About 9 years ago, I spent some time in Thailand photographing seascapes. At the time, I recently went back to film after shooting digital for a few years.
My metering technique was flawed at best, and all these slides were grossly underexposed. The interesting thing was that the massive underexposure brought out incredible colors.
No editing was done to any of these images…these are the straight scans.
That is one of the main reasons I shoot film, you are working with a living breathing entity. Had I been able to see my ‘mistake’ at the time, I would have immediately corrected it, but then I would have missed out on this great lesson and these interesting images 🙂
Who says photography has to represent reality?
