Back in March I shared some of my favourite shots taken with my Canon T70. I think it’s fair to say that my obsession with film photography shows no signs of dimming.
With my DSLR I critique every shot, tweaking the settings in a never-ending search for perfection. Whereas with my SLR I already know the shots aren’t going to be technically perfect, partly because it’s manual focus and my eyesight isn’t great and partly because both the camera and lens are over 30 years old. I just happily snap away and hope for the best.
Today I’m sharing some of my favourite shots taken over the last month or so. Just little snippets of our lives and things we’ve loved. We’ve had birthdays and sunshine and flowers in bloom. Moments to treasure forever.
Oh I do love love love these photographs! I need to buy myself a lovely new album to keep them in as at the moment they’re still in the sleeves from the processors and that just won’t do at all.
As for my aged camera, well it’s had a proper test-run now and everything is in perfect working order. It does tend towards underexposure but from what I’ve read I can compensate for this by setting my aperture one f-stop lower than the camera suggests.
I switched to ISO 800 film for these two rolls in hopes that my indoor shots wouldn’t be so dark but so far I can’t really see any difference between it and the ISO 400 I was using previously, so I’ve bought a Speedlite flash which hopefully will do the trick.
