Film Photography Ain’t Easy

As part of an informal project at work, I’m shooting high resolution photographs all of my company’s campuses. I got excellent results on the shots of our Emeryville office. Unfortunately, the shots I took this week of three buildings in Santa Clara are useless. Even though I carried a digital camera and shot numerous test exposures, the resulting images – shot at 2:00 PM in the direct sun on Fuji Velvia – exhibit way too much contrast and strange color shifts. The results remind me of the overexposed, cross-processed contrasty effects used in the movie Three Kings. Defintely not what I’m after… Guess I need to re-shoot ’em all. 🙁
