Canon 1000f - Kodak Ektar 100 film

Almost finished my film reviews and today it's another no brainer combo, my Canon 1000f using Ektar film.

STATS
29 keeps 7 fails

Fail Reasons
The fail reasons were not having a fast enough shutter for pet photography - can't believe I keep forgetting that :p I also had a couple of shots overexposed and a couple underexposed

Things to Remember
Using an aperture of 3 or more for portraits really helps with focus issues (thanks Dani again!).
Using AV on this camera at night with the built in flash left some happy accidents of light trails :)
The flash was able to exposure our faces but the shutter which stayed open for what felt like a minute let in all those pretty light streaks :) Also remembering to overexpose by two stops seems to be the winning formula!

I feel like I've learned a lot over the last year or so and am super excited to keep learning and experimenting :)

  3. this is so interesting. i actually took my first film with my konstrucktor and i am so afraid of how it's going to turn out. the camera itself doesn't have a lot of settings to play around with but i just feel like they'll be all blurry or .. i don't know... i guess i'll just have to develop them as soon as i'm done (which btw i can't really tell with the camera.. major design fail, i think) to find out!

    1. I can't wait to see your results Jane! If the camera doesn't have a lot of settings they usually work best with a lot of sunlight - that's been my findings with more toy-ish film cameras. They're also open to lots of fun results - I think that's why I like them :)

  4. I'm sure you already know them, but there are Depth of Field calculators (like this one), more useful with analog cameras where you have only one try for shot. You can play with it and experiment with different focals and distances. While preparing Anna&Albert weeding two years ago, I experimented with this tool to discover which is the minimum apperture I am able to use without fearing I may not get the subject focused due to my shaking hand when being under stress :P

  5. This is such an interesting post! I was just gifted a Canon recently, and I love toying around with it. I think it would be really cool to experiment with different cameras, and see what type of shots I can get. Love the photos you have here, especially the one with flowers- beautiful! Wish you a beautiful weekend!
