Dracula. In film.

I traveled in a time machine to 1984 and picked up my film today. It took me a bit to figure this out, but the Pentax ME Super is lovely for outdoor photos on a sunny day. And a great camera for taking thousands of pieces of gum on a face.

Mannequins in film

I really like the way these film photos turned out from the old Pentax ME Super. Definitely an outdoor camera on a sunny-ish day. Judging from the weather over the next few days, I should really be making the most of my lunch half hours and get some photos in.

Another thing I really liked today was a blender recipe I found in the Gorilla Food cookbook. The base is carrot juice,

Soccer in film

Soccer players playing soccer. In film!

Good news in the film department! Out of a possible 24 photos, 10 were underexposed. That means 14 mostly looked to be the right exposure! Not bad at all. The cost of developing film is not too bad – $10.44 for 24 photos. I got mine done at London Drugs. The only thing I’m unsure of at this time is the cost of film. I have some, so I didn’t have to buy any today. I forgot to ask. I’ll get it next time. Also, any time I see expired film at thrift stores, I pick them up. I haven’t seen any recently, but will start looking again.

Pentax camera. Take 1.

Pentax

I dusted off my Dad’s Pentax today. He sent me his cameras last year and since we were going to Hope for a little photo walk, I thought I’d give this camera a try. It came with a 50 mm lens as well (my favourite). My dad sent me 2 camera bodies and this one was in the bottom of the box. When I opened up this camera (it was packed in a black leather case) I noticed this piece of a film box. Woohoo! There was old film in the camera! I looked at the number of photos taken and it was at #3. Awesome. You can see the Arabic writing on the piece of cardboard, so this means the film would definitely be expired and possibly 20 years old or older!

We drove out to Hope and I alternated taking photos with the Pentax and with my DSLR.

At least the chickens are in focus

September 1, 2013

Perhaps it would have been prudent to read the manual before I started shooting with the new-to-us Pentax ME Super film camera. After all, it is available on the internet. But no. I did not. Instead, I rushed in and just started shooting. What can I say? It’s just my nature. What did I learn […]
