I hate – HATE – mornings. However, once in a while there are reasons to love – LOVE – mornings…like a winter sunrise, on the beach. Weather was cold – but not unbearable, although fingers lost sensation and it took me several hours to warm back up, it was a beautiful day to be outside. Even though there were some clouds, it’s still great to see the light creating shadows and golden hues painting everything it touches. Pretty amazing…a few photos below.
Some photos were taken with a Canon 60D, and others with Nikon Coolpix P7700. Taken in Atlantic City, NJ.
Most shots are straight out of the camera.
Took a while to get developed, but here are some shots from one roll of Kodak Portra 400 shot on a Minolta x-700. For the last few shots taken at Penn’s Landing on a very cloudy day, I used the on camera meter and then overexposed by one stop. As fun as it is to be working with film, it’s frustrating to not see what you’re getting right away. I try to keep some basic photography rules in the back of my mind, but still…I don’t know exposures off the top of my head so I’m always wondering “will this shot come out the way I see and envision it?” Guess why all I keep reading when it comes to film is, “practice and see for yourself!” At least these came out better than my last roll!
Next few shots are from earlier in May at Penn’s Landing, Philadelphia, PA.
