surrender to the strawberries

33 comments



camera: Olympus OM-10, film: Kodak Ultramax 400.

I got my latest roll of film developed, and just picked them up today. Can't say I was thrilled seeing only less than half of the 24 exp roll resulted in some decent photos *sigh*, but I guess it's still better than nothing (ugh, can't wait to stock up on loads of cheap 36 exp film when I go to Indonesia!). I've also come to the realisation that I like taking photos of food, and I'm glad that these 3 came out alright. I took each one on a different day, but obviously I have a thing for strawberries and strawberry flavoured treats.

From top: a bowl of strawberries; a macaron from Lindt; a delicious "Wimbledon" strawberries & cream cake (chose it for the name alone!), also from Lindt.

These photos are great! Film for me is tricky, which is why I stick to digital... but there's still something very cool about film.

Strawberries are so tasty!

kodak ultramax 400 ive always considered using this..but i used fujifilm colour 200

would u recommend kodak film?

and yes i use the olympus om 10 too


what aperture did u use for these closeup shots i was wondering becuz whenever i use my 1.8 on shots like this...the foucs is off...so i have to resort to using the 2.8

Beautiful photos! They all look delicious. And I had no idea that Lindt makes macarons! I wonder if that means we'll be seeing them in the States soon. That would be exciting.

So sorry half your roll didn't come out the way you wanted. That happened to me quite a bit when I first started taking photos. Sometimes when I look back on those photos I didn't like at first, I actually like them now. ;)

Emily, Resplendent Tranquility said...

Oh, you certainly have a knack for photographing food with film. I love how soft these turned out making the delicious treats seem almost dreamlike :)
