My latest experiment with film

I got this set of pictures back from the chemists today and, whilst some of them had a very strong colour cast, I am nonetheless pleased by how a few of them look. Sure, they're not amazing photos in themselves but oh, the film-like qualities, even after conversion to jpegs and even though they are displayed here on the web. The prints themselves? Well, they're OK, but I have to say that most of the shots have needed some work - straightening, contrast, bits and bobs; the last one above was converted to black and white in Silver Efex Pro. But still and all, there is a quality to them - the grain, the softness, the subtle colours - that digital really struggles to attain.

A few more:

As before, the last one was converted using Silver Efex Pro - I love how the light, reflected off the metal of the railings, is rendered in black and white. I think it is more than nostalgia that makes me like them - they somehow seem more human than digital files.

My trouble is

when I'm confronted with a request for headshots, say, I can't just stop there I have to start experimenting. I mean, you wouldn't put this on Spotlight or the IMDb now would you? Ah well, I wouldn't do it if I couldn't, if you see what I mean. Above is the ever-beautiful Claire-Monique Martin taken on Friday. Other photographs were procured.
