What I Learned Using a Yellow Filter

Ok, so previous post seemed pretty ambitious, right? Well, after my first roll back I’d say it was a bit of a learning curve.

I can already tell where I goofed, and if you know much about photography I’m sure you’ll be quick to agree with me. Check out my not-so-great first attempt, where I managed to under-exposure nearly an entire roll.

These were all shot on Kodak Tri-X 400 pushed to 1600 with a #8 yellow filter thru a Nikon FM2.

These just go to show that not everything goes as planned. I should have stayed in more well-lit areas. Instead, I was hiking through the woods along a creek. The added under-exposure was not the look I was going for.

Where there was ample lighting, I achieved the desired look. I can’t get enough of the Tri-X grain.
