My First Rolls of Ektachrome – A Tropical Thunderstorm – By Aukje

It has been a while since I have submitted a story for 35mmc, sometimes life gets in the way of photography. This time I broke my foot, and it kept me indoors most of spring and the entire summer. So when we were able to go on a trip in last September I was keen to take a lot of film, and shoot it without hesitation. I had some catching up to do! A small bonus prompted me to buy some Ektachrome, a film I had not used before, and in the back of my head I already started thinking that I could write about my first experience in an article for 35mmc.

Ok, ok, I’m sure you’ve heard already. I am definitely behind the curve on this particular news release! It is an exciting chunk of news though, so just in case any of you out there only read my website and don’t go on social media (or maybe you just dwell with the cheeselogs?) I thought I would post a little post to vent a bit of excitement…

Kodak Ektachrome E100 – Shooting my First Rolls – Part 5 – The Journey So Far

Reading back through my posts about Kodak Ektachrome E100 so far, and indeed the comments on them, I do feel a little like I have somehow led people to believe that I’m not satisfied with the progress I have been making or have somehow found the process of learning this new film overly challenging. Of course there have been hurdles, but actually, as someone who had barely even shot reversal film before I feel like this film has treated me quite well. I’m very happy with a lot of the results and now have what feels like a full grasp as to why I didn’t get what I was expecting out of others.

Something readers of 35mmc might not know is that Kodaks new Ektachrome E100 has been available in super 8 and now 16mm. I don’t usually shoot slide film, but I do shoot a lot of super 8 and super 16.  Reversal film is very interesting to me for one reason, it makes filming, editing and projecting a movie shot on film more feasible. This is something I have wanted to do for some time now and I even began collecting equipment to do so. Before I shoot a short film though, I wanted to test out the film with the easiest way being to shoot a roll of 35mm.

Kodak Ektachrome E100 – Forgetting my Expectations & Embracing a bit of Failure

A little while ago now I shot a roll of Ektachrome E100 in a camera that turned out to be broken. The camera itself feels pretty irrelevant to this story, other than the fact that it was a manual focus SLR, it was broken and was quickly sent off for repair after I saw the results. What is more relevant is my reaction to the images verses my wife’s reaction when she happened to spot them on my computer. And then, more significantly, how my response changed to them after she commented so positively about them.
