Some time ago I wrote about my new approach to this hobby, (black and white) film photography! As part of my film photography ambitions, I of course tried to take black and white photos of noctilucent clouds, a phenomena that I find especially interesting and fascinating!
I observed a display of noctilucent clouds between 18th and 19th of July 2018 in Ulvila, Finland. This was a beautiful and bright display, and I was able to take good b&w -photos of this display. I developed the film by myself and scanned it for publishing in the blog.
My scanner converts the negatives to positives automatically, but after scanning I tried to convert one of the photos back to negative to see, how NLCs are visible in negative photo.
When looking the negative photo, it is easy to see, that the structure of the NLC’s becomes very well visible in the negative!
So that was one of my first attempts on film photography. Besides this, I have shot more than 10 films since I started film photography in late June 2018. I will be posting about my other film photography results later!
