Adventures on Film :: Star Wars Exhibit

Previously I mentioned that my friend Jeff and I spent an afternoon geeking out at the Star Wars exhibit at the Discovery Science Center, and I was happy to relive that awesome feeling when I got my film scans back this week. Again, I have to say I’m so impressed with how the Kodak Ektar 100 film handled low light! Especially for this shot of an AT-AT model that must’ve been at least a foot tall:

Is it grainy? Sure, but it still looks damn good for how pitch dark it was in there. Here’s some more favorites – two different size models of the Millenium Falcon, Luke in his X-wing (complete with mini R2!), Yoda, and Padme’s kick ass fighting costume:

Jeff and I wandered the exhibit for over an hour, trying not to completely freak out over the idea that we were looking at actual costumes, props and models from the films. And we were also trying not to trample any kids. They were everywhere, and I just loved seeing the next generation of fanboys and fangirls get educated! :)
