Some initial indoor test shots featuring Bob:
Looks a bit over exposed, but the metering seems to work ok on the FG
This manual focus thing is hard! Lets call it an 'artsy' shot ;)
And the best shot from the roll... Jenn!
Now, I've been friends with Jenn for a long time she often comes along on some photowalks and ends up in a number of pictures as a result, but quite frankly I think that's the best photo I've ever taken of her.
Some general thoughts on shooting film:
- It takes longer. No sh*t sherlock! But seriously, people give you more time. You take more time (especially with a manual SLR). It takes more time to get it back.
- The anticipation is very old school. In an age of instant results, actions, feedback, sometimes the waiting is ok.
- I like it. Sure, there is a novelty factor, but I feel that I'm already learning more about shooting. Having a 50mm fixed lens probably helps. Don't get me wrong, I'm not giving up my digital gear. But I think I'll keep dabbling in this film thing some more. I've got 6 rolls of colour and then it's onto some black and white I think.
Thanks for looking.
