Ektachrome 50T shots of San Jose's skyline

I have read online that for long exposure night time film photography, Tungsten-balanced slide films can provide the "best" results. So I tried it out for myself, using this ancient Kodak Ektachrome 50T, letting my Canon Rebel 2000 do the metering automatically at +1.

about Branden Frederick

I am a photographer: I have fun taking photos, and I always have.

I've had a camera in my hand my whole life, a 110 camera as a kid, and the high school's 35mm SLR later. In 2008 I spent six months doing nothing but taking photos and loved it. From that point on I've had my camera surgically attached to my hand (I lie). I went digital in the year 2000, and I came back to film in 2013. My parents tell me my photos are "nice".
