Pentax A3 Film Photography - #3

I have finally gone through the second roll of Fujicolor C200 film and had it developed and scanned last week.  Got some very nice photos out of it!

I am particularly excited because I only realized that some of my Pentax lenses are 58mm diameter; the same as my Canon lenses and that now I can use my Cokin system and screw on filter on both! Some of my Pentax and Sigma lenses are 55 and 52 and I will be buying the appropriate size Cokin adaptor for them shortly.

As with the last shoot with this film, Fujicolor C200, I am very happy with the colour it gives.  I use minimal editing digitally on the scanned result, and crop when needed. I stick to only using digital edit methods that I know equate to darkroom processing methods.  One day I hope to have my own darkroom but that is a way off from now.

These were taken using a Pentax SMC F 35-105  f4-22 zoom. It is the first time I have used it and it gives a lovely result!  I can't wait to use it for my next Street Photography project which will be in Black & White so keep your eyes peeled! 

I hope that you all have been well in your part of the world and life is treating you good.
