Got a new camera. Here’s a photo dump:
What camera did you get?
Came out well… Tiny light leak on photo 2…was it just on that one? If it’s on a few I’d perhaps replace seals (unless you like the look of course)
Thank you! The light leak was due to my being a fool and not rewinding the film properly before opening the back. Resulted in a beauty of a portrait of my partner (which I probably won’t share on here) and this mad monstrosity
Oh wow…you were lucky to not completely destroy them!
I think you have iso/ASA control on that camera? Maybe give the film a little more light than box…film seems to like that a lot. Especially in shots like shot 3 where you are losing some details in the shadows…it mostly looks after the highlights it’s self (apologies if you already know this )
It does yeah. I think photo three is taken on the Nikon, but there’s a small chance it was on my Canon Sureshot. Not certain.
That’s good advice thank you. Trying to get more into film photography so any advice is much appreciated.
Grab yourself an Olympus om1/2/4 such fun beautiful cameras for pretty little money.
Can be used in full manual or auto …only manual focus though but a real delight.
I am a fan of point and shoots though
Got an om30 from a carboot sale just before covid! Need to get to grips with it a bit more but like the roll or two I’ve shot so far.
Oh you’ll love it. And that is autofocus right?
A nice 50mm 1.8 and you’re off
Big fan of the 35mm 2.8 too which is quite cheap
It’s just come up in my memories that I took this photo of The Radio Department ten years ago today. Gig lights used to be so much nicer to shoot - the newer LED lights might be a bit brighter, but you don’t get lens flare like this, and you get flickering if you shoot with a high shutter speed
I’ve got one of those 8 lens Lomography cameras and the film winding mechanism was terrible, so I ended up with loads of really weird photos like this:
In some respects that’s quite cool, if that’s a look you’re going for, but you’d be gutted if you were looking forward to some pics and they came out like that when you weren’t expecting them to.
I’ve got a plastic camera that’s got a dodgy winding mechanism. I guess you get what you pay for
Thankfully I was just experimenting - the film I took these on was some Kodak Gold that I spotted on a dusty shelf in a local newsagent, the guy running it had completely forgotten about it and it was about 3 years past its expiry, so I bought 3 rolls for a quid.
Last shot is great. Good work.
Only on my phone, but a dredger (I think that’s what it was doing) came by me when I was out for a swim so I grabbed my phone from the beach and headed back in. The sea almost blends into the sky it was so nice out
