Came back from Maldives with a lot of exposed film. Looking forward for a lot of picture with blue sky and blue sea. Yeah, I was expecting that. But then after developed and got the films from lab, I just too shocked to see the result. How come? Look like those slide films were over exposed!!! I tell myself that there was a possibility of hope to get great picture from my scanning.
But I was wrong, no blue sky, no blue sea, just overexposed sky with too much white area. I just keep optimistic and telling myself that I still have hope.
First time I encounter with this kind of problem. Lomography X-pro Chrome 100 and Kodak EBX, is it the flat blue sky or blue sea are just too harsh for you? Or the lab ruin my film? I don't know, I still don't know the problem.
So the possibility? One, hot sun in Maldives was just too bright for normal setting of ISO 100 for slide film, I should set it as ISO 200. Two, the lab can't handle the cross process well. Before this, result from the lab is quite impress, maybe because of change of chemical? I should try other lab. But there is only 1 lab in Kuantan. The only choice for me is to send to KL next time. Three, the problem of camera light meter. I am not sure of this, maybe the light meter calculate the wrong measurement.
What's the fourth possibility?
