This is a sample from my personal photographic archive, posted as one of over a thousand examples of my photography here on EMULSIVE. While occasionally pretty to look at, these photographs mostly serve to show some of what’s possible with film photography.

  1. So what’s the difference between these 2 shots? Did you meter them differently and, if so, how? Or did you take your initial meter reading and purposely underexpose the second shot by 2 stops? I’m curious because, at least to my untrained eye, the highlights in the background don’t really look that different to me. Thanks.
