Havana on Film

February 20, 2020

I had a great time visiting Havana in March 2019, and have posted several blogs about it (see below for links).

In this new post I share my favourite film photos captured in Havana.

I used three types of film, as indicated below each image.

Hope you enjoy!

I captured a few frames on 120mm film with my old plastic Lomography camera...

Sliver of Light

Lomography Colour Negative 400 Film

An accidental exposure captured while visiting a produce market.

The colours on the left are from my shirt, and on the right is Cuban photographer Alfredo Sarabia, who was our very helpful guide.

The dots and numbers seen in these two images is due to the film's backing paper fusing to the film (which was well past it's expiry date).

Shades of Blue

I captured a few frames on Kodak Ektachrome as well...
