Film on Friday 3

Came across this post I had left in Draft purgatory and noticed that I had already published a Film on Friday 4.

Latest roll of film processed and scanned on Tuesday and my first from an SLR, the Olympus OM2. Overall I’m pleased with the pictures I took there were a few misfires and I made a huge mistake by rewinding my film the wrong way and then opening the film compartment. I lost the last few pictures I took at my children’s carnival. Oh well lesson learned. Lastly I’m very happy with the higher resolution scans I requested this time. Here’s a sampling of my photos, shot with Kodak Ultramax 400, with no alterations some are dark due to photographer error hopefully my skills will continue to develop and I’ll take less under exposed pictures.

 

Venice redux 21 years later

6822-023
In June I visited Venice for 3 nights with my family, it was my second visit and I enjoyed it more than my first. It may have been a combination of travelling with my kids, being more relaxed, and having a larger budget in my late forties than my mid twenties.

Film on Friday4

The first roll from the Pentax K1000 came back to me yesterday and there are some shots I really like. Several photos are darker than I expected and I don’t know if the cause is I underexposed, the type of film, the scanning process, or a combination of all. Having lots of fun though shooting my cameras and I will be posting more from this last bunch of rolls I had processed and scanned.

All photos from the Pentax K1000 using Kodak Ultramax 400 film.

Midweek Minolta 

My Minolta XG-1 is the first of my growing obsession/collection to die. I only shot 1 roll of film with this one. At first I thought the batteries had died so I put in a new set but no go, the meter did not light up as soon as I pressed the shutter. Looked online for probable causes and possible solutions the consensus being not worth it to fix unless I have a sentimental attachment to it. Too bad it’s a nice looking camera especially with a 28mm Rokkor lens on it and I had wanted to shoot a roll of color next but no can do.

Next shooter is my Olympus Pen EEs, I’m attempting to document my gear as I got them chronologically. This is a half frame camera so out of a 24 exposure roll I ended up with 48+ shots. Interesting camera because the cells around the lens determine the exposure level for the photo. I have a roll developed and scanned from this camera, next time I process film I will have to specify to the lab I’d like two shots per picture and if they could scan my negatives at a higher resolution. All pictures except those of the camera taken by the PEN EEs

Here’s another shooter from my gear collection.

Yashica Electro 35 GS produced from 1970 to 1973. I bought it in mid November 2016 but I have not shot it yet. (shot with an iPhone 6)

Gotta include a pic of Mr. Button

A rare event for me watching the sunrise at Diamond Head. (shot with an iPhone 6)
