Shooting FILM

I’m not gonna lie and tell you cliché stories how I got into photography when I was 9 years old, and I picked my film camera. Because I didn’t:)However I do remember when I wasted roll of my fathers 35mm Zenit (I think it was Zenit), thinking that I’m creating something special. And then I was waiting to see the results, and when they showed up – I was, to say it nicely, quite disappointed:)And after that I never shot film, ever, until now. Yeah, I’ve seen people doing it and getting excited about, often mis-focus, b&w pictures (if you follow my blog, you could find only handful b&w pictures – not a big fan), and I simply thought that it’s not worth it. When I saw my “fb friend” shopping window mannequin pictures taken with film camera, I thought to myself – jeez that’s just not my thing, I’m not gonna shoot film! But when I came across Jonathan Canlas’s FIND (Film Is Not Dead) guide, I again realized, that picture is as good as person taking it, and I wanted to try to shoot film and medium format. When I saw another friend’s work (Lukasz Piech), shot with film, I knew it – I need to send my 120 roll asap:)

So yeah, I picked up Mamiya AFD 645 with 80mm 2.8 off ebay and went on Halloween weekend to shoot with Kamila. I got files ftp’ed just last Friday (remember – developing film takes time), and all I can say – it’s fun, fun, fun! I’m gonna shoot more film from now on:)I tested it – it syncs @ 1/125 of a second, so it’s like my 5d mk II:)and for sure it will be interesting to mix both – strobist techniques and film:)

http://nutritionmusculation.eu - I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your site. It appears like some of the text within your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This could be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Thanks
