Shooting Fujicolor C200 colour film at Blackpool is a great opportunity to capture the town’s vibrant colours and atmosphere. This budget 35mm film is versatile and ideal for capturing the seaside town’s bright colours and lively atmosphere. Below is a selection of sample images of Blackpool taken with Fujicolor C200 35mm colour film.
Blackpool is a seaside town in Lancashire, England. It is a popular tourist destination known for its sandy beaches, amusement parks, and iconic landmark “The Blackpool Tower“. The town is also famous for its Illuminations, a spectacular light show every year from early September to early January.
When shooting with Fujicolor C200 film in Blackpool, keep in mind the unique lighting conditions of the seaside town. The bright sun, sparkling sea, and colourful attractions can all impact your shot’s exposure and colour balance. To get the best results, experiment with different exposure settings and maybe use a polarizing filter to reduce glare and enhance colours.
Fujicolor C200: A Versatile Budget Film
Fujicolor C200 is a budget colour-negative film produced by Fujifilm. The film is moderately sensitive to light (i.e., rated ISO 200), making it suitable for many lighting conditions.
Moreover, the film is notable for its fine grain and natural colour reproduction. These film characteristics make it popular among amateur photographers who want a versatile and reliable film for everyday use. It also has a wide exposure latitude, which means it can tolerate a range of exposure settings without losing detail or colour accuracy.
Shooting Fujicolor C200 Is Rewarding
One of the benefits of shooting film is that it encourages a slower, more deliberate approach to photography. This way of shooting can be rewarding when capturing the colourful scenes of Blackpool. So, take the time to explore the town’s many attractions, from the beach and promenade to the amusement park and historic architecture. Look for interesting compositions, striking contrasts, and unique moments that capture the essence of Blackpool.
In addition to shooting in daylight, you may also want to experiment with shooting at night. During the annual Illuminations, the town transforms into a dazzling display of lights and colours. Fujicolor C200 film can also produce great results in low-light conditions, particularly when combined with a tripod and longer exposure times.
Overall, Blackpool offers plenty of opportunities to create memorable images that capture the town’s unique atmosphere.
