Film Fascinations - Nikon FE

I've stated before that I am not a film shooter. That being said, I love my Nikon FE. I don't bring it out much - its usually on my shelf looking pretty - but when I do its always a really enjoyable experience. I'm not sure what it is about this specific camera but I really love shooting with it.

I got a bunch of film processed the other day and among the rolls were shots I took from my friend's wedding with my Nikon FE and my Rokinon 35mm lens. These shots were exposed almost 3 years ago on Illford Delta 3200 film. I scanned the prints with my crappy flat bed scanner and edited them slightly.

Film Fascinations - Hasselblad 501cm

Recently I sold my Hasselblad 501cm in order to buy my Fujifilm X-T20. It was an easy decision because, 1) I am not a film shooter - I only like to experiment with it, 2) Its really expensive to develop 120 film, & 3) I hardly ever used it and it just sat and collected dust.

Last week I gathered up 10 rolls of various different film from various different cameras to get them processed. The film were all exposed no less than 4 years ago. I had been sitting on them for years, never processing them for one reason or another. But last week it was finally time to get them developed and printed.

As previously stated, I am not a film shooter. I know my exposure triangle fairly well and I can compensate for things adequately. That being said I only like to experiment with film. So of course most of my shots were complete bunk. However there were a handful that came out of my old 501cm that I thought were all right.

Just shots of fun times with friends. That's all I ever really want to shoot anyway.
