Another exam stress relief purchases, or just another excuse for me to buy new camera gear! I resisted the urge to use it till all the finals were finished and as soon as I got home I sat down, read the manual, played with the different settings and put in a roll of B&W 400 film.
The build quality is superb and even though there is a lot complain about the buttons I found it quite easy to access and use. So far the metering is dead-on but I haven’t tried some tricky scenarios yet. The viewfinder is large and bright but since it is only manual focus I have to focus my subject in the center.
A classic barbershop with interesting displays on the side.
Intersection of Dundas and Spadina.
I wish this one was in color. The streets and posters had so much festive colors while the homeless man was begging for money….
A dark alley with very strong reflections.
My high school shop teachers, Mr.Kodai and Big John.
At a Chinese grocery store. I got kicked out by another one when I took out the camera!
I realized mid-way that I should learn more about the B&W color theory but so far it hasn’t been too bad!
These all look beautiful. 2 and 5 are my favorite. Damn film is good.
Film is addictive even without inhaling all the darkroom chemicals. Come to the Dark side…
Those are amazing images, especially the alley one. How do you like shooting street with that beast?
Maybe you got kicked out because they thought you were a health inspector. ;)
NO… You did not just got a 645…
I remember when I was in school, we played the original SimCity along with…prince of persia and…oregon trail…oldschool!
