The Mother Lode (part 2)

As promised, I got my 6 rolls of film processed. It worked out to be 167 images. Unfortunately, one of the pictures I was most excited to get back didn’t make it. I guess I was trying to squeeze in too many pictures at the end of the roll or something. Anyway, in spite of not getting that shot, I did get a number of pictures that I like a lot. There are a lot of pictures of my daughter, which may not be interesting to people other than my family. However, I do also have a lot pictures that should be interesting to everyone.

I’ve learned some things from these pictures. First off, the color I get indoors using artificial lighting is not good. Second, I need to adhere better to the 1/3:2/3 rule for composing images. I have a few images where the subject is right in the middle and it doesn’t look good. Anyway, if you’re interested in sharing your impressions of my pictures, I would be interested in hearing your opinion.

Today, in addition to getting my pictures developed, I also picked up a 36-exposure roll of Velvia 100. It is apparently, the “new” Velvia, which doesn’t have as highly saturated colors as the “old” Velvia. I’m not really in a position to make a judgment either way.

The six newly developed rolls of film can be viewed here: 1 2 3 4 5 6
The whole collection of pictures I’ve taken with my Pentax K1000 can be found here.

    I’ve been meaning to comment on some particular pictures but I haven’t had a chance. A couple general comments: good work! more thought about framing/ composition (like you mentioned) is probably a good idea. Also, I’m really really happy you captured the Barnum and Baily elephant walk through Cambridge/ Boston. That’s one of my favorite things and I totally forgot about it until I saw your photos.
