hi, anyone here can tell me wat is the best way to take the esplanade in the late afternoon sun? i got a CPL and a 35-70mm and a 70-300mm.
Is ISO200 film enough?
Must i bring a tripod?
Any good locations?
Well..... all your equipments are adequate. The best thing to do is go there and shoot a roll the best way you can, firstly adhering to your heart mind and soul try to get a variety of shots, try to get the shots scanned, post here and get further comments.
ISO200: anything below ISO 800 will do since ISO800 is too much noticeable grain for landscapes.
TRIPOD: u must determine your own limits of handholdablility. some people can shoot landscapes at 9pm at night with ISO400 film, f5.6, 1/4 s. others need to use tripod as early as 4pm with ISO400 film, f11, 1/30 s. most are in between
GOOD LOCATIONS: u need to walk n walk n walk to find the angle u like best, although most of the stereotypical angles already look good enough to most people.
You can ask the lab to scan to CD.
KC Ginza I use charge $9.90 for processing and scan to CD, same price for slide and negative. I will later pick those I really like after accumulated them to make into 4R or 6R print.
