In preparation for a colour film photography class I am shooting neon street signs and Christmas lights. 

Colour film is a whole new ball game.

 I am using my digital SLR camera as a light metre. Meaning: once I have an ISO, shutter speed and aperture

that produces I pleasing image, I apply the same settings to my Pentax 35 mm film camera. I do this because I do

not fully trust the light meter in my Pentax. There are a lot of variables.

In theory, the shots on the Pentax should be near replicas of these digital shots.

Fingers crossed.

The image below was taken at Columbia University.
