One of the many benefits of black-and-white photography is that you can develop and scan the film yourself within 24 hours after shooting. With colour, it can require a little more time for processing, and it’s a little different from processing black-and-white. That being said, at last, here are the shots I took during the Pride Parade of 2011. For the first time I managed to get a decent spot, despite hulking around the Yashica and a bag full of film (up to eight rolls of 220 I bought from B&H Photo – a five-pack of Kodak Portra 400). All it takes is patience and a little manoeuvring. I used all the 220 that I had ordered from online (with the exception of one roll), then went home, though I didn’t send the rolls to the lab til the twenty-fourth.
Here are the results, and the scanner has been fantastic.
Enjoy, indulge or endure.
