I started experimenting with film photography using my dad's old Canon AL-1 which I dusted off the shelf, with its 50mm lens and 70 to 200 zoom lens. For scanning and developing, I've been using the services of different labs, but with time I realized that I would find it difficult to learn about each film's inner qualities, when I had no control over the development and scanning process, with each lab having its own way of working, and two rolls of Portra 160 scanned completely different. Thus I’ve recently made the decision to start scanning at home, borrowing a low-end scanner from a friend, and I immediately realized I could be much more in control of color and contrast. Looking forward to getting a better scanner, which would allow me to get sharper images, I'm also hoping I will soon be able to develop my film at home.

Here it's a collection of stills I have shot, some of which are home-scanned. However pictures are not ordered chronologically, but according to instinct.
