Roll 10

Film: Kodak Tri-X 400 

Camera: Leica M7

Lens: 50mm Summicron

I think we can all agree that Yosemite is a magical place! I actually didn't shoot much digital on this trip after deciding i'd shoot at least a couple rolls of film while I was there. This time around I went with black and white after finishing off a couple frames on my last roll of color. I think Ansel Adams work played a good roll in my leaving color for a bit.  Unfortunately, this roll of film had a line that ran through the full length of the negatives just like roll 7 did. Last time the lab mentioned this was most likely from dust inside the camera that scratched each frame as I advanced the film. This time though the line is more noticeable and might be from a totally different reason. I've since cleaned out the inside of the camera, so hopefully it doesn't happen again! I did edit the line out a bit were I found it most distracting, but didn't want to spend too much time with it. 

This roll is a mix of landscapes and portraits from in the valley. I was super happy to run into and finally meet Melissa Findley who was visiting from Australia. I've been following Melissa on Instagram for a couple years now and was glad I got a great snap of her!  Overall I was happy with how things turned out. Shooting with the Leica is still a bit of a challenge. It's so simple, but i'm still relearning manual controls. I did do some minor tweaks in Lightroom with the exposure, highlights, and contrast. I do use the cameras built in meter, but I feel I rely on it to much, and should pick up a light meter, especially for portraits.

Hope you enjoy the photos from this beautiful must see place!
