Fuji Superia Venus 800

I usually do very little post-editing, leaving the quality of the film to sort itself out.

But the colours can turn out to be so very different from one exposure to another.

All images here are done with my Contax TVS, with Fuji Superia Venus 800.

The above looks so lomography-ish.

I suppose lomography is point-and-shoot film photography write large.

Then you have this, which seems a bit warm.

And then this:

Greens and blues are rather saturated, with a gritty look to them.

I waited a bit for the green canvas to be spread out, and was spotted.

So I smiled and waved, trying very hard to look like a silly tourist befuddled by his camera.

Oh look – yummy lychees!

And here, the colours are muted.

I was hoping for a silhouette effect.

And then I switched off my camera, turned it on again, and forgot to de-activate the auto-flash function.

The flash went off less than 2 metres from him. He looked at my camera, and didn’t react…

 

I figured he must be deep in thought, or was he looking at something else…
