My First Roll of Film
A few days before we left South Africa I bought my dad the film camera he started out photography with as a gift - the Pentax K1000. He was going to visit us in Bangkok on our way to Bhutan so the plan was to give it to him there. I really wanted to give it a go before I gave it to him as I’d never shot a roll of film before so I took it for a spin in Bangkok the day before he arrived.
The camera came with a 50mm F2 lens and I bought a roll of Fuji ISO400 film for it as it was the only film I could find in the short time I had.
Everything is manual on the camera - the shutter speed, aperture and the focus so it was great to test out my photography knowhow! I was still pretty relieved to see I managed to get some shots that where in focus and more or less exposed correctly.
Until I am able to get my own film camera, I thought of simulating that feeling with my DSLR every now and then. Switch the display off. Shoot on Manual. Manual focus. Fix the ISO to either 100/200/400. Then go out and only shoot 36 images and only look at those images on your computer later that evening/day. A photo challenge perhaps?
