A tiny story when using the VSCO. The sensitivety of films.

LEICA M-P (Typ 240) + Summicron 50mm f/2.0 Leitz

Couple days ago, I wrote an article about the VSCO. I didn't write on that article though, actually I play with the VSCO based on a tiny idea.

少し前に VSCO についての記事を書いた。その記事には書かなかったんだけど、実は小さなアイデアを基にして VSCO で遊んでいる。

That idea is, to use a preset of one of high sensitivity films if the photo is one taken somewhere dark. You got it? For instance, we almost never take photos on night time with a film of ISO 100, right? What I mean is that.

そのアイデアとは、暗いところで撮影された写真には高感度フィルムのプリセットを使うってこと。わかるかな?例えば夜に ISO 100 のフィルムで写真撮らないよね、って。言いたいのはそういうこと。

In addition to say something more, correctly, photos on negative films would never be like a photo above. But it's okay. This is fantasy. But if everything can be ignored the rule of photo because it's fantasy, it's too free. Even if it's fantasy, I wanted to add a rule of reality a bit. That is relation of the sensitivity of films and situation of photos taken.

There was a choice to use preset of positive films, not to use preset of negative films. But if I did so, there would be a matter. There's almost no high sensitivity films in case of positive films.

So, this is the best position between fantasy and reality, I guess.
