12 Rolls of Film | Roll 8 in August
September 15, 2014
I think this roll is most appropriate as a goodbye to summer. We had the chance to spend some time in Destin, Florida with family along the crystal clear, emerald waters. With this roll, I learned a lot about metering because I completely messed it up! I forgot about the strong reflection of the sunlight on the sand and how that would affect the images. As with most things in life, I was disappointed that what came out wasn't perfectly lit (perfectionist, anyone?!), but then I remembered that this whole project is about learning film - sometimes you just have to mess things up to get better. Thankfully, film is very forgiving and so not all is completely lost!
