Canon Rebel 2000 with Lomography Color 800

posted in: Photography | 0

After the success of shooting Lomography Color Negative 800 with my Minolta X-700, I decided to give it a try in my Canon EOS Rebel 2000.

As with the roll in my Minolta, I shot a portion of the images one-stop overexposed. But I started out shooting at ISO 800 so I would have some examples of what it would look like at the recommended speed.

Holly and I went for a walk in University City, and I used my Canon EF 17-40mm f/4 lens.

I really like how this photo looking up at 2 buildings turned out. I didn’t realize at the time how perfectly the overhead wire would separate the buildings.

I’m also pleased with how this picture of a group of tulips came out. The wide angle lens really worked well in this situation. It’s hard for me to believe that, at one time, I wasn’t sure if I liked the 17-40mm lens, but I have certainly come to appreciate it.

The next time I went out, I switched the ISO to 400 but continued using the 17-40mm lens. This was just a short lunchtime walk around our neighborhood. It was a rather cloudy day, but I think I was still able to get some decent pictures.

For whatever reason, I quite enamored with this picture of a basketball left behind on a court. Using the wider end of the 17-40mm lens makes the ball feel lonely.

I finished the roll, still shooting at ISO 400, on a walk Holly and I took to Lemon Hill. For this walk, I switched to my Canon EF 50mm f/1.8. The only reason I switched to this lens was because I knew I was close to the end of the roll so I wanted to bring my Nikon Z fc along as well. I didn’t have room in my camera bag for the 17-40mm lens. I’ll post the images I took with the Nikon later.

I have been really pleased with the images I’ve gotten with Lomography Color Negative 800. I have used a fair amount of Lomography’s films so I’m a little surprised it has taken me so long to try this one. Definitely glad I got around to it.
