Roll 27 – Olympus XA and Cinestill

After seeing the wonderful results on 52 rolls, I wanted to try my hand at Cinestill too. I loaded it up in my new favorite camera: the Olympus XA, and headed to the beach for the weekend. Unfortunately, I am not immediately in love with the results I got with this film. There are a few that I liked (shown below), but generally I am feeling kind of “meh.” My negatives were quite scratched. And there was a bit too much grain for my liking.

The problem, I realized, is that I didn’t shoot this roll under the right lighting conditions. For my next roll I will follow the instructions and shoot using the correct lighting.
