This time around, I shot with a roll of Fujifilm Superia X-TRA 400. I made sure to set the ISO on the camera to match the speed of the film — something I forgot to do for the first roll. There were definitely more keepers — possibly because it’s relatively easier to shoot with color film. Either way, I may just order scans next time around. That didn’t cross my mind until I realized how much I was paying for prints. Also, a film I plan to use in the near future — Kodak Portra 400 — was made for scanning. I used a spreadsheet on Google Drive to record the exposure settings displayed beneath each photo.
It was a clear and sunny day at Porsche Club of America’s High Performance Driver’s Education event at NOLA Motorsports Park this fall. The owner nicely stepped aside to allow me to take a photo of his 911. Love the interior.
I swung by the Roosevelt Hotel New Orleans to check out their always wonderful Christmas decorations. The entire lobby was lined with lights; this made for a good bokeh shot.
A Triumph Bonneville I spotted while strolling downtown. I always forget to take photos in portrait orientation.
From the background to the foreground: 8th-gen Honda Civic, Acura RSX, 1st-gen Toyota Celica, and 2nd-gen BMW 3-series — evidence that taste does change over time. This shot was taken indoors and I used a tripod since it was a 2-second exposure.
