Wednesday Film Musings : EMG Workshop Wk 2

Last week I posted my thoughts on my first week of the Embrace the Grain Film Workshop. Today I’m sharing a little bit about my second week.

Week 2 : Color Film

In this week the focus was on shooting and metering for C4 film. I again shot with my Canon Elan 7 and my Sigma 35mm lens. I’ve always loved the look Fuji 400H so that’s what I went with.

This week was a lot easier. I finally had my light meter!! YEAH! I went with the Sekonic Litemaster Pro L-478D. The light meter made a huge difference!

What I learned: 

  1. Canon Elan 7: I’ve been shooting digital for sometime so when I began shooting film I didn’t want to invest in an expensive body until I knew I was going to stick with it. In comes the Elan 7. Compatible with my current lenses and inexpensive. Downside, while it’s great for beginners it’s definitely not sufficient for my prime lenses. It lacks focal points and has a hard time keeping up with high end lenses. At this point, I knew I needed to upgrade! 🙂
  2. Forgiving: This film is so forgiving. It’s amazing how well it does with highlights. Overexposing Fuji 400H is expected and beautiful! Definitely a fav!
  3. Metering: Having a light meter made the biggest difference. My confidence increased and I was even more hooked!

Here are my favorite images from my color roll.
