When I bought my first film camera it was a process of trial and error. I thought in this instance to capture moods, my moods. And with a couple of rolls of Fuji Provia and Fuji Acros, I took my trusty OM-2n to task.
I took a walk on this foggy night on Melrose Ave with my Contax G2 rangefinder film camera with a 45mm f/2 lens using my favorite film Fuji Acros 1600.
It’s a shame Acros 1600 is no longer in production. It is a versatile film with a sweet grain.
Shooting with film is fun and forgiving especially with a simple manual focus SLR. You’d have to wait to see what develops (no pun intended). But that’s okay because when seeing your prints for the first time, a new world opens up.
Suddenly those frames come alive with imagined possibilities which helps you strive to become a better photographer.
Soon your compositions turn into marvelous stories that can be shared for a very long time.
