Game Time Inside the Rogers Centre

Alvin’s Film Follies (Part XII – A Visit To Toronto’s Rogers Centre)

I recently was invited to attend an event at the Rogers Centre which included watching the Toronto Blue Jays (as you may have seen in my Snappy Friday teaser).  It was a great day to be out and enjoy a ball game too, although the skies were much more impressive the day before.  In the past few weeks, I have come to the conclusion that there is something wrong with Penny, so I borrowed my son’s camera (a Pentax ME Super) to see what sort of photos I would get on this day.  Let’s just say, paired with my fisheye lens and a cheap 80-200 telephoto, I was left pretty impressed.  Enjoy the pics I have posted, within.

The film used for the day – FujiFilm Superia 200 and Kodak Portra 400.  I went to my trusted friends at DC to process and scan the film (and because both films are C-41, I had them back on Friday!).  In the photos, I have noticed that the Fujifilm is a lot more red than the Kodak (very neutral), making the Fujifilm more ideal for use with landscape shots or general photography – in my opinion, I would not use the Superia for critical portraits of people.

Please leave us some feedback below, like our FB page, or just like this post.  It would be better too if you can follow us, so you won’t miss out on stuff you really can miss out on…lol.  But seriously, we’d like to know your thoughts, good or bad.
