photographer. I love film. Favs: Truffaut, Spielberg and Van Sant; My Bloody Valentine, The Velvet Underground and Sonic Youth. I also started interning at B-Real TV as an editor. It's going well! Feel free to browse around!
I picked up my prints on Thursday and they looked great. I love the way came out. There were a couple on the roll that were black and very underexposed. No worries. I can’t wait to make digital copies. Half of them were of both days of FYF. The rest was after that pretty chill weekend. I was amazed on how the film picked up the artificial lighting. It looks fuckin’ beautiful it gives it a very soft and diffused look. It almost looks photoshopped. I’m definitely sticking with Ilford for my B/W photos. Before I can really make that decision, I have compare some of those prints with my Kodak B/W and see the differences as far as how it handles artificial lights. I have always dug Ilford, though. There are some favorites in the roll. There are some I can’t believe they came out great and from a point-and-shoot camera. One in particular is picture of Rachel of Slowdive on the jumbo-tron. It came out great. Another is picture I took during Phoenix’ set on day 1. It was behind the camera operators’ spot. I loved how the light hits the people, creating a very dark shadow on the people watching. It’s like if ghosts were watching the show. I do hope to make the prints tomorrow if I get paid for my video gig. Rather than explaining it by words, I’ll explain it through the pictures. I’m very excited. I hope to get paid.
