Light Leaks Galore – Roll 3

Finally finished shooting my first roll off of my Canonet 28 but I didn’t really check to see the condition of the light seals before I shot it all. So with that having been said a lot of them didn’t come out at all or had some pretty bad light leaks. But I don’t mind, I think it adds some character to them and it just gives me another camera restoration project.

In and Around my House – Roll 2

After a good amount of trouble shooting I figured out how to properly load this film, I feel like an idiot for not getting it originally, but with no further ado here are a selection of photos from my second roll of film.

– Fujifilm Superia 400

Most of these were taken in the woods behind my house except for the photo of the house across the from the street of our country club which I took from a moving car so I’m definitely going to go take a better one. I think there’s a lot of photography potential for that house.

I also bought a Pandigital 35mm scanner which I used to scan all of my negatives so I wouldn’t have to buy prints and then scan them. So it saves on money and I think the photo quality is a lot higher this way. Anyway I’ll probably do a full review on it later as well as of my cameras.

Thanks for checking it out,

John

Backpacking the Linville Gorge – Roll 1

\

So early Tuesday I called the Post Office and had them hold my package instead of delivering it so I’d have it for camping, the guy on the phone wasn’t too happy about it, but he held it so it was all good.┬áCamping went great all in all. The Linville Gorge, more specifically Shortoff, is a beautiful area and if you’re near the NC Appalachian Mountains I highly suggest you go for a day hike or backpacking there.

But on to the negatives and the real reason you’re all here, film photography. The camera came loaded with film when it arrived so I had no idea whether or not it was expired so I shot with that and a second roll of my own. I thought I knew how to load the film but apparently not, so I ended up not shooting anything on the second roll which is pretty depressing but at least I now know how to load film properly.

Most of the photos that I did get back came out overexposed or a little blurry. I’m having a tough time properly focusing the lens and getting a clear with the viewfinder. But I’ve posted a couple of the photos below. The quality on the scans is terrible especially on the first one from the trip, from now I’ll probably just get the scanned cd at Walgreens or I might invest in a new scanner.

 

Thanks for reading,

John
