Some of you might wonder what on earth happened to me because I’ve not been touching film for a couple of weeks already. Well I did shoot a couple of rolls but they were all for double exposure collaborations which I’ve yet to send to my partners … so you have not been seeing any film shots lately. Today I decided to take a short break in the afternoon and joined a friend for a short walk around Club St for some fun. These were shot using a roll of Solaris 200 film that I bought recently when I was at the newly opened ThirtySix shop. They do stock up on these cool negatives, so I grabbed 6 rolls of them … 2 rolls of ISo100, 2 of ISO200 and 2 more of ISO400.

The last time I used this film was quite long ago but those were expired rolls that I got dirt cheap from eBay. I loved the colors and so when I heard that Solaris will be available in Singapore … I was damn sure I’ll be shooting negatives more often now. If you look at these photos, some of them even look a little bit like cross-processed shots. Ermm … don’t they?

Fortunately we managed to finish our rolls of film minutes before it started pouring. As I have yet to get my scanner installed on my new iMac, I had to let the shop do the scanning for me. Somehow after a very long break from letting the shop do the scanning … I suddenly realise how convenient it is to let the shop do it. Hahaha. Too bad money is always the issue … so I guess I’ll have to do the scanning myself soon.

My Sunday photo partner. He looks pretty red in this photo eh? Nah … he gets even ‘red-der’ after a pint of beer!

If you haven’t tried the Solaris negatives before … maybe it is about time you stock up a roll or two. I bet you won’t regret it. 😀
