So today I finally got the time and chance to develop the film I used during the Cosplay Genre Wars last August 7, 2010. I was very excited to see the end result of my efforts ‘cause I’ve been waiting for the right time to ask my mom to take me to a developing place. But the best part was when I saw the pictures. Out of the 3 pcs. 36 shot film that I used only 23 got developed. Some were even blurry and just plain blank. So now, I feel like I’ve put all my effort and time to nothing.
But if you’ll look at it on the brighter side, at least I learned something today.
- Always check your lighting!
- Set up flash when you’re indoors.
- Patience is a virtue.
- Perfect timing is key to great still shots.
- Use your film wisely!
- Let your subjects true beauty shine!
- Have fun!
And of course, PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE! :D
