In July the FoDo (monthly photography meetup) group decided to do a photo walk, instead of our usual critique evening/night. We started at the edge of Leipzig’s city center and kept wandering around. Some might say aimlessly. Some might say with purpose.
I took the photo walk as an opportunity to test a new lens. I’ve been using a 50mm prime for 10+ years now and the new focal length (105mm) was very strange. But wanting to photograph people is new to me as well. I’ll have to see if the 105mm is something I can/will use to take portraits, or if I’ll go back to the familiar feel of 50mm.
On top of that I’m quite new to developing color photos myself as well. The main problem area at the moment is washing the film:
Left: after first round of washing / right: after a second round of washing. Consistent scanning is still an issue as well. I guess there’s a reason why professional film labs charge that much…
