San Diego 2021 Pt. 2

This entry has been sitting in my drafts for months and I finally got around to finishing it. The last few weeks have been crazy trying to meet project deadlines at airports I've never worked at before. Lots and lots of late nights, but I can finally see the light.


My second roll from San Diego was shot on Fuji 400h with the same gloomy condition as the Kodak Gold roll. When I got my scans back from the lab, I was surprised by the cyan cast all the shots had. I'd be lying if I said I didn't hate it. I've shot 400h before, and it did not look like this.

I knew 400h tends to be on the cooler side. I asked some friends who scan their own film if it was my shooting settings or environment that caused it. They agreed that the cyan was a little much. Apparently, it's up to the experience of the lab technician. I decided to do a comparison experiment and sent the processed film to the main lab I use.

Check out the comparison shots below. Honestly, some shots I preferred are from the first lab, and others, the second.
