fragileworksgallery asked: Hey Kirk! I'm seriously considering taking a little bit of a photographic-pilgrimage-road-trip -- driving around desert southwest and shooting a few places I've never seen (Monument Valley, Death Valley, Grand Canyon, Joshua Tree). I want to shoot the entire thing on film. I haven't done too much landscape on film, so my question is, would I still want to overexpose the same as I do when shooting people (respective to the type of film I'm shooting)?
If you are shooting color negative film? Then yes, overexposure is not a bad thing. It gives you so much more room to play with the look of the photo during scanning.
Portra 400 at ISO320
Portra 160 at ISO100
Fuji400H at ISO100
Expired film? At least a 1/2-1 stop more of overexposure.
Have a great trip! I’m jealous!
