A lake outing. Three kids, one roll, once a month.

I didn’t manage to get this post up for the monthly blog circle, but I am posting them now.  I finally made it to Macdonald, which is the only location with half decent internet, here in my French mountains.

I shot this roll back in New-England in May.  It’s roll of Ektar on my pentax 645n.  I love Ektar.  It’s known for giving reddish skin tones when you slight overexpose, but I didn’t mind the slight red tint, it gives the kids more of a sun kissed look.

We took a trip to the lake, and had it to ourselves as the water was still pretty fresh in May, then we headed to a lovely place on top of a hill for some ice cream and fries.

  1. I love Ektar! You’re right. When done just right that hint of red can look sun kissed and these are barely red! Not even noticeable if you hadn’t mentioned it. Just glowing beautiful summer skin. I’ve only shot Ektar in my 35 mm, but you’re making me want it for my MF camera too! Miss you, girlie! XO
