I was inspired to post this because of Queen Bee's "Rotting Beauty." I took this a long time ago. It is a dead bird, but I don't know how it turned out blue like this. Just a Holga thing I guess.
This!I've just been reading up on Holgas. They sound problematic: I think I want one
We're bad people, Arty and me.I came across them a few days ago when I went off googling film photography stuff thanks to Terri's bad influence. You're really not helping, Arty.
They're known to sneak up on you, triss!I think I might have to stay out of this forum, lest I somehow accidentally acquire a darkroom when I'm not looking.
The eye can't estimate accurately the spectral content of the light. It is able to "correct" it in order to get a better perception of the visual information. The film doesn't make such adjustments. Shadows are usually more turned to the blue. I remember that this was very pronounced with Ektachrome positive (slide) film. This was very obvious in mixed frames, with some parts directly lit by the sunlight and other parts (shadows) indirectly lit by the sky. The shadows looked more bluish than the highlights. On the other hand, some other positive films like Kodachrome, Fujichrome or Agfachrome didn't react this manner, they used to give more neutral shadows. That's why I used to prefer those emulsions over Ektachrome.No! As a matter of fact, it was on the same roll as many others that had the other one I posted, and many others that turned out very clear! SO WEIRD. Some had nearly perfect color.

ok. This is where the learning kicks in. Terms to look up. I know nothing about photography.
