Results after first use of Kodak Portra 400 (meh)

Here are some shots I took in Florida using a Minolta X-700 and Kodak Portra 400 film.   I really need to start documenting the settings used when taking these shots so that I can tweak here and there and come out with something better than this.  I do realize that I need to work on my manual focus and familiarize myself even more with the manual settings of a camera.  I’m somewhat comfortable shooting all manual on a digital camera – but I have my screen that reassures me and if I’m off by a bit, I readjust.  I’m not sure how great the light meter is on this Minolta camera but I don’t trust quite trust it yet.  Even with that, I must say I do love the look and feel of analog photos. All photos are pretty much right out of the camera.









And these last two are my favorite, probably because of the light leaks…
