The Yashica Mat-124G is a 6×6 Medium Format twin lens reflex. This is the first roll using this camera, I had to use another camera as a make-shift light meter and all the shots were handheld.

In terms of operation it is quite different from the typical modern cameras due to the waist level viewer and adjustment knobs. I am pretty happy with the results and the square format is quite different and fun experience.

    I think there’s a bit of light leak on the “underground garage” picture (on the left). It’s the last picture of the roll and you didn’t tape it up. N00b!!

    awesome pictures, Sam! :) I love the quality of the film as well. People are teasing me of going back to the dark ages, but your photos are amazing. Keep it up.
