My goal here is to share with you my struggles and victories along with shooting film. I have shot maybe 3 rolls of film in my life but never with a full manual no assistance camera. I am going to post all 10 images I shoot on the roll meaning I am also going to waste your time with the uglies. I will try to explain with the best of my memory anything that stood out with each shot.
On the record I am beyond surprised on how well these images came out exposure wise. I expected all dark or all bright images, it turns out film is much more forgiving than polaroid.
Image #1: What you don't see is me struggling trying to figure out which step I had skipped because the camera wouldn't fire.
Image #2: I was worried about shooting at 1/30th of a second with the big camera but seems to do just fine. I love the color of the wooden bench!
Image #3: I wanted to see how the light would reflect back or flare on film. The camera captured the image exactly how I saw it.
Image #4: It appears that I got too excited to shoot this one so I shot one vertical and one landscape forgetting to advance the film... DOH!
Image #5 and 6: I only remember taking one image of this but I think I accidentally placed the camera on a timer mode rather than an actual second value. In my defense I was rushed to take this photo.
Image #7: Seems like I nailed the exposure after practicing with the polaroid back. Up until this image all light data was guessed.
Image #8: A unique seat found in an alley near my house. This is the only image I took this day walking a few miles with the camera.
Image #9: If you look close enough you will see that I double exposed this image once again. The object on the left in the photo is a closeup of the armchair from the previous shot.
Image #10: This is a shot which I did not expect to come out. I took a polaroid of the same exact scene and it was way over exposed. I gave up mentally on this shot till I saw it today!
