New Semester Pt. 1

Starting off with a few negs from the Feringghi roll, and yes, another bathroom-mirror shot :)

One reason for not waking up early?  Boring tv shows.

Had an interesting conversation with this man, we talked about sewers and mutated fish..

Changlun, Kedah.

Meeting with Adit, Ghazi and Acap to discuss ideas for our FYP.  Good thing we have Adit for the creative stuff,  I'm pants at anything other than tech.

Back to classes..

Iphone 4!  Too bad I don't have the budget for one right now (plenty of other stuff I need to buy) :P

Consultations with the lecturers.  The wait is long..but still beats having 9-6 classes :)

Diafine (or rather two bath developers) at it's best.  Something like this shot on digital would result in an overexposed photo.

One frame from the day spent shooting street with Anwar, next post :)

Break Pt.3

Last frames from the diafine roll.  Some bromide drag happening here, will need to increase inversions or start using a stainless steel tank.


3200-4000 (can't remember)  Very thin, but certainly usable for scanning.

You can really see the contrast picking up from this point on, mainly because the roll is finally rated at 1250 (best speed for diafine)

Actually, there might be another part.  Still a few frames from this trip on another roll :)

Break Pt.2

Tri-X and diafine...the start of a beautiful friendship.  Speeds ranging from 400-1250..

Final part soon :)

Finally got around to scanning an older roll of Kodak Gold (back when I still had a 28mm)  Colors are a nice surprice, very saturated red/yellows..not bad for a consumer film.

Won't be commenting too much on these shots, brain is too fried right now for any flashbacks.

Grain is tight too (considering this is iso 400 film)

I'm starting to miss this lens.  Not sure if it's the focal length (28mm) or how it renders..but I'm not too happy with how the 40/1.4 performs with color film.  Hopefully the 35/1.2 Nokton will fix that, been seeing some killer shots taken with that lens..very smooth and sharp at the same time.  Simon makes wonderful use of this lens, do check his blog :)


Still can't believe we passed that subject (storyboard).  That was one crazy semester..glad I don't have to worry about classes...for now.

Each FA crit session takes away at least 2 years from your expected lifespan, it's that stressful.

Final presentation takes out 5.

Unless you're Ghazi..

..or Adit.

More MMU madness..

Hostel fire extinguisher, useful for many things except for putting out fires :)

I really don't know.

Stay tuned for another short post tomorrow..
