The Darkroom finished developing and scanning my Roll In A Day film roll two days ago. I just barely pulled the files from their site and uploaded them to my Flickr photostream last night before the designated deadline.
It was a fun project and I tried two kind of new things out for the day:
- I only took one shot per subject. (Normally I "work" the subject with multiple compositions and I often bracket exposures.)
- I used color conversion filters to try to correct for the color temperature of the predominant light source.
Check my whole roll out in my Roll in a day March 24th 2012 Flickr set.
I think I may have overdone it on the one-shot-per-subject goal as I didn't even complete the roll of 36 exposures. I barely managed over 20 shots that day.
However, it was thrilling to be very selective in what I shot, when I shot it, and then move on once done. I think I need to practice restraint like this some more, it certainly saves some film!
And using the filters was fun. I rarely try to shoot color in incandescent or mixed lighting (or bother with the filtration) but I was very happy with the results here.
Looks like the next Roll In A Day event is scheduled for April 21st 2012. I am looking forward to it, and will have to try some other camera/film/technique this time around.
