Film scanning prices have soared (from 75php to 200php, wtf!) and it bums me out. I should really shoot more black and white film, and digitize with a dslr, or set up a darkroom and print directly to eliminate the need for high-cost scans.
Or you know, just shoot purely digital?
But hmm nahhh I love film too much

Belated happy birthday to this little guy! He’s four now, but these were taken 2 years ago. He’s gotten a lot better at smiling at the camera since then; staying put, not so much. I’m looking forward to playing with him again!
Posting this as a reminder to let the light in, always.
You’ve got this. You are enough, and you are going to be okay.
Starting the love month by posting this picture taken with my dream camera – a Pentax 67! Nat Bucag was kind enough to let me borrow the cam and lug it around. This is my favorite shot from a roll of Portra 160:
Gaaah I’m in love!!! My heart skipped a beat when I saw the scan. Here’s to hoping that the universe would conspire and I could get my own Pentax soon!
I just had a cup of coffee and while feeling psyched I went on a blog-hopping spree and got super inspired (and crazy jealous) by this travel blog so I just had to post something on mine.
This is around a 45-minute exposure. The lovely thing about film and my Canon FTb (no batteries required, and with a mirror lock-up feature) is that I can leave it and it does its job. No need for stacking images on Photoshop!!
The yellowish patch at the bottom right corner is a cloud-covered moonset; also I think I was pointing at Orion here? The three lines of nearly identical thickness a quarter from the left is the belt. Haha I suck at giving directions. The thick line in the middle on the left is Rigel. Ah what the hell, let’s bust out Stellarium for a clearer reference:
After fiddling with the date and time arrows, the Stellarium image matched up with mine. Now I have an idea when exactly I took the photo. I don’t remember the moon to be a thin, waxing crescent, but there you go! Astronomy is fun you guys!! 🙂
