Some sort of review

Last week, I finally sent my 5 film rolls to Digiprint in ParaƱaque for their film to CD services. LBC shipping fee from the Visayas was P165 + Digiprint fee of P400 for the 5 rolls (max). If I must have my film processed in Iloilo, it would cost me P200 for each roll alone. That would be 1k for the 5 rolls. Very expensive for someone who’s still a beginner in film photography. Anyway, two of the rolls were trash. That’s probably my fault. Two Kodak Max 400 were given to me months ago. I know they’re expired but I took the risk anyway and used them. Nothing came out good of the expired rolls despite what they say online that expired films do wonders. Haha. That’s if they were stored properly.

Those rolls that were given to me were probably just seen lying around. Pictures from the rolls came out underexposed and quite grainy despite having used the expired films on a sunny day at the beach.

For the fresh Fujicolor 100, the photos came out good except for the left part of the photos. I don’t know the exact cause of this but could it be a developer problem?

I say it’s a developer problem because the same thing happened to a fresh film using a different camera. The photos were originally upside down and the black/underdeveloped parts were also on the left part.

Can someone tell me what’s the exact cause of the black part of the photos? :)

Instagram // November

I get to stay home this time on a Sunday. The boyfriend is now in Manila for their early Christmas Party at work (aren’t they excited for Christmas?). These past few days were the perfect time for updates since he doesn’t check my blog anymore. I find it awkward if he read my posts. We tease each other a lot, and I hate it when he tries to quote what I wrote here. :(

November was the month that we experienced the wrath of Haiyan/Yolanda. Although we also had our heavy rains and strong winds in the area, nothing could compare the wreckage of homes and business establishments in the eastern region. I pray that by Christmas and New Year, they’ll have at least a place to stay and food to eat.

A new update – done!

I am the worst procrastinator that I know. There are so many things on my to-do list – updating this blog, working on my thesis, and my peritoneal dialysis registry forms at work, but all I’ve managed to do was to read 13 books in 3 months. I’ve got lots of free time but why do I always say there isn’t enough time to get things done?

My boyfriend’s family have this new puppies and I took photos of them. I find transferring photos from my cam to my desktop a time-consuming task that I bought a super cheap card reader from CD-R king a week ago. I should have known better than to trust this particular brand with my memory card. To make things short, I ended up reformatting my card due to corrupted files. :( But I get to save this! It’s only one pup, I know.
