This past weekend, my girlfriend and I decided to go to a local farm in Irvine for their strawberry festival and tour. They have a collaboration with Sanrio which I think is a perfect way to attract families and educate them about fruits and vegetables that are grown here. I only knew about this from one of my cousin who took their little daughter for a day of strawberry picking which I really enjoyed doing when I was young.
This past Monday I decided to reignite my creative side by making my own camera wrist strap out of paracord. I’ve been in the market for a wrist strap for a couple months now but knew that it was not necessary when I still have my neck strap. I like to watch random camera accessories on youtube and found a couple DIY camera straps that I definitely knew I could try out on my days off. It turned out to be easy and really affordable! If you are interested in making one, I followed this video. Continue reading
Testing out the Kodak Portra 400 roll I got for Christmas.
Finally had the chance to test out the Olympus 30mm f3.5 Macro lens outside! Will be posting more photos whenever I have the opportunity to capture interesting subjects. Continue reading
Over the past month, I decided to switch it up and experiment with the Ilford Delta 400 Black and White Negative roll to see how much I would enjoy black and white. While I thoroughly enjoyed the results that came back, I didn’t like how long it took to process the roll. Samy’s Camera is my go-to place to develop my rolls and the process to develop color takes about a day while black and white they would have to ship it out to another place for processing and that takes about a week. That reason alone is why I’ll probably go back to color for now until I find another place that can process black and white a bit faster. It takes me quite a long time before I finish a roll so it would be nice if I could see the results a day or two afterward.
*On a side note, having 36 exposures on a roll is quite wonderful!! You get your money’s worth everytime you process them.
