[ad_1]Shooting Film Is Addictive We have been enjoying a return to film photography here at Photo Rangers HQ. I've mentioned before how shooting film causes me to slow way down and only take 'keeper' shots. I'm getting addicted to the whole film process and loving the rituals around selecting the film, loading the camera and careful shooting. Then waiting .... waiting .... waiting ... for the results.
I've 'acquired' a few too many film cameras over the past weeks. Seriously, not sure how they all popped up at the front door but, I've got them now. One of the real joys of shooting with these vintage cameras is seeing the unique characteristic of each's shots. They each have their own unique personality.
Last week I shot with a very old (1960's) Pentax Spotmatic 500. Waiting for the film to be developed and returned is a little like waiting for Santa Claus. I had the developed shots return today and I was really impressed and very pleased with some of the light leaks in this old camera. It throws a pink/purple flare onto the film every so often creating unexpected results.
We will host a free film photography workshop/shoot in the near future. If you are interested we can let you borrow one of our cameras(I think there's around 15 in the house between Celie and I) and we would charge cost for the film - usually around $5-7 dollars for 36 exposure roll.
We buy our film through WALKENS House of Film and use Analogue Academy for developing.
Here are a few shots using Agfa Vista 400 film.
