24 Frames of Film:Typical Guatemalan Tienda

Rudy Giron: 24 frames of film May 2015 &emdash;

Here’s another picture from the series “Pase Adelante” of 24 frames of film with the typical convenience store, tiendas we call them in Guatemala. Tiendas usually carry the most often needed items, soda drinks, junk food next to vegetables and fruits. Sometimes they also sell freshly-baked bread twice a day, morning and afternoon. Here’s a glance at what you might find at your local tienda.

Here are some of the technical details for those who care to know. I used an expired roll of Fujifilm Superia X-tra 400 color film from 2001 on a Canon EOS Rebel XS [EOS 500] from 1993 with 28mm f2.8 lens. Some frames exposed more or less well, while others were under/over exposed. I don’t know if this is camera error or simply the film was too old. Most frames were shot at f2.8 while others at f5.6 if enough light was present.

As I mentioned yesterday, thanks to loyal reader, José de Ruiz, soon I will have two rolls of black and white film for new analog photography projects. If you like to contribute with a couple of rolls of black and white chromogenic film, follow the instructions below.
